[edit] Expedition

I took off from Atlanta International airport at 8:55pm to land at Buffalo/Niagara at 10:59pm. I was hoping that would give me enough time to get a car, cross the border and make it there before midnight. I started out making good time. It didn't take long to cross the border. But the closer and closer I got, I knew I wasn't going to make it before Saturday.

I arrived at 12:17am and decided not to trek into the farmers field in the pitch black darkness of the night only to still make a Coordinates not reached because of the wrong day.

I settled at 181 feet(55 meters) as the closest point vowing to make another Canadian Geohash in the future.
