[edit] About

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. Since I don't own a drivers license I have to wait for those geohashes that are reachable by bike/foot/publich transportation.
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. :(

  • Distance I cycled just because of geohashing: 103,2 km.
    - Longest expedition: 2011-08-02 53 10: 59,4 km.
    - 100 km cycled in total on 2011-08-02.
