Jordan and Bo got the Speed Racer Achievement!
The coordinates for this day were on Eagle Glen Drive
Distance Traveled: 17.7 mi
This was a spontaneous hash of sorts. After waking up at 4 PM on a Friday, I realized I forgot to do something. No, it wasn't school (I completed a 3rd of that); it was checking where the hashes were for Friday, Saturday and Sunday! While looking, I couldn't help but realize how close Friday's was (I recognized the neighborhood's name -- that surely must be close). Not only was it close, it was on the road! Speed Racer Achievement here I come!
And for your pleasure, l'expedició:
I drove over to Jordan's house to pick him up. He was going to be my rally car passenger driver -- the one that does all of the work. I entrusted him with my camera to take pictures of the speedometer as I drove. He succeeded; we succeeded. It was almost too easy of a hash. But, like usual, we did some adventuring of our own after the hash (this is what I love about geohashing -- it isn't necessarily the hashing that is fun; it is the random journeys it invokes). Earlier in the week, Jordan obtained Pokémon: LeafGreen for $10 at Gamestop. Now since I have lost all of my Pokémon games, that piece of news had something sweet to its flavor. We went to three, yes, three Gamestops and not one had a discount game. ARGH!
Anywho, we did accomplish something. I have had a garbage bag in Snowball for the past two hashes but hadn't really used it because I'm not too fond of picking up trash off of the side of the road with my bare hands. Conveniently, there was a Robot Claw at a store in the mall (the third Gamestop was here). CHECK. DONE. FINISHED. I've got my Robot Claw now, baby.
After all was said and done and Jordan had returned home, I decided to visit my dad. After some convincing words were exchanged, I head on back to the Apartments. Oh, but wait, there is more. I had a flat! Yay! So this hash's Stop of the Hash was at Weigel's. I had a very delicious Butterfingers.
