[edit] Expeditions

[edit] David Miller and Ryan's trip

This is the closest I could get to the hash point
Ryan being bored, while im talking to the manager

I took ryan on the 2:10pm bus to HolidayInn and headed to the hash point. I got there around 10 minutes later and headed into the HolidayInn hotel to ask for permission to look around the premises to find the hash point.

After the manager came out, I then proceeded to explain what I was doing there and asked for permission to walk around trying to find the hash point. Unfortunately the closest I was allowed to get to it was 15 meters due to health and safety concerns getting right to it!

Ryan got a little bored and sat down next to us as we were talking about it and while I grabbed a couple of pictures.

After leaving the manager, I then headed inside to the bar and grabbed a nice cold pint of Carlsberg and a drink of orange for Ryan. We stayed there for about 30 minutes and were playing about while waiting for the bus, which is hourly!

I was going to leave a marker like the last one ( XKCD in stones ), but due to the manager I wasnt allowed at directly at the hash point!
