[edit] Location

Right next to a bridge over a stream in Mt. Airy, MD/Lisbon, MD

OfficeLinebacker headed over after work

[edit] Plans

The plan was to leave from Bethesda at 3pm to try to beat traffic to get there by 4:30. This was a success even though I stopped for ME Swings coffee beans on the way.

[edit] Expedition

Well I got there and I didn't realize there was a stream there--the satellite photo looked like it was a small clearing behind a tree at an intersection. I was worried I wouldn't be able to get there but after I made a U-turn I pulled over onto the shoulder just before the bridge. I hopped the guardrail and was able to walk out into the stream bed.

Based on how soft and muddy the ground was, and how the grasses were swept down, there was at least two feet of water covering the exact spot within the past few days. Luckily today, the geohash spot was about two feet from the edge of the river. Had it been a few days earlier, I would have been MNB (Mother Nature's Bitch).

Pretty little spot.

Note: cell phone reception was very poor and picture uploading at the exact spot failed. Thus the distances--uploading was completed on the way home.
