These coordinates were in the far East of the graticule, and were directly on I20! In an Eastbound lane, just after an onramp (Exit 82, in case you were wondering). Not that it mattered much, but weather was ~68°F and overcast.



We had a break in classes and hit up the point a few minutes after 1:00. It took us a couple runs to get satisfactory evidence, and even then the closest reading we could photograph is 13.3 feet. It takes a little more timing when you're going 65 miles per hour. But what the hell, it was fun.


I-285 south bound east of the city was a parking lot at the 6pm and 7pm hour as in it had been raining heavily and there were several car wrecks. Every time I contemplated turning around and heading back for home, a gap in traffic would open up. I eventually made it past the lane closure and to I-20 heading east. I did print out a Google map to make sure I did come close as possible to the hash point. Success! I drove through the hash around 7:15pm. I did not have my camera with me. No pictures were taken :(.
