[edit] A little bit about me

I learned about Geohashing on December 31, 2008. And attempted my first hash two days later. My job as a science teacher severely limits my opportunities to wonder around. At any rate, I'll attempt as many hashes as I can try to keep readers entertained.

PS: My brothers are also in this ( Woodveil ). They beat me getting started.

[edit] Successful Geohashes (2)

2009-06-15 all.jpg On 2009-06-15. The second hash ever to be reached in the Jacksonville graticule.


[edit] Unsuccessful Geohashes (5)

DSCF2186.jpg On 2009-02-28. Attempt number five. Check it.
2009-02-22 Driving up.jpg On 2009-02-22. My fourth attempt. The hash looked good. Success seemed within reach. Check it out.
2009-01-25 swamp2.jpg On 2009-01-25. My third attempt. The hash should be reachable, but still no success. Click and read my dramatic tale.
2009-01-18 sign3.jpg On 2009-01-18. Two weeks since my last attempt, I now have a simple GPS and some time on my hands. The hash was close and appears to be reachable. Click and see what went wrong.
2009-01-02 Bike and Car.jpg On 2009-01-02. Being very interested in completing a geohash before having to go back work I checked the coordinates right at 9:30 EST. It was only six miles away. And in a location that I thought would be easily accessible. How did it end up? Click and see.
