My UU mens group is doing their winter hike on January 10th, and I've talked them into taking a crack at the geohash if it's somewhere reachable. Of course, we'll have no idea where it is until Friday morning, but we'll make a decision by noon Friday as to whether we'll try it. In any case, we're going to be at Sourlands in Hillsborough, so that will be our "alt" if the real geohash is unreachable.

The good news: the 2009-01-10 geohash is just off Passaic Avenue, north of West Caldwell. West Essex Park is close by (The nearby blue tag on the Google map), and has what seems to be an excellent "interpretive trail", with an online guide to what we may find along the trail. The bad news: The NWS is predicting 2 to 4 inches of snow for Saturday, with high temps just below freezing, so we'll need to dress warm.

The response from the UU group is that many are not interested in the nature walk, because of the expected snow, so that is officially postponed until January 17th.

My friend Mike and I may still try to make it to the geohash, we're going to play it by ear.

Snow was significant enough near the hashpoint site that travel would have been hazardous, enough to convince us to hold off until the 17th.
