[edit] Expedition

Leaving Herefordshire, it was clear I couldn't make the 52,-0 meetup in time, so I headed east towards Banbury for this hash. It was a gorgeous drive across the beautiful English countryside and I was now in no hurry. This is why I keep coming back to England. And was Jerusalem builded here?

I parked at a severe angle on the hill and found a public footpath toward the hashpoint. It led to a field containing two (2) friendly hash-horses. I needed the next field along. I walked the entire edge of the field and found no way through except for one corner, where there was a gap, but a temporarily erected electric fence blocked access. Figuring the farmer must just be ignoring my statutory right of way, I ducked under the fence and into the next field. Dodging large lumps of dried hash-poo, I reached the far corner and the hashpoint.

My camera was almost completely dead at this point so there are only a few photos. I was so hungry I almost ate rabbitfox, but fortunately I found some hashberries on the way back to the car.

Of possible interest to other geohashers, I discovered that if you park your hash-car at a cute angle, the tank will miraculously fill up with hash-fuel. It's magical hash-fuel though, and it only lasts around half an hour before evaporating.

My two day circular hash tour complete, I headed back to Surrey.
