[edit] Plans

Jevanyn: I'm going to be in Woodbridge tonight, I might be able to drive by. It'll be easier to find with my new GPS :-).

[edit] Expedition

With the geohash so close to Kean University, I did not look up directions beforehand. I had the day off from work, so I spent it where I would like to spend EVERY day, at a bookstore. :-) We left from there and headed east on US-22, intending to follow signs for Kean. Of which there were exactly one, BTW, onto NJ-82. This lead across the eastern side of the campus, unclosed in a black iron fence that could stop a marauding barbarian or two. I took the first right past the end of the campus, looking for Morris Road.

The GPS told me I was within a half mile, but lacked local street maps, so I zig-zagged through the local streets, turning ever closer in the direction indicated. Finally, I found myself on a parallel street one block over from Summit, and referred back to the anthill.de map to see how close I was.

Unfortunately, the geohash turned out to be well back of the road, and our closest approach was about 75 ft.
