[edit] Plans

To drive through the hash at about noon, then stop to take pictures and see if anyone else makes it.

[edit] Expedition

Eldin reached the point a little before noon, and drove through at 40mph for the Speed racer achievement. He then stopped about 800ft down the road and walked back to the point to place a marker and take pictures. After placing the marker, while getting ready to take pictures, a passing car slowed down and the driver waved. The car then proceeded to turn around and stop near the hashpoint. The driver turned out to be Ojones and his family. I introduced myself, and we talked a bit about geohashing, ourselves, and the local area. Pictures were taken. And then we went on our separate ways. It was good to finally meet another geohasher while out geohashing, and good to see another geohasher appearing in the local graticule.

Michael5000 drove about 375 miles after the 2013-08-03 45 -121 expedition, reaching the point at last twilight to claim a double hash for the day.
