Side of a road in rural Illinois on my way home from St. Louis.

Plans[edit]

When the class I was teaching this week started winding own, I checked for any reachable hashpoints on my drive from St. Louis to Milwaukee and found that the 41,-88 graticule would only add less than an hour to my drive and mark off another notch on my Minesweeper badge.

Expedition[edit]

Originally I had anticipated being done with class and on the road by 2pm, but due to some technical difficulties and some good solid questions from one of the students, I didn't hit the road until almost 4pm. So by the time I made the hashpoint, it was after 9pm and dark.

From the moment I left 55, I was subjected to a lot of 30-45mph zones and a lot of red light clusters I hit wrong every time. Normally with geohashing, I find these "scenic" detours to be the main point. But after dark, it's just slow going.
