[edit] Plans

Well, my graticule has a lot of water and I live on the island of Evia.

Last week I found an RSS feed of geohashes. Until today, all of them were on water or across on continental Greece. However today's (2012-05-12 Saturday) geohash was just 0.8 km off my every-Saturday cycling route (Yes, I am a geek: I cycle the same route every Saturday), this one I couldn't miss.

It was too symbolic: First expedition near my Saturday cycling route on Saturday on a virgin graticule :-) ...

[edit] Expedition

Well, I simply started cycling my Saturday Cycling Route.

After approximately 38km, I just took a left turn, cycled 600 meters, turned left again, cycled 60 meters and I was almost there.

I climbed the hill 20 meter on foot and I was there. I just had to do some circles around the geohash, because of limited GPS accuracy: There were a lot of trees.

That's all!

All photos are GPS-tagged, as a proof of being there at the correct place & date. For some reason Lat/Lon are not shown on the MetaData table. Just download the files to see the coordinates with an external application such as ACDSee.
