[edit] Location

A little bit off a logging road in the Tillamook forest

[edit] Plans

Boy, this one looks tempting. It is a bit off a logging road(?), but the logging road itself it right off Hwy 6. There is just the 37 miles of weaving highway between me and the logging road...  :-(

The Tillamook forest does seem to attract potential multihashes: See this one which is 4 miles down the highway.


[edit] Expedition

Well, I set out for this one, believing that despite the presence of the forest, it would be accessible. It was a fairly long trip, but it was a fairly nice day, and it was nicer in the daytime, as opposed to at night, as it was the last time.

I missed the side road the first time, and went past the previous hashpoint, then turned back to get to the side road. I found it, or rather the other end of the side road, and eventually found the road that had the hashpoint. And it was only 120 feet from the road to the hashpoint.

Except that the land on the side of the road was almost vertical. So the horizontal 120 feet was going to be a bit longer. And the vertical slope turned me off on the whole attempt.

So, Mother Nature won. I turned around and headed to the Portland hashpoint, hoping for better luck.


[edit] Photos

I have some more images, except my camera had gotten flipped over into "Movie" mode and recorded video instead of still images. I have to figure out how to extract a single image from the video.
