[edit] Location

In the middle of a cul-de-sac in Brookfield, WI

[edit] Participants

  • RocketMac - I'll be in the area for coffee with my wife in the morning

[edit] Plans

After our morning coffee break, I'll make a drive from there through the hashpoint and back to Alterra for the TRON Achievement!

[edit] Expedition

Life got in the way of making the round trip at coffee time. A friend of my wife's family passed away the other day and today was the funeral. We got all dressed up only to see anywhere from 1/3 to 2/3 of the guests dressed in Packers gear. Turns out the deceased had been dying of cancer over six months and had asked for the attire. We just missed the memo.

This left me with another achievement opportunity: Formal Attire Achievement

The hashpoint was in a street, and I wasn't going to be getting out of the car, so I had my wife take a picture of my dressed up after I got back. The trip itself was pretty uneventful. Right near my final turn into the neighborhood, I realized my route would void my TRON attempt, so I pulled over at the spot to take a picture of the area, take the "Stupid Grin" shot, and plan a new route.
