In some woods about 500 ft off Windsor drive in King George Virginia
I hope to leave Rockville around 12:30 pm and get there around 2. Then head up a different way to pick up Allison, and from there go to the Cumberland MD geohash for today.
I hope to earn the Tron achievement for today's expeditions.
So I set out from Rockville thinking it would be a 1h20m ride and it was not. There is terrible traffic in Waldorf. Someone at a gas station said it's like that every weekend since they installed a couple of traffic lights for a shopping center. Sure enough, once I passed those lights, traffic was fine.
Anyway I took Rt 301 and crossed the Potomac. Saw some huge chimneys, like a power plant or something but I also noticed some big pipes extending out to some docks, so maybe it's an oil depot or something.
Anyway getting to the spot was fairly straightforward, pulled off on the side of the road and went crashing into the underbrush. Got stuck with these thorny vines (they are everywhere in this area, have had to deal with them on every offroad expedition) and finally into the woods. I found a narrow track which led me part of the way there, then through the brush again.
I went back to my car and decided to drive on the narrow dirt track to see where it went. It ended near a swamp--I assume it's used infrequently by hunters.
Left and headed to pick up Allison for the Cumberland, MD hashpoint expedition.
