[edit] Expedition

After visiting Newquay aquarium, my girlfriend and I set off to Perranporth, near South West of Newquay. I'll admit, we nearly chickened out due to the rain, but we pressed on and parked up in a car park just off the main road. I then walked up the road to get the hash but due to the weather, my GPS was throwing a hissy fit, claiming that wherever I walked in a 10m circle, I was always 4m from the hash. I waited for 15 minutes for it to readjust, getting wetter by the second, but nothing happened. Therefore, I just walked everywhere in the area and then called it done; it turns out the fire of enthusiasm is slightly dampened by 12 hours of Cornish rain. During this time, my girlfriend drove up the road to see what was happening, thereby going through the point and gaining her first legitimate geohash! Also, on driving off, I'm fairly sure we qualified for the Speed Racer achievement. My dampest geohash yet complete.
