RocketMac - On my way from Milwaukee to Minneapolis for work

[edit] Plans

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.


[edit] Expedition

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!
