Plot of farmland just outside of North Crane, Indiana.



We planned to leave from Cary at noon, drive to the location, ask the property owner if we can go onto their land, and complete the expedition.


We left campus around 12:30 PM. Went across the consistently-swelled Wabash River, through downtown Lafayette, and further east. We passed classic Lafayette landmarks such as Alcoa, the Tippecanoe Mall, and Tate & Lyle. As we got closer, we missed a turn and had to stop and turn around. Finally, we reached the farmland where the hash was.

We pulled to the side of the road and debated whether or not to ask the property owner if we could go on his land for 10 minutes. We ended up going for it, and the explanation went surprisingly well. I took some pictures and screenshots, and we piled back into the car and went home, stopping at Speedway on the way back.

All in all, it was just the perfect distance for breaking our hash-cherries and went off without a hitch, and we all had lots of fun.

Looking back in May of 2014, it was windy and almost rained, and I don't really think my friends enjoyed it.
