I plan to arrive at 4 with sidewalk chalk in hand. --Thomcat 10:13, 27 July 2012 (EDT)

[edit] Expedition

Didn't bring any sidewalk chalk. Before parking next to the spot, we actually went a little further up the road to snap a picture for the graticule page - Spokane from the bluff looks like the little town that it acts like, not the big city that it so wants to be. This was also a great spot to watch Independence Day fireworks, back when I was younger.

Back to the spot and park across the road. Aerial photo showed it to be on the verge of the road, but the geohash droid wanted to drag me up the bank and into the private property. I was having none of that, and even reset the GPS to see if I could get a better reading.

Going back and looking at the aerial photo and my photos, I trekked back and forth over the spot a few times. The rock marked below was just off the road, between the actual spot and where the droid GPS wanted me to go.

Absolutely nobody showed up, it was a hot day (but not my hottest geohash) and there were other tasks to accomplish. Considering that I am the first to edit the Spokane graticule page in roughly 3 years, I will confirm this graticule is IN-ACTIVE.

At least until my next trip through.
