Today's location: not yet announced

Graticule: 35, -80 Today's Location: [Charlotte, North Carolina]

We are actually incorporating the graticule one south of this as well. This is because there is a large population of people in Union County, and this will make them more able to meet at the location. It has the other advantage of giving us two choices of meet up spots in the event one is too hard to get to, attend the other.

[edit] Participants

  • WokTiny: Waiting for it to be in my backyard.
  • Olivaw: I'd like to give this a shot. I'll have a hard time getting out though because of work and my wife, she doesn't always understand this internet thing.
  • HeavyCruiserLost
  • Zaph: I'm going to be gone for a while, but I plan to do some geohashing when I get back in late July/August.
  • Joe: Like WokTiny, I'm in the southwest of this graticule. I'll probably bring wife and kids and make an outing of it!
  • Jon: I live in Huntersville, Hopefully the hash is somewhere near here soonish. If the point is with an hour of Huntersville and I have not posted plans, e-mail me if you want to meet up.
  • TerpGirl: In the city limits of Charlotte, and three hour drives are seldom an option.
  • Patrick: I'll try to make it occasionally - busy for the fourth though.
  • Sleepless: I'm down for adventure and I'll drag anyone I can convince along for the ride. 1st Saturday, I'll be there
  • Ramblingwreck: I live in the Gastonia, North Carolina graticule, but points in Charlotte are often more accessible for me.
  • Thalamus: I live in the southwest quadrant of this graticule. As of today (September 26th, 2013), my graticule is inactive. I shall activate it the moment the hashpoint is reasonably close to me.
  • hobosullivan: Born and raised in this graticule. Waiting for a hashpoint that won't require me to pass through the misery that is downtown.

I found from GoMAPS that the property is owned by "601 INVESTMENTS LLC". It looks like open field, perhaps crops. Geohashers will have to decide when they get there whether entry is appropriate. -- WokTiny
