[edit] Expedition

Liberian checked the location just before four in the afternoon and realized that it was easily reachable. He telephoned his mother and asked if she was interested in coming along; she was eager to. Liberian called Bos and invited him to come along--with about three minutes' notice. Bos dropped everything and got in his van.

Liberian changed the batteries in his camera and his GPS--they were both running out at the same time--and drove up to pick up his mother. The two of them drove down through Fort Walton Beach and up through Shalimar, reaching the meetup location at 4:45 in the afternoon. While he was waiting for his GPS unit to settle down after being at highway speeds, Liberian received a telephone call from a friend who had seen his car stopped by the side of the road. "Are you having some trouble? Do you need help"" Leo asked. "I'm geohashing," Liberian replied. "Want to join me?" Unfortunately Leo declined, preventing Liberian from receiving the Drag-Along Achievement. (If Liberian had had his wits about him, he would have zoomed past the point and received the Speed Racer Achievement as well. Alas for missed opportunities!) After taking the requisite photographs and drinking the requisite toast they went off to dinner. A good time was had by all.
