Only rseasmith showed up, and he could only get within 269 feet of the hash. Explanation below.

[edit] Expedition

The hash was located here.

It was located in someone's back yard, and the nearby road wasn't conducive to parking, so I drove around looking for a better spot. Luckily, directly behind the hash point was a large industrial building where tractor trailers would unload cargo. I wasn't sure if I could park there, but it didn't exactly seem to be a hot spot of activity on a Saturday afternoon (See pictures below).

I parked my car as close as I felt like going. I waited around for a while and decided if I couldn't get to the hash point I might as well explore the surrounding area. The industrial building had a metal ladder going up to the roof, and (against my better judgment) I climbed up to the top of it to explore the roof. There wasn't anything up there except for gravel and exhaust ducts.

After I snapped some photos, I decided I better leave the area in case someone saw me on top of the building and called the police (doubtful, but I'm paranoid like that). It was 4:20 when I left and I figured no one else was going to show up. I drove by the hash point one more time on my way back and no one was there.

In total, it was an exciting day. I climbed on top of a building and saw some really desolate farm land.
