Just south of the Cascade Station area, near Portland International Airport.


  • ...and his puppet Kate!



I'm heading into Portland today, and the hash is in an undeveloped lot just South of IKEA. See ya there, maybe.

I plan to stop in at about 13:00, will look for Michael5000's mark. kydlt



I took a quick sidetrip off the freeway and approached the hashpoint from Airport Way. After being blocked by a hotel fence and the MAX line, I parked in a dodgy fashion on Mt. St. Helens Avenue and tried to look official as I went across the mown vacant field to the hashpoint. I placed evidence of my passing in a nearby weed.


Michael5000 jokingly suggested to Kate, a civilian in this business, that it would be a hoot if she were to visit the hashpoint. To his surprise, she did. Results: "I'm calling this one 'close enough'. Discovered some key ingredients were missing from this venture -- a GPS that lets you put in the EXACT coordinates and closed toe shoes. Ouch."

Michael5000 earned the Puppet Master Geohash achievement
by manipulating Kate to reach the (45, -122) geohash on 2011-09-01.


I stopped in on my way to the trainstation. Was short of time so I and the lovely other Kate rushed over and back out. She made some comment about no tevas next time. Took photo of Michael5000's artifact, left one of my own.
