[edit] About Me

  • I'm from Heidelberg, Germany.
  • I stumbled upon geohashing in 2008, finally going on my first expedition on October 22nd when the coordinates fell close to my university.
  • I soon discovered that (a) I knew practically nothing about the region I had already lived in for years and that geohashing is a fun way to discover the unknown and (b) getting to nearby hashpoints can make for a great running workout.
  • I've since walked on roughly 1/3 of my expeditions. I've reached about as many hashpoints going by train, mostly if the coordinates led me to interesting places (farthest train expedition: Neu-Ulm). I've cycled to a few hashpoints and used a car for even fewer.

[edit] Achievements to Get

It's always nice to win an achievement along with a successful expedition. For me, some are more desirable than others.

  • Walk.PNG Walk to as many hashpoints as possible. For a complete list of all my walk hashes (successful or not), see here. (already earned: 21 times, failed: 5 times, cumulated distance: 321.1 km)
  • Beastofburdenribbon2.png Travel some distance to a hashpoint using the power of an animal. (not yet earned)
  • ReverseRegional.png Get a (nontrivial) regional or reverse regional achievement. (earned once, level 2)

[edit] Things to Do at Hashpoints

  • Combine geohashing with guerilla gardening.
  • Revisit old hashpoints and document how the place changed (the above point makes revisiting particularly interesting).
  • Clean up the hashpoint area.
  • Fly a kite at the hash.
  • Play Ingress
  • Leave a hashmark.
  • Leave a hashmark big and durable enough that it can be seen from space. Then wait for the next Google Earth imagery update.
