New to Geohashing!
Already have several people in mind to drag along through the unexplored basque graticules!
I will mostly be using bike and/or public transport.
My first Geohash
I'd been consumed by the concept of geohashing for the past week, checking nearby hashpoints daily in spite of not yet having a gps, and planning many conquests in a yet unhashed area. So when the hashpoint turned out to be less than 20km from my workplace, I didn't want to miss the opportunity. I used public transport (train) to get to the hash-town Usurbil, and then rode my bicycle.
In spite of not having a GPS, GoogleMaps allowed me to accurately determine when I was at a distance of about 60m SSE from the hashpoint thanks to some power-lines crossing the path. When I arrived to the point on the path where the powerlines were directly overhead, I ventured off the path into the forest on foot (in a NNW-ish direction, as estimated by powerlines&path) to get as close as possible to the actual hashpoint. There were poky brambles.
's very nice userpage (which seems to have been shamelessly copy-pasted from relet
's...) as my model.
