Right at the end of a cul-de-sac in amongst new homes in Sherwood Park.
Finally, I'll be able to have a successful expedition in my home graticule, on an XKCD meetup day to boot.
These coordinates were on the opposite side of Edmonton from where I live, yet I often travel to the suburb of Sherwood Park to visit family so I know the area well. I had thought of trying a speed racer achievement, but turning around the end of the cul-de-sac at 50km/h seemed foolish even for me. It was already 5:30 by the time I got there and nobody was at the XKCD meetup (not much of a surprise in this graticule). Since I was already there I called my sister who lives in Sherwood Park, and she was just getting ready to go golfing with her husband. So after a quick stop at the Costco Liquor store for on course refreshments, I had a fun round of golf.
