In a forest near Yoncalla, Oregon.



We decided to try to hit this hashpoint in the early morning so that Frogman could get back by noon to eat brunch with his grandma.


After a pleasant one-and-a-half hour drive, we found ourselves in the quaint community of Yoncalla, Oregon. We drove through town and out onto a county road looking for our turn-off. It turns out Google Maps has some road names incorrect, as we first went up what was actually Whipple Tree Road, hitting a dead end, before going up what Google Maps thought was Whipple Tree Road, which turned out to be someone's driveway.

Right after we stopped driving to continue on foot, the property owner drove up behind us and asked us what we were doing. After explaining our purpose and saying that we thought we were on public road, he politely asked us to leave. We tried to reach the hashpoint from another angle but it was entirely surrounded by private property. Oh, well!




Frogman, Higgs, Scott earned the No trespassing consolation prize
by almost (400 meters) reaching the (43, -123) geohash on 2013-11-03.
