Hello, I am John, and I'm from Melbourne, I went on a couple of geohashes with friends from school in 2008, but recently I learnt that some of my uni friends (Particularly Lachie and Felix) do a bit of geohashing which rekindled my interest in it.

I created this account in order to write up my first geohash expedition after my 4 and a half year hiatus post 2008.

[edit] 2008 Expeditions

I don't remember that much about them, there was one in someone's front yard in Kew, after which we went for a walk in a cemetery. The other one involved a train to Hurstbridge, about a 10km ride and then a couple of hundred metre scrabble through a creek valley, probably on someone's property. Both didn't involve GPS, google maps satellite images were our main resources.
