[edit] Plans

On friday, we (Mampfred and Rincewind) noticed that the saturday and sunday hashes are quite close. We'd done consecutives before by going to one hash around 10pm and heading on to the next one for a midnight achievement, so we both planned for different graticules (Rincewind went for this one).

On saturday, Mampfred had a chat with Quartercacher and was up for it as well and would bring M along as well.

[edit] Expedition

Later that night, LadyBB decided to join us as well (Mampfred has decided to call her LadyCC from now on for completely crazy, she's less than two weeks away from welcoming MJ). We met at 9:30pm and went for a 40 minute drive to the first hash.

Found a little parking lot in the woods quite close to the hash. Fortunately QuarterCacher has very detailed hiking maps on his GPS so we were able to use proper paths for most of the way. It had been raining all day but thankfully there was only a light drizzle left and being in the woods not much of that actually reached us. It's an amazing experience every time if you're walking through the woods in pitch black with a couple of torches. From the path the hash was a mere 40 meters into the woods. Time of arrival was 10:36pm. We grabbed a couple of screenshots and took a stupid grin photo and headed back to the car for the second hash of the night ...
