[edit] Location

A field of corn and beans near Hwy 26 in North Plains, Oregon. Right near a glider port.

[edit] Plans

I was going to go there after work. I did print out the Google Maps page and program my GPS.

[edit] Expedition

Getting most of the way to the hashpoint proved pretty easy, especially since I'd been to the same area about a week earlier. The field proved to be close to an airfield, which I think is really a glider port. No one was flying when I went by, but in my attempts to find someone to give me permission to enter the field, I did cross the end of the runway.

The hashpoint proved to be about 100 feet off the roadway, which put it quite a few rows into a field of either peas or beans. (It looked like some kind of legume, anyway.) I couldn't find anyone nearby who owned the field, so I couldn't get permission to travel into it. No one would probably have known or cared as long as I didn't trample their plants, but it's against the spirit of the game.

So, I took my "No Trespassing" ribbon and went home.
