On a hill in Siuslaw National Forest.
After some deliberations on the state of the weather, we decided to attempt this geohash.
We drove out US Numbered Highway 20 towards Newport, but turned off on some side roads to get into the National Forest. Getting to the hashpoint itself was pretty easy, but wet; we hiked up the side of a hill and by the time we were done we were pretty wet and muddy. The area around the hashpoint was moderately forested and there were a lot of ferns.
Afterwards we went to Mo's, even though Newport was way out of our way. We sang songs and joked and it was a good time for all!
AlecS brought his new machete in case we needed to cut some plant-life. We didn't, but he defaced a tree anyway.
