[edit] Geohashes

2008-07-16 47 -122 HarlequinsDad, my buddy Kevin(who got dragged along), and I made the trek to Vashon Island. While the Google satelite photo showed ample beach, there was none. We must assume that the photo was taken at a very low tide and our visit was at high tide. The exact point was under about 15 feet of water and about 150 yards offshore - so we got as close as we could. My GPS showed: 47 degrees 27.48 minutes North, 122 degrees 26.43 minutes West, and a distance to the mark of .09 miles. My kingdom for a boat!

2008-07-30 47 -122 HarlequinsDad, and I dashed down in the evening to this quiet neighborhood in Tacoma - middle of S. Cushman Ave between S. 35th and S. 36th. By the time we got there it was 9pm and kinda dark, so our pictures just show the map, GPS and coordinates (to be posted when I figure out how). Speed limit of 25 mph made "Speed Racer" very easy.

2008-09-01 47 -122 HarlequinsDad, and I made it up to the hash on foot because it was close enough that we could, being only about 4 miles from our house. Made it there at nearly the same moment as Ssov and waited for Thomcat to get there so we could have a group photo before getting picked up by my stepmom and heading out. all in all a good time.
