[edit] Location

What turned out to be farmland on private property

[edit] Participants

  • RocketMac
  • Jon - That's his geocaching handle, so I'm sure he'd use it here.

[edit] Plans

My web script sent me an email this morning letting me know that the hashpoint was two miles from work. Google Maps looked good, and I was itching for a Consecutive Geohash Achievement so I started formulating plans on how to ask for access to private property, when I could leave work, etc.

Around lunchtime Jon, a geocaching co-worker suggested a coffee run which would put us near the point. I mentioned it and he agreed!

[edit] Expedition

The drive to the spot was fine. We drove by a house Jon had seen for sale, but driving past it was clear it needed work. On to the hashpoint!

Google Maps had suggested that it was in the front yard of the house, so pulling up seeing cars in the driveway, I was considering knocking and asking for permission. When I punched it into my GPS app, it appeared in a large plot of land behind the house with no public access. Jon looked at the map and thought he found a walking approach though we would be trespassing which I wasn't keen on doing. It was also over a quarter mile away, and we should be getting back.

After a brief discussion, we agreed to abort and head back. *sigh*
