By Google maps it appears to be at the base of a street light in a median strip out in Albany.
Basically we decided to run to the hash point via one route; stop and take photos; and then walk up to a bus depot; catch a ride back on a different route; and finally run the remainder from where the bus dropped us off to our home.
Krintar:Everyone I talked to about having a geohashing adventure seemed lazy and uninterested, so I was on the brink of deciding to just leave my first hash for some other day... then I noticed the location. 'Munroe Lane?' I thought to myself, 'I could do my first hash in Munroe Lane? Awesome.' So I decided to go ahead anyway.
I'll be there around 4pm; hope to see someone else.
JimmyNZ,Greenslime:So after carefully planning our route over a cup of coffee, it was still early and with yesterday being Xmas we were both a little too full of food. After packing supplies, including a couple of Greenslimes' homemade fruit mince pies (yum!!) we took off on our little jog. It kinda sucks that we get out of our house and we're facing a steep hill for the next few kilometers. What a rude wake up.
A little time passes, along with 10.17 km (or 6.3 miles for you imperial folk) and we reach the hashpoint. We catch our breaths, sit down for a little hash pie, snap some photos, pick up some trash (It was an AC/DC cd: who throws that stuff out - black ice is a classic!!) for a further geotrash award then amble up to the bus stop.
After only a 4 minute wait for a bus (believe me in New Zealand that's what we call amazing) we jump on, pay a small fortune and sit back in air conditioned comfort for a little siesta.
Once we're ejected it's only a short 3.3 km run (~2 miles folks) until we reach home.
Job done, and a successful Tron Achievement.
Krintar: Managed to snag a lift out there; parked on Davies Dr. and walked down to the hash point. Not terribly complicated for a first time out, though in retrospect I wish I had thought to set myself up for a few achievements.
I did manage to convince one of my friends to come out and meet me there, at least. We agreed that it was convenient to have a lamppost marking the hash point. Snapped a few pictures, hey presto, time to go home.
