  • 2011-10-01: EvilUncleNomo and The Wife attempted our first geohash today. She quit when we found the swamp. I went on without her and sunk up to my shins.
  • 2010-10-30: Fbfree Planning a Fermilab geohash.
  • 2010-03-19: Shandd traveled to the location and walked through the muddiest field of his of life. His shoes did not survive.
  • 2009-08-15: Greetings from m5rammy in Dayton, OH. I'll be in your graticule on Saturday, will anyone be at (or near) the meet up point? Let's get together. I'll bring the games.
  • 2009-02-15: excellentdude stopped by the cornfield coordinates on his way home to Michigan from Missouri.
  • 2008-06-14: The location is pretty much at the eastern edge of the graticule, near I-88, right next to what appears to be a Shell gas station. I (Paradox7) plan to be there at 4pm (especially since it's the first geohash that's been within my reach!) for the meetup, anyone else coming?
    • I (YellowYoshi) am expecting to be there as well, with one or two people :-) I must admit that I'm cheating, since I actually belong to the graticule to the east.
      • Heh, so do I. Living near the edge of a graticule has its bonuses, I guess . . . --Paradox7
    • I'll show up as well (Spider)
      • We wound up with a little crowd, it was fun. I'm just sad we'll be out of town this weekend and we'll miss the big meetup downtown. (moodygrrl)
  • 2008-05-31: Brett detoured to the coordinates while on his way to Chicago. He was unsurprised to find no one else there since he arrived half an hour late and the coordinates were far away from... everything.
  • 2008-05-24: GLneo and William reached the point via dirt bike

[edit] Notable Hash Dates

  • May 30, 2008 The geohash was located somewhere in fermilab!! I think that probably qualifies as the nerdiest geohash ever. Its a shame it was a work day, and Due to the script malfunction on that day, I (spider) didn't learn about it until the day after.
  • June 20, 2008: According to the calculator, it looks like it's back at Fermilab, off in the northeast corner near the end of Power Line Road (it's hard to miss, that's the road that goes along the huge Pi-shaped power line supports). Unfortunately, it's not a public area, so you'd probably have to settle for Wilson Hall or the Buffalo Farm if you're not an employee here. (logic)
    • And I (virgletati) just happen to be a Fermilab employee.
