In the backyard of a house on Bachelor Blvd in Beaverton, Oregon.



Print out a google map, program a GPS, try to convince the county GIS system to tell me ANYTHING about it.


Turns out the property is over the county line, which is why Washington County wouldn't tell me anything about it.

I visited several houses on my way to the final location. The first house wasn't interested in talking with me, so I headed off, but stopped to talk to some neighbors who were talking in the street, enjoying the good weather. They were friendly after I explained what I was doing, and assured them I wasn't a revenuer or census-taker. They directed me to an adjacent road, which proved to be the right one. While I was on the upper hill, I took a few pictures of the mountains.

The road was twisting around a lot, so it took two more stops to find the property that had the actual hashpoint. I explained what I was doing and the owner told me that sounded "pretty weird" and made it clear he wasn't interested in my visiting the backyard. I didn't have much of a defense on that assessment, so I headed home.

It was a nice scenic trip, and I got to pick up some eggs at a local farm.
