Location[edit]

At Steak & Shake in Bolingbrook

Participants[edit]

Plans[edit]

Mystrsyko - This place is a favorite of mine and my co-workers, so we'll probably be stopping by between 10pm and midnight.

Expedition[edit]

Checking the hash points today around 4pm (a little late for a meetup, lol), I was delighted to see the point in my hometown of Bolingbrook, and flabergasted to see it at the Steak & Shake restaurant on Weber Road. My coworkers and I tend to frequent the place after work, so after a few texts and phone calls, I arranged to meet some of them after they got out of work at 10pm.

At roughly 10:30, the group of us met up and swamped the unfortunate servers with orders. Our favorite server was working, though, so she played it up and we all had a great time. Our group consisted of myself (mystrsyko), Dolphintreasure, my sister Becky (Rookiek13), Dan, Taylor, Matt, John, and Gabe, all of whom became accidental geohashers once I explained the purpose of the get together. Most of them didn't seem to care, but some showed some interest.

After hanging around for a bit and paying our tabs, myself, Dolphintreasure and Becky went around back with the gps to look for the hash point while everyone else went home. We determined it to be somewhere a few feet inside the building, placing it in the Steak & Shake kitchen. We were within our margin of error, however, so the three of us took some photos in front of the drive-through sign next to the hash point and made our way home to be out of the cold.
