I was a little concerned about making this Geohash and the string of consecutive hashes come to an end. It was way far west for me. It was almost as far west in the graticule as you could go. I live almost as far east in the graticule as I could go. Mapquest said that it was a 58 mile drive for me from work. That was using the interstates. The Atlanta Braves Baseball is in playing in Atlanta tonight at 7:05pm and I feared that traffic on the interstate system would be a nightmare.
I found an option on Google maps that you can select for walking. Don't trust those direction. They lead to dead end streets. But, after driving around to find alternates, it cut 20 miles out of the trip. Still traffic was bad going west anyway.
There were no fences to jump no back doors to trespass. People are allowed to walk onto the golf course. I walked onto the golf course and found a place where it lead to one of the roads. I then walked along the road till I found the road where the hash point was.
I am pretty sure that the security guard was trying to protect the 100's of foreclosed homes on this property. The home on the hash point was in foreclosure. There was only one home on that street that wasn't in foreclosure.
I didn't break any laws in making it to this hash point.
