At that little park on the side of the Oak Street bridge, on the Vancouver side.

[edit] Plans

The geohash was so gloriously simple, in a real public park on a sunny day that the only plan posted was ...

Go there.

[edit] Expedition

[edit] Wade & Dagny

Wade programmed the coordinates into GPS, put himself and the GPS in the car. Dagney put herself and T-Rex in the car. We drove for about 15 minutes, following simple major streets for most of the way, and a few small streets for the final few hundred meters.

At the hashpoint, there was an unexpected difficulty. A car seemed to be parked exactly where we wanted to be. Wade parallel parked in front of the offending car, and was pleased to see the GPS read "0 m to destination".

After a couple of photos, we started the car back up and drove home.

[edit] Difficulty

The geohash did not require complex navigation or even getting out of the car, but it did require parallel parking. I give it a 2.5 out of 10 on the difficulty scale.
