From Geo Hashing
Jump to: navigation, search

Hello. My name is James. I live in the Glasgow graticule, and was the first man to reach a hashpoint in the 55 -4 area (and indeed any hashpoint in Scotland), less than one month after the cartoon was posted.


So far I have made it to three hashpoints:

  • 2 (almost exactly 27 months later) - September 11th, 2010 in the middle of Dumbarton Road in Bowling.
  • 3 - October 30th, 2010 behind Langside College in Glasgow (fifteen minutes walk from my house).



James earned the Virgin Graticule Achievement
by being the first to reach any hashpoint in the (55, -4) graticule, here, on 2008-06-12.
