On the edge of a soccer field next to the Camillus Middle School.
As mentioned in the Expedition report for the day before, I was driving up to the Adirondacks and luckily, this hash was only about a 25-30 minute detour from my route. I left the house around 10am or so, and the only interesting thing I saw was just outside of Buffalo; a Tractor-Trailer was overturned in the median of the thruway. There was a crew already there helping to get the tractor back in the proper position, but it wasn't something I've ever seen before in person. I'm just glad I wasn't there when it happened!
My directions were good and I was nearing the hash close to 13:00. I turned on the GPS a little early as I wasn't exactly sure when to expect my turn toward the school and I'm glad I did. The GPS was showing I was 22 miles away from the hash when I was I was expecting to see something closer to 4 or 5. I pulled over to check the coords and it turned out that as I was entering the info, I inadvertently mixed my current location and the finish location from the HashDroid App. Adjusting the Latitude, I was back on track. I was expecting to find a field full of kids playing/practicing, but as I pulled into the parking lot of the school, I was happy to see it completely empty.
It was then a simple matter to cross the field and zero in on the hash with a short GPS dance. Getting my pictures, I headed back to the car and continued on my way. I arrived in Long Lake in the early evening and was excited for the events of the next day which included an early morning Virgin-Graticule expedition and my sister's Ironman!
Checking back 2 weeks later and what's this? It appears that this is a Last Man Standing expedition...pretty rare for a Saturday as well.
