Looks like a reasonably easy hash - in a green area off a road. But would it be a park or a paddock? I am heading out that way later on in the day with a friend, David, so we'll check it out.
It turned out that the hash was in the middle of a paddock. Walking into the paddock would be trespassing. However, my friend David whom I was with was a lawyer, and he considered the situation like this: "You're not actually trespassing until someone asks you to leave. Otherwise, how would you go and ask someone for permission if you couldn't go and knock on someone's door? As long as you are not on the land with an unlawful purpose."
Ahh, yeah, that makes sense. And what could be a more lawful purpose than geohashing!!
But I still didn't want to get growled at by someone! Still, it didn't look as if this land had a farm house on it. It looked like just an empty paddock surrounded by suburbia. Besides, it probably was belonged to by the government. Strapping on the proverbials, we decided to jump the barb wire fence and claim the hash for all the hashers of the world!
Because as they say, if you're not living life on the edge then you're taking up too much room!
LOOK OUT! On the way to the hash we were almost flattened by a RAPTOR! It might look a long way away in the photo, but in real life we could have touched it if we had put our hands up that were otherwise curled up over our heads! Photo looks blurry? C'mon, that is a fully grown A380 double-deckor fire-breathing raptor!
