Right on the edge of a parking lot near the Biggs Army Airfield inside Fort Bliss.
This was an awesome opportunity too good to pass up. At my now third time in the US I noticed the Hashpoint for this Sunday would finally lie in an accessible location near me – moreover one where I could get some new achievements ;)
While I didn't know the specific location, I've been to the general area before. Fortunately, the excellent Maps from Google and the specific hash location really called for a try without GPS. I memorized which turns on which roads I would have to take and to my delight, I didn't even need the larger scale printout to get to the parking lot in question. Once stopped there, I used the roads, corners and the marked lines from each parking spot as reference and compared them to the small-scale printout, which took only a few seconds. The spot was practically unmissable.
Moreover, the place in question lies within the not publicly accessible Fort Bliss Army installation, which I just happened to have access to.
