[edit] Expeditions

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 ...

[edit] The Deflowering of the Bullhead City Graticule

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.

[edit] 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."
