Geohashers at the hash point

[edit] Location

Micheldever, Hampshire, UK (on the side of a road very near the train station!)

[edit] Participants

The geohash according to Google Streetview. Looks like a nice place to stop! :)
And here we are, at that spot! :D


[edit] Plans

It's a 4pm meetup! Bring food, juggling balls, games, the lot!

Bluecont may turn up, but this will require a little bit of advance notice regarding plans - it's a bit far to go and a bit too easy to find unless there is a Saturday meet-up happening.

I will definitely be there at 4pm. Hope to see you! -- sermoa 11:05, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
Correction - Bluecont will turn up, see you at 4! -- Bluecont 12:19, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
What time exactly are you getting there? The trains may make it easier to arrive slightly after 4. Which is okay if we agree and arrange it to be slightly later. -- sermoa 12:22, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Expedition

  • Wow, two geohashes in two days! This is a really nice one, right near the Micheldever train station! Should be there for the 4pm meetup! :) -- sermoa 21:16, 28 May 2010 (GMT+01:00)
  • I have printed and laminated a poster, yay! And there might be another person coming too! :) -- sermoa 14:17, 29 May 2010 (GMT+01:00)
  • Good, all ready, just about to leave to get the train. -- sermoa 15:24, 29 May 2010 (GMT+01:00)
  • Am at or close to hash point. Will await others. This phone sucks - bluecont

[edit] Detailed Report

Actually, this isn't going to be very detailed. I took the train, with Mapaholic, DavidMiller and the kids, which was fun. We were disappointed to find that the fields had performed the same trick as the fields last night in appearing to be deceptively small on the satellite view. We had a long walk which was hard for little legs, but we got to the geohash in time to meet Bluecont. We played around, took photos, exchanged pleasant geeky conversation, put up our poster. Bluecont was extremely kind to give us all a lift back to the station where we had a quick search for a geocache, but it started to rain so we took the train back home again.
