Up a driveway in North Seattle, near Greenlake.




It's the average cloudy day in Seattle, and the geohash is close by. Time for another bicycle geohash.

No problems finding the house, but a car in the driveway. Okay, park the bike and take a few snaps. Then the owner was spotted puttering around. I gave a rough explanation of geohashing and showed him the map with coordinates at the end of his driveway. Could I come up to his garage door and snap a few more pictures? Assent followed a slightly quizzical look and he went on about his puttering - success!

I left the paper with him, in case he wanted to look it up on the computer. My next spot was Spud fish and chips for a Single with Extra and a Chocolate Shake.

On the ride home, it of course started to rain. Nothing to qualify for Drowned Rat of course. I snapped a few more photos and packed it in - time to scour the job sites again.


Thomcat earned the Bicycle geohash achievement
