The parking lot of a Piggly Wiggly store.
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 second of five. Following my digital fate, I found myself at a Piggly Wiggly. Across the street was an old-style highway motel. I had been on the phone with my wife earlier and she had said the highway I was on was the primary route before the freeway system. It explained a lot about the sights.
The hashpoint itself was not interesting. I just stood at the point and took a picture of myself. I checked for a nearby geocache and GCXYF2 - CFD was just down the street. It was a large PVC pipe hidden in the sign of the local Fire/EMT house. The natives watched me but were not terribly surprised.
