Yes, we should have two separate accounts, but only one of us knows what a computer is.

My name is Callum, I'm the technical brains behind the operation but like James May I have a rubbish sense of direction which is where Josh comes in handy. I guess sticking to the Top Gear references, if I'm James May... Josh would be Jeremy Clarkson - the sort of person who fixes things with a hammer and insists power is the way out of any situation. (Written when Top Gear was a thing)

We have known each other since high school, we have worked together being self employed and play in the same band (and before anyone gets any ideas, we also both have girlfriends (updated 06/02/2015))

Because we live near the coast, some of our graticule is North Sea and, like all Geohashers, at some point we will probably encounter a Fence (dramatic music) so a deployable boat and quadcopter are being developed under top secret conditions.

Small Update - after 2015-02-15 52 1 The quadcopter is moving forwards in development, hopefully it will account for a lack of GPS signal by getting above the tree height and also save us going over and/or through questionable terrain and fences. Maybe I'll post a build log?'

Slightly bigger update then the previous update. Heres a build log sort of thing: http://www.woodenlight.co.uk/quadbuild.html [1]
