The Indianapolis graticule is at latitude 39, longitude -86. This graticule includes most of Marion County, as well as Bloomington, home of IU. It also has all of Lake Monroe, which is the largest lake in the state.
2009-11-19 39 -86 -- In the Wilson Sports Complex, near the tennis courts. As this is ridiculously close to their home (but just 77 meters too far for a Couch Potato Geohash honorable mention), Erik and Kira make a quick visit. Also their geocaching friend Mouse! stopped by.
2009-09-09 39 -86 -- In the middle of the street in a suburban neighborhood a couple miles southwest of Bloomington. Erik is going to try and convince Kira to try for a very slow Speed Racer Achievement sometime this evening.
2009-08-10 39 -86 -- In front of a home in suburban Indianapolis
2009-03-28 39 -86 -- On the corner of a golf course in Bloomington
2009-03-17 39 -86 -- A few miles east of Bloomington, on the way to Nashville
2008-09-06 39 -86 -- North of Indianapolis in the Bridgefield subdivision near 79th and Ditch
2008-08-30 39 -86 -- Near Lake Monroe, 6 miles SW of Bloomington. Kira, Erik, Neeraj and Duncan were there at roughly 4:15pm. Appeared to be technically private property, so we knocked on the nearest house's front door and asked permission before trudging through their "backyard". Much thanks!
2008-05-25 39 -86 -- The first time an Indianapolis geohash is reached, almost: in someone's front yard.
2008-05-23 39 -86 -- North-west of Gosport, in a forest behind a farmer's field. Suso came here on Saturday, but it was on private property. This may be the first one in this graticule to be attempted.
