sidewalk in a suburban neighborhood south of Grand Rapids, MI, USA



We were headed out to help a friend set up her house for a party, but she didn't seem to be in a panic, and the hashpoint was only about ten minutes south of town and very easily accessible about a mile off the highway. It also offered a two-way option: we could either figure out how to use the GPS in Susanne's fancy new phone, or we could go for the no-batteries because the location was so well-defined it would be easy to find without any electronic help at all. We went for the latter.

The hashpoint was at the west edge of a sidewalk, about ten feet north of a particular road intersection. We were there about 5 pm, but saw no evidence of other (nonstationary) geohashers. Off to the party...
