Additional information

This wayspot does not offer safe pedestrian access. This wayspot is located on a loading dock of a UPS regional facility. Attached photos demonstrate both the location of the wayspot on a satellite view, and the closest location that can be accessed by most players (in the UPS employee parking lot).

This wayspot should be retired, as it does not meet the eligibility criteria. It is not a great place for exploration (as it is in a loading dock surrounded by a barbed wire, chain link fence). For the same reasons it is not a great place to be social with others, and this loading dock is not a great place for exercise unless you are loading UPS trucks or running to avoid being hit by a truck backing into the loading dock.

This wayspot fails to meet the acceptance criteria, as it is not safely and publicly accessible as it is behind barbed wire in an area where tractor trailer trucks routinely back into a loading dock.

Given the fact this wayspot is inaccessible, it is impossible to determine if the object pictured actually exists, or if it is located in the location where it has been placed.

Additionally, this wayspot meets the description of Rejection Criteria 2: "Location obstructs the driveways of emergency services or may interfere with the operations of fire stations, police stations, hospitals, military bases, industrial sites, power plants, or air traffic control towers." The UPS distribution center is an indusrial site, and the location of a wayspot on a loading dock would interfere with the operations of UPS .

This wayspot also meets the description of Rejection Criteria 3: "Locations that are intentionally and strategically placed to provide advantage to a single player." At present, the wayspot is only accessible to UPS employees and spoofers.

For these reasons, the wayspot should be retired.
