The hash coordinates were in the woods a few hundred feet from the road, so it was very likely to be out of bounds. Zubenelgenubi was going to shoot for the geohash anyway, to explore the bikeability of a potential future route to Toms River.


Shortly before reaching the hashpoint, it became clear from the echo of gunfire that going for the geohash coordinates would be particularly inadvisable. The woods were the territory of the Central Jersey Rifle and Pistol club. While the shooting ranges were not visible at all and probably much further from the road than the hashpoint, the report of pistols was quite loud at the roadside. Other than Fort Dix, there are not many hash points which would be worse to visit.

It would have been fun to shoot four targets with a clip each with the letters "xkcd" but I am both not a member of the club, and a very poor shot, so I just shot a few photographs and headed on.
