From Geo Hashing
Jump to: navigation, search

Geohasher based in the 34, -84 graticule with regular trips to 35, -84; 34, -85; and 35, -85.

My faithful sidekick and partner (though he claims he's the master and I'm the minion) is my hashcot Chibithulu. The latest addition to my Geohashing equipment is a Garmin GPS72, a discontinued model, but it does what I need it to do as long as I don't cause operator error...
