In a field adjacent to a large metal building, just northwest of Gainesville. Easiest access was from U.S. 82.



When I set out for this location from my house about 30 miles to the south at noon, the plan was to make a quick trip up the interstate to Gainesville, reach the location, and return immediately afterwards. Needless to say, things changed.


The location was quite easy to reach. It was located in a field of wildflowers between some large power lines and the large, open, metal building seen in the pictures below. I chose to post the poster on some exposed polywood adjacent to the nearest door into the building; hopefully it will be seen before long. (If that poster is what brought you here, please tell us here!) Based on the inside (the door was wide open, so I went in and took the panorama you see below), it was constructed fairly recently and is used for livestock auctions.

Upon leaving the location, I realized that the hash for the adjacent graticule was pretty much a straight shot 60 miles east on U.S. 82, and then this happened.


I don't own a self-contained GPS and have yet to find a decent tracklog-capable iOS app. If anybody has any suggestions, feel free to ping me on my talk page.
