This geohash location was in the middle lane of a major three lane road in Sydney's southern suburb of Taren Point. Time to conquer this virgin graticule!

It's Christmas Eve, and the hash location has finally fallen in an accessible area in the nearby Sutherland graticule. This graticule has only a very small portion of the graticule as land (at a guess less than 5%), and of that the majority is dense and inaccessible bushland. So to have a hashpoint that fell directly in the middle of a major road in the graticule was an early Christmas present.
I set out for the location which was about an hour from where I live. Along the way the weather turned overcast, and the rain began to fall lightly. But I didn't care. It was Christmas Eve, and this was my first geohashing expedition in exactly two months. Nothing was going to stop me from conquering this virgin graticule.
I arrived at the hashpoint just before 2.30pm, and ate some McDonalds for lunch (directly next to the hash location) so that I could hang around to see if any other Geohashers would arrive. No-one else showed up, so I crossed the road a couple of times passing right over the hashpoint and took the mandatory photos.
Now it was time to do a drive-by. Traffic was heavy at the intersection, but I passed over the hashpoint with ease. It's good to be back geohashing! Merry Christmas everyone!
