[edit] Location

On Waugh St. between Clay and W. Gray Sts., west of downtown Houston. Arty / emerging area. Not sure what's on this block - can't wait to learn. Could be a boutique, ice-house, auto shop, or as is so likely in Houston, a nail salon.

  • speed racer drive through
  • then return to wander around and snap photos - if the neighborhood is not a dangerous hood.

[edit] Expedition

Successful!!

A quick jaunt from downtown Houston west to this haspoint. Even though I could find the intersection without a GPS, I wanted to catch the lat/long on the device. But, I fumble fingered one digit in the lat, and the GPS keep giving me bad directions - which I ignored until after I arrived.

Nice little neighborhood, beautiful sunny day. Reach the hash via a few roads I'd never been on - nice to see different surroundings in an area I thought I knew already.

GPS photo is from across the street from point, after Speed Racing through.

All the elements of a pleasant, quick urban Geohash.
