Woodveil had this plan in the works for over a month. We had our eye on the elusive Time-Traveller geohash, as we were situated right next to the boundary between the Eastern and Central time zones. It would be about 60 miles as the crow flies, but since we had I20 it was only a matter of waiting for the right locations. The morning of Friday, March 6, our wait ended. The Sunday coordinates in the Atlanta graticule were less than 100 feet off of a road, and fairly close to I20. Exactly one degree West of there, the coordinates in the Anniston, Alabama grat were on I20. In the Westbound lane. After we could get to interstate, we'd have nothing left to do but race straight towards the hash at 75 mph. This was the golden opportunity we had been waiting for. Amply prepared, we left for the Atlanta coordinates just after 11:30, EST.
Getting to this hash was only a prerequisite to our second hash, and we made it there around 12:30. The hash itself was in the Western side of the graticule, and just in some woods. We got there without incident and snapped some pictures. We waited around for a few more minutes, to give us a time window in which to drive over the second hash. We would only be at that second hashpoint for a couple of seconds, and we didn't want to fail at the Time-Traveller achievement because we were early. Then we picked up some geotrash and hopped back into the car. We started a timer on Chris' iPod when we left that hash, and that was the clock we'd be racing. We had 64.5 miles and 60 minutes to make history.
Very good pose. Minus the shirt and lower angle, we would've gotten the Calendar Girl Achievement.
