Location[edit]

Off Gowdyville Road in the woods west of Cottage Grove.

Participants[edit]

Plans[edit]

Returning from the South Coast to Portland after the holidays, we noticed a potential hashpoint not too far off of the route, as long as "the route" meant crossing the Coast Range on the road from Reedsport to Drain. So obviously, we turned inland at Reedsport.

Expedition[edit]

Gowdyville Road turned to gravel, but took us to within about 200 feet of the hashpoint. We crunched through the underbrush to the "South Fork Siuslaw River," which this far up is nothing but a little creek with a fancy name. Michael waded across, while Mrs. and Niece #4 spent a little more time scouting and found a dry way to cross. A little more crashing through brush, and we were at the hashpoint!

A good time was had by all. We didn't realize until after the fact that this was the FIRST EVER SUCCESSFUL EXPEDITION to the Roseburg graticule. We just hope the glory doesn't go to Niece #4's head.
