[edit] Plans

I was going to be in town for the day, and planned to detour to the hashpoint on my way back out.

[edit] Expedition

As I headed out to the hashpoint it was pouring, which wasn't promising. I drove into the neighborhood--which was, as it originally appeared to be--a subdivision still under construction. It was actually a little eerie; the roads were all completed, with grand landscaping throughout and no signs of construction, but I saw maybe two houses total.

I drove by the point with another car behind me, and too little room on the road to pull over, so I looped around and parked on an intersecting road, then got out of my car and walked. The rain had let up a little and I had my umbrella (No Drowned Rat achievement for me, thankfully). The point turned out to be just off the sidewalk toward the woods; my app said I was as close to the point as it could accurately tell, but I tried to get as close as possible by the meter count, and ended up pushing into the woods a little bit while cars drove by behind me. (Don't mind me, I'm just poking around in the woods in a half-abandoned upscale subdivision here.)
