It appears to be in a field West of Lafayette/West Lafayette, near the Wabash River.

This is our first hash, and I guess the general plan is to just drive as close as we can to it and walk the rest!


Well it seemed to be going well enough. We parked probably about a mile away because we felt like hiking a bit, then we walked for a while along a gravel/dirt road. Unfortunately we came to a closed gate-it didn't have a lock on it but our presence seemed to be distracting the cows, who we think thought we were going to feed them. We had no interest in fending off hungry cows in a field we probably weren't supposed to be in, so we turned back and went on some more adventures around the Lafayette area. Pictures to come!



Strictly speaking, there was no sign saying "No Trespassing", but the fence seemed to imply that. And the cows.

StatMan22 and Buttercup earned the No trespassing consolation prize
by almost reaching the (40, -86) geohash on 2013-01-12.
