On Woodward Avenue in Sunland/Tujunga. Los Angeles graticule.
- If both Boppy5 and I can make it to the point at about 2:45pm then that is when we will be there. Otherwise, it will be 8:00pm this evening. Bravissimo594 (talk) 14:30, 24 February 2014 (EST)
Success at 8:30pm! Once Boppy5 and I were both done with our daytime tasks, we headed out, driving along I-210 to the Sunland/Tujunga area of Los Angeles. We arrived at the hashpoint, chalked the spot with an "X" and some "KCDs," placed a marker nearby, and took some photos. The late hour made the front-facing camera a bit dark in its photos. The hash point, being in the street right in front of Apperson Street Elementary School, gets plenty of traffic in the mornings and afternoons, but only one car passed by while we were there.
Two dogs barked a few times in the fenced front yard of the house across the street from the school, but they did not pay as much attention to suspicious geohashers as I thought they would. But when a neighbor walked his dog past them, the two got so riled up that they seemed to get almost vicious with each other. They snarled, growled, and barked at each other so loudly and for so long that the owner (finally) came out to break them up. If it took that much noise to get the owner's attention then I bet the neighborhood often has to put up with quite a lot of barking on a regular basis.
To complete the adventure, we took a scenic route home, exploring neighborhoods that we had never visited before, including those along Apperson Street, Day Street, and Sky Ridge Drive. We got to see some audacious deer that could not care less that we were driving slowly past them as they picked clover out of someone's front lawn.
After all of the explorations, we made it back to base at about 9:30pm.
