[edit] Location

In a small lake/pond at Riverside Park in Beloit, Wisconsin. Luckily it's mere feet from a dock.

[edit] Plans

I'm heading home to Milwaukee from St. Louis where I've been working this week. This will be one of two hashpoints I can reach on the way home.

[edit] Expedition

By the time I arrived it was dark. I was constantly scanning for that moment when a police car comes in and asks why I'm in a cold, snow-covered park on pier.

I quickly made my way to the pier and got myself positioned about 9ft from the hash. Snapped a few pictures and headed over to the first cache of the night.

The next one, a virtual cache required moving the car and finding a new parking spot and then still walking to it.

Now it's cold and I'm tired and I still have over an hour to go to get home.

My GPS tracklog is available in GPX and KMZ formats.
