[edit] Virgin Graticule Achievement

Shouldn't Bobbert have this achievement for 2008-06-01 59 17? As far as I see it's the first documented one in this graticule. --HiroProtagonist 17:30, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

But it says "Coordinates not reached". -- relet 17:56, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
The coordinates are in the middle of the lake, and the report only states he took pictures of the spot. --Ekorren 18:53, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

When I started geohashing there were three expeditions on this graticule page, none of them actually state they reached the point but two of them isn't stating they didn't reach it either. Since then I have reached three hashes in the graticule so someone have been first, but we don't know who. Bobbert isn't the one though since that expedition clearly say the point wasn't reached. --Vswe 19:38, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, sorry. I didn't read it carefully enough at all. But the picture of 2008-06-22 59 17 really fits well to the Google Maps picture, so I would assume that's coordinates reached - but of course, that's no real proof... --HiroProtagonist 00:12, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
Yeah I thought so too when I checked before but now I'm not too sure. You can't see any houses on the image but you can see the water, there should be a road,a field, some houses and some trees between the hashpoint and the water. --Vswe 06:59, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

When searching I actually found two other expeditions in the graticule that even have GPS proof. Doesn't help us really (since those were after the unknown ones) but it means I weren't first. --Vswe 07:12, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

Those weren't there when I created the pages from information found on the Stockholm page - they came about a year later. --Ekorren 17:54, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Visitor

Greetings! I will be headed over to Örnsköldsvik for work. I will be in town for a non-insignificant amount of time, and if time allows, I could probably make a journey down to Stockholm on a weekend while I am there in Sweden. Would any of you locals care to meet up if I were to head down there? I also plan to stay on for a bit on vacation after the work is done, so a meet up could be possible then. --aperfectring 13:52, 10 April 2011 (EDT)
