Expedition[edit]

I left 2014-08-17 41 -86 and headed this way. The map showed the hashpoint between a house at the end of a dead-end road and a creek. The road leading to the house was gravel, and the driveway and parking area next to the house were under construction. However, the house looked finished and occupied. I rang the bell but no one answered. I trespassed with impunity; it's taken me over a year to get to a hashpoint in this graticule.

The creek was in a steep ravine and I was worried I might end up with a Cliffs of Despair achievement rather than progress on Minesweeper. However, the back yard had a sort of "finger mesa" that led toward the hashpoint, and I just had to go a couple of meters down the steep part toward the creek to get the nice green on-target numbers from Geohash Droid. I tried to take some pics that showed how deep and steep the creek valley was but they didn't look too impressive on the little screen, so I collected a proof-shot and moved on.

Three graticules to go for Minesweeper now!
