In the parking lot of the US Postal Service in Kennesaw Georgia.



This Geohash is too close for me not to make it. It is only 1.7 miles from my office. Yes, I know... I drove over and was directed to drive into the back parking lot. I parked 80 feet from the Geohash spot inside of the secured area. I walked up to the back of the building to the customer area. The person at the desk taking tickets ask for my delivery receipt. I did not have one but gave him the short version of Geohashing.

He told me that this was a Federal Government building, and he said that with Authority like I would be impressed or something. He asked me what I was taking a picture of and I said "Only my GPS device." He said "Okay, but pretend you are doing something with the landscaping. That is what I will tell my boss if she asks." I said "Okay" and walked over and looked at the bushes at the back fence first.

I then walked to the GPS spot with 2.42 feet to go. Close enough. I then walked back to my truck and then drove off to lunch.
