[edit] Expedition

We set out to make the hash point around 3:30. According to Google, we had about an hour drive ahead of us, so we made sure that we had some sweet tunes for the trip. We ran into a detour about halfway, and while I was yelling at Jessi to slow down so I could get a picture of the sign, we missed the turn. People looked at us like we were crazy. After a bit more driving we turned off the main highway and were soon driving on gravel roads back to the field containing the hash.

When we arrived, we walked out to the point and, after setting up our picnic blanket, took the necessary photographs. We enjoyed some triscuits and vodka-soaked pineapple before leaving. On the way back, we stopped to say hello to some horses and to play on a tree that was falling over. All in all, it was a pretty successful first expedition.
