[edit] Expedition

Tom and I set off on bike from my house in Brunswick towards the hash. We stopped in at Tom's parents' house in Surrey hills to pick up some pants because you can't go geohashing without pants and then continued on our way. We rode along a rather fun mud path through Surrey hills and then through side streets until we met the Gardners creek trail near East Malvern Station. We took the Gardiners Creek Trail and Waverley road the rest of the way. 800m from the Geohash i spotted a 7/11 and i remembered the Geosquishy achievement so we stopped to get slurpies and check out the exact rules of the achievement, i was delighted to find that this would be a 5 point geosquish achievement. We rode the remainder or the distance one handed so we could hold our slurpies and take them all the way to the hash. The geohash was actually in someones house and we got there at 10:12 pm so we decided in the driveway was close enough. GPS said we we're 8m away with a 10m tolerance.

It had been raining on and off all trip but it was getting quite heavy by the time we were heading home but never lasted for long. We rode home and arrived home at about 11:30.
