Hello there!

About Me[edit]

My trusted bicycle

I'm 22 years old and live (and, by the way, have always lived) in wonderful München, Germany (48, 11). However, I also do much of my geohashing in the Innsbruck (47, 11) graticule, too. In my free time, I like to play the acoustic guitar, run, cycle or read about chemistry, spaceflight, medicine or other sciency stuff. After doing some not-so-volounteer work in a hospital and undergoing a short paramedic training, I decided to study medicine. Which I'm currently doing at LMU and TU of Munich. I occasionally update my former employee's website and work at the hospital as a side job. This site was recommended to me by DerFlob who I'm occasionally visiting hashpoints with. Since I love cycling and hiking, I hope those will be my preferred ways of traveling. Trains, however, are awesome as well!

Equipment[edit]

I'm currently using:

  • A Garmin eTrex Hiking GPS (which I think is a great GPS, especially since it's kinda waterproof)
  • A Panasonic DMC-TZ5 digital camera (which takes good enough pictures for my purposes - and gladly proved to get along with slight water contact rather well)
  • A Rixe XC 10.0 cross bike. Got it in fall of 2011 and will hopefully use it for lots of expeditions to come.

Hashcards[edit]

I'll gladly forward my adress to anyone seeking the hashcard achievement. Since I'm also aiming to get the achievement, I'd also be glad for any adresses / requests submitted to me.

Plans[edit]

Long-Term[edit]

  • Reaching my Origin Hashpoint in a village N of Ingolstadt. Not very easy to reach, though, because it seems to be right on a tennis court. Maybe I'll try to connect it with an expedition to a hashpoint in the vicinity.
  • Helping to get one of those beautiful Most Active Graticule ribbons for München. We've always been there, it just hadn't been enough expeditions. Hope I can help make a change. Extra satisfaction if Zürich ends up second.

Short-Term[edit]

Aiming for 2013-05-19 48 11 because it is only 2.6 km away from my home (and it's in a nice place to go for a walk). I'll be there at, say, 9 p.m. because I have a family meetup in 49, 12 going on before.

Achievements[edit]

  • Water geohash: There are some noteable lakes in the Innsbruck graticule. Since I don't really possess a water vehicle, reaching a hashpoint in one of those would be a bit tricky, but surely not impossible.
  • Minesweeper Geohash: It's always hard to get yourself to go that extra distance, but I'll keep on looking for good opportunities.

Wiki-related[edit]

I really think the Category:New report could prove to be very useful for new geohashers, of which there are still a lot around. But for that, it has to be implemented more consistently, which I'm aiming to do. Also, I really would like to remove the 200+ old entries still flagged as new ones. If you disagree or propose a different model, feel free to contact me.

Past Expeditions[edit]

2013[edit]

2012[edit]

  • Arrow4.png 2012-06-18 48 11 Scherzkeks and I drove to Ammersee (a lake near München) for the afternoon and had a look at that day's hashpoint, which was very much in the middle of a barley field.
  • Arrow2.png 2012-04-26 48 11 Rather easy: This one was some hundred meters away from the rescue helicopter landing site at Klinikum Großhadern, amidst some trees. Met DerFlob and Zertrin (on his second expedition) there and spent a nice time.
  • Arrow2.png 2012-03-28 48 11 Got to Karlsfeld just N of München by train and met DerFlob there. Again, as every time when there is a hashpoint in reach, the weather was astounding.
  • Arrow2.png 2012-03-17 47 11 Took public transport together with Scherzkeks, DerFlob, Locationmaster (on his first geohash) and two parents as drag-alongs to the Ammersee lake during the beginning of spring. Hashpoint was located in a nice broad-leaved forest.
  • Arrow2.png 2012-03-01 47 11 Connected this one with a visit to my mum. Hashpoint was near Gmund at Tegernsee. Such beautiful weather!

2011[edit]

  • Arrow2.png 1990-11-24 47 11 Made it to my displaced origin hashpoint near Geretsried in southern Bavaria on 2011/02/01 while I was around. Also a bit creepy and freezing.

2010[edit]

  • Arrow2.png 2010-09-06 48 11 On the grave of Mr and Mrs Adam, in a woodland cemetery near Solln S of München.
  • Arrow2.png 2010-07-01 48 11 Tried to collect as many achievements as possible with DerFlob. Point was a bit more than 1 km from my place and even closer to DerFlob's.
  • Arrow2.png 2010-06-23 48 11 Hashpoint was located just 250m away from a suburban train station S of München. Also went there with DerFlob.
  • Arrow2.png 2010-05-21 48 11 Celebrated Geohashing Day in a forest south of Grünwald near München by enjoying silence and nature.
  • Arrow2.png 2010-04-10 48 11 Reached a hashpoint 2 km away from my home by gaining access to an old lady's garden through the means of diplomacy.
  • Arrow2.png 2010-03-27 48 11 Went to the village of Geisenbrunn outside the west of München with DerFlob by bike. Had to encounter heavy headwinds and was happy to ride back home by train.
  • Arrow2.png 2010-03-21 48 11 A short, but yet pleasant trip to Furth together with Johanna (just south of München) where we met DerFlob and later Zb and his drag-along Mar.
  • Arrow4.png 2010-03-17 48 11 Went there with Johanna and DerFlob. Failed because the haspoint was in a restricted parking area for workers of the nearby HypoVereinsbank corporate headquarters. Spent a nice time with fellow geohasher Robert though.
  • Arrow2.png 2010-03-13 47 11 A nice trip to southern Bavaria using public transport. Built an awesome snowman with DerFlob. Also first geohash I've been on.
