[edit] Plans

Plans? Who makes plans? I downloaded the Geohash Droid application yesterday, checked out the closest point today and went. The only plan I made was not to stop at the 7 Eleven a few hundred meters south to earn the Geosquishy achievement.

[edit] Expedition

I got in the van, started up Waze and searched for a road near the point. I made the mistake of turning on Calle Fortunada (how unfortunate) and then having to go back out on Ruffin. The point was just off the driveway up the the YMCA. There is a sign out on Ruffin. I stopped in the van initially but then decided to drive up into the parking lot and walk back down to try to get as exact as possible.

While I am walking down the hill my boss calls and asks me how to set up corporate email on his MacBook. Once that was resolved I was able to narrow down the location.

I don't know if the photo is exact, the Droid's GPS was drifting a little and I couldn't get the latitude to go lower even when I hung it out over the edge of the ravine. This would have been a great geosquishy site, but I will save that for another expedition.
