Lol-asg.png 36 / m / 52,0

I'm originally from Sheffield, United Kingdom, but moved to Cambridge, United Kingdom in 2001 and have lived there ever since. I discovered geohashing in 2012 completely by accident whilst trying to find out some information about tide times on the North Norfolk coast, and Google sent me to the 2012-09-02 52 0 expedition page. I'm not sure why I'd never heard of it before, given that I'd been reading xkcd since before the original geohashing comic was published!

I don't have a car, and am only an occasional cyclist. Most of the hashpoints I've visited have been reached on foot or by public transport.

[edit] Hashcot

I've decided to geohash with a small pink toy caterpillar named Hammersmith (after the London Underground line). Don't ask. More recently, I've also taken along an unnamed blue knitted mouse that doesn't have any eyes. Again, don't ask. Oh, and MrsPaintedJaguar often geohashes with me as well!

[edit] Aims

I've decided, quite randomly, that my long-term geohashing goal is to complete a Minesweeper Geohash achievement that includes both graticules that I've lived in, Cambridge and Sheffield. In order to achieve this (without buying a boat), I'll have to centre on the Northampton, United Kingdom graticule.
