[edit] Expedition

From base camp at BigBrother5000's house in Ashland, we drove Oregon 140 and secondary roads over the mountains and north of Klamath Lake to Chiloquin, Oregon. Chiloquin Ridge Road, a well-maintained two-lane road, brought us to within about a third of a mile of the site. We had an easy hike up through sparse forest and sandy soil, and located the hashpoint without difficulty. Unfortunately, the nearest remarkable landmark was a large pile of household trash that someone must have discarded in the woods sometime in the past few years.

It being Michael5000's birthday, he opened his present from Mrs.5000 -- which turned out to be a fabulous piece of original art -- at the hashpoint.

This is assumed to be the first Expedition and the first successful Expedition of the Klamath Falls, Oregon, graticule.
