This hashpoint was located off of I85 and not too far south of 285. Woodveil checked the coordinates just after 9:30 and planned to leave for the hash at 4:15.
Chris was having a conversation while waiting for one of his classes to start when the subject turned to plans for the rest of the day.
Chris: Well, I've got another class at three, but then at four my brother and I are- Hey, do you have any more classes today?
Chris: Want to go on an adventure?
I got to the Hash mere minutes after Woodveil had left. I was hoping that I had made it to the hash before they did. I left work early today to beat them to it. I drove past the mail box because there where two men parked in a pickup truck in the front yard. As I was walking back to take a picture of the mailbox, my heart sunk as I noticed the chalk already on the pavement. Just as I noticed that, the homeowner hopped out of his truck and asked what I was doing. I started with explaining the concept of geohashing as a scavenger hunt only with GPS. Just as I was explaining that Atlanta's finest started to roll up.
Okay, time to retell my story again with a little better explanation only now with the nice police officer listening. I guess I should have been an ambassador. After a better explanation the homeowner then agreed that since he knew that I wasn't going to break into his house, he let me take all the pictures that I wanted. The nice police officer went on his way.
I made it there about 4:55pm and left the area for Norcross about 5:15pm
