On Almond Drive in a still-being-built neighborhood near Clackamas High School.
Frogman (talk): I planned to get Alison and my friend Chris, but neither of them could come. In the process of coordinating the expedition, I asked Dmitriy and Bobby if they wanted to come, and they were able and willing.
I went before work, because I could. "Nothing much to see here, folks," as the police say in the pulps. The part I liked is that the neighborhood is only about 2/3 built, so while many homes are clearly lived in, there was also a constant rattle of hammering, sawing, concrete grinding, drywall installation, and landscaping echoing through the narrow spaces between the big new houses.
I didn't leave any artifacts, because the hashpoint is in somebody's driveway.
It was about 8:30 when we left Troutdale and pretty dark. We thought we got lost on the way there but it turned out we actually were going the correct way. The hashpoint was a fairly uninteresting sidewalk, which we loudly discussed and probably annoyed the locals before heading back into town. We went to KFC on the way home and had apple crisps.
