From Geohashing

About

I am a Finnish outdoors person, geocacher and orienteer. I heard about geohashing at about the same time I started geocaching in 2013, but only in April 2019 did I actually get around to creating an account.

Geocaching profile: Kripakko

Home graticule: Joensuu, Finland (62,29)

I have created a template for displaying links to National Land Survey of Finland's topographic map: Template:MapSiteLink. Anyone in Finland is free to use it too if they want to.
