[edit] About

The geohash was at Kensington Road in Gosport.

[edit] Participants

Sadly just Sermoa. A lot of people were there by coincidence (because they happen to live in the area!) but i was the only person there by intention.

[edit] Expedition

I took the train from Winchester to Portsmouth Harbour, then the ferry over to Gosport. From there i walked to the coordinate location.


[edit] Tracklog

I'm not very good at geography, i didn't look at the map properly, i forgot the name of the road, and i forgot to take my phone so i didn't know the exact time.

Despite all those potential setbacks, i managed to find my way there. I roughly knew the time - i was there from about 15:50 to 16:20.

I took lots of photos and wrote a little note which i posted through the door of the house. I didn't have the nerve to knock and tell them about it. They probably would not have understood anyway!

[edit] Photos

[edit] Panoramic photos

I took some photos in May in the hope of making a panorama. It's only now in October that i know how to do it! Unfortunately the photos don't overlap well enough to make a full 360 but i managed to get these little snippets. -- sermoa 18:19, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

It was my first geohash so i'll award myself this:

Public transport is pretty much default for me anyway, since i don't have a car! But it was great to be able to go by ferry! :)

It was good fun even though i didn't meet anybody. I'll certainly do another one when it's somewhere i can get to.
