[edit] Location

Parking lot at Walmart in Quesnel

[edit] Planning

I was up in Prince George BC visiting relatives and explaining about geohashing, when my brother in law looked it up on the internet. We laughed and noticed that there was an easy geohash point to reach on our way back home to Kamloops.

[edit] Expedition

While driving home my sister in law asked if we should stop at the geohash point and I figured sure why not. We arrived in Quesnel on a beautiful summer day and thought we remembered where Walmart was, but thought we would ask a couple of the locals where it was. They were very happy to help and we continued on our way. In the parking lot we parked the car very close to where I remembered the point being situated and got out of the car to take a picture of the two of us. After several tries we actually got a picture standing on the spot, but with the Walmart sign over the doors in the background. Will have to post the picture at a later date as upon arriving in Kamloops I left my camera at my brother and sister-in-law's house.
