[edit] Plans

Today's coordinates are very reachable, and it should be possible to get the speed racer achievement since it looks like they're right on the road.

[edit] Expedition

After getting home from work, I headed out towards today's coordinates. I called a friend who lives near the coordinates to invite him along, but he was unfortunately busy. I arrived at the spot just after 8pm. The hashpoint was located near the center of the road, and I drove through it 3 times in all. The first time, I drove through (or at least within GPS tolerance) at about 10MPH, to find the exact spot. Then I parked my car, got out, and snapped a couple of pictures.

Then I got back in my car, got turned around, and headed back to go through the hashpoint at 35+MPH (the speed limit). I succeeded going through the hash at speed, but failed to get a decent picture. So I turned around and tried it again. The 3rd (and last) time driving through the hash I managed to get a picture showing the speedometer (at about 38MPH) and the GPS about 14ft from the coordinates, which I submit as proof for the Speed Racer achievement.

[edit] Tracklog

A tracklog for part of the expedition was saved, and can be provided if anyone wants it.
