[edit] Plans

I have the day off work, so I was glad to see the day's hash point was someplace I could reach and nearby.

[edit] Expedition

A pretty straight-forward trip. Last year I bought a Looxcie Camera and thought this would be a good use for it. I started my GPS tracklog and was on my way.

The hashpoint was on the south side of the highway and just east of the 60th street bridge. I wanted to earn the [[Speed_racer_achievement|Speed Racer Achievement] so I kept my speed up as far as I could then flipped on my signal and moved to the shoulder to begin braking.

Once parked, I got out and took some pictures. Nothing particularly stunning. Just a dreary roadside on a February day.

[edit] Tracklog

My GPS tracklog is available in GPX and KMZ formats.

[edit] Video

I took this video with my Looxie camera.
