Plans[edit]

Drive by on morning commute, possible return afternoon.

Expedition[edit]

(Thomcat) At first I merely planned to drive by and snap a photo of the spot. Reached the neighborhood easily enough, spotted a nearby "change of land use" sign, thought it might be worth parking to investigate further.

Once parked, I walked to the edge of the lot and discovered the geohash to be only a few steps away - in fact, it seemed to be where a neighbor has been (probably illegally) dumping grass clippings. I snapped some photos of the spot and uploaded, and said neighbor's small dog made an appearance. My friendly wave was met with "he will bite you" and other friendly comments.

Instead of going into a description of the sport, I merely explained I was taking some photos of this lot, you know, for the land use thingy. :-)

Anyhow, geohash achieved. You might see in the photo I am wearing the same shirt I wore for my very first geohash nearly six years ago. This marks my 125th successful geohash, and both my and Seattle's first Geohashing Day success (we got Mouseover last year).

(Olof) Took a late night walk and got to the location at quarter to midnight, as it is just 5 minutes from my home. Too dark to see Thomcat's marker. First geohash achieved! Also, as this was 400 m from my home, it's a couch potato honorable mention!
