I am a 18 years old guy living in the small city of Trento, northern Italy. I pride myself in being the most active Italian geohasher, but that's not a great accomplishment- I don't have any regular competition.
I got to know geohashing on the 12th of August, 2012, and it was instant love. Trentino is not the easiest place to get around- it's all mountains around here, and some places can be quite hard to reach. On the other hand, though, Trento is on the bottom left corner of a graticule- this means I have three other graticules nearby should the location in mine be unreachable. I mostly hash via public transport, as I don't have a driver's license yet.
At the end of 2012 I released a report on all the expeditions I did during the year, which you can read here. Thanks for visiting my userpage, and feel free to leave a message for anything- even if you just want to chat.

Planned but not attempted expeditions (hopefully future retros)
2012-12-14: Snowstorm struck in the morning causing transport delays, my timetable wouldn't allow me to go on an adventure.
2012-01-21: Bad weather, had a cold, and it was too difficult (also implied lots of time)

- Side note/shameless bragging: I could have claimed both land geohash and Public Transport geohash on my first expedition, but I lacked proof for those two.
These are my ultimate achievements- they will take something like five years to accomplish but well, I like challenges.
1) Successfully hashing once in every of the 217 Trentino municipalities (so far: 9)
2) Using at least once every Trentino city/intercity bus line.
- Trento city bus: 3/22
- Rovereto city bus: 5/8
- Intercity bus: 14 + FTM
3) Using at least once every Trentino Trasporti bus.
- Trento city bus: 15 buses
- Rovereto city bus: 4 buses + 1 private shuttle
- Intercity bus: 20 + 1 private shuttle
