In the truck parking lot at Fort York Motel in eastern Mississauga.
It was a beautiful day, so I decided I should spend it going to a parking lot in Mississauga.
I took Line 2 Bloor-Danforth to Kipling subway station. From there I was faced with two choices. I could have taken the MiWay bus all the way to the hashpoint. MiWay is the Mississauga municipal transit organization, and I assume that it's named after that one Frank Sinatra song that everyone hates. The other option was to take the TTC bus 112 West Mall to the Mississauga-Toronto border and walk the rest of the way. This second option was, if you consider my already-purchased monthly transit pass a sunk cost, completely free, and it gave an opportunity to take a nice walk on a nice day, so I went with that.
The bus dropped me off at the intersection of Dundas Street West and West Mall Crescent, the latter being a glorified onramp to The West Mall, a major arterial road. I crossed Etobicoke Creek to reach Mississauga.
The walk to the hashpoint was along Dundas Street East, a major street that is west of Dundas Street West. It wasn't too hot out, but the beating sun made it feel that way. The road was lined with various strip malls and also there was a duck statue. The hashpoint itself was in the truck parking lot behind a motel. I snapped a couple of pictures and then headed back the same way I came.
On the (very long) subway ride back I got some reading done: I am working my way through "Rectangles are Nonnegative Juntas", a wonderful paper by Göös, Lovett, Meka, Watson, and Zuckerman that is very complicated and proves, among other things, that rectangles are nonnegative juntas.
