On the edge of a Costco parking lot, near Downsview Airport, in Toronto.



As per usual, I checked the coordinates in the morning, and noted that they were very easily reachable. Then, I promptly ignored them for the rest of the day, as no planning was necessary if I decided to go.

That evening, I figured I might as well head out, as it's been a while since I've went on an expedition. I would personally like a more scenic or interesting location, but I wasn't going to ignore such a simple trip.

I walked to the nearest subway station, and took it to Wilson Station, before disembarking and walking the short distance to the parking lot. I was a bit worried that the hashpoint was going to fall on the other side of the fence around the parking lot, but even if it had, it would have just been around five minutes more of walking.

On the way back, I stopped and took some pictures of Bombardier's Downsview Airport. There were no planes landing or taking off, but there was one that flew overhead as I was leaving. From there, I walked back to the subway station, and soon enough I was back at my room.

All told, the trip took 1 hour, 23 minutes, and 19 seconds. This was definitely one of the easiest geohashes I have ever attempted.
