RocketMac - On my way from Milwaukee to Minneapolis for work
Normally when I drive for work, I plan out a few Geocaches along the way to break up the driving and snag a few finds. This time, I realized that I would be passing through multiple graticules and five of them had hashpoints I could reach with only a slight detour.
In the full spirit of adventure, I let The Algorithm be the wind in my sails and the GPS satellites my stars. I just let them guide me from one hashpoint to another taking routes I never would have tried before and seeing all new sights.
This was the first of five and it was less than two miles from my house. As if that wasn't easy enough, it was on the lawn of a senior living home. The Algorithm was throwing my softballs to get me warmed up.
Within minutes, I was parked and standing at the hashpoint. There were a couple of residents on a patio nearby, so I just took a picture of myself and moved on. I also grabbed a picture of the complex's sign.
On my way to the 2011-08-22_43_-89 point, I found a operational drive-in movie theater and stopped to take some pictures. I never would have found this if it weren't for Geohashing!
