Out near Kaiapoi, really near the coast but not in the water.
Mikethegirl and one other
Didn't get out of town until after 9pm, was get fairly dark by the time we got to the end of the road near the hashpoint.
Turns out it was in the middle of a reserve/estuary/place with really long, tough grass (waist height) and very wet underfoot. I'm pretty sure we would have needed a hefty pair of gumboots had the tide been in.
Pulled out the trusty torch to help us find a way around the many creek-like patches of water, and eventually found the hashpoint.
Turns out there was a stick already there, so no need to mark the spot. Having looked at the other reported hashes for this graticule, I'm very confused as to why a stake had been placed at the exact spot, but I'll leave it to serendipity and think no more on it.
A successful first geohash!
