[edit] Plans

Since this was close to home I decided to try to get there today, in spite of the snow. The fact that it was a drive way gave me hope that they might have it plowed, which would make it a little easier to access than the past few days, which were in the middle of a field.

[edit] Expedition

I drove almost straight to the location, to find a driveway cleared enough for me to drive on it. I drove up the drive only to find that it was only partially plowed. The plowing stopped at the house, while the point was further back, behind a barn. I got out of the car, to be greeted by a friendly chocolate German Pinscher (too bad there isn't a Hashdog achievement instead of the Hashcat achievement!) I decided before tramping through their yard, to knock on the door and see if anyone was home. No one answered and I almost chickened out, but decided to go for it and hope they didn't come home while I was wandering around. I discovered an old, yellow school bus. When I got to the point, I took some pictures, then got out of there as quickly as I could before someone saw me!


On my way home, I placed a Geocache and grabbed another cache that I had tried before, but didn't get because the coordinates were off.
