Today's location: not yet announced

The Palm Beach graticule is located at 26, -80 and is home to all of Palm Beach county, about half of Broward county, and parts of some neighboring counties. Portions of this graticule are in the Atlantic Ocean, Lake Okeechobee, and the intracoastal waterway. The southwest portion of the graticule is dominated by the Everglades, a good location for either the MNIMB Geohash or the MNB Geohash. The northwest is primarily lake and large expanses of farmlands which may or may not be accessible. Most locations in the eastern half of the graticule should technically be accessible, but many will land on private property, so may need authorization.

Unsuccessful Geohashes[edit]

Date Map Attempter Location Lame Excuse
2008-06-20 [map] Aperfectring In a nature area in Palm Beach Gardens. I was not prepared for a creek crossing and time constraints prevented me from finding another path.
2008-06-21 [map] Aperfectring On a farm near Port Mayaca. Real life decided to rear its ugly head.
2008-06-28 [map] Aperfectring In the north portion of the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. Unfortunately this portion of the Refuge is closed to the public.
2008-07-15 [map] Rozard In a swamp area east of Lake Okeechobee and south of some orange groves. I was unsuccessful because of time constraints and a lack of an accessible route.
2008-08-30 [map] Dtobias In Weston. Within a gated community, so I had to be satisfied with visiting a nearby city park.
2008-09-21 [map] Dtobias In Coconut Creek. It turned out to be inside an area surrounded by fences and canals... possibly a landfill since some Waste Management trucks were headed into the area. Couldn't get any closer than a business park on the other side of the fence.
2008-11-15 [map] Dtobias In Boynton Beach. I'd have to go jump in the lake to reach this one.
2008-11-25 [map] Dtobias In Fort Lauderdale. I got within 10 or 20 feet or so of it, but would have had to swim to actually reach the point. My car is parked about 1000 feet from it at the airport Park 'n Save while I'm up in New York for Thanksgiving.
2009-03-14 [map] Dtobias, Million zillion In Boynton Beach. The actual hashpoint was inside a house at which nobody appeared to be home at the time, so we had to settle for meeting out on the street and at a nearby gazebo.
2009-07-04 [map] aperfectring In a sugar cane field near Belle Glade. There were tons of No Trespassing signs posted all over the area.
2010-02-21 [map] Million zillion Inside a computer shop on Powerline Road The shop was closed, and I left my lockpick set at home. (Kidding!)
2010-11-06 [map] Million zillion, Rhonda Outside of a residential building in Boca Raton. Thwarted by a gate and a gallery-full of "No Trespassing" signs
2010-12-20 [map] Dtobias In Boca Raton. The hashpoint was inside a condo building; the closest I got to it was the parking lot outside. There were lights on in there, but I was too chicken to knock on the door.
2011-04-09 [map] Dtobias In Boca Raton. It was in the woods, with No Trespassing signs around it and either locked gates or impenetrable brush deterring attempts even if one were to ignore the signs.
2011-04-30 [map] Dtobias In West Palm Beach. Behind somebody's house, near some sheds and outbuildings, but unreachable behind a gate with a forbidding KEEP OUT sign.
2011-11-06 [map] Million zillion A few feet into a canal in Coral Springs Wasn't in the right mood to go swimming in a canal.
2012-06-20 [map] Million zillion In a house in Plantation Acres Close to the house where I grew up, but not close enough to know who lives there. But at least I met a hashcat! :3
2012-07-30 [map] Million zillion In a canal in Tamarac Wasn't in the right mood to go swimming in a canal.
2015-05-11 [map] Dtobias In Boca Raton. In an Everglades University building, in a tech-oriented business park, a mere few feet behind a guarded entrance requiring student ID.
