Broadway in Somerville. Very reachable for Boston-area folks.


  • User:Phyzome: This is totally like 4 blocks from my house! And I am at home!


Success! 7-person meetup. Not everyone was present all at the same time, but everyone did meet everyone. Names of non-wiki folks withheld, but:

Phyzome earned the Meet-up achievement
by meeting BChamby, Phi, and 4 others at the (42, -71) geohash on 2010-11-06.


Got there slightly late, but bicycled through the hash with a GPS logger in my pocket.


Got there right at 4 p.m., exact point was in the middle of the road, watched most of the crew arrive.


Failed to find sidewalk chalk at CVS. Ran from my house to the hashpoint in 1 minute 20 seconds -- got to be a record of some sort, yes? Found the first Ben and two other hashers already there. Played in the street with GPS, in between traffic, but realized I had left the coordinates all the way back at the house (4 blocks away.) Phi biked across the point and circled back to chat. The second Ben wandered up and produced a surprise bottle of sparkling cider, along with several wine glasses! We clinked glasses and drank to hashing. Later, my girlfriend made an appearance, and even ran back to the house to dig out some chalk so I could write a marker on the street.

There was discussion of Erdős, Bacon, and Munroe numbers.

All in all, seven people showed up! This was my 4th and largest meetup, which was very exciting. This is a deja vu hash for me (since I bicycle through that point every few weeks) and a couch potato honorable mention. So, I'm totally gonna load up on achievement ribbons for this one:

Phyzome earned the Déjà Vu Geohash Achievement
by reaching the (42, -71) geohash on 2010-11-06, and previously on a roughly weekly basis.
Phyzome earned the Walk geohash Achievement
by reaching the (42, -71) geohash on 2010-11-06 on foot.
Phyzome earned the Couch Potato Geohash Honorable Mention
by living near the (42, -71) geohash on 2010-11-06.
