Expedition[edit]

I've been looking out for geohashes each day as I bum my way around at home not being gainfully employed. Most have been sort-of accessible but not very interesting, so I'd been feeling guilty about not going for any.

Not today though! Seeing this hash near the Altona wetlands I jumped on my bike, did some things in the city, then came back the other way via Seddon and Williamstown to get to Altona and hence the hash, stopping only for some potato cakes at a fish and chips place.

When I got to the locality, my ride through the Cheetham Wetlands, which is where I was, quickly turned to mud, so I back-tracked and found another way, this one involving ditching my bike and proceeding on foot. Soon I came to a creek, which I washed across sans shoes and socks (still drenched my jeans though). But the path got easier and soon I was walking along a narrow spit of land with metres to go.

It started raining, but I already had it. The hash was an arm's length out into a pondage, so I captured it, and my surroundings, including a great view of the city skyline and oncoming storm. I am making my way back to the bike as we speak.

Here is the route I took.
