The Quaternary (talk) family geohashers


Checking the Geohash for the morning was a big surprise - the hash appeared right on top of our location! Zooming in it was clear it was very close - indeed, only 450 metres as the proverbial



What a unique opportunity to knock off a few achievements. So we settled on the Walk geohash (well that wasn't going to be too hard), the Tron achievement (by entering and exiting from opposite ends of the street, and not crossing our path), and the Hobbit achievement (travelling hobbit style: barefoot, fed, and bearing a ring).

Unfortunately it took until the end of the day to get a quorum together for our expedition, and the amount of daylight time was quickly diminishing. So unfortunately we did not have enough time to add any hairs to our feet. But we did find time to throw off our shoes and socks, hurriedly prepare some elevensies, put the ring on a string, and print off the geohash poster.

For the rest of the adventure, see the photos. But needless to say, we knocked of a hat-trick of Achievements.
