[edit] Expedition

Like 2014-01-02 42 -85, too easy not to go for: actually on a road, close to where the bus drops me during my commute home. This is just a little west of our first Michigan hash at 2013-08-17 42 -85.

Since it was actually on the road, and dark, and cold, I thought it best to go for (frozen) Speed Racer. Unfortunately my cell phone and I were not up to the photography task, so I have no usable pics to show. I drove westbound along Richmond St about 6 pm, and tried to shoot pictures of two 30-mph speed limit signs as I went along (white blurry rectangle), one shot of the graveyard (black), one of the speedometer showing 31 mph as I went by (unintelligible sea-anemone impression from lit dial and car vibration), and one shot of the street sign at the nearby intersection with Walker Ave (vague green blurry rectangle). So it's a total loss in the expedition-photos department.
