Off of the John H. Beuter Road in Peavy Arboretum.
I saw that this hash was pretty close to Corvallis, so I planned on doing it!
I was surprised at the relatively easy ride up 99W, despite a couple of hills. Peavy Arboretum is an OSU-run demonstration forest on a hill surrounded by farms and streets that are named after being able to see Mt. Hood. It's a nice place! It was pretty busy, so I felt weird about tromping through the forest in an attempt to reach the hashpoint. I felt even more weird about the fact that the hashpoint was right off of a path, and my wanderings through thickets and heavy vegetation were unnecessary.
So Frogman had introduced me to geohashing just days before and I thought it sounded really cool. So when he asked if I wanted to hit a bike hash on Sunday I was all for it. After stopping for a break about 2 miles in I realized I was way out of shape and I didn't know how far we were going. After Frogman mentioned how far away it was I realized I wasn't in the condition to keep up with him for 13+ more miles. And so goes the story of how I failed my first geohash.
