They got there, I was told.
And they were quite adamant on the fact that there must have been somebody else going for the hash as there was quite a lot of grass trampling that couldn't have had any other reason to be there. Mampfred is thinking: aliens?

[edit] Draradech

As I already had something planned this afternoon, I did go hashing early. Sorry Mampfred, no aliens.
I had planned to go juggernaut on the way to the hash, and take a curve back, to get the tron achievement as well. That didn't last long, 2 minutes in, I already had botched the tron requirements:

Oh well, so concentrate on the juggernaut, then. I already knew it would be kind of a close call to cross the B40:

Directly after the bridge, the way leads on, but is off limits, if I want to get the juggernaut (red line is 5% deviation from straight line):

So I'll have to climb down the more direct route (green arrow).

Wait. What?! Why did I climb down the left side again???
From there on it was just zig-zagging my way up to the hash:
