A happy convergence of fate! Looking at the Geohashing Coordinate Calculator it was apparent that in the neighbouring graticule to where I live, there was a publically accessible geohash location PLUS we had to go and pick up a Trademe (online auction) purchase about one kilometre away from it. This calls for some geohashing! (Son, you'd better take the day off school - otherwise there would be no-one to be in the photo).


With the Trademe item successfully picked up (a beehive) it was off to find the geohash. It was found without too much of a problem. One of the neighbours came out and shared a yarn with us - he thought it was pretty cool concept and was a little sad that it wasn't on his property :)




Quaternary earned the Virgin Graticule Achievement
by being the first to reach any hashpoint in the (-43, 171) graticule, here, on 2013-09-17.
