Farmland east of Darlington, Wisconsin, off County Highway M


SwensonJ and son


This is about as close to my home (Platteville, WI) as a hash can be in the Rockford, Illinois graticule. I'm trying for the XKCD meetup: Saturday at 4 p.m.


This was a straightforward trip. To make things more interesting, my son and I were aiming for the Tron achievement.

The trip took about 40 minutes from Platteville: we arrived at 3:45 p.m. The hash is maybe 100m from the road. A quick walk across alfalfa, and a short GPS dance, were all we needed. We stayed until 4 p.m., but as we weren't expecting anyone else, bailed out right afterward.

The trip home was much longer in miles, but not many more minutes, because we spent a lot of it on the divided highway. We stopped at the toy store in Mineral Point, though, so we didn't get home until about 5:15. We attentively got off the highway one exit early and circled around our house to approach it from the north and finish off the Tron in style.


Only later did we realize that, by completing a geohash in Lafayette County, Wisconsin, we had satisfied David's Tale of Two Hashes challenge! Swensonj 23:18, 24 November 2012 (EST)
