 January 28
Snow conditions and time permitting I'm going to try the hash over in the Snoqualmie graticule just east of us, on Tiger Mountain. See here for more info. If I actually attempt to do this I'll probably make it up there around 4:30 or 5 pm. --OtherJack
 February 11
Green Lake geohash!!!! And it's a Saturday to boot. I am going to see if the park rents those paddleboats or other boats this time of year. Or, if you have a boat, please feel free to join this thread! --OtherJack
Never mind, boat rentals are off for the winter, but will still try to wade / hope for other geohashers with boat... --OtherJack 11:28am Friday (PST)
I'll try to do these things at 4pm, just to clarify. --OtherJack 11:44am Saturday (PST)
 February 20
 March 17
I may try a St. Paddy's Day hash in Lake Stevens at 4pm - it's on what google maps satellite shows as a construction site, so might be a finished something by now. Not sure if I'll go though. Post here or on the page if you're interested --OtherJack 12:45pm Friday March 16
 March 23-25
Friday's is out in a field somewhere that may-or-may-not-be thwarted by clear and obvious No Trespassing signs. We could probably gain easy access to Friday's in the daylight, but I'm not sure I'd risk getting shot at at night...which is a shame, because I'm sure there would be somewhere nice to camp around here too. It's about 250m from a road, right past obvious houses, but approaching from the northwest could work I guess (if you're a ninja).
Saturday's looks like it's along a not-quite-private road, which may or may not be in someone's back yard; Bing Maps has more hopeful roads than Google Maps, and it looks like they go around it rather helpfully. Google's map view shows a big, unoccupied looking land plat. This is reachable. It's also about 3km from Friday's.
Sunday's is a bit west of Bremerton, and looks like it has alligators, about 30m off "shore" if you could call it that. A small kayak should suffice.
Not sure I can make any of these though. --Traveller 13:37, 23 March 2012 (EDT)
I could go Saturday but wouldn't be able to leave Seattle til after 3. Today I'm working and Sunday I'm doing something else most of the day (and don't have a kayak or anything of the sort...) - OtherJack 14:07, 23 March 2012 (EDT)
Likewise on the busy-ness here. Friday = can't leave 'til 8:30PM, Saturday = need to be in Bellevue 9:30-11:00 so no camping (unless it's a super early morning), Sunday = need to be in Lynnwood at 3:00 onward. I'm up for Saturday if we're real excited about going, but it might be worth it to hold off for a later event on our side of the water.
Then again, if a west-side hasher wants to show up, I'm all for heading over there. --Traveller 14:27, 23 March 2012 (EDT)
I'm also kind of on the fence... don't really feel like driving there and i'd be leaving way too late for biking to be fun. If you drive there I might hitch a ride. I don't think there are any kitsap or olympic area hashers though unfortunately... - OtherJack 14:46, 23 March 2012 (EDT)
Alright, let's just organize a picnic on this side of the sound then! Got a preference for place or time? Either side of the lake works for me. --Traveller 15:05, 23 March 2012 (EDT)
Sure, why not - I'm going to be in downtown Seattle tomorrow afternoon anyway so we could just say 4pm somewhere near there. I'm not big on cheesecake but pie is great. (Not that you're required to bring it... I won't be able to bring anything that awesome.) OtherJack 15:30, 23 March 2012 (EDT)
 April 26
Today it's on northbound I-5, after 599 but before Boeing Access Road / MLK, in the second-to-rightmost lane. Just a heads up if anyone was going to drive that way today. (I'm not unfortunately.) OtherJack 13:11, 26 April 2012 (EDT)
 May 4-5
Today's (Fri) is in a front yard in Madrona, I'm going for it after work! See the page for more details. I'm up for either the Seattle or Snoqualmie graticule ones tomorrow (Sat). Leaning towards Snoqualmie, as I could bike there on quieter roads. OtherJack 13:26, 4 May 2012 (EDT)
All right, I'm definitely going for Snoqualmie tomorrow (Sat)...
