[edit] Expedition

[edit] Thomcat

Discovered today's geohash point early this morning (though Anthill was slow to respond for some reason). I figured if it works out, I'll go.

Later in the day, I saw Boomzilla mentioned he might go. Good enough reason to visit on the way home from work (well, okay, 5-10 miles out of the way).

Punched the coords into the Prius GPS and shot right to the street in question. Not a peep from the school (do they celebrate Columbus Day?) but there were other kids entering the neighborhood - middle school or late elementary. Nice day for walking too, which can be unusual in this area!

Android GPS was a little slow to respond, but I eventually danced around to the actual spot. Sidewalk chalk in hand, I marked a nice message and pinned a map to the nearby sign. "Auction Winner Parking" was right next to the geohash point.

That done, I snapped a few photos and headed off to Half Price Books on the way home. Found two items from my want list - huzzah!
