I was flicked a link by Greenslime about this game at the beginning of 2010 and i've been hooked since. Now everyday i find myself looking to see where my local hash falls. This is an awesome random adventure generator and when ever we go for road trips around our skinny little island we have a go at any hashes in our path, at this stage at least any that don't land in water. Turns out most are either in the water or private farmland or in dense bush, but that just makes it more challenging right?


I live in the Auckland, New Zealand graticule and have travelled around completing a couple of hashes in the South Waikato, New Zealand and Hamilton, New Zealand graticules while passing through. At the end of 2010 i was even lucky enough to grab some overseas in the wonderful (that's sarcasm) Townsville, Australia.
