[edit] Plans

Hash point is just off of my usual bike ride. Looks like a field (private property). Who knows, maybe something will work out.

[edit] Expedition

Val just happened to be out picking up trash along the road on the edge of a hay field. She also just happened to be the owner. So I asked if I could walk out onto her land. Not quite knowing what do say she asked why. A variant of the usual explanation sufficed. It probably helped that Val already knew about geocaching. So a short walk later, just 150m into the field, I was at the hash point.

I walked back to my bike via a slightly different route and pulled the bike forward so I wouldn't be getting on at the same place as I got off. Continuing on I modified my route so I would approach my house from the opposite end of the street to get a Tron achievement.

Thanks again Val!
