From Geo Hashing
On 46th Street in Vancouver.
- Kydlt: On the way if I go that way.
- Michael5000: It was a very accessible hashpoint, but didn't look especially interesting. So, I thought maybe a running expedition would be in order. Then, it occurred to me that my running buddy Molly lived along the way. She bought in, and it became a drag-along. She was very sporting when I admitted that it was a geohashing expedition.
- Kydlt: I drove by on my way to my children's house. There were some neighbors across Grant St watching me, we smiled and waved at one another, but I didn't have the time to stop and explain what geohashing is all about. I seem to be out of chalk so I made a sign on some 2" AL tape and stuck it on the road. Perhaps the neighbors cleaned up after me.
- Michael5000: We parked not far off the freeway exit by Hazel Dell. Rather than march right up to the hashpoint, we snuck up on it from behind, by running down the Burnt Bridge trail and coming back around on pleasant evening suburban streets. We probably crossed the hashpoint at ~ 8:15 p.m., and commemorated the moment with a little geohash dance. We didn't see any marker, however.
Returned to the truck and the State of Oregon without further incident. 4.25 miles for the run.
