[edit] Planning

Getting there by bus:

  • nearest bus stop: the 351 stops on King George and 32 Ave
  • the stop is about 3.4 km away from the hashpoint; quick bike ride, or longish walk
  • 351 route map and time table

For those taking the bus, you can join us at these meetpoints:

  • 8:50 at Burrard Station
  • 9:00 at Broadway and Granville

Bicyclists: caution, there are only 2 bike rack spots on each 351 bus, and the buses are half an hour apart on sunday.

[edit] Comments from from local geohashers who aren't very local at the moment

It makes me sad I'm not in Vancouver. You guys are having so much fun! And there are so many new people! ... Then I remember I'm going biking with Reinhard and Manu tomorrow, and I'm a little less sad. But I still miss Vancouver. Thepiguy 19:09, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

I miss my home graticule too. I'm soothed by the hope of scoring some exotic northern graticules for my Graticule Hopper quest, but there are thunderstorms today, so no flying. Having all kinds of new people geohashing Vancouver without us is infinitely better than having good geohashes go to waste because Pi and I are out of town. So you go, guys! Maybe put an extra pinecone on your location marker for us. -Robyn 18:07, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

What is this? It's already the next morning (it is here at least) and there's no report yet? What am I supposed to do at work all day? Thepiguy 06:48, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Bah, it's midnight and I'm drunk and tired. :P To summarize, success, with some cycling and ambassador. Picnic was also had. Yangman 06:58, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
All of us had plans for the afternoon. Half the group went to the car-free vancouver events, and the other half went to play tag. -- Rhonda 14:00, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

You guys are too many! *sobs* This is how geohashing should always be! -- relet 14:38, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Yes, my heart swells with happiness. When I first started geohashing and realized all geohashes were not like this, I dreamed that some day they would be. I would never have guessed that my own graticule was going to become a shining example of the future of geohashing. Everywhere! You can all be like us. We too started out with lonely geohashes in the rain, where no one met anyone. You're still allowed to be jealous, though. *I* am jealous because I'm out of the graticule all month. -Robyn 20:04, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

I still can't believe you guys chalked a stranger's patio! There needs to be an additional level to the ambassador achievement for that. The final level is having the owner of the coordinates show up at a future expedition. Seriously though, the whole expedition is very admirable. Juventas 05:54, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Fbfree

That is long trip to miss out on the meetup. It apparently didn't discourage you from doing it again. Why the frowny face? You were hoping for more heads up time? Now that you've made it to a meetup, and the suspense is over, are you looking forward to a break, or waiting for the next one? Juventas 06:00, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