 Mouseover Day (Saturday, May 26)
 Friday, June 1
Today's is in the left-turn lane of 169 a few miles east of Renton, if anyone was going to drive that way anyhow... --OtherJack 13:00, 1 June 2012 (EDT)
 June 20
For the Longest Day, our geohash is in the woods. According to Zillow, it is this  property. Looking at the birds eye view, there are a lot of high trees. Anyone going? --Thomcat 11:46, 20 June 2012 (EDT)
- Long way to go on a weeknight for me, by default I wasn't going to. Is there a longest day ribbon or something? --OtherJack 14:18, 20 June 2012 (EDT)
- For me also. No ribbon - yet. --Thomcat 17:53, 20 June 2012 (EDT)
 June 21
Oh, I wish I had a day off - this is at the top of Squak Mountain, and would be a fun (and challenging) expedition. --Thomcat 18:28, 21 June 2012 (EDT)
 June 22-24
Unlike the normal Seattle geohash weekend (water, water, water) this weekend it's Woods, Woods, and Woods (the latter private property on Vashon Island). Proposed Saturday 4:00 meetup location - Math 'n' Stuff
- I could do that - I've never actually gone in there, even though it's only a half mile from my house. May still try to bike to the Sunday one and ask whoever's home, though. --OtherJack 13:10, 22 June 2012 (EDT)
 June 29-July 1
We end June with the left side of the graticule, and that means island, water, and the edge of a lake on the peninsula. My alternate proposals are the Olympic Sculpture Park - special exhibit Encontro das Águas (Encounter with Waters); or the Heaven and Earth Exhibition at Carkeek Park. Got another suggestion? Post it here! --Thomcat 10:00, 29 June 2012 (EDT)
 July 6-8
Friday night at the Best Buy in Silverdale, Saturday in the woods, and Sunday in the Cedar River. No Saturday alternate for me - I'll be working a baseball game at Husky Stadium in Seattle (not the one that's half torn down). 4:00 would be roughly the 3rd or 4th inning, if you want to drop by and say hi. --Thomcat 10:04, 6 July 2012 (EDT)
I'll be busy elsewhere on Saturday but I'm thinking of trying to hit that Best Buy tonight after work - it's not a very long ride from the Bremerton ferry dock... --OtherJack 12:55, 6 July 2012 (EDT)
 July 13-15
Fairly close to Bremerton tonight (south of Beaver Dam lake); your Bastille day hash is near the northwest corner (just off the Beaver Valley road); Sunday is east of Shelton along the peninsula (which has an East Beaver Lane, though it's across the Hammersley inlet).
You don't think that cafe will be a little crowded on its namesake day? I could be convinced though. Also looking into trying to ride to Sunday's Snoqualmie hashpoint, in what looks like a dairy farm driveway just outside Enumclaw... -- OtherJack 17:55, 13 July 2012 (EDT)
 July 20-22
Friday and Sunday are out on the peninsula - today is particularly wet. Regarding Saturday, in the far south end, take a look at the satellite photo. What is that thing just SW of the hashpoint? AG link None of the surrounding roads show up on the google or peeron map either. OSM thinks it's part of the airbase. --Thomcat 09:41, 20 July 2012 (EDT)
- Zillow and Bing maps confirm that it's part of the military base; google needs to get their maps up to snuff. Street view shows the roads leading to it as fenced also. My guess - a former military camp site - current zillow shows it to be a flat field. Another Saturday out of bounds! --Thomcat 10:45, 20 July 2012 (EDT)
Sunday's actually looks quite reachable, in a short driveway of some sort very close to Bremerton. Maybe I'll go - will post if I decide to. -- OtherJack 14:21, 20 July 2012 (EDT)
 January 22
A great spot for a water acheivement. Were it not January I'd bring my Hobie out there, but it is and I'd rather be inside. Anyone up for planned-location meetup one of these days? Jack 02:18, 22 January 2011 (EST)
 January 27
Some of us might get this one by accident. It's right on I-405 Northbound, left lanes, by exit 22 (a little south of the 522 interchange). --Traveller 16:48, 27 January 2011 (EST)
 February 5
Again in the water, south of Magnolia. If multiple other people are interested, I'll go for meeting at the nearest point on the shore. Jack 09:59, 4 February 2011 (EST)
- Or maybe at the park on the bluff; I'm not sure if that beach is accessible. The tide won't be that high but will be rising. Jack 10:07, 4 February 2011 (EST)
 May 27
This Saturday (tomorrow) is in Kirkland, which is almost Seattle. Any interest? Jack 21:32, 27 May 2011 (EDT)
 January 5
Middle of Lake Washington. Considering a kayak rental from Agua Verde. Drowned rat would probably apply also - a misty rain has been falling all morning.
