I've been wanting to get the consecutive hash point award for some time. I was eagerly awaiting the 9:30am market open this morning. The hash point is in Jonesburo. Not that far out of my way. I can make it. I worked with my eTrex a little and found out how to make it do turn by turn directions using Google maps.
I packed up my stuff at work at 5pm and headed out for the hash point. The hash point being on the south side of Atlanta, I would have to make my way through the center of Atlanta. That would put me on the south side about 6:15pm. I made it to the hash point at 6:30pm.
I inadvertently drove past the has point because I wasn't watching the eTrex. I had a view of what the hash point looked like from Google's street view. I was trying to watch for the house, I didn't recognize the place from Google street view. I looked down and I was already 290 feet past the point. I pulled my truck over to the side of the road and walked back.
The hash point was only 10 or so feet on to someones property. I didn't appear that any one was home. I didn't walk down to knock on the door either. I took a few pictures and then went on my way.
I was on my way back to Norcross by 6:45pm
