The target was just off of Planck Road, apparently in a field.


  • Blanked


Blanked got up after a late, late night to check the coordinates for today. Seeing the Staunton, Virginia coordinates were further away than these, and today's were reasonably accessible, he made the decision to head for the 4:00 meetup.

It was fairly easy to get over to Planck Road, which brought Blanked within about 160 feet of the hash point. He parked at a break in the opposite-side fence, where there was room to pull over, and walked back to 154 feet of the hash point (according to GPS).

Unfortunately, it was clear that the point was on private property. A line of trees obscured a fence, upon which there were 'No Hunting' signs (which, in Virginia, is the same as 'No Trespassing').

So Blanked went back to his car, picking up trash on the way, and headed home. He didn't see any other hashers- he arrived (~3:50) and left (~4:05) early.


If anyone wants higher-rez versions of the above, I have them.
