[edit] Plans

I thought there were no feasible (for me) hashpoints this weekend, but apparently, I forgot to look at Monday. I'm already in Portland to donate blood, so I'm going to go swing by and try for this one.


[edit] Expedition

I went by, but I didn't quite make it by four, despite what Google Maps told me.

I never found the correct turn off the Capital Highway, but I followed my GPS, and finally got there.

My GPS was suddenly having trouble staying locked on the signal. I was 60 feet away and it would point in one direction, and then completely spin around. It was in a urban area, so there wasn't a lot of overhead trees to explain this. I finally was going to ask permission to enter a backyard, but it hit 21 feet upon entering the driveway, so I decided to take a picture and declare it a success.
