South of the Tri Cities on the Washington side of the river. Could be farmland?




I thought I would fuel the expedition with a stop at Spudnut... but they are closed on Sunday. What's the point of that?

Went south on 395 to the pull off and then followed (yet more) dirt roads to a sign labeled "No Trespassing No Hunting" - does hunting for Geohash points count? If I only pursue one of the activities does the sign apply to me? Will logic save me?

While I pondered my fate, a truck drove by and so I followed him to the Benton Ranch office. Making a quick inquiry, he said "Sure you can drive around, just don't go into the corn." Score!

The Geohash point was indeed located in a patch of growing corn, which I respectfully failed to trample. I circled the spot, the closest I could come was 0.797 km North of the spot, and then 0.748 km east of the spot. Had this not been growing season, I could have easily reached the exact spot.

Besides all that, the expedition showed me a beautiful vista of the Columbia River, and was the first (and only?) Geohash on the Washington side of this split graticule.

Time to drive west and visit Another Geohash!
