Today's location: not yet announced

The San Diego graticule is at latitude 32, longitude -117. It encloses much of the greater San Diego area and Tijuana. It consists of about 85% water and 5% of land in Mexico. The combination of the geography and population density make it a challenging graticule indeed.

US hashers in this graticule may look to surrounding graticules specifically Santa Ana, Borrego Springs and Tecate, Mexico for achievable hashes. Hashers operating out of Mexico should look to Tecate to the west and Ensenada to the southwest.


Please update this section when you plan to attempt to reach a hash point. Hashers who follow the page can receive updates about your plan by email. Don't be afraid to update this section to point to neighboring graticules when the hash is close by, especially on Saturday.
