A 1/4 mile walk into the woods in the dark of night while raining heavily east of Milton Georgia.


I have finally invested in a flashlight. This Geohash would have been impossible with out one. I drove into the park about 6pm. I found the closest place to the hash and parked my truck. It had been raining heavily all day long so I know that it was going to be tough to get to this hash in the dark.

There was more than 1000 feet into the woods to get to this hash. I almost decided to give up 100 feet or so into the woods. It was very difficult to see because the flashlight would only illuminate a small circle on the ground. I kept getting hit in the face by tree limbs and what ever else was there.

It took me almost 15 minutes to walk the 1000 feet or so. I persisted and found the hash point. I was fairly sure that nobody was within a 1/4 of a mile of me, not that I could see them even if they were 30 feet from me.

I contemplated a "Calendar Girl" photo. It was way too cold though. It would have also been difficult to do by myself as I don't have one of those cool things to attach to my camera that you can get it to hang off of a tree.

I attempted several pictures of the area with and with out the flashlight. With the flashlight the picture was just dark. With the flashlight and flash of the camera, it looked washed out. I settled on just the flash of the camera. Only one picture really came out to where you can see anything.

I made the more than 1000 feet walk back to my truck trying to follow the same path as per the eTrex.

I then made my way back to Norcross, Georgia.
