South of Cartersville Georgia, on a ranchers land.


I took time at lunch to drive over to south Cartersville. I followed Google map direction and the last road that Google said to turn down was actually a driveway. It had a mail box at the end of it.

I carefully drove up the steep driveway in my truck. As I crested the small hill, I noticed a man with a truck and a trailer, he was loading horses into the trailer. I got out and introduced myself.

I explained some about Geohashing and kept pointing to the Google map that I had in my hand. He started to look bewildered about my explanation. I started to explain that people all over the world do this every day as a way of a spontaneous adventure.

He then looked like he had a question to ask so I stopped talking. He then said, "So, to get this straight, you said all of that to ask to walk over there and take a picture?" I then said "Well, yea." Without a pause he said "Okay" and went back to loading the horses. Permission granted?

I walk over to the fence where he has a rope pulled between two fence posts. I duck under the rope and walk the 250 feet to the hash point. I do the GPS dance and take a picture or two.

I walk back to my truck and the guy asked if I found what I was looking for. I said "Yes, I did and thanks." He says, "Have a nice day".

I then drive back to Kennesaw and back to work.
