Expedition (relet)[edit]

So yeah, it was not quite the Migration this time. After finding out that most of the people I had alerted were away for the weekend or on business travel, the elation subsided. And that to a degree that I was still slacking about at home at the designated meetup time, searching for stuff (I am ever more amazed at the perseverance with which I manage to misplace my GPS. Not like I wouldn't use it daily as a phone, if I hadn't misplaced it) and waiting for lyx to return so that at least we could go hashing together.

Oh, wait - lyx? Hadn't I told her about the plans? That was when the phone rang. "Hey! Where are you?!" - She had been waiting for an hour at the hash, with not even me showing up. *gulp* I quickly gathered all the hashing related items I had found by now and mounted my bike. Maybe fifteen minutes later, I found her waiting on the bench near the hash.

We took a different way back, earning me the Tron Soon-to-be-an-Achievement.


The batteries died on our tracklogger, and it was not recorded. But here is the path I took.


lyx and relet earned the Pub Geohash Achievement
by visiting a pub visible from the (52, 13) geohash on 2009-05-29.
lyx and relet earned the Hash collision honorable mention
by discovering the geocache GCT1CC near the (52, 13) geohash on 2009-05-29.
lyx and relet earned the Phonebooth stuffing achievement
by helping stuff a phonebooth near the (52, 13) geohash on 2009-05-29.

The hash is -RIGHT- in the center of Berlin, on Tilla Durieux Park off Potsdamer Platz. This might be an unique chance to possibly gain:

  • Hashcard achievements
  • Underground achievements (Tiergarten tunnel rail tracks)
  • Hash collision (One traditional, one possible multi in range)
  • Migration (How do we get 50 people together? Free drinks? Slackline?)
  • Tron achievement
  • Walking / Cycling / whatever you need
  • Twister geohash (the ground is only slightly tilted)
  • If these pink boxes are what they seem, we might get a Phonebooth stuffing achievement. Update: confirmed using maps.live.com birds eye view.
  • Pubs are close. I can recommend the Caroshi Bar, of course within line of sight from the hash. :)
  • ...

Suggested plenary time: 6pm! (any comments?)

Bring Games! Twister, Frisbee, ...
Collective karoshi at quarter to 8pm with happy hour cocktails @ http://www.caroshi.info/
