[edit] Location

The side of the road in Franklin, WI just down the street from a small cemetery with a geocache.

  • RocketMac - Spent the day (2011-10-20) on-site with a client and decided to pop by

[edit] Plans

The best laid plans...

[edit] Actual Date

In the morning, I had looked up the coordinates and saw that it was only a few miles from home...

I spent Wednesday and Thursday on site with a client less than a mile from the spot. On Wednesday I looked up nearby geocaches and thought the area looked familiar. Oh wait! This the same place as Monday's hashpoint!

It was raining on Wednesday, but it was already going to be a retro visit so I could wait to see if the weather picked up. It was only drizzling on Thursday and we got done early, so off I went...

[edit] Expedition

[edit] Actual Date

...dinner with the in-laws ran late and I was too tired to stop by.

[edit] 2011-10-20

After my client visit, I pulled up to the hashpoint and during a break in the rain and traffic, I took a screen grab of my GPS and a few pictures.

Since there was a geocache ~700 feet away, I walked over and made the find.

The whole thing wasn't terribly exciting or worthy of the word "adventure", but there it is.

RocketMac earned the It's a kitty consolation prize
by being so distracted by dinner with the in-laws as to forget to go to the (42, -88) geohash on 2011-10-17.
