On the Columbia River Bike Path between Marine Drive and the Columbia.
Jim has a get-together in Salem, so was going to leave shortly to try to go to the hashpoint before heading South.
Michael5000 planned, as a new year's resolution with UnwiseOwl, to go geohashing on Feb. 26 no matter what. It's just good luck that today's hashpoint turned out to be something of a creampuff.
Kydlt went today too.
Michael5000 dressed pretty warmly for a sub-freezing bicycle ride, but still lost track of his toes four miles into the nineteen-mile jaunt. Google Maps clearly shows the hashpoint on the trail; by my GPS the point was about a foot and a half north of the trail. I left a message for passers-by, and no doubt somebody at the other end of a CCT camera noticed the dude with a black balaclava making chalk marks and photographing airport operations. Then I rode home.
Kydlt ' made it @ about 15:30. Photos soon, after dinner. But I am still working on my upload skills. Hell, I got my name wrong the 1st time'
Jim should have been at the hashpoint around 4PM, but got stuck on side streets that didn't connect, and finally actually got out there at about 5PM. He passed by it about 3 times trying to figure out where to leave the car where it would be safe, and finally setted on the original place he had thought of.
He photographed the area, and Michael5000's chalk markings and went on to run errands.
