[edit] Expedition

I was heading out the door at work when I went to check something on the Internet. No response. Poking revealed that something was very wrong. Several hours later, the ISP has managed to fix a piece of Fibre cable that either a creature bumped or chewed through.

However, being a persistent, err, foolish, geohasher, I figured I'd still make an attempt for the hashpoint. I started out, and on the way puzzled how to make our Internet connection more robust.

Then I looked at the clock and realized something that I'd never encountered before, really. Hashpoints expire. At midnight. The hashpoint wasn't even going to be close to valid by the time I got there.

So, I gave up. Dinner seemed like a good option. The hashpoint looked interesting. Maybe I'll try for it as a Retro next time I'm that area. It's now programmed into the GPS.
