From Geohashing


This user earned the Ambassador achievement
by obtaining permission to access the ({{{latitude}}}, {{{longitude}}}) geohash on [[{{{date}}} {{{latitude}}} {{{longitude}}}|{{{date}}}]].

The Ambassador Geohasher achievement is granted to a Geohasher who gains permission to visit the exact location of a Geohash that is located within posted private property. Failure to be granted permission to visit the exact location is still cause for celebration with the No Trespassing Award.

Unauthorized access to private property is strictly forbidden, and is cause for nullification of all Ambassadorships.

The more piratical (or perhaps just less diplomatic/P.C.) among us sometimes refer to this as the "Master Trespasser" achievement. "No offense..."  ;)

Diplomatic Passport

Every geohasher knows how it is: You're doing your first expedition in a region where people speak a strange language. The 6 ft 4 guard wants to see your authorization before giving you access to the hashpoint. On a Friday evening you drive by Saturday's meetup point and all you can see are a letterbox and a sign denying access.

You could easily give up now and settle for your tenth No Trespassing ribbon in a row. Or you could slowly open your bag and whip out the magic piece of paper: your Diplomatic Passport.

In short: This is a simple explanation for geohashing. Give it to the property owners while asking for access (so they can read it in peace) or throw it in their letterbox on Friday to prepare them for Saturday's invasion.

Disclaimer: As King Randall is not yet recognized by the United Nations, this document does not make you invulnerable. It's your fault, not ours, if you get yourself impaled on an illiterate hillbilly's pitchfork, shot by the guard's 4 ft 3 superior, eaten by aliens or bitten by the free-wheeling watchdog.
