[edit] Plans

  • Looks worthy of a No Batteries attempt for me. The hash appears to be in the middle of a tree near a sidewalk. Won't be able to do a meetup, however, due to a prior commitment. - Spindizzy 13:43, 12 October 2011
  • Wow, really? That's less than a mile from where I work. Be there around 5PM. -- Jevanyn @40.6886,-74.3162 13:00, 12 October 2011 (EDT)

[edit] Expedition

Spindizzy: Drove to this location and arrived around 3:30 pm DST. Mountain Avenue is very busy with "No Standing" signs so I parked on a side street. Not wanting to look too conspicuous, I took a couple of photos - walking up to the hash and one from across the street, where there was a memorial park where I took some photos. There was a crossing guard to get across the street and I did not want to look suspicious.

Sorry, no photos of me - camera is a hand-held and difficult to self-portrait.
