Welcome to Seattle[edit]

... one of the more active graticules on our planet. It rains a lot here, but that doesn't often deter our intrepid geohashers. Current expedition discussions at the top of the this page. Archived discussions on the past page.

February 21[edit]

Just south of the Trestle Bridge, admission required, only accessible 10am to 4pm. I can't today, but this is a future retrohash if nobody else accepts the challenge. --Thomcat (talk) 14:55, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

February 10, 2018[edit]

An expedition to the banks of a lost river! Pith helmets optional... --Thomcat (talk) 21:58, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

December 11[edit]

In the Google street view, someone is totally checking out the geohash! They were gone by the time Bing came along. --Thomcat (talk) 14:38, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

December 9[edit]

Along Lake Washington Blvd in the Mt Baker neighborhood. Coyotebush (talk) 02:26, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

I plan to make a visit - once I get back on the right continent. My flight arrives at 4:25, then there's customs. Probably around 5:30. --Thomcat (talk) 04:44, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

November 28[edit]

Seriously cool expedition today, at the bottom of the bluffside trail on Maury Island - if it's above water. Low tide was a few hours ago, and again at 7:20 tonight, when it will be quite dark. I plan to hit this as a retrohash someday, probably in the summertime. --Thomcat (talk) 15:22, 28 November 2017 (UTC)

November 27[edit]

In the middle of Genesee Park and Playfield in South Seattle. --Thomcat (talk) 15:02, 27 November 2017 (UTC)

November 8[edit]

Looks to be in the backyard of 18715 Ballinger Way NE in Lake Forest Park. --Thomcat (talk) 14:41, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

October 30[edit]

Holy hash! In the middle of the First Pentecostal Church near Lake Tapps. --Thomcat (talk) 14:46, 30 October 2017 (UTC)

October 10[edit]

On the roadside near the Red Dog Saloon on the Renton-Maple Valley Highway. --Thomcat (talk) 14:53, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

August 5[edit]

Lakeridge Elementary on Mercer Island. Planning wrinkle is that the I-90 bridge is closed 12:45-14:45 for the Blue Angels' show. Coyotebush (talk) 03:04, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

July 29[edit]

Another Bremerton location. Farther from the ferry (hmm, might be a good chance to try out the new fast ferry), but closer to the road. Reachable by public transit or bicycle. Coyotebush (talk)

  • Bike looks hard, bus looks great. I'm going for it. Coyotebush (talk) 20:35, 29 July 2017 (UTC)

May 13[edit]

Within a mile of the Bremerton ferry terminal. Which makes it technically within bicycle range for me. Weather is iffy though, and the front yard the point lies in looks a bit overgrown. Coyotebush (talk) 01:49, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

March 26[edit]

In a Salmon Bay marina. A quick water geohash if someone has a boat; paddling across from the 14th Ave NW ramp would do the trick. --Coyotebush (talk) 03:48, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

Nov 26[edit]

Auburn and Vashon are in the woods, but Saturday is a geohash inside the Dog & Pony Alehouse in Renton. I'll be there at 4:00 for a good 'ol Saturday meetup. You can earn an achievement. --Thomcat (talk) 14:41, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

Nov 5/6[edit]

Two elementary schools - Saturday in Edgewood (east of Tacoma) and Sunday in Rose Hill (east of Kirkland). I'll be at one or two for sure - see you there? --Thomcat (talk) 13:45, 4 November 2016 (UTC)

May 1[edit]

You have your choice of a parking lot in Woodinville or joining a carpool to a globalhash in Astoria. While not locked in yet, I definitely favor the latter. I *suppose* you could also do both. --Thomcat (talk) 18:36, 29 April 2016 (UTC)

Apr 9[edit]

Bellevue Golf Course - anyone up for a round? --Thomcat (talk) 13:54, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

Jan 23/24[edit]

Saturday in the Snoqualmie graticule looks to be quite near the Preston Snoqualmie trail, which apparently has a view of the falls near the Snoqualmie end. Sunday here is in Everett, near Silver Lake, with a 7-11 just across the freeway. Hopefully I can make the latter, weather and plans preclude the former for me. --Thomcat (talk) 09:55, 22 January 2016 (EST)

I did make the latter, and was perhaps the only expedition that day. --Thomcat (talk) 09:52, 25 January 2016 (EST)

Sept 22[edit]

On the grounds of Tacoma Community College, near the Japanese Friendship Garden. Anyone want to give it a visit? --Thomcat (talk) 09:43, 22 September 2015 (EDT)

Sept 18-20[edit]

Friday September 18 is a decent spot, between Murphy's corner and Archbishop Murphy High School. I'll bet those two are related... --Thomcat (talk) 11:14, 18 September 2015 (EDT)

June 8[edit]

Interesting point on Tacoma's waterfront; I encourage someone to go see it. --Thomcat (talk) 09:42, 8 June 2015 (EDT)

May 29-31[edit]

Today's Logan Park looks decent; tomorrow it's probably ambassador near Juanita Woodlands park. Sunday is deep woods on the peninsula; will look elsewhere. --Thomcat (talk) 09:40, 29 May 2015 (EDT)

April 24-26[edit]

Three decent points this weekend, two at opposite corners of the graticule. Friday has us in Olympia, Saturday near Snoqualmie (in a farmer's field), and Sunday right downtown. Definitely going to the last one, but ping here if you are interested in the other two. --Thomcat (talk) 09:41, 24 April 2015 (EDT)

April 11[edit]

April 10th and 12th have that edge-of-the graticule minesweeper appeal, but are otherwise unattractive. April 11th is on Seattle Hill Road in Mill Creek - definitely worth an afternoon visit. Say, 4pm? --Thomcat (talk) 11:00, 10 April 2015 (EDT)

Christmas Eve & Christmas, 2014[edit]

Center graticule means splash for us, so unless you are a fish, I wish you all a Merry Christmas! --Thomcat (talk) 09:38, 24 December 2014 (EST)

Goodbye peoples!![edit]

I am moving away from this graticule on Monday the 1st... and none of the points through then look convenient to me, so I probably won't see any of you in person. It's been a great couple of years though! -- OtherJack (talk) 14:06, 29 August 2014 (EDT)

May you either find better geohashing... or take your curse with you! :) --Thomcat (talk) 21:51, 29 August 2014 (EDT)
It will be the former! -- OtherJack (talk) 22:07, 29 August 2014 (EDT)
Farewell, Jack! I'm glad I was able to meet you--and hit the July 10 globalhash! Truly an epic adventure, as hashing goes. :) -- Rex Wolf (talk) 00:34, 30 August 2014 (EDT)
I know, and it was great to meet you too! Keep hashing in Vancouver (and try to bring the others there out of hibernation...) -- OtherJack (talk) 23:02, 2 September 2014 (EDT)
