Located near Christchurch, New Zealand just south east of Rangiora and south west of Woodend, on the side of a small road that runs along a small unknown creek.
Stuart, John and Peter.
I had been watching for an accessible location in my graticule for a week or so. Location and available time worked in together today.
Having checked out the co-ordinates using the trusty geohash iPhone app, I sent out a call to other XKCD fans in my company [Tait Electronics] to see if anyone else would be keen to join me.
Peter and John stepped up.
We jumped into my car and headed off to the location. As using hand-held GPS units and phones in a car is now banned in New Zealand, John acted as the navigator as we set off towards Cox Road.
Cox road turned out to be a gravel road with a 'No Exit' sign. We followed it, and eventually reached out target co-ordinates.
The location was on a bank beside a small creek/river. We arrived at 12:48pm. It was quite, sunny grassy, and quite a pleasant change from the cubicle at work.
