Plans[edit]

Leave work after lunch (hooray for summer hours on friday!) and drive south on I-5 towards Wilsonville. Take SW Montgomery road all the way to the end, park and hike through the forest to the geohash.

Expedition[edit]

Hopped on 26 east around 1300, took 217 south to I-5 south and got off at exit 286. This ended up being a slightly different route, than I had planned. I would approach the geohash from the north, via SW 60th avenue. This ended up being a pretty interesting route. 60th Ave. started off as a regular road, then became a gravel road, and eventually became not a road at all, but just a grass path with tire tracks lined by blackberry bushes. I drove down this bumpy, overgrown non-road for about half of a mile before I came the to end. I got out of the car and poked around in the brush, but the forest seemed largely unpassable. I was only able to get within about 600 feet of the Geohash. At this point I turned around and left, figuring that the forest approach via Montgomery Way would also not be hikable, at least not without a machete to clear the brush out of the way.
