Camping geohash achievement

From Geohashing

Template:Camping geohash

This user earned the Camping geohash achievement
by camping at the ({{{latitude}}}, {{{longitude}}}) geohash on [[{{{date}}} {{{latitude}}} {{{longitude}}}|{{{date}}}]], from sundown to sunrise.

Reaching coordinates is one thing, but real geohashers don't just photograph the GPS and run away. Real geohashers stay at the geohash all night. At least, to achieve this award they do.


Award yourself this achievement when you:

  • camp out within 1 km of the coordinates
  • you must remain at the coordinates for at least five hours, and stay over midnight

You can sleep in a tent, a box, build an iglu, or whatever shelter you want except pre-existing buildings or vehicles (no cars or camping vans). Sleeping under the open sky is allowed. Staying up all night partying fulfils the letter of the achievement, but what shape will you be in for the next day's geohash?


Please include in your expedition report timestamped photographs of

  • your GPS and surroundings on arrival
  • your sleeping arrangements
  • your GPS and surroundings on departure

If you are awake at midnight you can take another proof picture in order to also qualify for the Midnight Geohash achievement.

If you camp for seven days in a row, you are eligible for the Endurance Geohashing achievement.

The sensible camper would prepare and eat at least one meal at the coordinates, which could make you eligible for the Picnic Geohash achievement.