 March 20, 2010
It's right near downtown. It's been a long time since I've gone to one; anyone else interested? Jack 20:38, 20 March 2010 (UTC)
 Meetup on March 23
I'll be in town on March 23rd and wouldn't mind trying a geohash or designated alternate in the morning. Is there anybody in the graticule interested in meeting up? - Elbie 22:05, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
 Meetup on April 24
I think we finally have a more centalized location! We should see if we can manage an xkcd-style (4:00 PM Saturday) meetup this weekend. I'm in if anyone else wants to do an expedition. Is anyone interested? Origo 22:14, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
 Meetup on May 1, 2010
I'm going to try and be there at 4pm... don't know if I can make it all the way to the waterfront without property issues... hopefully it'll work! Hope to see someone there. It's on a bay in the south Kitsap just across the Narrows Bridge from Tacoma. - OtherJack 1:33 am Pacific, May 1, 2010
 Meetup on May 8, 2010
I intend to be there at 4pm... looks like a pleasant drive! Hope to see folks. - OtherJack 12:40pm Pacific, Friday May 7, 2010
 Meetup on Saturday, May 22, 2010
It looks like an interesting location to try and reach tomorrow... in the woods off of a high-tension corridor in south Kitsap. I'm going to try to ferry/bike there. - OtherJack 10:50pm Pacific, Friday, May 21, 2010
 June 5
I think I might be able to attend a meetup on Saturday... looks like it's near some shipping warehouses, next to a road. -Origo
I'll try to be there too... it looks like it'll be a lot nicer out than today, great for biking. I have a ton of work to do though... so I'll go if I've gotten enough done. Which would be great. -OtherJack
 June 26
Never mind, the US World Cup game's today. Not enough time afterwards. -OtherJack
 August 3rd Globalhash in Ocean Shores
Not that I can make it, but I thought if any of you watching this page might consider a trip to the coast to reach a Globalhash, check out Talk:Ocean Shores, Washington#2010-08-03 Globalhash. --Wenslayer 16:43, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
 August 21, 2010
It's right in the middle of the street in Lacey, very close to the Olympia/Lacey train station... so perfect excuse for me to visit Olympia. I will try to be at the hashpoint at 4, though it might be 5-10 minutes earlier... wait, make that 15-20 minutes earlier... say, 3:40 or 3:45. OtherJack
 August 28, 2010
This week it's on someone's front lawn? or maybe just in front of their front fence? in Parkland, near PLU south of Tacoma. I plan on biking there and being there at 4pm. -OtherJack
 January 16-19
Welcome to the holiday weekend! Saturday's geohash is nice and dry, near Green River Community College. I'll be there at 4:00, assuming I can tear myself away from ConQuest NW. If you come down to the convention, I'll be around the Flying Buffalo booth, helping run a Lost Worlds game. Otherwise, see you at the geohash! --Thomcat 14:43, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
 January 23-25
A steep forested hillside, Puget Sound, and restricted Fort Lewis. Not a good weekend. Mark your calendars for the 31st, though - I feel in my bones that good coordinates will bless us with a great meetup spot. --Thomcat 14:48, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
 January 30-February 1
Friday on South Vashon is the best of the lot. Saturday is on the wet side of downtown Everett, and Sunday is near McCord - or is it restricted property? --Thomcat 15:14, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
 February 6-8
Friday is a bus lane on I-405. No way I could make it at 4:00, but I'd like to find public transport to take me through there earlier in the day. Saturday is (again) in the water just off Everett. Sunday looks to be in woods behind a rather large mansion. Will research. --Thomcat 14:45, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
- Friday, if the southbound bus is on time, you will be at the stop at 4:01pm. Perhaps passing through the hash point at 4:00 precisely? The last earlier option goes through there in about 35 minutes. --Thomcat 15:03, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
- Sunday is definitely private property, namely the estate of this huge house (thanks Zillow). For an estimated $880,500 you could have a couch-potato geohash.
