[edit] Location

The hashpoint was only a few meters off the North Carolina / South Carolina border. This allowed for a one shot Reverse regional achievement

[edit] Participants

Art was the only attendee.

[edit] Plans

Plan A was to park in the neighborhood to the Northwest of the hashpoint and then hike in. Plan B was to approach from the South

Radio communications are available on FRS channel 6

[edit] Expedition

When I reached the neighborhood and parked, the woods were extremely thick. Also, there was a dog that was very unhappy about my proximity to his property and was letting everyone else know it. Since I had an alternate plan available, I decided to try it. I had noticed some paths from the aerial views and decided to try for them. I parked in the visitor lot of what appeared to be some sort of electronics company and walked towards the border. The paths I had seen from the maps were right there and easily navigable. After a easy 15 minute walk, I arrived at the hashpoint and took some pictures, making sure to be within the 10 meter radius while standing on either side of the border.
