Today’s hash was north of Merchants Millpond State Park and was also an opportunity to grab a new graticule. We left home and drove straight to the hash, just north of Duke Swamp. The hash was easy – just off the road in some thin woods. After cleaning up trash along the road until 1600, we drove south and ate our Easter picnic at the State Park and then went for a short hike into the Park.
