I don't exactly know how I learned about geohashing. I'm an avid reader of the XKCD webcomics, so I probably learned about geohashing there. Anyway, I try to use geohashing as an excuse to get out more. I do own a driver's licence by now, but I don't own a car. So I still have to wait for hashes that are reachable by bike or by foot. Also, I moved from Hamburg to Buchholz, so now I'm a resident of the Hamburg, West graticule.
Also I try to drag along my wife to the hashes (she likes the idea of geohashing as well), but since her work schedule keeps her occupied I have to go alone most of the time. :(
