From Geohashing

Mid Wales Shrewsbury Birmingham

I've now made a big move to the Manchester, United Kingdom graticule from my old Tucson, Arizona. It's different here!

While I had acquired a Citation of sorts back in the US, and even brought it with me here, before I could ever use it here, it was stolen, found, impounded by the police, supposedly gone over for evidence, and then destroyed for no good reason. So here I am again, in Citation Needed-land. At least Public transport geohash achievements are much easier here than in the US.

Ironically, despite my username, I've never made an expedition by conventional car yet, much less by Karmann Ghia.

Expeditions

Plans

  • 2020-03-01 My last day with the rental car, so I'll find out Friday what's available for this day.
    • 2020-03-01 51 -0 is about the only reasonably accessible hashpoint in England, in Letchworth, on a road or pavement in a residential area.
  • 2020-02-29
  • 2020-02-28 Since I'm renting a car for the weekend to make sure of the Leap geohash, I'll see what's available for Friday, too.
    • 2020-02-28 53 -1 In the Peak District, just a couple of hundred metres off the road, and about 60 m up from it, but parking looks scarce around there.
    • 2020-02-28 52 -1 Solihull on the southeast side of Birmingham, right in the middle of Monkspath Hall Road, ideally situated for a Speed racer achievement
    • 2020-02-28 52 -2 Onibury in Shropshire, in a field, not far at all from a maybe drivable track
    • 2020-02-28 52 -3 Right on a track through a wood, about 6 km walking from the main road, but just about a hundred metres from a possibly accessible track nearby, in Ceredigion in Wales
    • 2020-02-28 54 -2 On a hill near Potter Fell & Brunt Knott around Staveley in the Lake District
    • 2020-02-28 53 -2 Knowsley near Liverpool, right in the middle of a field by Fairchilds Farm
