[edit] Location

In front of a house in Sellwood/East Moreland. Looks like it is right near the sidewalk in a driveway.

But then it appeared to drift into the street...

[edit] Plans

Jim has something in Portland in the evening, so heading towards the East side beforehand makes a lot of sense.

[edit] Expedition

So, I started out by heading west, to Tillamook, in search of the first of two hashpoints. However, that expedition was thwarted, and I continued on to the Sellwood neighborhood, in search of the second one.

The route was pretty easy, though the traffic got slow at times. I remembered enough of the Google maps so I didn't freak out when the point's neighborhood appeared to pass me by with no access.

I found the correct street and slowly drove down it, glancing at the GPS from time to time. Eventually, the distance dropped to 19 feet, which struck me as odd, since it should have been on the sidewalk. But it had drifted, and was now in the street.

I took a few pictures and headed off to do some work. No other geohashers (or anyone else) were visible, nor appeared to have been around.
