Today's hash location appears to be right on the divider between Troy Athens HS and St. Petka Serbian Orthodox Church in Troy.


Bill^2: I'm going for the gusto this evening. The list of achievements I hope to attach to this expedition:

  • Bicycle Geohash (will be riding from my house ~4mi NW of hash location)
  • Drag-Along Geohash (will be literally towing my son behind in the Burley)
  • Holy hash achievement (hash is on the grounds of the aforementioned church)
  • Tron achievement (will document via handlebar-mounted camera on 6-second interval shooting, Google Pedometer map to be posted.

We'll plan to be there around 6:30pm. Hope to see others as well!



Bill and son Brayden left home by bicycle at 6:30. After traversing sidewalks south and then east, we arrived at the hash location, which turned out to be just inside a walled-off gully between Troy Athens High School and St. Petka Serbian Orthodox Church. After locating as close as we could to the hash location, we got pictures of us with the church in the background, a picture of the high school beyond the wall, and our conveyance.

Continuing on the road we arrived on, we made our way back north and west (bypassing a possible Geosquishy Achievement on the way at a 7-Eleven a mile north of the hash location), through neighborhoods and to a local grocery. Supplies in hand (and eventually in the back of the Burley), we returned home. Map of our path can be found at MapMyRide.com for validation of Tron achievement.

I also used CHDK and the Ultra Intervalometer to shoot one image every 5 seconds during our expedition. Stop-motion video is now posted to YouTube.
