Have we reached the hashpoint?

I cannot deactivate until you say "we have reached the hashpoint."

I now live in 51,-0 but can sometimes be found two graticules over in 51,-2. I monitor the hashpoints most days, and I'll do expeditions to interesting places if they're accessible by public transport or walking with no more than a half hour journey each way. I'll travel for longer if there's a meetup on.

London geohashing isn't as fun as Cambridge geohashing. The transport system is great, but it often happens that while a hashpoint is near somewhere interesting, the actual point is in a private residence or other inaccessible building. I've been in Somerset a lot recently. The hashpoints look good but they are a pain to get to. It felt like Cambridge was a good middle ground. Maybe I should get a cheap dirtbike and keep it at my sister's in Somerset, and go out geohashing on the quiet days here. Tongs (talk) 20:24, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

Nice Mouseover Day meetup with Sourcerer. We lamented the slow death of geohashing but it didn't make it any less fun. Tongs (talk) 10:01, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

I have been trying to get my labmates to go geohashing but they are too shy. When I go home some days they say "Are you meeting strangers?" to see if I'm going geohashing. "Meeting strangers" is now our name for geohashing. Tongs (talk) 15:33, 28 August 2018 (UTC)

Geohashing goals[edit]

  • Kayak to a hashpoint.
  • If the hashpoint is fairly near, the hobbit achievement. I have pretty tough feet.
