[edit] Plans

Since all the hashes came out on Thursday morning, I was looking around for the feasibility of a New Years hash. Then I thought some more...how about a TRUE New Year's hash. We were partying with the family, but knew that wasn't going to go to midnight. The hash was relatively close and accessible enough that it might *just* work for a nighttime deal. I drove up in the car earlier in the day to scout it out just in case. Snow. Hmmmm. Better take the SUV tonight.

[edit] Expedition

So things didn't start off terribly well. The New Years party we went to was going well and it was 10 before I even realized it. I knew I'd need to get headed to the hash by around 11, and it was 10:30 before we finally got everything collected and headed home. I had to help get the VERY TIRED boys to bed, then headed out the door right at 11. The drive out went fine, but I was worried because I'd been in the car earlier and hadn't been able to truly scout out the road on the final mile to the hash. I got to the turnoff and the SUV did just fine on the 4-6" or so of snow. I got out to less than 2/10 of a mile to the hash and parked. I had to throw on the gaiters and snow traction over my boots--glad I had *both* of those once I got walking--then I headed out in the snow. It was cold night, around 20 deg, and the clouds had rolled in a bit, but because of the blue moon (2nd full moon in the month) it was plenty bright out. The only noise was the occasional passing of a vehicle on the highway a mile away. I trudged the short distance over to the hash and made it there at three minutes to midnight. Happy Hashing New Years! Good thing I didn't have to wait too long, cuz it was chilly standing there. Back to the car, back to the highway, back to my waiting bed. Yay!
