The hash is near the Hietalahti graveyard. At 17:00 it might be spooky enough, because the sun has set down. This really is a chance to have a MEGA-hash, so be there! I don't know if there's an award for a mass-hash, but who cares?!
Special guest star travelling geocache Hirvikärpänen.
At least ten persons turned up
So, I missed Couch Potato Geohash by 450 meters, but got a very easy Walk geohash Achievement instead :-) It's a pity that due to my other commitments I had to skip the biggest geohash get-together to date in Finland. Visited the spot about an hour and a half before others got there.
Started our 'conspiracy' with stebu yesterday, but had to get the travelling geocache into my hands before I could advertise that it will be here. Technically I guess that Haaskalintu earned the hash collision award by finding the cache at this very spot.
Didn't realize until afterwards that I should have walked here, I'll bet Mikkozzz did. Instead I came by tram. The tram passes about 50 meters from ground zero and there's also a tram stop well below 100 meters from GZ, but that is not in use at the moment, so I had to choose to get of at the stop a few hundred meters before or after the optimal. Saw two people (Stone'5 and Roni L) at the site, when I walked around the last corner. And when I got there, a bright flashlight brought my attention to rauski sitting in his car almost on GZ.
Hietaniemi cemetery weather observatory recorded temperature -2.8 C at 17:00, so this should qualify as a Frozen Geohash Achievement.
