[edit] Plans

When I woke up this morning and looked up the day's coordinates, I was happy to see that the spot was not only close to home, but there was a geocache less than 150 feet away!

[edit] Expedition

As soon as work wrapped up for the day, I headed out.

When I arrived at the spot, I parked right next to the nearby cache and wandered over to the hashpoint. The owners of the house were outside during yardwork, so I told them about geohashing and while they thought it was odd, it sounded kind of fun. I asked permission to come onto their lawn so I would be right on the spot and they approved. I snapped a couple of quick pictures and made a screen capture of my GPS for posterity.

The cache was a magnet on the back of the "end of road" sign right next to where I had parked. Nice and easy.

Not a bad excursion! I found a geohash and a geocache in the same spot and didn't have to get dirty at all.
