A pleasant ride, followed by a short walk using a crappy smartphone GPS. The part worth to mention about this Geo Hash was that we (Jucks & Cem) drove from Pennsylvania to Montreal to visit a friend a day before on Friday.

[edit] Location

Today's location was a 45min ride from where we started. It was pretty much in the middle of a farm, a couple hundred meters off a country road.

[edit] Participants

  • Jucks - Who finally got to his first GeoHash after wanting to do it for so long.
  • Ipek - A fellow xkcd reader and a hashing enthusiast. Her first hash also.
  • Cem - A friend of Jucks who was curious about Geo Hashing. His first hash.

[edit] Expedition

We planned on being there at 4pm, but ended up leaving home at that time. We bought beer and a frisbee for when we got there. The hash point was near a road, so we just drove there. The car GPS took us really close to our target point. After we found a place to leave the car, we continued on foot to the location, which was in the middle of a farm field. We threw a frisbee around a couple times and each drank our victory beers at the hash point.
