The parking lot of the Milwaukee County Labor Council. In fact, right up against the North wall.

RocketMac - Taking a detour out of my way home from work

[edit] Plans

This is the second hashpoint for this graticule in a week that could be reached by pulling into a parking spot. Just like the last one, this was a bit out of my way, but it was too good to pass up.

[edit] Expedition

It was raining when I left the house today and throughout the work day it went from drizzle to pouring and back again. While the point is right up against the wall, I was pretty sure I could just pull into a parking spot and call it "close enough" if the rain was too heavy at that moment.

I left work just ten minutes earlier than usual to give myself some extra time for my six mile detour. The traffic was bad with the rain which slowed me down. Also, the road I needed was closed forcing me to find a detour.

The detour proved to be a good thing. I drove past an Irish pub called The Bitter End which looks intriguing and yet I probably never would have found it without geohashing.

A little while l pulled into the lot. There were no other cars in the lot (a good sign) and the rain was light. My GPS was bouncing a bit but I pulled into the handicapped spot putting me less than four feet from the spot without getting out of my car.

I popped out to take a few pictures of the building including one of myself below the lit sign of the street number.

After that, I was on my way home.
