A house in Lake Oswego
Head to the hash point after the Farmer's market
My original plan was to head directly to the hashpoint from the Market, but when I thought about the schedule, I decided I better run my errand in Portland first, then head south to the hashpoint.
The only problem was that my printed directions went in the other direction, so I ended up looping around quite a bit trying to get the to sync up after I finished my errand in Portland. I also discovered that the batteries in the GPS had given up, and my spare set weren't much better. I ended up stealing the batteries from the camera to run the GPS.
I finally made it to the hashpoint, and headed to the house which was up the hill, which I thought was closer to the hashpoint. It appeared to be 80 feet towards the back of the house from the front of the garage, so I put on my most friendly ambassador face and knocked on the door. No answer.
I waited a bit, and gave up.
As I headed back to the car, I thought for a bit and realized that maybe the downslope house might be close enough from its backyard, so I headed there. As I headed up the driveway, I saw the same 130 feet I saw from the other house. I knocked on the door, but got no answer, but as I was going to give up, I looked at the GPS. 32 feet! I'd made it at the door. I did a little GPS dance and it stayed in that range, so I'm going to declare it a success.
