[edit] Locations I've scouted

2008-05-17_37_-122 with xkcd and emad, before the site was launched. Nice wooded area, near a house that said "we don't call 911, we shoot first".

2008-05-21_37_-121 with relsqui. First point after the launch, which in lieu of going swimming in the SF graticule, we went to the East Bay one instead. Santa Cruz mountains, the road got 150m from the point then had about 150ft drop.

2008-05-24_37_-121. Ran into Joe(+2 young kids) on the way there. Tried to climb up the mountain, but too steep and too many thorny bushes stopped me about 500m from the target. On the way out, ran into a number of other geohashers, and ended up having a very nice picnic.

2008-06-01_37_-121 - offramp of 880 on Coleman, trivial to get to, got a nice group even though it was a Sunday.

2008-06-07_37_-122 - Another water point, but rode the bike to the bridge, met CWolves there, and scaled a razorwire fence to walk on the pier. Got a nasty sunburn on both arms.

2008-06-14 37 -122

2008-06-16 37 -122 - Rode to the hash after work, ran in to TW there after riding into the nursery.
