 Our Graticule
The Newark graticule is at 40 N, -74 W. This graticule is among the most populous in the United States, with a population in the neighborhood of 7 million people. It includes almost the entire northern half of New Jersey, the most densely populated state (Census), as well as Staten Island, western sections of Brooklyn and lower Manhattan in New York, and a part of Pennsylvania northeast of Philadelphia. In addition, other than Raritan Bay, there are no large sections of water.

 Daily geohash
Reachable geohashing locations will be discussed via Twitter: @jevanyn #geohashNJ
 Suggested Meetup Locations
Interesting reachable locations will be posted the same day as they come up. The 80%-90% rate of private property discourages me from updating more often.
Geohashers can also receive daily emails with automated Google address lookup through activegeohasher.com.
Meetups are usually worked out between geohashers when an accessible location comes up. Get to know your neighbors :-)
The geohash for the date in the original comic (May 26, 2005) is challenging but reachable, in Mill Brook, Morris County. If you make an attempt, tell us about it here!

[Bing Maps] with Bird's Eye view, better idea of scale and finding paths through complicated terrain.
[Zillow] real estate valuation site, to find out if it's private property / a rough neighborhood / both.
[NJ Transit] for public transportation geohashes
And of course [Wikipedia] to find out which township/borough/county a geohash is in :-)
Wanted: a good bike-map website. NJ Bike Map.com is okay but doesn't include a lot of local bike trails.
- Google Maps now has a bike trail layer, which is a good start.
