[edit] Location

Urban area in Cosquín city, a very popular and touristic spot.

[edit] Participants

Onicofago and Significant Other.

[edit] Plans

The idea was to have a relaxed trip by car, enjoying some beautiful views, and then reach the geohash by foot before it was too dark. A very light bit of research in Google Maps was previously made.

[edit] Expedition

After being bored and watching TV in the afternoon, me and SO decided to go and try this geohashing thing for the first time. After a 45 minutes trip by car, and having my reliable and all worn-out and outdoorsy GPS loaded with the hash coordinates I was confident my first adventure would be successful.

We drank mate all the way, enjoying a very beautiful sunset in the Sierras of our Córdoba province.

Thing is, we faced a Non Trespassing Sign in an urban area in Cosquín city... only 30 meters away from the geohash. So, better luck next time. Met three little kids playing with a dog, took a picture of the happy group. Dog's name was "Arturrro" according to one of the kids, which translates as "Arthurrrr".
