In the trees behind some houses in West Springfield, Massachusetts.


Sara and her children


We drove over there, and discovered a lemonade stand - the archetype of discovering something fun and unexpected only because one went geohashing.

Sipping our lemondade, we took a slightly longer route to the hashpoint than was strictly necessary, because the direct route would have required cutting through someone's yard, and anyway we enjoy tromping through the woods. The hashpoint was very close to the highway, but you can't really see the highway from there and you can hardly hear it.

After we found the hashpoint, my daughter decided we should walk down to a nearby brook. I really enjoyed seeing my children get interested in throwing rocks into the brook, because we end up spending so much time inside.
