Hi Robyn, when creating my user page i was aware, that there´s still a "Thomcat", but luckily not yet any "Tomcat" as in most other places in the www. So this time i was not forced to add some (unwanted) suffixes to my nickname, to distinguish from already existing users.
Tomcat, I will be visiting your country in a few days. I will not have a car, but will try to geohash over the weekend by rail if possible. If you get down to Niedersachsen, we should definitely meet up! --Thomcat 23:29, 17 February 2009 (UTC)
Hi Thomcat, thanks for your message. For us germans distances like those between Niedersachsen and Bavaria are quite far ;-) But aniway, your suggestion of a meetup on a weekend is promising and to visit one of the "northern" graticules (seen from my homegraticule 49 11 Nürnberg) e. g. 50 9 (Fulda), 50 10 (Erfurt) or 50 11 (Gotha) by train should be possible. So, if you could manage to travel south to one of these graticules, i would be ready for a meetup on a weekend. I´ve discussed that already with Dawidi and he also agreed in such a meetup.

- Glad to see that the two T[h]omcats got to meet. I'm also impressed with your statement that "For us germans distances like those ... are quite far ;-)" A lot of people don't realize that there's a difference between places, and that 250 km is not a really far distance to travel for a meetup in Canada or the US. -Robyn 20:32, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
Hey Tomcat. Did you move to Munich or will you be hashing there regularly? I am just asking because it might be misleading for any newcoming locals to call a graticule active if there is not at least one more-or-less-regular hasher. -- relet 09:17, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
