What a bounty of Hashes Auckland has had of recent! I will drive up there after work as its not too far past my house on SH1. The hash is in someones house, so will get to the road edge atleast.

[edit] Expedition

Well, exciting lab results kept me at uni way longer than I expected. As time was passing by I was thinking secretly that maybe I could get there in time for a sunset hash, combined with a lovely, romantic, sunset walk along the beach with myself, on a clear, winter, Auckland, non raining evening. Sadly wasn't to be the case, Auckland's traffic intervened and Green got her first introduction to dark time hashing. Well aside from it being rather boring, its notoriously difficult to photograph, well anything. Street Signs, GPS screens, and there's the fact that you look very dodgy milling around the front of someone's property. I was busted instantly on pulling up outside the house by someone looking out the window, so I had to drive down the road, do a 'u'ey and stroll back up on foot. I was dead scared id be confronted that I only just made it to outside number 69 De Luen Avenue, and stayed only long enough to take a quick snap shot of the GPS. On that note, whats this 37 m accuracy crap, that makes me want to throw the thing away - maybe it needs calibration?

So, the most exciting thing about this hash, that it actually landed on land, take a look at the map!
