[edit] Expedition

This time I decided to go geohashing with another friend, Isaac. We left Jefferson City west on 50 with him driving and me giving directions. We lost our way several times due to street names being different from those on Google Maps, but eventually we found our way down several gravel roads to the property near the hash. Fortunately, the nearby house was abandoned and the field showed no signs of development; combined with the absence of any "No Trespassing" signs, we took this as permission to explore.

We had to pass under a pair of barbed wire fences and through a significant amount of waist-high weeds, but eventually we reached the location as nearly as we could determine, given that I still have not come into possession of a GPS. We snapped a few pictures of ourselves and some nearby landmarks for proof, then returned home, stopping only to get drinks at a country market at which we spotted a man in a Slipknot shirt and black cargo pants looking very out of place (unfortunately, no pictures of that).
