Plans[edit]

Stop by mid-day and leave a poster or two nearby. If dry enough, chalk the street also.

Expedition[edit]

As the first picture from my office parking lot indicates, it was definitely damp. Some would say actively raining. Also while driving out of the complex I spotted a bird in the local creek. Egret? See closeup below.

Reached the street of the hashpoint easily, no chalk on this wet rainy day. I might have even driven through the point, but a lot of people milling about meant more eyes on the road than on the geohashdroid. I took the first left past to examine 38th Ave SE, which on the google satellite view looks like just trees. Indeed it is no longer trees but a street lined with houses. Ah, development.

Coming back to where the people milled, I parked and milled with them. Waiting for other geohashers? I suspected not. Instead I worked my way to the hash point, snapping a photo and handling uploads.

Next the thing they were all waiting for roared north. Many parents moved over to collect their little ones, fresh from a pre school or kindergarten. Families now complete, they took to their individual vehicles and left me to my geohash.

I then put up a few posters for the neighbors or anyone else who arrives, then headed home. The dampness continued into the evening, with a light rain falling all through the baseball game I officiated.

Here's hoping we have a drier weekend!
