McSushi - Heading home from work on the bus.

[edit] Plans

I checked today's coordinates and was thrilled to discover it was mere blocks from a convenient bus stop. (Is there a public transportation achievement?).

While on the bus, I called a Local Guide (with a Mustang; going home was slightly faster than the bus) who arrived and took pictures. (I am assured the pix are in the mail). Local Guide (who I will sometimes refer to as code name Sleeping Dragon) suggested Gas Station Gyros afterward, which is not pie but is pretty good anyway. I wrote a Lyrical Summary while the bus achieved Far Eastern Madison:

A Beautiful Day on the Ides of May for the Initial Sleeping Dragon Geo-Foray.
From Coach House and Sudbury, to Gas Station Gyro-ry, the Bustang did gymbol and play

[edit] Expedition

I had failed to note exactly which Bus stop I was supposed to de-bus at, but I got within a few blocks by guess-work. Nice neighborhood, a park nearby to grab twigs and form the obligatory XKCD sign on the ground. I wrote the Lyrical Summary on a 4x6 card and placed it on the (apparent, to my reading of google maps anyway) exact spot. Several cars ran over it while I waited.

Local Guide got a little lost (wrong side of Milwaukee Street) but eventually arrived and took photographic evidence.
