Sasha and I discovered the location for this geohash the day before, and since we were already planning to do a bike ride around that area, it was a no-brainer that we go for it. Riding from Sasha's place in Blackburn, we battled sporadic rain and yet more poor direction-finding from Sasha to at last arrive at the hash point, which was conveniently located right on the property boundary, under a wattle tree, at the end of a cute cul-de-sac a-la Neighbours.

Having forgotten my GPS we had to rely on the precision of a print-out of the area from Google Maps, but since we could resolve the very bush through which the hash passed, we reckon this ended up being more accurate than if we had used the GPS and therefore feel no compunction to not include it as a fail.

Donning our bikes and doffing our wet-weather gear we were off to the city along the Eastern Freeway bike path, interrupting our sojourn only to indulge in garish iced chocolate and cheap port at the Fairfield Boathouse. Not a bad afternoon's work.

Here is the CloudMade maps route we took.
