Participants[edit]

Expedition 1[edit]

Expedition 2[edit]

Plans[edit]

  • Get in my car.
  • Drive to the nearby logging road.
  • Figure out how to get to the hash point from the road.

Expedition[edit]

Expedition 1[edit]

Cell coverage stopped completely about 10 miles from the hash point. Since I didn't have a backup navigation scheme, I turned around and came home.

Expedition 2[edit]

The road itself was blocked by a gate, but signs only indicated a restriction to vehicle access, saying nothing about pedestrians. We continued on foot up a steep gravel hill, and were able to get within 40 meters of the hashpoint. Unfortunately, the entirety of the area around the hashpoint was covered in blackberry bushes, and since it was already pretty late and we didn't have a machete or anything we decided to head back.
