From Geo Hashing
Jump to: navigation, search

Now in Prince Rupert, British Columbia, spending the days working in the public library, and the mornings going "Oh crud, I need a boat/sherpa."

  • Update: December 4, 2013. In the two years I've been here, I've only noticed once where the geohash looked accessible, and that was in the week after I dislocated my kneecap and wasn't leaving my second floor apartment. I think I need to up the madness quotient to Vancouver-like levels. Still alive. (Though no triumphs to speak of.)

I discovered geohashing on August 6, 2008.

[edit] Contributions

I created most of the New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island graticule pages, and created the Regional Geohashing, A Tale of Two Hashes achievement and Globalhash achievements. I also helped with the Regional Geohashing display, mapping out Canada and Chile.

[edit] Surrey

  • 2008-09-19 Talk like a pirate day got me out for a quick hash; I've decided to call it a drunken success in retrospect. Pirates don't care about the exact correct spot!

[edit] Bathurst

  • 2008-08-10 4 km from my home for the summer, and on a Sunday. No GPS, but got there, and supplied just enough photographic evidence. I think.

[edit] Surrey

  • 2008-10-18 On prison grounds, and inaccessible, despite it's closeness to the school.

[edit] Moncton

  • 2009-07-12 Ended up about 30 m short, but I got a rather amusing report out of it.
