Tilley
My name is Matti and I'm from Kuopio, Finland. I'm 34 years old and I love outdooring in its various forms.

I'm a fan of xkcd, and read the famous(?) geohashing comic a few years ago, but then forgot about the whole thing. Recently I stumbled on geohashing again on xkcd blag, and were quite surprised how active community there is around geohashing even today. As I own a GPS device, I thought that maybe I could start geohashing too, it sounded like fun. My excitement was heightened when I noticed that no one had ever visited a geohash in my graticule, so there was even a Virgin Graticule award to be taken right away.

My hobbies include mountain biking and paddling, and I own a kayak, so reaching also the water hashes won't be a problem. Those will probably be quite common, as we have hundreds of thousands of lakes in Finland.

In this area, temperatures in mid-winter lie below -20°C for a month or two, the coldest days being -35°C. Thus the lakes develop a thick ice every winter, so Frozen and Walking on Water achievements will be very easy, but I have to remember to take off my cross-country skis as I reach the hashpoint!

[edit] Graticules

I have connections to graticules that include Helsinki, Keuruu and Valtimo, so on vacations and such I could try to reach hashpoints in those graticules, too.

[edit] Plans

I will most likely be trying to reach hashes that are within biking/skiing/paddling distance, because although I own a car, I usually don't drive it too much and try to use my bike(s) to do my daily traveling.
