[edit] Expeditions

Fresh off of the previous day's expedition, We were anxious to know the new hashpoint. A quick check found it to be West of town, very near I20, and inside of a large building. A further inspection using Google's Street View revealed that building to be none other than a liquor store (which immediately opened up a Pandora's Box of geohashing possibilities. I'm sure you can think of a few). But being a bit underage, we found it quite fortunate that the actual hashpoint was located close* to the perimeter of the building, near some parking spots. *close in this context meaning inside of ten feet.

Quickly perusing the Wiki for possible achievements before we left, we settled on a GeoSquishy attempt. The drive to the point was fairly uneventful, and we stopped at a gas station just before the hashpoint to acquire the necessary weaponry. A short half-mile drive from there brought us to the actual hashpoint, where we proceeded to count parking spaces until we determined definitively which spot on the side of the liquor store was nearest to the hash. Then we leaned against it, drinking our Squishees and basking in the warm, glowing, warming glow of another successful geohash.
