On a private field in Liberty, NC.




I was on a road trip. On a whim, I opened the Geohashing app, and discovered that I was, at that moment, 4 miles away from the hashpoint in the Chapel Hill graticule. I had two birds in the car with me, it had been a long day, and it looked like the hashpoint was on private property, but I couldn't pass that up.

Unfortunately, when I arrived, the hashpoint was indeed in the middle of someone's field, and the access point was their driveway. I'm a shy hasher and not up for the "Hi, I'm From The Internet" speech... not to mention while I was traveling with pets in the car.

Hashpoint failed! But it was a scenic ten-minute detour from my route home.

Birdray earned the Prize poultry Consolation Prize
by chickening out on the (35, -79) geohash on 2012-11-24 because they were too shy to talk their way onto private property.
