In National Forest Land east of Chiloquin, Oregon.
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.
