From Geo Hashing
Jump to: navigation, search
Lol-asg.png 28 / m / 48,9

My home coordinates are plusminus 48.53,9.06 in the city of Tuebingen, Germany. I was born in Erlangen and lived for a long time in the north-western part of 49,11 where I still am from time to time.

I want to geohash mostly by bicycle or public transport, but I will make short detours (less than 5km one way), if a geohash is near to a route I'm driving by car anyway.

Geohashes[edit]

Finally I started with geohashing after years of just watching and checking the coordinates like once every few months :)

My current goal is to go at least once per month on a geohash.

Not attempted[edit]

Here I collect geohashes I didn't attempt, but still are noteworthy somehow. This list is likely incomplete.

2017-06-23 46 5 46.827141,5.727578 Far and foreign graticule; we even drove 200m close to it on the street next to it on the correct day. However terrain is way too steep to reach it.


Geohash Equipment[edit]

  • Garmin etrex Vista
  • Geohash Droid (Android App written by CaptianSpam)
  • Headlight LedLenser H5R.2
  • Gudereit Touring Bicycle
  • Samsung Galaxy S1 (I should really buy a decent smartphone/camera, the pictures look like crap, especially when it's dark) OnePlus One
  • Peugeot 107 (cheating, only if too near to skip!)
  • Electric Scooter "Trinity Uranus"


Achievements[edit]

Only the first ribbon is listed for achievements I acquired more than once.

People met during Geohash expeditions[edit]

People missed[edit]

Minesweeper[edit]

For an easy overview take a look the awesome map by NWoodruf or use the table below. It contains the first successful hash for each graticule. I only included graticules for which I know I will be travelling through or staying in at least for a few days per year and thus there is a small possibility to get them, if the algorithm is kind enough! Those with brackets are even more unlikely to get anytime soon, a star (*) means I attempted this graticule but failed.
