2010-10-02: 41.34213°, -72.23755° Coordinates located north of West Society Road in East Lyme, CT behind what appears to be private property behind a McMansion. (Suggest that we consider the sidewalk, adjacent to the rock wall, be the meet point.)

2010-10-10: 41.94518°, -72.8512° Coordinates located in a stand of evergreen trees, almost 500' south of Weed Hill Road in West Granby, Connecticut. There appears to be a well-worn track (maybe an old dirt road) a stone's throw from the left-hand turn on Weed Hill Road which is about 500' west of the geohash point. (Another good meet point for Sunday, if you are so inclined.)

2010-10-11: 41.72455°, -72.28202° Coordinates located in a small body of water, adjacent to a natural gas pipeline in Coventry, CT. Pipeline is accessible NW of the geohash point from the Hop River State Park Trail, which runs along a former rail line. (This is a good opportunity to approach the hash point by bicycle ... you might need to wade into the water to get to the hash point - ha ha.)

2010-10-12: 41.75473°, -72.39806° Coordinates located adjacent to Hutchinson Road in Andover, CT. This road runs parallel to US Route 6. It is a rural farm area.

2010-10-17: 41.634°, -72.87076° Coordinates located in the far right eastbound lane of Interstate Route 84, Queen Street exit, in Southington, Connecticut. (I pass through this point every weekday evening on my way home. -Seth)

Too bad Kathy-Johns is closed down.

2010-10-31: 41.47923°, -72.62181° Coordinates located east of Foot Hills Road, east of Durham, Connecticut - and though accessible through a driveway at the end of Oxbow Road, I would advise you look very carefully for NO TRESPASSING signs, here-abouts.

Where to eat: Chuck Wagon Restaurant, 12 Church St, Ellington, CT 06029-3302,(860) 872-3950 ‎

2010-11-02: 41.72158°, -72.06958° Coordinates located adjacent to 325 Pudding Hill Rd (Connecticut State Route 97) in Hampton, Connecticut, to the right of a driveway and several steps off of the road. Where to eat: No place nearby, so plan on heading in to Willimantic to eat.

Best access is from Village Street or Jerrick Stree, in East Hartford, following a cleared grassy area which parallels the river, heading north and then east, crossing the railroad tracks, and then northeast, approaching the hash point from the northwest, and then about 100 feet into the woods. Where to eat: Triple-A-Restaurant, 1209 Main Street, East Hartford, CT, (860) 289-1685. Less than a half mile from the hash point.

2010-11-05: 41.47144°, -72.41446° Coordinates located in somebody's back yard, on Connecticut State Highway 424 (Mt. Parnassus-Millington Road), about three miles east of the Connecticut River and about a mile south of Bashan Lake, in Haddam, Connecticut.

2010-11-06: 41.40257°, -72.12557° Coordinates located in the woods, near the edge of a field on what appears to have been a working farm, off of Millers Pond Road, about a half of a mile west of Connecticut State Route 32 in Central Waterford, Connecticut.

2010-11-07: 41.76098°, -72.55106° Coordinates located in an industrial area on what appears to be the property of a construction materials company on Bidwell Street, in central Manchester, Connecticut, south of Interstate Route 384.

2010-11-11: Veterans Day 41.60997°, -72.42288° Coordinates located in the Salmon River Forest, east of the Salmon River, and north of Connecticut State Route 2, approximately 200 yards west of Jerry Daniels Road and about 500 yards north of South Main Street, in Marlboro, Connecticut. This will probably require a bushwack through a little bit of forest.


Daily entries curtailed for the off-season. Only strange, unusual, and notable hash points will be entered during this time.


2010-11-23: 41.94969°, -72.6727° Coordinates located just off the side of Runway 24 at Bradley International Airport. This is a high security area, so you will be hard pressed to reach this point, unless you work for airport security or are on a jet which runs off of the side of the runway, in which case you would be lucky to walk away.

2010-11-24: 41.46165°, -72.56389° Coordinates located on the western sidelines of the football field of Haddam-Killingworth High School, Little City Road off of Connecticut State Route 81. The hash point is at the 25 yard line at the northerly end of the field. This is an easy geohash.

2011-01-24: 41.46151°, -72.25055° Coordinates located in the middle of a pond on the southwest of Route 85 (New London Road), in Salem, Connecticut. Normally this would require a short swim, or the use of a boat, canoe, inner tube, or other floating device. Today you had the rare option of walking on the water. I didn't take advantage of this opportunity because it was REALLY COLD today. This could be considered an easy geohash ... if you are a polar bear.

2011-03-13: 41.94352°, -72.68502° Deja Vu! (see 2010-11-23) Coordinates located just off the side of Runway 24 at Bradley International Airport. This is a high security area, so you will be hard pressed to reach this point, unless you work for airport security or are on a jet which runs off of the side of the runway, in which case you would be lucky to walk away.

2011-05-09: 41.7665°, -72.17898° Today's geohash is a perfect opportunity to achieve the Drive-by Geohash award. This geohash point is in the middle of the Bassetts Bridge Road in Mansfield Center, CT, as you travel eastward from Connecticut Route 195 before crossing Mansfield Hollow Lake.

2011-10-09: 41.403°, -72.618° Coordinates located in the woods to the east of Emanuel Church Road in Killington, CT.
