No plans; luckily was in the area

[edit] Expedition

I was in the area and checked my phone at the opening bell; to my surprise, I was ~10 miles from the 39,-83 hash point and had time.

When I arrived, I was very hopeful for a Frozen Hash Achievement (25F/ -4C); my hopes started failing when I walked up to the fence. "No problem" I thought, "the point is just on the other side."

Unfortunately, I was wrong: when I walked around the fence, I found I was making a nice box around the point. I've dealt with electrical power to know jumping the fence was a very bad idea. So I took pics and headed back to my car.

Speaking of pics:
