[edit] Location

The hash itself was in the middle of a cranberry bog ~10m away from the pumping station.

  • Mischief was on this expedition.
  • P.K.
  • Joe "The Birthday Boy"

[edit] Expedition

I departed at 0930 sharp and went over to P.K.'s house to borrow the jeep, because anything is cooler than my Grand Marquis. After explaining the strange reason why I wanted to use the jeep P.K. loved the idea and wanted to come along for the ride. En route, we realized the hash was close to a friend of ours, Joe, and it just so happened to be his birthday. So after an ambiguous phone call we picked up Joe and told him that we were taking him on a birthday road trip.

We jeeped around the semi-rural area and ended up on a series of nameless dirt roads. After passing a paintball place we ended up in a cranberry bog where the hash was supposed to be. Ditching the jeep we went on foot and it turned out the hash was pretty much right on top of a pumping station that drains the bog for the growing season. After a successful hash we went and grabbed a birthday lunch at a local pizza shop and I got a ride home in the birthday boy's Mercedes.

Mission Success.

[edit] Tracklog

So I attempted to log my position using google maps, but I mucked that up. Still we definitely made it. Trust me.
