[edit] Plans

I have spent this week working Chicago: leaving the house at 5:30am, getting on a train, spending a full day in the loop, and getting home after 7pm. Two of those days had reachable hashpoints, but required a little driving. When I saw that today's was not far from my house, I had to go.

[edit] Expedition

Today was exam day, so training was short. I had selected the early session which let me out a little after noon. That was perfect to be able to attend a geocaching event and then find a couple other caches before catching an early train.

Once I was back in town and in my car, I made off to the hashpoint and took GPS captures and a couple of photos. Still hoping to make a Pub Geohash some day, not only was there not a pub in sight, but Yelp! couldn't even find one within a mile. I checked for hash collisions as well and once again it was not to be.
