On Wiltshire Rd, by MorningStar Ct in Amherst


This hash is again on a road in Amherst about 2 KM from yesterday's hash and still within the 1 KM radius for a 5-star GeoSquishy hash. I'll head to this consecutive hash after work and stop at the driving range that's close afterwords to practice whacking some golf balls.



Pretty basic expedition and very similar to the day before. However, after I got back in the car at the 7-Eleven with my GeoSquishy, I found I was in fact just outside the 1 KM limit for a 5-star GeoSquishy hash. Oh well, 4-Star it is...onto the hash!

Navigating the twisty, awful suburban streets wasn't too bad, but I would have gotten VERY lost if I tried doing that by memory. Getting to Wiltshire, I had to pull over a house before the hash as a woman was walking her dog in the street (and right through the hash for a Curse of Unawareness ribbon). I thought it would be weird to pull up behind her and then creep along. A moment later, I pulled up and stopped by the hash.

Learning my lesson from the day before, I stopped short of the hash and waited for the GPS to catch up. Then ever so slowly crept up until I had a decent reading for the pictures. Getting my proof and a consecutive hash, I drove off to the driving range were I poorly hit most of the bucket of golf balls. Gotta keep practicing for that one time a year I hit the course. :P
