We have been actively geocaching for about 2 years and reading XKCD for about 6. Although the concept of geohashing is intriguing, I'm not sure how practical it is around us. We could end up in Shawnee, or LBL, but it will most likely be on someone's farm ground, or water. We'll stick to geocaching mostly, but won't pass up a chance for a hash if we're nearby.

[edit] Adventures

  • 2012-03-10 37 -88: Failure: We tried to get as close as we could, but alas, it was on private property.
  • 2012-03-17 36 -88: Success: It just worked out to be at the top of LBL on a Saturday that we were looking for an adventure.
  • 2012-04-06 38 -90: Success: As I was sitting in the waiting room for the other half of the team, I noticed that today's hash was less than 2.5miles away and pretty close to our path home. Of course we had to go get it, and it turned out to be in someone's front yard/street so it was an easy park and grab...a picture or two.
  • 2013-01-23 38 -90: Success: I noticed that today's was fairly close to our way home. So after picking up the rest of the team, we set out and had few issues other than a long light and a muddy field.
  • 2013-01-23 38 -90: Success: Eh, why not. I've got a few minutes at lunch.
