Geohashing Highlights

[edit] About

I was born and raised in the Aurora, Illinois graticule, where I discovered geohashing while browsing through the XKCD blog. After some periodic expeditions, I ended up moving down to Springfield, Illinois. Living in a new area, I find geohashing to be the perfect way to explore my new home. While I recently bought a new car, I prefer not to burn gas to make it to geohash points and so try to bike instead. It also gives me a great opportunity to build towards my fitness goals when I bike to hash points. So far, some of the longest rides I've ever done were in pursuit of geohashes, and I see more and longer ones in my future. In fact, I even need my own bike stats page!

Other things about me:
Bowling
Photography
xkcd inspired webcomic

I was also the user responsible for updating the Most active users page, but this has been automated (to some extent). I will still be making manual counts, and eventually creating "Most active users by year" pages when I finish.
