Jump to: navigation, search

While my first time and cooler achievements will remain on my main user page, I thought I'd create a page to log all of my achievements. What can I say? I like the little ribbons! So thank you to everyone who created them. The achievements below are listed roughly in order of either coolness or numerosity.

[edit] Cool Achievements

[edit] Meeting People

[edit] xkcd Centurion

I have made progess toward earning the xkcd Centurion Achievement 3 times. I'd really like to meet people geohashing, but I typically geohash in areas where there just aren't a lot of geohashers. I'm hoping I might meet someone in either the Lansing or Detroit, Michigan, graticules sometime soon.

[edit] Drag-along Geohash

I have earned the Drag-along Geohash 2 times. Sometimes you meet people geohashing. Sometimes you introduce people to geohashing. I like both, and this category represents the latter.

[edit] Cold Geohash

I have earned the Cold Geohash 1 time. Living where I do, maybe next winter I'll garner this achievement once again at an even lower temperature!

[edit] Repetitive Geohashing

[edit] Consecutive Geohashes

I have earned the Consecutive Geohash 3 times. I'll likely grab a few more of these, because clearly I like to geohash in my spare time!

[edit] Multihash

I have earned the Multihash 3 times. Sometimes I'm feeling really gung ho, and other times the geohashing gods are smiling on me when they bestow their coordinates upon us and I can't help but to go more than one place. I'm eying at least another one of these sometime in the future on a Saturday going up and down lower Michigan's west coast.

[edit] Minesweeper Geohashes

Counting Minesweeper Geohashes turns out to be rather awkward. I'll post all that I have here, but I've made myself a standard that I won't post any of these on my front page until I've reached at least a Level 5 Minesweeper.

[edit] Virgin Geohashes

I always get a good feeling geohashing a graticule that's never been hashed in before. Not only am I someplace random seeing something that's probably new to me, but I'm seeing it in a place that's new to the sport!

[edit] Outright Virgin Geohashes

I have earned the Virgin Geohash outright 12 times.

[edit] Upgraded Virgin Geohash

I have earned the upgraded Virgin Geohash 1 time. Sometimes someone claims to have geohashed in a graticule, but they don't really have the proof. Then I come along, and I get the proof.

[edit] Cubicle Geohash

I have earned the almost honorable mention version of the Cubicle Geohash 1 time. The geohash happened to fall within three miles of my office. Sweet! Hopefully it falls even closer sometime!

[edit] Walk Geohash

I have earned the Walk Geohash 3 times. It doesn't fall close enough to reasonable walk to often, but when it does I like to get out there.

[edit] Special Dates

[edit] Geohashing Day Geohash

I have earned the Geohashing Day Geohash 1 time. The algorithm was introduced on May 21, 2008. It gave birth to a fun hobby, so I'm happy to celebrate Geohashing Day.

[edit] Mouse Over Day Geohash

I have earned the Mouse Over Day Geohash 1 time. When the algorithm was introduced, the mouse over text said Saturday was game night. So this holiday is celebrated once a year on the Saturday after Geohashing Day.

excellentdude earned the 2009 Mouse Over Day achievement
by celebrating in the (37, -92) graticule on the Saturday following May 21st 2009.

[edit] Birthday Geohash

I have earned the Birthday Geohash 1 time. Geohashing is an enjoyable hobby, so why not do it on my birthday if there's time?

[edit] Golf Geohash

I have earned the Golf Geohash 1 time. This is one of those lucky location ones that doesn't happen too often, so I have to get out there when it does!

[edit] Normal Achievements

[edit] Public Transport Geohashes

I have earned the Public Transport Geohash 1 time. The public bus system where I live is pretty nice for a community of its size, but it's pretty inefficient travel if you have to transfer, especially if you must do so more than once. Given the limited range and the time constraints of the bus system, I will probably earn this ribbon fairly rarely while I live here.

by reaching the (42, -84) geohash on 2009-01-08 via CATA.

[edit] Speed Racer Geohashes

I have earned the Speed Racer Geohash 5times. I love driving, and I don't get to do it as much as I used to. So I enjoy these geohashes more than most. Considered lazy geohashing by some, it still allows me to get out and see what's around, which is a big part of why I geohash!

[edit] Frozen Geohashes

I have earned the Frozen Geohash 8 times. Let's face it: I live in Michigan. I'm probably going to earn quite a few of these if I decide to geohash at all between October and April!

[edit] Ambassador Geohashes

I have earned the Ambassador Geohash 13 times. If the hash is not in a public place and there are houses near the hash, I always try to earn this achievement before proceeding to the hash. If there is a no trespassing sign posted, I'll always give asking for permission a shot. If they say "no" or aren't there, I leave. If they say "yes", I geohash!

[edit] Land Geohashes

I have earned the Land Geohash 32 times. Thus far, every geohash I have completed has been a land geohash. I hope to change that at some point. The facts that I don't own a boat, have never been much of a mariner, and don't see myself ever learning to fly seem to point to the land geohash streak never ending. That said, I do live in Michigan for the time being, so there's water everywhere, and maybe I can catch a hash just offshore at some point!

[edit] Consolation Prizes

[edit] Mother Nature's Bitch

[edit] My Kingdom for a Boat

I have earned the My Kingdom for a Boat Consolation Prize 1 time. The satellite images are somewhat reliable, but not always. This is particularly true when you're geohashing away from home and don't know there's been a flood.

[edit] There Might be Alligators!

I have earned the There Might be Alligators! Consolation Prize 1 time. I must admit I don't own waders. Nor do I like mosquitoes. Maybe those things will change, but I'm not holding my breath.

[edit] No Trespassing

I have earned the No Trespassing Consolation Prize 8 times. Sometimes people are scared and say "What? No, you can't stand there and take a picture!" Sometimes they aren't home. Sometimes it just doesn't work out. Oh well.
