[edit] Hic Sunt Laganum

Checking the hash for day the resulted in seeing the magical double tag on the map. Since I was already done with my shift for the day I had time to prep up a change of clothes and hiking boots for Red Velvet as we would have to trek into deep woods for this and the drive would place us there just at sunset. There was no moon today and we were hiking into unknown forest at dusk meaning it was very dark and we would be lacking landmarks to follow, we were forced to make several detours around extremely dense vegetation. Much of the terrain that wasn't brambles was waist high grass.

We kept tramping around the woods, spiraling ever close to the point until we finally arrived at the point, the foliage was quite dense and our usual GPS accuracy of 8ft was reduced to 12ft in this terrain. Not much else to say about it at the moment except we totally rocked a globalhash.
