Today's Location: [Lynn, MA]

The Lynn, Massachusetts graticule is at latitude 42, longitude -70.

This coastal graticule often yields coordinates far out over water. It obviously includes a lot of water, but it also has several coastal towns and harbors -- Gloucester, Salem, Rockport, Newburyport, and Hampton to the north, Quincy and Weymouth to the south, and the tip of Cape Cod (Provincetown and North Truro). Won't be accessible very often. Offers incentive to practice sailing or sea kayaking.

Meetups are not usually feasible for this reason. Geohashers are encouraged to attend meetups in nearby graticules in this event. The Boston meetups are well-attended and frequently feature the presence of Randall Munroe. Provincetown geohashers may prefer to attend the Cape Cod area meetups.

  • xaco - But he usually goes to the Boston graticule coordinates since the Lynn graticule geohashes are almost always over water.
