[edit] Plans

Leave right after work (5pm), drive through/by hashpoint and then go home.

[edit] Expedition

As we got close, we saw a Dairy Queen, so we grabbed some slushies for the GeoSquishy achievement. We came to a fork in the road, the right side had an open gate and the left side didnt. I went left, which was the wrong way, so we backed up and went through the gate.

As we passed through the gate, we noticed the No Trespassing sign, but since we already passed the gate, and the road was too narrow to turn around, and the hashpoint was just a few blocks ahead, we continued on. We passed the hashpoint, turned around in a driveway, took some pictures as we passed back by the hashpoint and then left (making sure to capture the No Trespassing sign).

The DQ was 8.4 km, so we didn't get the GeoSquishy achievement :(
