Location[edit]

On Wiltshire Rd, by MorningStar Ct in Amherst

Plans[edit]

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.

Participants[edit]

Expedition[edit]

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