 February 13-16
Holiday weekend, how's your hash?
Friday and Saturday are Woodinville and Bothell, and both close to Thomcat's work. Sunday it's a hillside in Gig Harbor, and Monday Bainbridge island (in Island Center park). Only Sunday looks truly difficult. Time to research Friday and Saturday. --Thomcat 15:14, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
 February 27-March 01
February 27 location in the Mt. Rainier graticule is too close to pass up on a beautiful day like this, especially since I haven't been to Mount Rainier National Park and it's a virgin graticule. I'll be driving, probably leaving home around 10:00 and arriving NLT 11:00 depending on how badly I get lost. February 28 location is about two miles from my home, so I'll probably walk (I hope the weather isn't too bad) and will arrange to be there at 4:00 PM. March 01 is no good for me. New User (talk) 14:56, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
 March 6-8
Thanks to New User for filling in while I was off the continent. Another geohasher I need to meet, although today's Whidbey Island hash won't be it. Just south of us the hash is just south of Fort Lewis in a decidedly bare looking patch of land. Saturday is just SE of that for both graticules - a water hash for Seattle. Sunday is in Hood Canal. Who's got their water wings? --Thomcat 15:00, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
- Actually, Sunday in Snoqualmie doesn't look too bad - Duthie Hill Park is a mountain biking park. Please post a trail map here if you find one. No idea if the hash is on one of the trails, but it looks like a fun expedition regardless! --Thomcat 15:06, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
 Neighbourly Teasing
"Removed non-expeditions. Seattle has only one in March 2009."
... which, it should be noted, was achieved by a Vancouver graticulean! --Robyn
 March 13-15
Friday's geohash is not-close-enough to the Edmonds Kingston ferry run. Well, close enough to be in danger of being struck by a ferry, but not close enough to ride through it on the ferry, assuming they follow the dotted line closely. The Saturday or Pi-Day geohash looks pretty good - someone's backyard in upper Factoria/Newcastle, and very near Cougar Mountain. I'm not that familiar with the trails, but it would be a nice combined expedition to visit the house at, oh, say 1:59pm, then go for a hike in the nearby wilderness. This alternate meetup time would definitely count for Centurion. For Sunday I have to ping HarlequinsDad, because this geohash is in the Shilshole bay marina. --Thomcat 13:47, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
- Cool! We're planning a "Pi Day" Geohash too...now to bake a pie :-) --NCBears 14:25, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
- It will be a wet geohash, today - but that's Seattle! --Thomcat 15:18, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
 March 20-21
It's close to the Edmonds/Kingston ferry, but it's closer to the
Victoria/Seattle ferry Victoria Clipper... How much does it cost to take it? Would we need passports?
