I found out about geohashing from the XKCD blog talking about the Antarctica global hash. I've actually done a couple of Geocaches in the past, and I found out about those through my high school Latin IV teacher, who made it our final project to hide a series of Geocaches that somehow lead you through something Classics-related. But even though I've known about those since 2007, I never heard of geohashing until November 2012.
 My Graticules
- I was born in 1990 in Moscow, in the Moscow graticule in Russia, and grew up right next door in Obninsk, but sadly, I doubt I will ever be doing any hashing there, so unless Russia's relationship with expatriates changes, I might never get the Origin geohash achievement.
- When I moved to America in 1999, I lived mostly in Santa Clara County, near San Francisco, which is apparently mostly water - sad to hear.
- I went to college at UC Davis, near Sac which is where I found out about geohashing!
- Lived in Chicago for the first half of 2013
- Now living in my dream town, Portland, hopefully forever!

 Geohashing Activity
- My first attempt to geohash never actually got off the ground. It was the second day that I had known about it, November 15th in Sacramento, and it turned out that on this day the hash fell on a really cool spot, in the Fremont Weir State Wildlife Area on something that looked easy to hike to. But alas, I didn't have the preparation skills, woke up too late in the morning, and had class almost all the way until sunset. Better luck next time!
