In a Gales Creek, Oregon roadway, in a creek valley.



I printed out the Google map page and programmed the GPS.


I finally finished up at work, and decided I'd make a try for this hashpoint. It looked like it was off the road, but didn't appear to be too far off.

APR wasn't interested in driving country roads, so I went off by myself. The route was very scenic. I was thinking it would still be a little light by the time I got there, but I was mistaken as I headed into stream valleys and hills.

The road turned into gravel, and I glanced over as the GPS hit 74 feet, so I stopped, and walked over. The hashpoint was in the roadway, at least what my GPS could deduce through the tree cover. So, I took some pictures, and went up the road so I could pass through the hashpoint for a Speed Racer. I didn't bring a real camera, so I had to make do with my cellphone, which was less than perfect.

I didn't make too much noise and disturb the nearby house, though it looked uninhabited. I headed back home, trying out the "backtrack" function of my GPS.
