Josemite lives in Eagan, has a car and will go geohashing to most places relatively nearby, typically with his father.
Sprica lives on campus for the moment, has no car, is married to the bus lines, and will perhaps barter a horse, nonetheless...she will be there.
FsM lives in Como and has no form of long distance transportation other than the bus, so its just a matter of waiting for the right day...
Chris is abysmally busy in what would seem to be a permanent way. He probably won't be attending geohashes in the near future.
Abi lives in south Minneapolis, and will try to make it to the geohashes that don't require expending an excessive quantity of gas to get there.
Ford lives in St. Paul and hates to drive. I guess one only has to go on the hash once in a lifetime to be a hashi, though. Or is that hashashin?
Jennifer lives in St. Paul and will be attending when both work, location, and the stars collide. It's more than likely she will be at ones closer to the city than those further out like Saturday's (May 24 2008) location.
Alex lives in South Minneapolis and would love to do this on a Saturday when she can tear herself away from grading papers (which will get much easier in, oh, two weeks).
Brendan lives near this graticule and is able to drive anywhere within reason
Joel lives just northwest of Minneapolis but is keeping an eye on this square also.
mike has too many vehicles, but prefers to stick to his bicycle or motorcycle when possible.
Rebecca is starting a job on June 2 requiring her to work at 4 PM. (Boo...)
Nick doesn't like paying for gas, but might be willing to drive (relatively) short distances.
Skyler is at the U, and can bike or bus, but that's pretty much it.
Alan lives in the NE corner of this graticule, on the East side of St. Paul.
Ashley lives just south of Minneapolis and will be attempting Saturday excursions the summer of 2008.
Ali is living in the location for the summer only. He's going to try to come to as many as possible.
Erik lives in a small town 15 miles southeast of Mankato, about 1250 feet from the southern edge of the graticule. He might check out ones near him, if he remembers.
Adem lives on the northern edge of this graticule, and possesses both a beautiful bike and an ever-rustier heap of a car. He'll try to make it to the saturday meetups over the winter of '08-'09.
Steve lives in the NE most corner of graticule SW Minneapolis (44, -93) near the U and is new to this, but will try and keep an eye out for nearby hashes near the corner of the four twin cities graticules.
Jordan lives in Lakeville, and intends to traipse about the countryside whenever able.
Brent lives in South Saint Paul, and is way too chicken (and lazy) to try any difficult geohash attempts.
Scott I'm a Mankato student who is able to go to most meetups if there is some sort of motivation.
