Introduction[edit]

Warning: May contain nuts.

Ekorren - that's the european brown squirrel, scientifically sciurus vulgaris. Jumps around, collects various stuff, hides things and never finds all of it again.

I'm mostly hashing by bike, so I'm somehow restricted to the nearer surroundings of my home coordinates which are roughly N 48°31' E 9°3', as well as weather-restricted. But I don't take both of it very serious. And the first geohash I visited was far away from home...

Plans (if any)[edit]

Planning means to substitute random with error.

Is it true that Ekorren earned the Déjà vu geohash?
In principle, yes.
But - although it would have been perfectly within accuracy when passing by train like countless times before, the actual measurement preferred a point 2m off the tracks, which he visited this time. (2011-02-13 48 8).

About the MNIMB: During winter neither snow nor ice or a terrain that provides generally no easy trails could hold me from doing expeditions by bike. The one in the ribbon is just one of several snow-obstacled frozen mountain hashes. After careful examination I came to the conclusion that some of them definitely beat a number of the existing MNIMB hashes but are themselves still beaten by quite a number of others which leave me humble and in awe. I take the ribbon not for a single one but as kind of a lifetime achievement.

More countries I hashed in, but not scored a border geohash because I would have gone there even without geohashing: Luxembourg, Austria

Is it true that Ekorren earned the hash by getting far closer than GPS accuracy?
In principle, yes.
But he still tends to believe that the exact point was inside the house. (2010-10-30 48 9).

Is it true that Ekorren earned the Bingo geohash achievement by reaching hashes in 5 (6, even) graticules in a row (48,7-48,12)?
In principle, yes.
But due to cultural incomprehension about whether ignoring the center is vital to making a line complete that achievement was never introduced (2011-04-06 48 11).

Tools[edit]

I run another of those online hashing tools, built to contain everything important on a glance and work on virtually every device not entirely uncapable of browsing, or providing a convenient overview for a region. See here.
