[edit] Plans

Right on the highway on the way to town. Drive there, scope it on the way in, do errands, come back, stop and find exact spot.

[edit] Expedition

Thought about it. No-brainer, felt guilty about another highway point but we get so few that are even reachable, couldn't pass it up. Took a bath. Then got excited about taking care of my chickens and spent an hour on that and got filthy and had to change. Then finally off but had to detour to the Dunster General Store to get provisions for child.

Finally off to town. Scoped the spot on my way in to McBride (yes, that is where it should be), went on and did errands (wasn't planning to go today but there is always something to do), and stopped on the way back since the spot was on that side of the highway. Wandered a bit off (see tracklog) to get my bearings, then found it. Kept expecting someone I knew (or a complete stranger) to stop and ask why I was pulled over on the side of the road in such a random spot, but nobody did. Took obligatory picture (not of me this time, those get boring fast) and then drove home.

[edit] Tracklog

These work better for me than pictures of the stupid GPS, which never seem to turn out: [1]
