On a suburban driveway in Braybrook.



A very easy geohash this one. I'd spotted this in the morning, went out to do various things in the afternoon, then, before dinner I jumped on my road bike, road west for 25 mins and arrived at the hash.

When I got there I saw that there was a guy sitting at a table in his open garage just behind the hash, which was in the middle of his driveway. I thought this might stop me from reaching the exact location, but this wasn't to be.

As I arrived, a van pulled up which seemed to be delivering food for some sort of catering business. Using this disruption, I ventured into the driveway and asked the man in the garage if I could stand in the middle of his driveway for a second to take a photo. I expected the usual incomprehension and refusal.

To my surprise, the man said 'Yes, no problem', and immediately ignored me. So I stood at the hash point, took a screen shot of my phone for GPS proof, and a couple of photos. Hash success!

I rode home a different way, taking the Maribyrnong River route home, which was quite awesome during sunset. The whole hash took less than an hour. A tiny consolation for the appalling election results the previous day.

Here is the route of my trip.
