[edit] Plans

Considering the ease of the location and the fact that the hashpoint was forecast on several days in advance, I decided to use the opportunity to pick up a few bonus achievements, such as Speed Racer, Tron and No Batteries. Unfortunately, Nofu was not in the area, so he could not partake in the gratuitous ribbon-getting.

I planned out my route of attack beforehand on Google Maps (Fig. 1), wrote it in my water-logged red notebook, scanned the hashpoint on Google Streetview, and set out.

[edit] Expedition

Everything went exactly as planned. Got to see some of Thomas More College on the way. The half-hour drive actually made for a nice study break.