- Not to get *to* Canada. Getting back, though.... Actually, just checked the website - no passport required until June 1 2009. You will need good ID though. --Thomcat 21:37, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
 April 3-5
Friday is in the Meadowdale neighborhood, up somebody's driveway I think - will hit Zillow. Saturday NE of Shelton, or in Snoqualmie on some sort of vehicle race area? Hard to tell from the satellite, but it's got tracks baby! Sunday it's in the drink near Whidbey Island. --Thomcat 13:45, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
 April 17-19
Celebrate your income tax return by buying a kayak or renting a boat, because that's what it will take to get to today's wet geohash. Saturday is near Olympia somewhere (Hi Marcy!), and Sunday is next to an ice-cream-cone shaped pool near Northgate in North Seattle. I'm just trying to figure out how to make Saturday work in the
virgin recently deflowered North Cascades graticule... --Thomcat 13:46, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
- Are you thinking of trying the Sunday? That's a motel or something, isn't it? It looks accessible. -Robyn 18:59, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
 April 24-26
Was hoping for a good Mount Rainier or Mount St Helens geohash, but not this weekend. Friday and Sunday are off on the peninsula. Saturday is a nice park in Burien.
I'll be there at the 4:00 meetup time... Correction, I will be umpiring a baseball game at that time. I hope to make it over earlier in the day, though. Propose a time and I can meet you! --Thomcat 19:57, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
 May 30
I am tempted to visit this guy's House at 4:00 today.
 June 12-14
Hope you like malls - or swimming. Friday it's at Puyallup's South Hill Mall. Saturday, just west of Vashon Island. Sunday, it's another mall near Olympia, I think. Yes, I'm not dead yet. --Thomcat 13:42, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
 August 01
2009-08-01_47_-122 - Geohashers from Vancouver stopping through on a saturday morning. Hope to see you there! Also, are there any plans in the works for a PAX geohash again this year? --Xore 22:55, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
 August 14-16
Saturday's meetup is in the water of Lake Washington off Leschi Park. Your chance to get a water geohash using a boat - anyone available? Friday and Sunday are up on the peninsula, again. --Thomcat 14:00, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm going to be visiting the area (and free) on the 16th. At this time, I'm thinking I'll swing by Leschi Park in the afternoon and do a retrohash of Saturday. I don't have a boat, but I'll get as close as I can. -- Jhon 07:00, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
- What time, Jhon? Will see if I can get down to meet you. :) --Thomcat 15:11, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
 September 4-7
Friday is behind the Magnolia Self Storage here in Seattle. Saturday a steep hillside near Highway 101 on the peninsula. Sunday is also on the peninsula, and Monday is the parking lot for Endeavor Middle School in Milton. A good Saturday alternative is just south of Olympia Airport. A very remote suggestion for Sunday is 7800' up the North Mowich Glacier in the Mount Rainier graticule. --Thomcat 14:28, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
- This being PAX weekend, might i recommend a saturday alternate meetup on the corner of 7th and Pike? (47.61160968, -122.33318210) There's a presentation at 4:30 i don't want to miss. Maybe if anyone is interested we could do something sunday also? Let me know -- Xore
 2009-10-17 - Gig Harbor
I live pretty close, and will probably be around if any other Seattle geohashers want to show.
 Dear God, they are all so far away!!
Gas concerns rule me out for this weekend (5/30 to 6/01). Mayhaps those who are going can offer carpooling services?
Carpooling should always be part of the plans! We should start hashing it out Friday morning for a Saturday trip. This city has a reputation to uphold, after all. --Leoger
 Saturday June 21st Geohash
So, for the first time in awhile, I have a free Saturday (I think). I definitely would like to make an excursion to wherever the Seattle GeoHash is that day or an alternate. Morethen willing to pick up people and/or carpool. Takers? - Narfy
 July 11-13
- Saturday is about the best water location possible: in Lake Washington in beautiful weather, and yet far enough offshore that it's impressive. And if we don't all reach the exact location, Madrona Park is good. Jack 06:58, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
 July 19th-20th
Olympia? It's in Olympia all weekend. Anyone know if that Saturday is accessible? I wanted to go to the hash on the way north, not backtrack to Olympia. -Robyn
Saturday should be accessible, although in the wilds of the woods so wear appropriate hiking boots. I will ironically be in Seattle that day.
