HEY GILBY where are the MAYNARD's coords. You know some of us can't get there w/o AutoRouting!

This could have worked for you:

I see you guys have been holding out on me!

Not really. Google is your friend. I found it using this search:
"convert address to gps coordinates"

Just type in an address in google maps, then double click the map near where the arrow is. Click on "link to the page" and the coordinates are then in the URL.

I've been "geocoding" like that for over a year now.

FWIW - That'll get you to about the right block but not necessarily right to the establishment you are looking for.

I bantered around the idea of going, but it's looking like I'll be at work for a while yet. And honestly I don't want to try chasing people down at cache locations or try to find everyone at Maynards (sounds like that'll be crowded anyway, I don't do well in crowds).

See ya on Sunday instead.

If you are talking about the fact that the coords I gave you for my house we're a ways off, that was from rickrich's geo-code script.

I switched to using google much later.

Hah!

Great event Gilby. I especially liked 'jRest is Cute'. Which, for those of you who don't know, he is.
