[edit] About Me

My permanent home is in the 41,-86 graticule and go to school (and live) in the 40,-86 graticule. My boyfriend StatMan22 got me interested in geohashing. He recently bought a GPS so we use that on our adventures we do together.

[edit] Equipment

I only have my smartphone which is not as accurate as a straight up GPS, but it will do.


  • iPhone
  • Canon SX210IS
  • Nikon D5100
