Side of the road in Gabriella Court, suburbia, Ringwood.




Kozz has work out in the Eastern Suburbs in the afternoon so will try to swing by and grab some photos en route.



Bit of a disappointment! I had a couple of errands to run out in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne and decided to jump on this geohash as it was within easy striking distance. Was going to try a Tron but realised that I would have ended up crossing my path on the way back home. Just after I'd completed the final errand, my phone rung with a request to get back into the office ASAP and I only had a little bit of time to swing past the hashpoint.

In doing so, I actually passed the hashpoint from the 4th January but didn't get the camera out in time to grab a photo. Then, as I was about 500m away from the hashpoint, the batteries died on the GPS! I quickly switched round the batteries from the camera, and kept going, but when it got to the actual hash point the camera took just two photos of the working GPS - the first one out of focus, of course - and then shut down. The GPS continued to work, thankfully.

The hashpoint was on a little suburban dead-end road with a turning circle on one of the bends, with the actual point on someone's driveway at the edge of the turning circle. I got out of the car, walked to the hash point, stood there looking stupid for a couple of minutes - there was nowhere to leave a sign - then jumped back in the car and headed back to the office, only realising *after* I'd left the point that of course my phone has a camera on it!

So, sorry - just a photo of the GPS this time - but the -37,145 coordinates were successfully reached.
