[edit] Plans

I was going to be getting done with work and on the road home early, so I might be able to stop by this one geohash on the way.

[edit] Expedition

Google Maps had a route for me that would have me off 94 until after the hashpoint, so I'd get to see some new roadway. When I left town, it was close to rush hour and I needed my turn-by-turn GPS app to get me out of the Twin Cities, and it wanted to use 94. I wasn't in a fighting mood, so I took it.

It was just before sunset when I pulled off the freeway. ...Sadly it was still a heck of a drive to the hashpoint from there and getting dark.

By the time I reached the house it was dark. There were no signs of life inside and no lights, so I decided to take a chance and pull into the drive and up to the hashpoint. I get the feeling it's been a little while since someone had been here because the driveway was rough and muddy, but luckily still frozen. There was a point it got slick and I wasn't sure I wasn't going to get stuck. I dropped the car into second gear and drove slowly out.

There was another long drive back to he freeway and then I was heading on home.

I stopped for pizza and half a beer at Moosejaw Pizza and Brewhaus in the Wisconsin Dells. After that stop, it was a straight drive home.

Another new graticule!
