Rossburg, NY on the shoulder of W. River Road



Had the car to go to the Dentist after work to fix a filling and thought: why not drive across the graticule for an easy to reach hash on the way back.

Dentist was very quick, I think I was in the chair a whole 15 minutes. After that, I stopped at a local coffee chain for a sandwich and started my drive to Rossburg around 18:30 or so. No trouble finding the way, but there were a few interesting moments when I crested a hill to find a curve in the road. I think it would have been a more enjoyable drive had it not been dark. Unless it's a needed hash, I won't be doing much of these kinds of hash trips in the dark anymore.

Anyway, I found the road and the driveway by the hash and pulled over. I was a little too far so I backed up where I got a reading of 8 feet. I could have reached across the car because the hash was on the passenger side, but I needed the light to take a picture (also, I didn't think of it at the time).

Turning around and passing the driveway, I saw I was the closest yet to a hash-kitty as there were three hanging out in the driveway, silhouetted by a house light. But as I never left the car, it's a moot point.

The drive home was mostly uneventful, but I did have to avoid hitting a skunk and I saw another on the side of the road at another point.
