From Geohashing

This is me! Now living in Arlington, Virginia, I've been geohashing on and off since high school. I don't geohash often; I usually go when I'm on road trips so I can see some of the back roads of the countryside I pass through (although I'll also go if the hashpoint is very close to my home). An interactive map of my expeditions is available at this link .
