[edit] Plans

Yeah, right... Found out early in the afternoon that an after-work appointment would be nearby, and that today's hash would be right near my appointment. Coincidence? :-)

[edit] Expedition

Easy enough to stop for a few minutes along the way. Found a reasonable parking lot at the end of a stretch of gravel road, and concrete paths off into the woods. Still distinct enough to follow on my Centro's Google Maps.

A while later, after some puddle jumping, I approached the foot bridge over the impending creek. Not planning on a long stop, I looked around for the best landmarks to photograph for the "unique enough to triangulate well" plan... The footbridge is the best, a nearby riverside gazebo the next best, and the third photo being the patch of loose waterlogged brush that _IS_ the hashpoint to within a couple of feet.

... and an uneventful hike back through the woods, into the truck, off into the sunset... or home, anyway.
