NEW Spring 2014: There has been published in YouTube a nicely edited short film about Pastori's geohashing trip last summer. Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0Unmu6Ce5I

Pastori
This user is a retired pastor from Valtimo, Finland. He bought his first smartphone with GPS in March 2013, and his son immediately introduced him to the concept of geohashing. As he is an adventurous and wilderness-loving person, the idea of visiting random coordinates appealed to him. A couple of nearby coordinates still slipped by because of lack of proper software in the phone, but when his son visited him for Easter, Geohash Droid was immediately installed. Then it was only a matter of time before the first adventure could begin...

(Note: His son has written these descriptions and will write the actual reports according to his narrative, as he has not enough confidence in his own skills writing English texts.)

[edit] Graticules

He lives in a very sparsely populated graticule, bearing the name of Nilsiä. His home is in the municipality of Valtimo, which is in the eastern side of a chain of forested hills acting as a water divider. This makes Valtimo to draw many weather patterns from the continental climate of Russia, which makes it a very cold place; according to the national classification, the city of Rovaniemi in the Arctic Circle (The home of Santa Claus) enjoys similar climate as this region. Coldest days of winter regularly see the thermometer dropping to almost -40°C, and even in March there can be -25°C in the nighttime.

[edit] Plans

To visit hashpoints whenever they are close enough! And in vacations or when traveling also whenever they are not so close. .)

Update May 2013: Pastori now has a master plan to visit all the graticules in Finland! Here is a map to track the progress.
