Expedition[edit]

Best chance in more than a year to pick up one more Minesweeper graticule: in the correct corner, it's Saturday, it's on public land and looks accessible, there's a car and an excuse (driving practice) available, and the calendar is not too full. But we can't start before 1 pm because of other commitments, Katja has to be at work at 4, and the hashpoint is 65 km away and involves a walk through woods; time's a little tight.

Left home 1:15, parked car on forest road at 2:10, located hashpoint at 2:23 after short walk through reasonably open woods, returned to car at 2:35, home at 3:30: success!

We're issuing a Tale of Two Hashes challenge for places named Portland; this one oughta be easy, right?
