In the back yard of a woman's house in Austell Georgia.




This was only slightly out of my way driving home when I drive the interstates home. Today since is is raining heavily I would usually take the back roads. But to day I went the back roads to Austell and then the interstates home.

I cruised up on the house and a woman was just leaving locking her front door. I hop out of my truck and explain geohashing in as few words as possible. She said that she didn't mind that she was leaving and wouldn't be back for several hours. She then said make it quick.

I ran behind the house jumped over a few downed trees and then did the GPS dance to find the Geohash spot. I settled on 3.24 feet to go.

I snapped a few pictures and then ran back to the front of the house. The woman asked me if I found what I was looking for and I said "Yes, Thank you very much!" She got in her car and I got in my truck and we drove off.

I didn't take me that much longer than if I would have driven the interstates the entire way home.
