A cul-de-sac in Franklin, WI
When I checked coordinates on Friday, I saw that both Friday and Sunday were unlikely to happen. The Saturday coordinates are easy to reach, but my wife and I are quadruple booked as it is, so I didn't know if I could make it.
Then I remembered the Midnight Geohash award, and thought, "Hey! I could do that!"
We'll see if I make it.

During dinner, we discussed plans for Saturday and everything we had to do. My wife asked if there was anything I wanted to do, so I mentioned the hashpoint. As the time I needed to leave to make it by midnight approached, I asked if we wanted to come along. I assumed she wouldn't, but she said, "Sure. Why not?"
I started the track recorder on my GPS and put it away. I had already worked out the route, so off we went.
We made it to the spot with less than ten minutes to wait. The spot was easy to identify thanks to earlier satellite and street view scouting. There was an odd neighbor wandering around opening and closing his garage door and I started to wonder if I was going to earn a Police Geohash as well. Wasn't sure if I really wanted it or not, but we didn't have to find out.
Once midnight hit, I snapped a picture of the clock in the car and turned on the dome lights for a group photo and off we went.
