South of Chloride, Az



RoadRunner and I were on our way back to Tucson from a weekend canoeing trip down the Colorado River when we stopped at a roadside store for some yummy jerky (flavored dried meat) when we decided to check local geohash points. A quick U-turn had us heading back toward Chloride to find something Google labeled a road. We only had to get out and open two farm gates (with "please close gate" signs) along this "road". Eventually drove to within a hundred meters of the spot and a simple walk and GPS shuffle was all it took. Found a quicker way out through Chloride (new iPhone is really cool) and were back on the highway heading for home.

And since there's no other posting for this graticule, I guess this is ...

The Deflowering of the Bullhead City Graticule[edit]

Wyle & RoadRunner earned the Virgin Graticule Achievement
by being the first to reach any hashpoint in the (35, -114) graticule, here, on 2011-04-03.

which, by the way, is our 4th and possibly 5th (Nogales is still undecided) virgin graticule. Bring it on, XKCD.

PS. And HUGE kudos to RoadRunner, who's foresight was ... "I know we don't need the GPS for the river, but bring it anyway."[edit]
