  • 2008-06-07 Champaign/Urbana, Illinois - Brett made it to the coordinates after an easy drive north from Champaign. He expected to meet other geohashers, but none showed up. He left a flag marking the spot.
  • 2008-06-07 Edmonton Alberta, Canada - 2 Groups met up at the geohash which landed in the back yard of a private acreage
  • 2008-06-07 Kiev, Ukraine in a forestlet between two fields not far from Mriya (The Dream) resort. grep was here ;)
  • 2008-06-07 Eindhoven, Netherlands in farmland south of Tilburg. Reached by Paul
  • 2008-06-07 Gelsenkirchen, NRW, Germany - On a football field very close to Gelsenkirchen railway station. Kliment and TinoM will be there. Food will be available.
  • 2008-06-07 Malmö, Sweden - It's near road 101 on the opposite side from Vellinge golf club.
  • 2008-06-07 Santa Barbara - Wilderness near Ojai. Jareds will probably be there. UPDATE: He's incompetent. He thought he could get within 2 miles of the coordinates via "Sisar Rd", but it turns into an unpaved road/trail that is soon blocked by a gate, which is just as well since it goes through a creek. This was 8 miles from the point he intended to leave the "road" following the "road" itself, though only four miles as the crow flies, but he is not a crow. He had enough to drink to continue on foot, but turned back at 5pm since he was way late and wouldn't be able to reach the coordinates and return to his car until after dark but he had no flashlight. Some cyclists passed him on the trail, but he was solving a Rubik's cube and believes they would have stopped if they were xkcd readers.
