[edit] Expedition

Hoping for a favorable hashpoint in the area, we checked on Monday morning to find the hash just a mile and a half from BigBrother5000's house. After consulting several maps, we drove about a half-mile to the beginning of a trail system -- driving a half-mile sounding more than a little frivilous, but more understandable if you know the kind of terrain that Ashland is built on.

A mile or so of trail walking brought us within 450 feet of the point. From there, it was a bit of a scramble up a steep slope of dry forest, dodging poison oak and admiring the great madrona trees. We reached the hashpoint without a great deal of trouble or fanfare. We took a few photos, and our minds turned to breakfast.
