Kozz will attempt a Walk Geohash from his house, which is 1.22km away.

[edit] Expedition

After scoping the spot on Google Maps, I headed out from home with Kozz's dog. We had to detour north briefly to get onto a nearby path then from there it was plain sailing.

We found the hashpoint without any difficulties, and Monday's straightforward Ambassador I felt bold enough to walk up the driveway of the property in question and knock on the door to ask permission to take a photo on the hashpoint. It didn't work out as planned. A suspicious-looking woman answered the door, looked at the dog with some concern, then flatly refused to allow me to walk to the hashpoint - all of 5 metres away albeit around the side of the house - and take photos.

So, bummer. Not sure what the homeowner's problem was, probably with weird guys turning up on their doorstep asking to stand next to the house and take photos. Fair play. According to the Garmin I was about 5 metres away from the hashpoint. Within the circle of probability, I guess, and technically there, but irritating nonetheless.

I tried to snap a photo of the GPS as I left but the photo is blurry as all heck. Curse you, poor focal length of phone camera!

So we walked back home. Yay.
