Jump to: navigation, search

Wiebe Nijland started geohashing end 2011 and is based in the Vancouver graticule, but will also visit as many other graticules as possible. I try to geohash as much as possible by bike, but will also drive out with my van especially if I can combine reaching the coordinates with some awesome camping trip or other activities.

Contents

[edit] Geohashing Equipment

  • Focus Mares Disk 2010, my beloved road/cyclocross Bike (2*10 speed, 105 Compact)
  • Teal VW eurovan '92, rides seven and/or sleeps two.
  • Garmin etrex Legend H GPS, drowned on 2012-11-09_49_-123
  • Magellan Explorist GC
  • Recta+ DS50 Compass
  • Camera Gear (o.a. Sony NEX-6)
  • My trusted Dutch Clogs (wooden shoes), I don't bring them always but consider them my hashcot.

[edit] Graticules

the graticules I geohashed and the number of expeditions in each of them.

[edit] Goals

  • Attend a true XKCD Saturday Meetup
  • Complete the Vancouver, BC minesweeper (now 5/8)
  • Water Geohash
  • Underwater scuba Geohash !!
  • Globalhash
  • Camping geohash
  • MNB geohash
  • No batteries geohash

there are many more, once some of my wishes get fulfilled I will add new ones. Finally I would sure like to hash all graticules of the World, but that may be a little ambitious.
