At the side of a road in East Longmeadow, Massachusetts.




I was supposed to be working today, but this was the perfect distance for a walk, so I took advantage of it.

I didn't bring the GPS receiver because this point was so easy to locate from Google maps and I didn't want to carry any extra weight. It was clearly directly across the street from the driveway of the brown house, which was the second house past the elementary school.

The weather wasn't too hot and the walk was pleasant, but there was nothing interesting to photograph. I don't know whether the lack of anything interesting along the route is due to my having made about 850 round trips* along most of the route to the hashpoint driving my children to and from school or whether Longmeadow and the adjacent part of East Longmeadow are simply boring.

I walked to the hashpoint, marked the point, and walked home. The entire round trip involved 15.8 km of walking and took a little over three hours.

* (That's not an English-to-metric conversion error. 850 round trips == 1700 one-way trips along that route over the five years my children have been in school. To get to my children's school, we drive almost to the hashpoint, but we make a turn just before the hashpoint and continue North for a few more miles.)


I apologize for taking pictures with a cell phone.
