I'm a Nathan, a recent college grad who just moved to the Twin Cities area from the Portland, OR area. I'd been thinking about geohashing for some time, but never seemed to get to it. Now, it's the prefect excuse to go exploring somewhere I've never been.
I live in the North portion of the St. Paul SE graticule, but expect to head out to other neighboring graticules, depending on which is closest.
I don't have a GPS yet, so for now I'm relying on aerial photography and maps.
Email/talk page work best, but if you want to call, I have a Google Voice Widget you can use.
