Near Birch Bay in an overgrown field.
- Wenslayer: Since it was my birthday, and essentially a stone's throw away from the freeway upon which I would be driving, I figured I ought to at least try, despite the satellite maps showing it in the middle of undeveloped property.
We spent the weekend down in Seattle with friends, doing a little training for our upcoming Whistler Gran Fondo. As Monday was a holiday in BC (as well as my birthday, albeit a coincidence), we figured we'd drive back home this day, and take a small detour to attempt the Geohash.
I memorized the easy directions from the freeway, and made our way to a spot on the road closest to the Geohash. All along that road, the undeveloped property was a mess of overgrown brush, with blackberry bushes comprising the bulk of vegetation near the road. Not seeing any easy break in the vegetation to get close to the point, I found a small driveway that took me the closest way there, but in the end, I was stymied by Mother Nature.
Took a couple pics, jumped back in the car and continued on home.
Wenslayer is sad when he can't reach the Geohash coordinates.
So close to a Birthday Geohash; 316m close to be exact.
