Plans[edit]

Don't know about anyone else, but Jim was going to go by on his way home from work. Original plan was to take public transportation, but I ended up with my car, so that's how I went by.

Expedition[edit]

Benture: Frogman pointed out that today's hashpoint was right on my regular bicycle commute route! Even though it was quite cold and very windy, I stopped by on my ride home and got as close as I could (within 7 meters). Ironically, I had stopped at this corner one other time: when it was so hot outside that my bike tire exploded due to the internal air expansion because of the heat! No, Les Schwab does NOT repair bicycle tires.

Michael5000: I drive by this location two or three times a week, and was going to drive by it again today anyway. I didn't have my GPS gadget, but I stopped anyway to lurk around the tire store and take a selfie with the sign.

Jim: I programmed my GPS and went by on my way home, later in the evening. The 72 bus stop is actually right in front of the shop, and I found my "close enough" point at 28 feet or so in the back corner of the building, which was long since closed.
