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

Who am I?[edit]

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.


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).


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.


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.
