In Smithville, about three miles south of Bloomington, a few feet off Fairfax Rd.


Erik showed up late in the evening (around 10:30pm).


Erik announced his intention to hash to the local geocaching groups ([Geocachers] and the IU [Club]). He got a response from a fellow geocacher who was planning on biking right by the spot on his way to Lake Monroe. They weren't able to meet up, but Erik has been assured that the hash was reached that afternoon at 4ish. Hopefully he'll stop by to log his visit.



I started pretty late, but I figured it would be an easy grab. I drove just past the hash, parked in a convenience store, and walked a few hundred feet back to the spot. It was late, but there were several porch parties going on in the neighborhood, so I didn't look that bizarre. I didn't even have to get off the shoulder to get to the coordinates. My real camera's batteries were dead, so I was stuck with my crappy phone camera. Sadly, none of my efforts to get myself photographed (eerily lit by a flashlight, of course) panned out, but at least I got a readable picture of the GPSr display for proof.



Erik earned the Land geohash achievement
by reaching the (39, -86) geohash on 2010-06-28.
