tidy the expeditions bit up[edit]

section added for failed attempts, can folks use the format of; timestamp and put under year heading with name and a little message for successful hashes and put failed attempts to the bottom. Also upcoming notes needs tidying up. Just a tiny bit untidy otherwise, the headings exist for a reason. --The George 21:58, 5 July 2012 (EDT)

Roll call?[edit]

Just had a look at the page history, and apart from myself and Archmage Cat, the only people to have edited the page within the last 12 months are a couple of visitors (MykaDragonBlue who is now actively wandering around mainland Europe, and Sourcerer who is actually based in 52 +1 but has made a recent visit and may at least be back).

Looking at tomorrow's location (today's, if you accept the heretical proposition that being now three hours beyond midnight means something :), which is 'only' 20 or so miles away (doubled, to include the return journey), and maybe worth a drive, I was thinking it would be even more worth it if there was anyone else likely to be around. (My own visit would probably be getting on to 6PM, if at the end of the working day I decided I could wander up there after all. This applies to most possible weekday opportunities, with the possible exception of Thursdays, which have been fairly lucky for me.)

So, it may be a bit late to be sure about '2011-03-30 53 -1', but just wondered who else might be lurking out there... tactically awaiting their very own Couch Potato award to get their own Geohashing career rolling, or something.

So, anybody want to pipe up? :)

I've just arrived (used to live in the Birmingham graticule) and have GPS. If there is a suitable location within West Yorkshire on a weekend then I could be strong-armed into attending. --Rvsmortimer 17:37, 11 April 2011 (EDT)

Welcome. I'm a Sheffielder/S.Yorkshirer but, as you can see, have been known to wander your way. We'll see what happens. 2011-04-10 looked temptingly interesting, maybe even a Hashcard opportunity on the road from where the footpath departed, but don't know if it was good for you and so could have dragged me all that way for a proper Meetup. Or there may even be a handy weekday one (see 2011-04-08) within your reach if after-work timescales worked for you as well as me. Tomorrow (2011-04-13) is probably too much in the midst of a field for me to consider a quick jaunt to the northern edges of the graticule, though... :) --Monty 10:42, 12 April 2011 (EDT)

--The George 21:58, 5 July 2012 (EDT) Also just arrived for University at university halls in city centre. If one is within hour public transport from city centre on a weekend or a non-university day then I'll make my first ever attempt there. I'd feel cheeky asking for a lift so shall just wait.
