Go Go Globalhash!

Finally -- a globalhash in the UK. But it's at completely the wrong end of the country for me. I'm almost tempted to go for it, though, but I just wouldn't have the time (or stamina) to make the required 1550km road trip. I don't think flights and a car rental would be feasible at short notice. And I'd have to actually get to the hash in the dark. And then be at work at 06:30 the following morning. Don't think it's going to happen.  :-( -- Benjw 20:00, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Quit your job. :-) I think we need the concept of a Global Stupidity Distance -- how close does the globalhash have to be before you'll go tearing off after it, traveling hundreds of miles on short notice? --starbird 02:25, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
Well, if it had been anywhere in England I would have gone. But northeast Scotland is just a little too far. And the annoying thing is that I had Thursday as my day off work this week (which meant I could possibly have made it to the hash on Wednesday), but I'd found I'd double-booked myself this weekend, so I'd asked at short notice for myday off to be changed to Saturday about eight hours before the globalhash was announced. Aarggh! -- Benjw 04:48, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

If someone doesn't get there the whole geohashing world will be disappointed with the UK.
