Heading out of kelso, in a block of land helpfully located between two roads.



I was considering skipping this hash. I had no time to do it during daylight hours and when I got home I was feeling too sick to really do much. But, it's a special day, it's close, and I needed to go to the servo to get some lemonade to settle my stomach anyway. So I drove, which is a rarity these days. Parked on Limekilns Road, hopped a fence and walked there. I figured it was crown land and was expecting one fence on the boundary. I was rather puzzled when I wandered 100 metres through this field only to find another fence cutting right through the middle of the land, with a ten metre break in it for no apparent reason. I kept going.

60 metres from the hash and I was regretting my choice of footwear when I nearly fell into a ditch.

20 metres from the hash and I was wishing I brought a fucking torch, when I got my foot snagged on a piece of wire or something and nearly lost a sandal.

4 metres past the hash, I did a bee dance and couldn't get any closer, so I snapped a photo and started on the way home. It was 23:40 or so and cloudy, there was nothing to see. (I just realised the exif data is funky, it's off by an hour for some reason.)

Total time elapsed: 0:30
Total distance traveled: 14km
