Location[edit]

Seems to be right between the two southbound lanes of North Main Street, Providence, RI USA, on the south side of the intersection with Rochambeau Avenue.

Plans[edit]

Go there on the ride home. If traffic permits, try for Speed Racer. If stopped at traffic light immediately north, probably can't get up to speed limit before reaching the hash.

ChrisG: Happened to look at my phone for today's location, and shocked that 1) it's 379.37 meters from my couch, and 2) I'm not going to be the first person here today. It's 10:20PM, and I'm heading out. Somehow, Mrs ChrisG understands why I'm going out.

Expedition[edit]

Rainy day and a busy street - drove through the intersection just a bit below the 25 MPH speed limit, which was really scary because NOBODY else was going that slow. Pulled over at a nearby bus stop and walked back to stand still long enough for my Garmin to settle down and take a few photos. I've driven through this intersection at least twice a week for the last 30 years, but hardly ever at the speed limit....

ChrisG: A nice brisk walk. Traffic was light, but still somehow playing in traffic isn't easy... but I guess it's easier than having to traipse through the cemetery that's 50 meters from the hashpoint. I took a screencap of my GPS while standing in the middle of the road, and pics from the sidewalk. Unless there's a couch point, it'll never be easier than tonight.
