[edit] NWoodruff

I left work and drove through the center of Atlanta. What a disaster. There is a Braves game tonight and traffic is terrible. As I sit on the connector downtown Atlanta, I'm wondering if I can make it to the hash point by 7:30pm. I had received an e-mail earlier in the day from On2Wheels that he was going to attempt his first location reached Geohash tonight since it was real close to where he lived.

I gave him an estimated time of 7 to 7:30pm. He had previously said that he was going to do it earlier in the day and leave a note for me at the hash point. I got an e-mail later in the day saying that he had a babysitter and that he would be there closer to 7:30pm.

As I pulled up to the closest road access to the hash point, I saw a motorcycle. I thought that he had already beat me to the hash point. I hopped out of my truck, took a picture of my GPS and set off for the hash point.

I set off through these woods and I could hear noises of animals running all directions. Lions, tigers and bears, Oh my! Well, no, probably just deer.

I found my way to 2 feet to the hash point and nobody was there. Did they take a different way? Did I miss the meetup?

As I was taking pictures, I heard other noises coming at me. I could see someone off in the distance and took a couple of picture.

It's ON2WHEELS! We did make the meetup.

Pleasantries were exchanged and a few pictures were taken.

Since I had found an easier way through the woods to the hash point, they followed me back out.

On2Wheels then drew chalk on the street. I took a picture and then said that I would see them again at the next meet up and then drove home to Norcross.



[edit] On2Wheels

Made it to my first geohash today. I'd been emailing back and forth with NWoodruff for a couple days, and finally made it. This was made much easier by the fact that the hash point was about 4 miles from my house. I went home from work, picked up my wife, and rode my motorcycle to the hash point. I didn't know if the point was on the property of the nearest house, so I asked, and was told that the property ended at the tree line.

After a short game of 'Marco-Polo', met with NWoodruff in the woods. Took some pictures, and made our way back out. Shortly thereafter, my wife and I enjoyed a strawberry flavored squishy at a local convenience store about 0.6 miles away.
