Location[edit]

In a field off School St in North Collins

Plans[edit]

The hash landed not too far away from my town so I will ride my bike to the hash-field. The streetviews are from 2011 but don't show any posted signs and the field that year looks like it was used for hay. As long as I don't find crops in the field(or posted signs) I should be able to get to the hash. I will also try to arrive for an official meetup time, although I don't expect anyone else to show up.

Expedition[edit]

It was a beautiful day for a bike ride (much like most of the summer has been) and I found my way with no trouble. However, as I approached the hash-field, I saw crops in a different configuration than online. I figured as much but out in the middle was a recently cut hay field and the hash appeared to be really close to the edge of the corn field.

Could it still be reachable? There weren't posted signs, but there was also a narrow corn field between the hay field and the road. With the thick corn blocking further attempts, I went a little further down the road before turning around and I was glad I did. I saw a tractor road that had kind of crushed the corn in the way giving me access without having to step on any plants.

I set my bike down behind the corn and walked into the hay field and toward the hash. Approaching the hash though, I could see I was going to hit the wall of corn first and still not be able to get there. Not wanting to trample corn plants for 80 feet, I'll have to take a No Trespassing for this one.
