[edit] About

I live in Enschede, Netherlands, which is in the south east of N52 E6. Graticules I consider in general are N52 E6, N51 E6, N52 E7 or N51 E7. When I'm in for a big challenge I might go to graticules further away.

I use Geohashing as an excuse for cycling somewhere else then what are my default routes. I cycled London Edinburgh London, report here. I did a XKCD-100 by bike, and cycled back on October 4th 2008 as part of my preparation for that.

Next challenges: completing a Minesweeper achievement, regional hashes of Overijssel(2 out 3), Borken district(done), Netherlands(6/14), Nordrhine-Westphalia(5/13).

My general means of transport until march 2009 was a recumbent bicycle by Nazca.

Currently it is a recumbent bicycle by Challenge. The first ride I did with that was to the hash at february 21st 2009.

I'm not that motivated anymore. I'm still looking at the hashpoints daily, but don't know how often I will still go. --Arvid 20:08, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
