In real life: George McBane, dad, professor, sometime bike commuter, hiker, woodworker, enthusiast of cheese and fountain pens. Picked up geohashing while living in England for a year, and has failed to kick the habit now that he's back in Michigan.

Geohashing collaborators[edit]

Equipment[edit]

  • ZTE Z665C phone, cheapest I could find with GPS. Disadvantages: no compass, and awful WiFi sensitivity.
  • Suunto A10 compass
  • Geohash Droid (Thanks, User:CaptainSpam, for the updates and troubleshooting!)
  • Commonist [[1]], on advice of User:Hermann

Expeditions[edit]

  • Map, courtesy of Nathan Woodruff. You have to zoom out because there are hashes on both sides of the Atlantic.

Achievements[edit]

Most of these list the first time each ribbon was claimed. Exceptions are Virgin Graticule, Tale of Two Hashes, and successive Minesweeper or Consecutive Geohash levels.
