  • 2008-06-07 Champaign/Urbana, Illinois - Brett made it to the coordinates after an easy drive north from Champaign. He expected to meet other geohashers, but none showed up. He left a flag marking the spot.
  • 2008-06-07 Edmonton Alberta, Canada - 2 Groups met up at the geohash which landed in the back yard of a private acreage
  • 2008-06-07 Kiev, Ukraine in a forestlet between two fields not far from Mriya (The Dream) resort. grep was here ;)
  • 2008-06-07 Eindhoven, Netherlands in farmland south of Tilburg. Reached by Paul
  • 2008-06-07 Gelsenkirchen, NRW, Germany - On a football field very close to Gelsenkirchen railway station. Kliment and TinoM will be there. Food will be available.
  • 2008-06-07 Malmö, Sweden - It's near road 101 on the opposite side from Vellinge golf club.
  • 2008-06-07 Santa Barbara - Wilderness near Ojai. Jareds will probably be there. UPDATE: He's incompetent. He thought he could get within 2 miles of the coordinates via "Sisar Rd", but it turns into an unpaved road/trail that is soon blocked by a gate, which is just as well since it goes through a creek. This was 8 miles from the point he intended to leave the "road" following the "road" itself, though only four miles as the crow flies, but he is not a crow. He had enough to drink to continue on foot, but turned back at 5pm since he was way late and wouldn't be able to reach the coordinates and return to his car until after dark but he had no flashlight. Some cyclists passed him on the trail, but he was solving a Rubik's cube and believes they would have stopped if they were xkcd readers.
  • 2008-06-07 Los Angeles - Between Acton and Palmdale. Four folks from three groups showed up. Found a snake.
  • 2008-06-07 Santa Ana - Temecula Valley High School Soccer Field. Wine tasting anyone?

  • 2008-06-07 London West, United Kingdom - Between platforms 13 and 14 of Waterloo Station. Krunch was there (first time). Overall, about 14 people turned up, including a a three year old boy. One of them brought the game "Ticket to Ride" in a strangely copious briefcase which was then played amongst the trains.
  • 2008-06-07 Boston, Massachusetts - On route 95 South, directly underneath the exit 37A 1/4 mile sign. 12 or so people met in a nearby park, drove past the hash at about 40 MPH in a caravan, then returned to the park for frisbee, Blokus, and Fluxx.
  • 2008-06-07 Vienna, Austria - Somewhere in a field.
  • 2008-06-07 Baltimore, Maryland Coordinates located on a lovely beach at a Rehabilitation Clinic in Havre De Grace, MD. Will be attempting to reach if not stopped by strung-out indigenous inhabitants.

  • 2008-06-07 Linköping, Sweden - Southeast of Motala. Effbot found a towel at the target location, and almost got caught by the police on the way back (don't ask ;-).
  • 2008-06-07 Omaha, NE (west) - Inside of a fenced field near a road northwest of Fort Calhoun.
  • 2008-06-07 Spokane, WA - The problem with the west coast is highly uneven density - but Hwy 27 is a nice drive anyways.

  • 2008-06-07 Detroit, MI - Right in someone's driveway. Meetup was maybe 80 feet north in a nice shaded area by a sidewalk.
  • 2008-06-07 Nashville, TN - Kurochi and his girlfriend drove a couple of hours with BBQ to tihs remote farm in the hills, didn't see anyone XKCD-esque but the food was delicious!
  • 2008-06-07 Reno, Nevada - Paveman followed a bumpy, rocky utility road to the middle of the desert. Although he brought coffee and sandwich fixings, no other hashers were present.

  • 2008-06-07 Atlanta, Georgia - ElSupreme decided to attempt the longest bicycle geohash, about 45 miles through the center of Atlanta to the location.

  • 2008-06-07 Canberra, Australia - Failed to reach the hash due to it being at the bottom of a cliff.
  • 2008-06-07 Houston, TX - Tradiuz and SmartGirl83 drove out there, and spent some time at the nearby Fry's Electronics beforehand.
  • 2008-06-07 Waco, TX - elenaran and GreyGndalf hiked out to the middle of a cornfield in search of other geohashers.
  • 2008-06-07 55 12 - Spotted by SolidHydrogen near Højelse, Denmark, but not reached as it was in a private cow barn.

  • 2008-06-13 51 -0 51.321696°, -0.278954° - West London Graticule. As it was extremely close to my desk, I popped by today's geohash in Epsom, Surrey and took a few pictures from the closest road. The actual spot is on private property. The photo shows a tree (beyond the lamppost) which I believe to be the geohash location.
  • 2008-06-13 42 -71 42.576378N, 71.158378W - Boston graticule. A visit to a World War I memorial in the middle of a traffic island in charming Wilmington, MA.
  • 2008-06-13 47 -122 47.57637N, 122.15837W - Seattle graticule. Just off I-90 in South Bellevue, in a driveway.

  • 2008-06-16 Newark, NJ: I'll be there around 2:30pm, and I'll be hitting up the overpass so I can park safely. I will probably hang around in the parking lot to the northwest for a while afterward. I'm on FRS channel 6 if you want to get in touch. --LangleyLGLF 16:40, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
