[edit] Plans

I'm driving up to Green Bay from Milwaukee today (leaving around 1700, arrive around 1900) for work the next two days. The hash is about half an hour out of my way but totally worth it to celebrate Geohashing Day in a new graticule.

[edit] Expedition

Normally I would have stalled before leaving for my trip. I would have preferred to stay at home a while longer and enjoy dinner and maybe a drink with my wife. But with the possibility of making it to a hash right near my client before nightfall was too tempting.

The drive was pretty straight forward. I listened to Decoder Ring Theatre episodes of The Red Panda one after another trying to catch up. It put me in a mood of old time science fiction that would later come in handy.

Arriving in the area I snapped a picture of the entrance to the area and street sign. The hashpoint itself was just on the side of the road with a wooded area on side and private property on the other. More pictures and it was time for the cool part:

GeoSquishy at Red Rocket Shell!

I had spotted the gas station from Google Maps before I left. I was hoping they had Geosquishies and I was right!

After enjoying my drink, I made the short drive to my hotel.