- I like the south end, but admit I am tempted to try for Saturday's North Cascades hash which is not far from Granite Falls. --Thomcat 03:29, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
- Okay, we'll aim there too. -Robyn
 Weekend August 1-3
- Friday 8/1 - restricted, unless you have access to Fort Lewis
- Saturday 8/2 - Hartstene Island, looks reachable
- Sunday 8/3 - Puget Sound
Neighboring graticules don't look much better for this weekend. Enjoy Seafair instead I guess.
I suggest that we meet up on Saturday at Gasworks Park for Tour de Fat, a free event hosted by New Belgium Brewery. Bicycles, circus arts, amazing bands, and beer. This was one of my favorite events of 2007 and I have high hopes for 2008's version. I would also suggest moving up the meeting time to noon so there's plenty of events remaining. -Marcy
 August 8th-10th
- Friday it's in the drink (Pleasane Harbor), right off 101, with a view of Hood Canal.
- Saturday's meetup appears to be private property, but near Carbonado, and on the way to the north flanks of Mount Rainier. I can't make a meetup, though - I'll be out of town.
- Sunday is restricted, except for those navy guys maybe. Bangor Naval Submarine base.
 Free movies in Bremerton
Friday Saturday, August 2nd
Princess Bride and Grease!
First Movie starts at 9:20 p.m.
It's right near the ferry terminal from Seattle. And it's free. But you have to go home, when it's over. My apartment is too small and dirty for guests. But if you feel the need (the need for
speed the Dread Pirate Roberts!), you should be there.
 August 22-24
All south end. Saturday is in the middle of Long Lake east of Olympia. Sunday in Seattle is just off the railroad tracks near the Tacoma Narrows bridge, and probably not public property. Still, could be fun to organize a train trip for geohashing on Sunday. Will look into that. --Thomcat 13:51, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
- Amtrak Cascades is the train in question. The southend crew could take the #506 leaving Olympia at 2:03pm and arriving in Seattle at 3:55pm. All geohashers could take the #509 leaving Seattle at 5:30pm and arriving in Olympia at 6:54pm. Finally the northend crew could take the #508, leaving Olympia at 8:03pm and arriving in Seattle at 9:45pm. Just one problem -- the key train (#509) is sold out. --Thomcat 15:34, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
Somebody proposed an alternate for Friday (8/22), which also looks to be private property. If this is your house, tell us all about it, and invite us over for couch potato geohashing. We've plenty of games! --Thomcat 19:31, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
 Movies on the Pedestal
Found out about this through CouchSurfing, and thought that you guys might want to hit a free movie if you're in town. This Thursday it's 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith', and then the last one in the programme is 'Hot Fuzz', so that should be fun (and I'm actually gonna be around for it! WOOHOO!!). Not sure if this justifies its own page or not... just figured this is a good way to notify people of it. Move this if you want to. --Lady Pennywhistle 18:52, 19 August 2008 (local)
 August 29-31 + September 1
All PAX planning and discussion is at Talk:2008-08-30 47 -122.
