Expedition[edit]

This hash was very close to the Tron Hash I did on 2015-08-13. I could have done a Tron here too as I had access to the same field, but I wanted to stop and eat on the way home so that was out. There was a geocache in the woods by the school fields which made it another Hash-Collision honorable mention as well.

After work I watered the garden as it's been pretty dry around here lately. I got the dogs set up in the house and grabbed my fixed-gear and rode off to the hash. With experience from previous hashes, I knew when to expect my turns and made it with no trouble to the hash. I stopped in the neighboring driveway just off the sidewalk and as I stopped, my GPS read 0.00 feet to go, but by the time I got my camera ready, it climbed up slightly. Getting my pictures, I made a Left two houses up to ride into the field by the school. Normally, (according to the geocache page) it's pretty damp back there, but without much rain, I was actually able to ride my bike almost right to the cache. It was like fixed gear cyclocross (definitely not recommended IRL) for a minute there.

Finding the VERY pink cache, I signed and took some more pictures for the hash collision ribbon and cruised out by the school and off to dinner. I rode down a pretty busy road to La Tolteca (clearly a Mexican place) where I had a beer and Quesadillas. Looking for a quieter route home, I hit a less busy road going by ECC (community college) where I stopped to find another cache that has been sitting in my GPS for a long time. Unfortunately, I believe it was IN the lamp post, and I had neither the tools nor the desire to open it so I moved on.

Moseying on, I passed a cemetery and decided since I was on an easy going tour of town, I'd swing in and ride through. It was a newer cemetery without a really old section, but was still very nice. There was a large pond too with a family feeding the fish within as I rode by.

All in all, it was a very enjoyable expedition.
