Location looks easy, on dirt trail close to a paved road a few miles north of DeFuniak Springs, FL. May be gated but if not posted will be an easy walk to the hash. Powertool recruited Bos for the expedition. Posted notice of the adventure on the Crestview, Florida geohash page.
Nice easy meet up again. :) I wish we more meet up locations that are as easy as the last couple :) This location looks like it is being turned into an impromptu dump. This graticule has a lot of undeveloped areas, most of the Eglin range (which adds complications in getting to some locations, some are in super restricted areas(you don't even try for those)), and a lot of water.
Rendezvoused at customary rally point, Niceville Tropical Smoothie, as planned. Met Christine there and dragged her along for the geohash. As has become customary, stopped to plunder a geocache on the way. Christine spotted the cache while Bos and Powertool were obsessing over the GPS which insisted we go farther east. Arrived to find the dirt trail to the hash open and easily drivable. Reached the hash site just a few minutes late to be greeted by no hashers but a good bit of trash. No wonder owners around here fence, gate and post their land. Hauled out a monster bag of trash but left a good bit so late arriving geohashers would not feel cheated, besides there was way too much for the potato wagon to haul out. Scratched the usual xkcd sign in the clay and pressed on to another benchmark recovery mission.
Good expedition. Completed this time without bleeding at all. Enjoyed by all including Christine but we missed the Liberian.