 September 5-7
Friday is on Bremerton's peninsula. Sunday is Lake Tapps (splash). Saturday is in somebody's yard, but may I respectfully propose this. Saturday's point in Mt. St. Helens, Washington is in the foothills of Mount Rainier, and looks to be close to a logging road. How about meeting up in Eatonville, then driving and/or biking our way up that road, then hiking in to the trees at the exact point. 3:00 in the park, then leave for the point from there. Expedition discussion on 2008-09-06 46 -122. If you are feeling really crazy, Sunday's point in the same graticule is near the crater, and a pretty easy hike from the forest road. --Thomcat 14:10, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
 September 16
The first spot that showed up this morning was 47.765857, -122.212144; 4.4 km from where I work. Since I haven't been to a geohash in almost two weeks, that would have been great. By the time I finished editing the page, though, the spot had moved to Bremerton. Nukewaste, enjoy! --Thomcat 14:57, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
 September 19-21
Ahoy and avast, maties! No idea where the winds will blow the coordinates today, but at first sighting they are mostly in the sou-westers. I carved a temporary page to keep an eye on the scalawags. Perhaps by noon we'll be able to settle on a Saturrrrrday meetup spot. --Thomcat 14:31, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
 September 26-28
So Many Islands
Friday's island spot is off Toe Jam Hill Road on Bainbridge Island, and doesn't look too accessible on the satellite photo. Saturday's island spot is Possession Estates on Whidbey island, not far from the ferry and a beach park nearby. Sunday is in the middle of the Puyallup river, and not an island in sight.
Need a carpool on Saturday? We can meet at the Mukilteo ferry I think... discussion on the meetup page.
 October 3-5
Friday very close to downtown - but in the Sound unfortunately. Saturday is off in the wilds of the western peninsula, and Sunday is in Commencement bay. After two in a row October 1 and 2, I somehow knew I'd have no luck on the weekend.
I'll leave it to our man in Bremerton to report on Saturday's worthiness. No geohashing for me, though. --Thomcat 21:05, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
 October 10-12
Sparkamus Prime is up in Vancouver on Saturday, and the geohash is so easy it's trivial. Beats our hash near Lake Tapps. I would go north, but I am headed to Leavenworth of Octoberfest instead - along with trying to hit my third, fourth, and fifth geohashes in a row. --Thomcat 05:38, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
 October 17-19
South end hashes for Friday and Saturday; Sunday is just south of downtown Seattle (sodo they call it), and I couldn't miss that one. I'm open to Saturday suggestions - it might be fun to try and visit a neighboring graticule. --Thomcat 13:44, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
 October 24-26
Friday northwest of Bremerton airport, Sunday southeast of Bremerton airport. For Saturday it's Tacoma, the north side of someones house or barn. Couple of nice parks nearby if somebody wants to setup an alternate. For me, it's halloween fun with the kids - pumpkins, merchant trick or treating, and the like. Cheers!--Thomcat 16:03, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
 November 15
Today (Saturday the 15th) it's pretty near Seattle, near Cougar Mountain, and it looks like a nice day. If other people are thinking about going, I'm up for it a hike there. Jack 20:47, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
 November 7-9
Friday it's a ways Southwest of Bremerton, Saturday near a little town called South Prairie. Sunday is offshore between Edmonds and Mukilteo, straight west of Meadowdale Park. I still like the idea of visiting the mountains to the south, but to do that *and* get credit for the graticule, the point has to be towards the northend - highway 165 or 706 for Mount Rainier, for instance. Any ideas about this weekend? Post 'em here. --Thomcat 14:58, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
 November 17-24
Not that I have anything against Hood Canal or the land west of Bremerton, but come on -
four five geohashes in a row there? The weekend is far more favorable, with a Saturday geohash in an open field between Issaquah and Cedar Grove, and Sunday's geohash in Farrel McWhirter park in Redmond. I'll see if I can scare up a trail map link for this page. See you Saturday at 4?

