[edit] Introduction

According to my personal blog, I was first bitten by the geohashing bug on 17 June 2009. It doesn't say how I got bitten - probably tragically enough such that I had to erase it from memory - but six days later I embarked on my maiden geohash attempt and the rest, as they say, is history. Thanks to Singapore's tiny size relative to the rest of the graticule, viable geohash locations come few and far in between, but I'll have to make the most of it. (Learning how to pilot a plane or steer a ship would help loads. Especially in attempting any level of Minesweeper Geohash. In addition to that, possibly jungle survival skills.)

I usually go on geohashes alone, save for a few drag-alongs on occasion (mostly my mum - thanks, Ma!).
