[edit] The Plan

Zimjimmy: My friend an I will most likely reach the location - which is in the woods between Joslyn Rd and a golf course in Lake Orion - between 1 and 2 pm. This will be my first expedition.

[edit] What Actually Happened

Zimjimmy: My first expedition! Yay! I picked up my friend from his house at about 1:17 pm. Then we drove all the way to Lake Orion using Google Maps directions, and then near the end a GPS reciever. We arrived near the hash at around 2:22 pm. It appeared that the hash was inside a golf course. I then realized that the nearest place to park was a very wide gravel shoulder up ahead. As I was about to pull off the road, my car was suddenly hit by a golf ball that flew right out of the course, over the fence, and into my left headlight. We got out of the car and looked around, but did not find the ball. We gave up on that, and stepped onto the asphalt bike path that went along the fence. We walked for a little while until we could reach the nearest possible location to the hash, contemplated jumping the fence, then decided against it and just took pictures instead. I also left a card with the date and the main page URL at the location near the hash. Afterward, we headed to a nearby geocache, which was in a thickly wooded area, and found that there was nothing of interest, so we left a feather, a musical shaker, and a printout of the cover stories page with our names, location, and the main page URL written on it. Then we sat in a nearby parking lot and ate rabbit-shaped cheddar crackers and threw rocks at a tree. Then we took the scenic route home.
