Happy New Year everyone! I was happily surprised to see this hashpoint appear, on public land, about 2.5 km from my home. It even so happened that there was an almost dead straight path between the two, so I got ready to make this a Walk and Juggernaut geohash. Quite a nice surprise after spending December with no geohashes at all. The weather was nice; in fact we broke the record for warmest New Year's Day with temperatures in double digits. Kat and I left home, turned left and walked straight ahead for about 2 km, at which point we made a slight left turn to get closer to the straight-line path, but were foiled when we couldn't cross between two rows of houses where that appeared to be possible on the GPS map. We were forced to walk around the buildings on the right side, but kept as far left as possible to minimize our deviation from the straight line. Once we reached the hash we took a few pictures, and then walked back home again.

After examining the GPS track log, we found a maximum deviation of 95 m from a straight line measuring 2.6 km. Therefore the deviation ratio is 1:27, qualifying us for the Juggernaut award!
