[edit] Location

A small patch of land off Greenfield road not far from a route from work to home.

[edit] Plans

My original plan was to stop there on my way to work. Then I enjoyed sleeping in too much. Then I planned to leave work right on time and make the stop on the way home.

It doesn't look to be very exciting, but I haven't had a reachable hashpoint in almost a month.

[edit] Expedition

I left work a little early and swung by a new geocache that was less than a quarter of a mile from work that the weather had kept me from.

After that I was on my way. Leaving work just those fifteen minutes early put me between a couple of rush times and I flew to the hash.

...and then past it. ...then back. Okay.

The odd item on the map turned out to be a driveway to nowhere. It looked like the land had been originally set for a house. It had a driveway that ended in gravel and then grass. I pulled into it and the hash was just feet away. It was just starting to drizzle as I got back in my car.

When I had turned around after driving past, I pulled up near a gas station. I could see it from the hashpoint, so I made a mental note to see if they had a squishy machine. So after the hash, I needed to go that way anyway, so I stopped. They DID!

I picked up a slushy and snapped some shots in the now rain and I was back on my way home.

An easy hash with a squishy stop? I'll take it.
