Great write up! Sounds like it went... well. This more than qualifies you or the No trespassing and Police geohash achievements too! Can't wait to hear more! Thepiguy 06:53, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

You are awesome! That's the most audacious ambassador attempt I've ever seen. -Robyn 07:41, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
Argh! I forgot to take a picture of all the No Trespassing signs -- doh! --Wenslayer 21:00, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

I sometimes think I should carry a geohashing checklist:

  • proof of location
  • proof of time/date
  • stupid grin
  • xkcd marker
  • play games
  • group photo
  • achievements
  • hashcot picture
  • photo of the actual geohash

I think you should be very proud of your first geohashing expedition. On mine I chickened out talking to border guards, and you went right through to trying to persuade prison guards. -Robyn 07:50, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Ah, that's a good idea -- and thanks for the kind words, Robyn! --Wenslayer 14:58, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for this write-up. Coincidentally, I tried a prison geohash two weeks after you did, but I didn't have the courage to ask the correctional officer to let me onto the prison grounds. Sara 00:07, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Wow, amazing. I must have missed that one. Or did I? Anyway. I think, as per prior definitions, MND must be Mother Nature's Ditch. Were there any ditches alongside the road? %) -- relet 06:30, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Indeed! I wondered if that would qualify me for the Media Attention achievement; thoughts? --Wenslayer 16:00, 10 August 2010 (UTC)
