[edit] Plans

Jim got a notification email that the hashpoint was near, so he looked, and it was. It was just north of Highway OR-26, near 185th.

Planning consisted of programming the GPS, and printing out the Google Maps page.

[edit] Expedition

I headed to this hashpoint after work, but I suspect no one else was there at 4PM.

After recovering from a wrong turn, Jim arrived close to the hashpoint. The nearest road was actually a dead-end road with a sign that saying that the road would be completed after there was more development, and that we should contact Washington County Land Development for more info.

There was a path next to the sign, so I followed it. I was surrounded by many raptors. But these were't native ones. These were exotic, invasive Himalayan raptors, but they were being held back from the path by some sort of force field. I made it past them and attempted to loop back, following my GPS, (Because Technology is always right.) almost into someone's back yard.

Not feeling up for an Ambassador Geohasher, I gave up and went grocery shopping.

There may be (poor) pictures someday if I can figure out how to get them out of my cell phone. (Cell phone is gone. They're never coming out.)