 Turkey day weekend
I was out of town, and failed at a pair of geohashes in the process :( Anyhow, back now, and Sunday's hash is perfect! Let's plan to be there at 2:00, so we have a little daylight to chat, etc. --Thomcat 15:24, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
 December 4-7
Friday and Sunday are towards the graticule edges, with Saturday right in the middle. It's an apparently vacant lot, according to Zillow, just east of this house. I'll be busy with a play rehearsal at 4:00, but can probably be there mid-day. Anyone else interested? --Thomcat 14:48, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
Possibly. Anyone else? It's walking distance from the Northgate light-rail station, but that one won't be in service by tomorrow (I believe it's scheduled for 2020). Jack 16:54, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
- Going to firm up my plans and call it noon. Jack, I don't even know *where* the Northgate Light Rail station is supposed to go. Have to research that I think... --Thomcat 17:14, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
 December 12-14
Friday an easy hash at Marymoor park. Saturday a dentist's office in Lacey. Sunday a golf course, also near Olympia. I'm busy this weekend, but considering a midnight Marymoor hash tonight. --Thomcat 15:53, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
I'll go to Saturday or Sunday's meetup if anyone else will be there. Come on, you know you want the golf course award! --Marcy 08:16, 12 December 2008 (Pacific)
- I don't know, Marcy - is there a postcard available for that course? --Thomcat 17:26, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
This sucks. How do we get to those tiny little islands??
- Row boat?
- What if we instead head east to the next graticule when the point falls in or west of Puget Sound? It's always fun to go up to the mountains. - Cahlroisse
- There's mountains to the west as well... Puget sound is basically the eye of a geological hurricane. Everywhere you go, there be mountains. So don't discount the west side trips. - --Nukewaste 22:21, 28 May 2008 (UTC)
We should plan to have one or two outings to the [Mt. Rainier] or [Mt. St. Helens] graticules one Saturday or another when they fall within the parks at an accessible area.--Cahlroisse 05:05, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
- It would be a short notice thing, but yeah, I'm in! --Thomcat 22:49, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

 Skyline shot
BTW, this is one of the coolest grat pages in the wiki, IMHO. Is there any way you can make the skyline picture span across the whole top of the page, about 2x it's current size? -- Jevanyn 18:02, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
- The original is about twice that size. Earlier, I had problems with the grat map colliding with the picture. That is fixed now - but is it too big? Look at this version then vote here. --Thomcat 19:08, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
 Most recent on top?
There are two kinds of people: those who don't, and those who say things in the wrong order.
FOR!!! Most recent on top, so you can see what is going on on a tiny screen, without scrolling. - Robyn.
AGAINST!!! ...haha, yeah, metahumor aside, whatever. I'll be the cog in your machine. Let's do it. --Nukewaste 10:58, 10 July 2008 (UTC)
Hey, a few other pages have been reversing their entries, putting the most recent on top. For or against? --Thomcat 03:55, 9 July 2008 (UTC)
FOR!!! Although as long as it's a sane order, it doesn't bug me too much. Brakos82 20:00, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
 First Thursday chatter
- Seattle Art Museum Downtown Seattle 10 AM - 9 PM
--Anyone up for meeting here this Thursday, July 3rd?
- EMP and Sci-Fi Museum Seattle Center 5 PM - 8 PM
I think Thursday is the 3rd of July, but Nukewaste will probably be going to Seattle, so may visit the SAM and the SAAM, and then the SFM in the evening.
I am definitely heading to the Sci-Fi Museum on Thursday JULY (PFFF) 3rd! I've been meaning to do this major geekout for two years now and I haven't had the chance. I'd love for everyone to come! - Sparkamusprime
- Somebody buy Sparkamus a calendar at the gift shop ;) --Thomcat 21:17, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
- Damnit, it's July. I hate that. You be quiet. :P Sparks
- WutWut? Tentative times - 3pm at Seattle Art Museum; 6pm at EMP/SciFi Museum --Thomcat 19:46, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
- See you there, wutwut! Probably more like 5.30pm at the EMP/SciFi! Sparks
 What's happened to this Graticule?
You have now fallen to 4th place in Most Coordinates Reached. Do you guys want to admit that the Germans are better Geohashers? I know that you guys are frozen in for the winter but 1 or 2 more Geohashes could move you guys back to second place... Come on... Get Geohashing! --NWoodruff 21:40, 7 December 2009 (UTC)
- I've been to a handful of geohashes but haven't documented anything here. New Years resolution - upload my pictures and write up my expeditions. --Thomcat 17:11, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
