Inside a womans house in Dunwoody Georgia.




I walked up to the front door and knocked. I was met by a big dog that was at least 3 feet tall. He came to the window by the door and stuck his nose to the window. After about a second or so, he barked once. Just once and then sat there. I put my hand to the window and the dog leaned forward as to sniff my hand through the window. Out through the garage came a woman. I introduced myself and asked her, her name. She said that it was "Jill" if I remember correctly.

I explained some about Geohashing and how fun it is to go to various places on a moments notice. I then said that the Dow Jones had blessed her house by picking a coordinate that was at the back of her house. I then showed her the map and asked if I could have access to the back yard to take a picture of my eTrex. Just as I said that her cordless phone, not cell phone rang that was in her hand. She answered the phone and then said to me "Okay". Permission Granted!

I walked around to the back of the house and then to the side wall of the house only to figure that Google Maps is off this time by about 10 feet or more. Oh well. I got to 14.5 feet and decided that was as close as I could get. I took a few pictures then walked back around to the front of the house.

Jill was still standing there talking on the phone. I raised my hand in the air and said "Thanks!" some what loud. She stopped talking for a second to say "Your welcome."

I then got in my truck and drove home to Norcross.
