Neil was geohashing on the way to a wedding in Scotland. This was attempt four of five. A new graticule. Nice! And this completes a minesweeper. The hashpoint was on the M56 motorway to North Wales in south Runcorn. Neil failed to get the speed racer award because the hashpoint was very close to or on the left lane where the traffic was travelling well below the legal speed limit.

The GPS receiver distance dropped rapidly and then shot up again. It's illegal to stop on a motorway except in an emergency. I don't think geohashing counts so this was almost the shortest visit it's possible to make without taking to the air.
