In an abandoned subdivision in Dallas Georgia.



Right at 9:30am I always start checking the peeron map to see where I am going today. I clicked several times waiting for the coord's to pop up. I waited and waited... Nothing.

10:30 am rolled around.... Still not working.

12:00pm came and went. No point on the map yet.

2pm... still no point on the map.

The same with 3pm and 4pm. I clicked the link to the main page to see if someone had left a note as to why the peeron map was not producing coordinates. I saw the link for "Today's Coordinates" on the page and clicked the link.

There they were. I did a screen shot and printed it out. I then went to google and printed a map. I entered the coord's into my eTrex and the has spot was 10 miles away. I am familiar with the area so I headed out with only the google map for directions.

I drove around the area till I came up on the closest point to a road. It was well into the woods of someones house. I knocked on the door and introduced myself as someone looking to reach a point. A scavenger hunt but with only GPS points. I showed them the print out, the google map, and pointed to my eTrex. That was good enough for them and they said okay.

I found the hash point, coordinates reached.

Kozz has informed me that the coordinates are off. I hadn't noticed until he has said something. I have attached the picture of the screen shot that I printed out with the coordinates that I used. Which is correct?
