[edit] Earliest activity

The first so-called "activity" was on May 25, 2008. It was done by Drew and Mike. Nothing happened, we were just bored. For the record, this was not a full-fledged meetup. It was just something to do.

[edit] Expeditions

  • 2008-05-25 - Drew and Mike made the first attempt at this graticule, but it was on private property.
  • 2008-07-12 - Somebody anonymous claims to have visited the geohash, which would be the first successful expedition in this graticule.
  • 2012-03-01 - niffrig and aemoore365 reached a hash in the city of O'Fallon near Mexico Road.

An anonymous geohasher earned the Virgin Graticule Achievement
by being the first to reach any hashpoint in the (38, -90) graticule, here, on 2008-07-12.

NOTE:The first successful expedition was claimed by an unknown individual, who never provided any evidence. Thus, this Virgin graticule award could be disputed.
