I had checked the Atlanta map this morning for the hash point and it was way too far south for me to make it today. I then check this graticule and it was about 6 tenths of a mile out of my way driving to the Interstate from work on my way home. There is no reason why I shouldn't make this hash point.


I didn't need my eTrex for this hash point because it is not that far out of my way when driving home from work. I noticed that the hash point was in the back yard of someones house. I drove up on the house and took a picture of the eTrex showing 159 feet to go in case permission was not granted to access the property.

I knocked on the door of the house and James answered the door. I introduced myself and explained the world of Geohashing to him. James is a very friendly man in his late 50's to early 60's. He granted me permission to access his back yard and stayed by his front door.

I walked into his back yard in search of the hash point only to find out that the actual hash point is under a large wet bush. Me being in a suit and tie did not feel like getting on my hands and knees to make it under the bush only to get soaked. I settled on 4 feet to go and thought "Close Enough".

I took a picture of my eTrex, the bush and the back yard. I then made my way back to the front door and thanked James. I let him keep the google map and the ambassador hand out that I printed up. I also informed James on how to find this website and then made my way back to my truck to go home.
