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)
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)
