On the bank of the snake river, just south of Ontario, OR.



When I saw that today's coordinates were in the very tiny bit of Oregon in this graticule, I had to try for this one. I called up a friend and invited him to come along. He agreed, so I stopped by his home to pick him up on my way out to the hash. It was a pleasant drive out to the vicinity of the hashpoint. However, when we were very nearly there, we found a bridge with a sign saying 'Private No Trespassing' It turns out the hashpoint was actually on the bank of a small island in the river. And unfortunately, this bridge was the only way to access it. Disappointed, we drove back in to Ontario and found a Chinese resturant where we had dinner before heading back for home.



Eldin earned the No trespassing consolation prize
by almost reaching the (43, -116) geohash on 2013-10-16.
