2010-06-28 39 -86 -- In Smithville, about three miles south of Bloomington, a few feet off Fairfax Rd. Erik showed up late at night.

2010-01-23 39 -86 -- In a neighborhood on the east side of Indianapolis. Kira and Erik stop by on their way to CostCo. They were beat to the location by the Indianapolis Fire Department.

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.

2009-11-06 39 -86 -- Near/in Moore Creek, about a mile north of Lake Monroe. Kira, Erik, and Duncan try for the Walking on water geohash achievement.

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.

2009-09-09 39 -86 -- User:Djhobby made it to the hash at lunch and followed Erik's advice and earned the Speed Racer Achievement. I'll wait for my award in the mail.

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

2008-09-13 39 -85 -- The 39,-85 graticule's coordinates fell in Indianapolis's northeast suburbs near Fishers

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!

2008-06-14 39 -86 -- In the RCA plant's private truck lot. Brett suggested the small field at 39.80772834,-86.03692889, but was not able to make it. Tim was there.

2008-05-25 39 -86 -- The first time an Indianapolis geohash is reached, almost: in someone's front yard.

2008-05-24 39 -86 -- In the middle of the golf course at Bloomington Country Club. (2008-05-24 40 -86 is closer to Indy, and not private property!)

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.
