[edit] Location

Just off of Highway 67 outside of Osceola, Wisconsin.

[edit] Plans

After laser tagging, we'd all get in the car and make the trek to Osceola for some late-night (but pre-midnight) geohashing.

[edit] Expedition

We got in the car in Waukesha at about 9:00, then started the drive to Osceola. The GPS took us on a zany loop through Milwaukee all on the way to 45 North, which confused everyone. Either way, we were soon on the right track and had a really uneventful drive up to Osceola.

Kuderererer works up in this area. Bassoon didn't think we'd be passing his work, but lo and behold, we did. It was an odd occurrence, overall. Finally, we pulled over at the side of highway 67 to find the hash. Everyone left the car and followed Bassoon around in the inky darkness as he tried to find the hash. The Car's GPS had lied again. The hash was about 100 feet behind where the car was parked, blinkers flashing eerily in the darkness.

Once the hash was found, the usually photos were taken. Because it was dark, there really wasn't anything interesting to see. The hash wound up being on the road pavement, but in the margins of the road, like where bikes would be. Overall, a speed racer on a dark road at night by a curve seemed to dangerous, so we attempted to find an open gas station to try for squishie.

Fun Fact: all of the gas stations close at ridiculously early hours in Wisconsin. With the advent of the credit card and pay-at-the-pump technology, it has become apparent to convenience store owners that it's safer if the convenience store closes so there's no chance of a late-night robbery occurring. Thus, all of the convenience stores (and thus all of the squishy sources) close at 10 PM in Wisconsin.

Either way, we loaded everyone back into the car and made the way back home, stopping in West Bend for some food. Fun Fact: all of the fast food restaurants in Wisconsin also close at 10 PM! Who would've known?
