/me is interesting...


Contents

[edit] tzzzt... there i are

AKA my home graticule

Melbourne, Australia (specifically, Melbourne East )

currently living in Leeds, UK

myka also lives in #geohashing a lot, when a computer is available (so usually).

[edit] Where I (might) go Hashing

Melbourne East - my home graticule
Melbourne West - the other half of Melbourne
Bendigo - my hometown, just next door as well.

The Hashscot

[edit] Hashscot - possibly Fergus

I've designated a Hashscot (mascot), named possibly Fergus, to stand in for me in my hash report photos (at least on those occasions when I don't meet anyone). Its first hash was 2009-03-15 -36 144.

[edit] I have a Cunning Plan

I now have a car, and will try for some more interesting hash points as the time and opportunity presents itself. Anyone in the area should feel free to suggest a spontaneous adventure, and I can take passengers.

In fact, since I prefer to get out of the city on weekends, I will also go for some more interesting graticules as well.

[edit] List of things to have for the next time

This list will evolve as time progresses

  • Sunglasses - because I don't need flies in my eyes while cycling.
  • A GPS or WAP - because either could let me use computer-ated mapology
(now have wapness enabled, so there's something at least. problem is Google Maps Mobile has a 300m error margin when running off the towers)
(now have a borrowed older and not so accurate GPS, yay!)
  • A way to get tracks off the GPS
  • A car - because the trains in Melbourne... are not great. gots car
  • a replacement the drink bottle holder on my bike.
  • Another map than google to double-check addresses with. (I just need to bother)
  • A camera, because my camera phone is only adequate, and far from good.
  • A name for my hashscot. (possibly Fergus)
  • more - because I forget to write things down.
