[edit] About

The day's hash is just north of the Rochester Medical Center at Rochester Road and South Boulevard in Rochester Hills.

[edit] Planning

Ah, my kingdom for a reachable Sunday hash, I could have five straight! Planning on being there around 5pm with a drag-along if anybody else is interested in attending. There's a Starbucks in the shopping center south of South Blvd on the east side of the road, and a Big Boy just north of the hash point. --Bill^2 16:15, 12 February 2010 (UTC)


[edit] Expedition

Bill^2: Another easy reach! Last Friday, when the weekend's (plus Monday's) hash coordinates were available, I found it remarkable that three of the four locations were going to be easily reachable, and posted the link to the Anthill site to my Facebook profile. Shortly thereafter, a former college hall-mate of mine remarked that it was about 2 minutes drive from his house, which it also was of mine. Turns out we live about 2 miles from each other and had no idea. We resolved to meet at the hash location and then adjourn to a nearby Starbucks to catch up for a bit.

We arrived at the hash location, about 40 feet into a field off of the parking lot of the Rochester Medical Center at Rochester and South Boulevard. I tromped across the pile of snow to create a path for Keith, who was marginally less-appropriately dressed for Geohashing in a snowy field than I was, having just arrived from work. (His dress code is somewhat more stringent than my office's.) Unfortunately, we did not actually go across the street to procure a Squishy, but I took the picture just to show that we could have.
