In the back lot of a business in Duluth Georgia.


I really need to invest in a flash light if I am going to Geohash now after dark. I pulled into the parking lot and drove my truck so it pointed at the back of the building and put the high beams of the headlights on.

It was still a 300 feet walk to where the spot was and from 300 feet a way, my head lights on the truck were not doing all that much good. There is a patch of grass that extends about 50 feet from the building but geohash spot was probably more like 80 feet from the building. That meant a 30 foot walk into the trees. I couldn't see a thing as I was walking into the tall grass and trees. For some reason the mostly full moon was not up at this time providing light.

I inched my way into the tree line and kept an eye on my eTrex. After running face first into several small pine trees slightly taller than me, I found the hash spot with 1.25 feet to go. I took a few pictures and noticed how the flash of the camera lite the area up. I tried to take several pictures using the flash but almost none of them turned out.

I carefully stepped my way back out of the tree line to the mowed grass path behind the building. I then made my way back to my truck and drove home to Norcross.

15 in a row. Here's hoping that I make it to at least 18.
