Life's boring? Here, try this: it's called hash -- geohash.


[edit] Who am I?

Bonjour, chers collègues 'géohasheurs' de la Belle Province! Je suis un géologue basé à Montréal et, lorsque je reviens du Grand Nord et qu'il ne fait pas -30, j'embarque sur mon vélo et parcours les Basses-Terres du Saint-Laurent et les Laurentides à la recherche d'aventures!

Greetings, fellow geohashers! I'm a canadian geologist based in Montreal, Québec. Most of the geohash locations in my graticule are in the flat fields of the Saint-Lawrence lowlands or in the steep forest-covered hills of the Grenville Province.

[edit] Where?

Je géohash à Montréal (45 -73), mais, si l'occasion se présente de compléter un géohash loin dans le nord, je n'y manquerai pas!

For now, I geohash in Montréal (45 -73) and, if possible, anywhere where my ridiculous job takes me (mostly up north).

[edit] How?

J'utilise principalement mon vélo et mes souliers qui ont beaucoup voyagé, comme l'aurait dit le grand Félix. J'évite les transports motorisés autant que possible.

I use my walking shoes and my bike, trying to avoid motorized transport as much as possible.

[edit] Expeditions

2011-05-14 45 5: Near Saint-Pierre-de-Chartreuse, France, in the Chartreuse massif. Thunderstorm was waiting.

2012-07-02 45 -73: In Candiac, Québec, on a posh golf course.
