The Drag-Along achievement can be earned by reaching the geohash together with a friend or acquaintance who has not heard of geohashing before. The dragee does not need to be a reader of xkcd, though it helps. It does not count toward the drag-along achievement if you have to use duct tape, rope, coax cable or forcibly move the person.
If you send a non-geohasher to a geohash, but you are unable to attend the geohash yourself, you probably qualify for the Puppet Master Geohash instead of this one.
