In a field near Carlsbad State Beach.
I started off the morning checking for an accessible point and was pleased to discover via Street View that the point not only fell on land, but that the field it was in contained a sign that indicated it was public property. I planned to drive to the hash after dropping D* at school. Since A' is not attending school he has to accompany me. We count the time spent walking as P.E. time.
I was hoping that I could do a Tron achievement without much planning but blew it because there was no parking on the street next to the field. That led me to crossing my path to find a parking space. We entered the field and found the spot pretty easily. There had been some fog on the way, but it was burning off pretty quickly. Once we snapped our photos and returned to the car we were able to locate a nearby geocache, but not so close to earn the Hash Collision achievement.
LucasBrown's expedition's tracklog is at https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msa=0&msid=210599911669164566506.0004cacb5dc39e5a89665. Due to a paucity of parking space near the hashpoint, obtaining the Tron achievement required a parking space of questionable legality (it wasn't marked for parking and just a little to close to moving traffic for comfort), hopping a fence, and entering the car after the hashpoint from the opposite side from which it was exited.
