Brandon convinced his dad to ditch work for the afternoon and to come along on the adventure.
We left Manhattan by car and headed west into New Jersey. The rain soon turned into snow. Along the way we found out that the hashpoint was with in walking distance of a NJ Transit station. The point itself was tucked just inside someone's front yard behind a set of bushes. We took a picture in the driveway and when no one came to chase use out we grew slightly bolder. There was a bench just inside the yard almost exactly at the hash point; so we sat on it. It was quite wet.
In the mood for a squishy--take that snow!--we stopped a McDonald's we had passed half a mile from the hashpoint. Alas, it was the smallest McDonald's we had ever seen and there was no room for a frozen carbonated beverage vending machine. We ate there anyway.
