[edit] Plans

"If you don't come geohashing with me tomorrow, I'll be the only person to do the wedding anniversary geohash without their spouse."

"But do you get a special award for that?" [for anniversary hash without spouse]

This hashpoint is about five minutes from Northampton, a college town a half hour north of Springfield where people from Springfield go to have a nice dinner. My husband and I weren't planning on celebrating our tenth anniversary tomorrow, but the extremely easy hashpoint gives us a great excuse.

[edit] Expedition

Speed racer. The hashpoint was right in the middle of a picturesque road of homes and farms. We didn't even slow down the car. I did see the GPS go to 0.0 distance, but couldn't get a good picture of it, because the flash kept reflecting off it.

After driving through the hashpoint twice, we went and had a pleasant childfree dinner at Cafe Esselon, very near the hashpoint.

It turns out there's no ribbon for geohashing on your wedding anniversary, but
