In the street right in front of the Smith Community Center, in the neighborhood of Mark Commons, MD, USA. This makes it eligible for the Speed Racer Achivement!




I noticed the notification from the notification service and I realized the place was less than two miles away. Had I been less busy, I would have walked there for another achievement. I planned to get in my car and drive there using Waze.


(Notes above from the Geohash Droid app kept for posterity)

I got in my car and at first tried using the "directions" option in the app. Alas, it opened in Google Maps, whereas my preferred navigation app for driving is Waze. Feature request: allow me to choose the navigation app!

I got there and at first pulled into the community center parking lot. I then fired up the Geohash Droid app. I had already driven *through* the hash point before realizing I was already there.

I pulled over and got a selfie, then tried the door on the community center. I think I once took yoga classes there many years ago and I wanted to verify. Alas, the doors were locked. Ignoring the side-eyes from the parents watching their kids tool around on their bikes, I walked to the back of the building and tried the door there. NOTHING SUSPICIOUS GOING ON HERE.

I took a picture of the side of the center, uploaded it, and went upon my merry way. Success!
