Woo! Hawaii! Congraticulations! You also earned the West geohash achievement if you want to claim it! -- relet 04:04, 4 April 2012 (EDT)

Noooooooooo! I was _so_ planning on going on holiday there and getting that virgin ;) Congrats! - Mampfred 09:42, 2 May 2012 (EDT)

Personally, I do NOT consider this one as reached. If I counted every hash I was less than 20m away from as reached, I'd have many more on my list. :(( Rincewind 16:03, 2 May 2012 (CET)

On second thought, I'll have to agree with Rincewind. Quoting from the FAQ:
Q: How close to do you need to get for success?
A: This seems to be a grey area. The No Batteries method would allow positional errors dependent on the maps or 
   instruments used. GPS receivers might get you to within 3 or 4 metres. A common method used is "within the error circle 
   of my GPS", so if your GPS accuracy is 3m, having a "distance to point" of 2m would be considered "there". If 50 people turn up, 
   are they all at the hashpoint? As it's called a meetup, perhaps success should be defined in terms of whether you would actually 
   meet someone else at the hashpoint. You'd need to be within hailing distance. A common answer to this question is "You should be 
   reasonably certain that there are no more significant obstacles between you and the uncertainty bubble of the geohash."
So 30 yards (or something like 27 meters?) isn't quite within the uncertainty of the GPS accuracy. And if you couldn't get through the bushes then that IS a significant obstacle in your way. Any other thoughts? - Mampfred 11:20, 2 May 2012 (EDT)
