[edit] Plans

We had a few hours to kill before baking, and the hash today happened to be within reach.

[edit] Expedition

We began by loading up on soda at QT, as we knew that it would be our last chance before leaving civilization to venture into BFE. We had an hour and a half drive ahead of us (according to Google Maps) and a short walk off of the road. Or, so we thought.

Our first setback came with the realization that many of the streets were poorly labeled, if at all. However, after three hours, many U-turns and hunting for cellular signal to get directions, we found our way to Co Rd 431. The hash was within sight, but on private property. Being respectful, we trekked to the nearest house in seek of permission to trespass. Despite obvious signs that someone was home, they refused to answer the door. Taking their lack of concern as permission, we trudged through the mud- carefully avoiding the rows of crops- halfway into the field and right to the hash.

We couldn't manage to get the GPS to display the last decimal places correctly, but we reached the hash and managed a pair of achievements!
