[edit] Plans

Heading out from work during my lunch break. We should be there around 12:30. After that we are heading to Smash Burger!

I (Haberdasher) hadn't seen the above plans in time and was uncertain about the practicality of this hashpoint anyway, but has found time for reaching it later in the evening, hoping to arrive around 6:30 PM.

[edit] Expedition

We (TJAMM and I) arrived at the park shortly after noon. It was beautiful weather in a cute, little park. A fountain gurgled nearby. People were sitting around reading or eating lunch. We strolled to the geohash location between a shady tree and a park bench. In all a very nice place to visit. I'm glad we went.

I (Haberdasher) ended up getting there around 7:15 due to reasons. It was still light out, and the weather was indeed nice. There was a festival going on, so the park was somewhat busy and finding a parking space was a bit challenging, but the actual hashpoint itself was quite easy to reach. After some GPS-dancing and inspecting passersby on the off-chance that they too were geohashers, I headed out, my first geohash in over a month successfully completed.
