The hash was located on the front doorstep of No. 13 Longland in Salisbury.




Before leaving for school I checked my usual compliment of websites, including the coordinate calculator for today's geohash. After weeks of waiting I was happy to find that the hash was within walking distance of both my school and my house. Naturally, our chemistry lesson was less than exhilharating, so the conversation between Mad dog and I went pretty much like this:

Jand: 'Hey dude... dude!...' Mad dog: 'What?' Jand: 'There's a geohash in Salisbury today, you up for it?' Teacher gives us evils. Mad dog gives thumbs up.

At 12:50 we met at school and headed to my house to print off a map and to charge my phone so we could use the GPS. However, it turned out this wasn't needed, as Google Maps told us that the hash was located on the pavement of the road we were headed for. As time was getting on at this point, we got my Dad to drive us halfway, and we walked the rest of the way, arriving at the hash at 1:41pm.
