- Yeah, wow that was lucky (both the location, and that you know how to use the ice pike and other safety measures!) I tried to send you an email about it the night before, not sure if you got it though. Also I am going to add this to Hall of amazingness under "Lucky Locations"... -- OtherJack (talk) 18:17, 30 November 2013 (EST)
- Also, out of the 8 successful globalhashes, 2 have now happened on the date 30th November (and in a Nordic country, too...) -- OtherJack (talk) 18:20, 30 November 2013 (EST)
- Thanks! I myself couldn't believe the luck I had in many things related to this. Had this been a few days earlier, the ice probably wouldn't have been strong enough. But isn't geohashing mostly about luck anyway? Unless you go Bill Gates Achievement -style. Tilley (talk) 05:59, 1 December 2013 (EST)
- Thanks! Actually that is not so surprising, since the polar regions get more globalhashes than warmer latitudes. Tilley (talk) 05:59, 1 December 2013 (EST)
Congratulations! I also noticed this globalhash, but too many kilometers between Isopekka and global... Very good job! Maybe you are the first who will get two globalhashes, let's wait the second! isopekka 1 December 2013.
Well done, both of you! What amazing expeditions, my warmest congratulations! I saw the global in Finland on my mobile phone and was thinking about all you busy Finnish geohashers, but only today I could check the wiki and was truely amazed. I will just continue to check the global every day, and I'm hoping I will get half as lucky with the location some day :) --LeslieHapablap (talk) 10:17, 2 December 2013 (EST)
- Thank you! By "busy geohashers" you must refer to Pastori, he's alone responsible for over half of the Finnish geohashing expeditions this year (51/97 now). :) Tilley (talk) 13:23, 2 December 2013 (EST)
Well done! As I noted on Tilley's talk page he's in a very lucky location. If the W30 hash - which is his area - falls close to home... then the global hash is also close! That's why the day's hash and the global hash were so close together. It just happens he is located in a 'sweet spot' in that sense. Palmpje (talk) 16:05, 3 December 2013 (EST)
