[edit] Location

Today's location is near the entrance to the Salt Creek Forest Preserve and Bemis Woods.

[edit] Plan

I'll probably be around the hashpoint around 4pm and then have a snack or read in the picnic area just north in the Preserve.

[edit] Expedition

This is the first time I had the chance to get my bicycle out for a ride since June. Not thinking, I waited until last minute to leave and ended up having to run back upstairs to grab the tire pump. I thought I was going to get there late, but ended up in the hashpoint's neighborhood about ten til 4 o'clock. I spent the meantime wandering around and taking pictures of street signs and an ice cream truck.

The hashpoint was in someone's backyard and I didn't have the nerve to ask for permission. I took a picture of it from the sidewalk though.

Afterwards, I headed north to the forest preserve. All the pavilions were teeming with people for reunions and picnics. I found a spot by a random building and had a peach at one of the park benches.
