The Reno, Nevada graticule is at latitude 39, longitude -119. It completely encloses Reno, Sparks, Carson City, Fernley, Dayton, and Incline Village. The most extreme northern portions of Yerington are also included, as well as the northeastern third of Lake Tahoe. There are innumerable small towns, ghost towns, hiking trails, fire roads, and the occasional legal brothel to be found.

The graticule is about 90% land, albeit mountainous. Rock climbers, hikers, ATV enthusiasts, and fans of stark desert landscapes will enjoy geohashing here. On the recreational water bodies front, the graticule encloses Lahontan Reservoir, Washoe Lake, the southern half of Pyramid Lake, and the aforementioned portion of Lake Tahoe.

All the interested northern Nevada people -- bring friends, games and water.

[edit] Old Meetup Planning

The Independence Day holiday weekend has arrived, and northern Nevada knows how to party. Geo hash planning for the three-day weekend is up for discussion at the Reno, Nevada talk page. Reno and Sparks put on fantastic fireworks shows, the latter synchronized to a patriotic musical soundtrack. The music will be played on KOH AM 780, so Lee Greenwood will get his once-a-year royalty.

The 4th of July location is actually in Reno, near a road!

[edit] Old Hashes

This looks like it's actually in the lake. There seems to be a nearby campsite, so we may be able to borrow a boat or I may be able to find a small raft in my garage. Perhaps we could use the 38,-119 (South Lake Tahoe, California) graticule instead?

[edit] Getting Around

While Nevadans are familiar with the basic rules of BLM lands, some things bear repeating.

  • "The boundaries between grazing allotments are fenced as are the boundaries between public and private land. On higher volume roads there will be a "cattle-guard" on the road which is passable by vehicles but not by cattle. Lower volume roads will have a gate across the road. Always leave the gate in the same condition as you found it - if open leave it open, if closed make sure you close it behind you. Gates leading into private land will sometimes be locked or marked with a "No Trespassing" sign, in which case you should respect the property owner's wishes and find another way to get where you want to go."
