[edit] Expedition

This is part two of a double geohash by Manu, Reinhard and Wischi. The 1st part can be found here

Manu and Reinhard continued their journey to Ellsworth in Maine, which is close to the Acadia National Park that they wanted to visit. Halfway, after passing Portland, on I-295 they came close to Brunswick, where today's 2nd hashpoint was located - even more important since 43N/69W was a virgin graticule! After having looked at the satellite picture, they weren't sure, how easy they could get to the hashpoint from the north, but it looked perfect from the south, where there seemed to be a big parking lot of some kind of market. The nearby building (8 Industrial Pkwy,Brunswick, ME) then turned out to be a factory plant of L.L.Bean, but there wasn't any sign forbidding Manu and Reinhard to use the quite empty parking lot for geohashing purposes. The railway they had to cross right behind it was far visible, so they could get to the other side safely and found the hashpoint a few meters behind, between trees and brushwood.
