[edit] Location

Like satellite imagery predicted, the point was in a rather nice park in Rickhond Hill.

[edit] Plans

I have a work-out at the dojo first, but will set out to arrive about 8pm. Plenty of time before sunset.

[edit] Expedition

After my work-out, I threw my gym bag in the trunk then realized I forgot my GPS and camera. Luckily, that very afternoon I mentioned to my colleague at work that people use their phones now for all sorts of functions other then calling and number storage, and became resolute in proceeding to the geohash using just my phone. I downloaded an app (thank-you GPS Status and Toolbox) and headed out. It works just as good as my Garmin. I may end up using it more often.

The spot was beyond the 1st base foul line, but probably still 'in the ballpark.' I snapped some pictures and I went on my merry way.
