20 feet off a long gravel driveway, near Tyrone and Fayetteville.

I rode my motorcycle out to Tyrone after work. Didn't have any problems getting close, except many of the roads in this area are gravel, which my bike doesn't like at all!

The hash point was down a long gravel driveway serving several houses. After the first house, there was an open gate with posted signage. 71 meters to go :-( I decided to take a "did not reach", and gingerly motored back to paved roads. I waited for NWoodruff for a few minutes, but had to leave for another engagement.

I made the trip and ended up there at about 6:15 pm. I saw the no trespassing signs and parked my truck by the fence. I notice a man mowing the lawn about 200 yards from the fence and walked over to talk to him.

I explained Geohashing and asked permission to walk over and take pictures of the eTrex. He said that was fine. PERMISSION Granted!!!

I took a few pictures and made an XKCD out of sticks for LuxMundi to find.

I then drove home to Norcross.
