On 6th St, at the alley halfway between Main St. and Grove St.

[edit] Plans

Since this is conveniently located on a downtown street corner, I plan to stop by on my lunch break around noon. I also plan to try for a tron achievement. Anyone want to join me?

[edit] Expedition

Ojones arrived at 12:05 with a co-worker then waited a couple minutes and took a picture. Went over to JimmyJohns and grabbed a sandwich then came back and waited till about 12:20 before heading back to work. Hash is less than 500 meters from work for honorable mention and walking achievements.


Eldin:
I got a bit of a later start than expected and didn't arrive at the hashpoint until after 12:30. Reaching the hashpoint was fairly easy, though it proved to be a little further out into the road than I'd expected. After reaching the hash and taking a few pictures, I stopped at Jimmy John's to grab a sandwich to eat on my way back to work.

My attempted Tron Geohash was successful, but my phone rebooted at one point on my trip (apparently, geohash droid, recording a tracklog, and playing ingress all at once is a bit much for my current phone), so the tracklog is broken into 2 sections.

Temperatures were in the mid-to-high 20's (Fahrenheit) the whole time I was out, so this was a frozen geohash, even though I didn't get an actual temperature reading at the hashpoint.

The hash was 0.66km from my workplace. So this was an honorable mention for the Cubicle Geohash.

In the many years I've lived in Boise, I've driven/walked/bicycled through or very near this hashpoint on many occasions. I drive on 6th street at least once or twice a month. I don't have any actual proof of this. But I'm claiming the Deja Vu hash anyway.

I may visit this hash again after work, to grab the Pub Geohash achievement, since there are several pubs visible from the hashpoint.


  • Having a drink after work at Tom Grainies Sport Pub. The front door is within 50 ft of the hash. -- Eldin (talk) @43.6142,-116.2017 18:40, 23 January 2014 (MST)
