[edit] Expedition

After the previous night's hash, we had plenty of time to sleep in and before attempting this hash at the 4:00 hour. The hashpoint is located northeast of town, near Holcomb Bridge road the Chattahoochee River. The actual point was in the backyard of a house. A very, very nice house. We drove up to the hashpoint around 3:35 and sat in the car, 150 feet from the hashpoint, until we could figure out our next move. The neighborhood was very nice, and there seemed to be a

party going on at the house in question. We did some driving around the neighborhood, part to kill time until 4:00 and part to work up enough courage to walk up to the front door and ask for permission to photograph the point. We came back around 3:55 and decided to go for it, utilizing the "We're two students from Atlanta working on an internet scavenger hunt" approach.

Success! Someone from the party answered the door and found the homeowner/host, to whom we explained as best we could why we were there. He seemed mildly amused by what we were doing, and granted us permission to walk around into his backyard. He even recommended we use the basketball court in his backyard, which was a white rectangle on the satellite photo, to orient ourselves to the exact point. Needless to say, we thanked him profusely. There were some kids playing basketball on the court when we walked around to the point, and we took all of the necessary pictures. Then we departed, glad we had decided to go for it.
