Show up to the hash, take some photos, mill about suspiciously, and maybe find some geosquishies nearby.

[edit] Expedition

After getting off work, Dedehawk and Bassoon were at a loss for things to do. After a routine check of the daily hashes, we noticed that the hash to the southern graticule was a pretty close hash, which was possibly in a field. As Google Maps isn't updated very often, and due to the pictures that implied construction, we assumed the worst: that someone had built a house on our hash. But we went out anyway, ever the hopeful optimists.

After getting food at Sonic in Waukesha, we followed I-94 to I-894 and got off. After driving by the hash, Bassoon turned the car around and tried to find somewhere suitable to park. We drove past a really nice park with a gazebo in it, but surely we could find a closer place to park, couldn't we?

Indeed we could. We pulled into a tiny subdivision with ridiculous street names like Balboa, South Pacific, West Pacific, and Magellan. Pulling off by the turn around, we parked and got out, ready to face tall grass and harsh trespassing laws to get to our hash. On the way out, we found a nifty ramp. This clearly doubled as a secret bike park.

We wandered farther into the wind-swept, tall grass. Eventually, we wandered into the hash. We took our obligatory group photo and made our way back to the car, making sure to jump off the ramp a few times first.

We found a Speedway shortly after for some squishies worth four stars!
