[edit] Plans

Since this was the first geohash in what seemed like a while to be inside town, I thought it necessary to visit the place after work. Given that I could thoroughly explore the site beforehand with Google Street View and Bing Bird's Eye, I figured this one to be merely a drive-thru.

[edit] Expedition

I kind of feel now this expedition wasn't worth the time, since it ended up being more of a chore than anything else. As I indicated, this trip ended up being only a drive-thru of the spot. I was at work later than I expected to be, and because of the stupid earth's tilted axis, it is quite early when it gets dark for the evening this time of the year. So the trip ended up being rushed and without much reward.

[edit] Achievements

Dvdllr earned the Land geohash achievement
by reaching the (40, -89) geohash on 2010-11-15.
Is it true that Dvdllr earned the Speed Racer Achievement?
In principle, yes.
But he failed to get any pictures of the GPS when it was both on the hashpoint and at the appropriate speed (2010-11-15 40 -89).
