From Geo Hashing
Jump to: navigation, search

A great start. Most people haven't even created a user page after two expeditions. How strange it must be to grow up with a wholesome rural lifestyle under the shadow of Sin City. I always enjoy hearing local reflection like that. Juventas 04:46, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks Juventas! I like the idea of geohashing not just because it gives me a reson to explore the area around where I live, but that it can show others the same fascinating things I saw. I've lived in the desert most of my life, so I'm fascinated by expedition reports from more temparate climes. I see it almost like a treasured travel journal a grandparent would will to a grandchild, only contemporary and public. Weltfunk 05:03, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

I did the math and you are within the required 30 meters for your attempt. If you would like to claim coordinates reached, you can. I would. --NWoodruff 13:47, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

There is no official distance for "coordinates reached". Many agree it should be within the accuracy of your GPS. In my experience, and photos of others, 10 meters (33 feet) of accuracy or under is achievable in most environments. There are no rules, no one is keeping score, it's really up to you.

The real fun of geohashing (at least for me) is to have an adventure on your way to the hash, to explore and show off the area and to make other people jealous of your cool expedition. "Coordinates reached" is only the icing on the cake. If you feel you deserve it, take it. If it would make you feel bad or dishonest, don't. (I would not.) --ilpadre 06:50, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
