Head to the hashpoint after the Farmer's Market.

[edit] Expedition

I looked at the hashpoint and decided it was pretty close by and was worth a try.

However, as usual, I had the Farmer's market, but it only served to get me closer to the hashpoint. As I was heading towards the hashpoint, I realized that I had a friend who lived in the area. I hadn't seen him in a while, so I touched base with him, thinking I might get a Drag-along achievement in addition to simply having someone else to journey with, which is nice. (There was a young child involved, which often can increase interest in an "adventure") We visited for a while, but no one else was interested in heading to the hashpoint, so I was on my own.

I set out, and wandered for a while in the small roads of this built up area, but didn't find the "short" way to the hashpoint. I ended up backtracking to Hwy 210 and then trying again, which worked better.

The side roads got smaller and smaller as I got closer to the hashpoint, making turning around a bit of a challange. However, as expected, the hashpoint was on private land and I wasn't feeling social enough to try for an Ambassador achievement, so I settled for a No trespassing consolation prize.

Getting to visit with my friend was nice, and the area was pretty. I think I got some nice photos, but I need to get them uploaded. Of course, for me, the photos always look nicer in my eye than in the camera. I'm probably just not a very good photographer.
