A house somewhere in Augusta, Michigan, not far from M-96.


Yvh11a was flying solo on this trip, it being already a late weekday afternoon when he realized that the hash was a mere five miles away.


The plans were to get on the bike, ride to the location, take some pictures with my shiny new camera phone, bike back. Easy peasy.


The ride started out fine, nice paved trails, perfect for my crappy bike. A slight headwind was compensated by the downhill slope, and soon I found myself rolling into Augusta. The first street I took was, as it turns out, the wrong one, and I was forced to pull out my phone to refer to Google Maps (so much for the no batteries achievement, oh well). Got myself straightened out, and a few short minutes later was curbside in front of the house in question. I was going to snap a picture and then head off when I saw a vehicle pulling into the very driveway I was sitting next to. Discretion and epicness did battle in my brain, and extroversion won out. I waited until the driver noticed me and asked if I needed anything. I explained that I was from the internet, and asked if it was all right to take a picture. Unfortunately, they decided that would be a bit weird, so I thanked them for their time, hopped back on my bike, and departed.
