In some poor person's front yard, up in Saanichton




No plans ahead of time - got to work, found that the hash was perhaps 10 minutes away, and went.


Hopped in my car, drove to the easy launching point. Jumped out, and walked the 10 minutes to find myself in somebody's front yard, the GPS telling me that I want to be directly underneath the tin awning they had. I needed to stand just outside to get the GPS coords, but I promise I was there. ;)
The problem was that it was somebody's front yard... awkward... and some poor kid wandered out as I was leaving, and didn't come over, so I continued walking away. As I got farther, he and his mom drove by, giving me the strangest looks... oops. Are there any awards for freaking out the locals?
