From Geohashing

2013-09-09 55 37

Can you upload any pictures from this expedition? -- Jevanyn (talk) 12:30, 19 December 2013 (EST)

Sorry, forgot. I'll check if I still have any of those around.
Oh, and before anyone asks, I won't be going on tomorrow's geohash (2013-12-21); while it's the closest in, IIRC, over a week, it's still right on the opposite edge of the city.
Coincidentally, what do you think about my "graticule names" page, and do you have any comments? --January First-of-May (talk) 11:50, 20 December 2013 (EST)

2020-07-22 global

Tomorrow's globalhash is only a few graticules away from you. It looks like it is on a path, so it should be accessible if you are able to travel there. --Fippe (talk) 13:43, 21 July 2020 (UTC)

It looks extremely reachable, but I'm not really enough of a random-adventurer to drive away to Tula Oblast on short notice (don't even have a car), and the extremely nearby railway station apparently doesn't serve passenger trains at the moment OK, it might (I'll try to work out a theoretical schedule), but still not going there on my one free day in Moscow. It will probably be a nice one to do as a retro, though (possibly the nicest retro global anywhere near Moscow).
I'll contact the other two geohashers in the Moscow area that I know of, but I doubt they could get there either. --January First-of-May (talk) 21:13, 21 July 2020 (UTC)
Checked the schedules. A theoretical globalhasher starting in Moscow would have to:
  • Take the 11:15 bus to Yefremov;
  • Be stuck in Yefremov for about two hours;
  • Take the 16:50 train to Tovarkovo;
  • Be stuck in Tovarkovo (and the hash area) for another two hours;
  • Take the 21:30 train to Yefremov;
  • Be stuck in Yefremov for about two hours again;
  • Take the 01:30 bus and be in Moscow at 5 in the morning.
There are faster routes, but they seem to depend on buses I couldn't find good data for, and/or long-distance trains that might not have enough places on that short notice. --January First-of-May (talk) 21:44, 21 July 2020 (UTC)


I'd join a server if you made one (if you'd like to add me, the alphabetic part of my handle is Arlo James Barnes Lacuna Morituri, and the numeric part #2369). Or a Matrix room. Arlo (talk) 01:49, 11 August 2020 (UTC)

I have no idea what a Matrix room is, and I suspect that a Discord server with like two people in it would be boring (and once it gets bigger, I probably couldn't afford to moderate). But sure. What should I do to make a new Discord server? --January First-of-May (talk) 09:27, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
It's easy to transfer moderatorship if needed. Up to you of course, but creating a server is easy and doesn't carry an obligation. It is done by clicking the plus icon in the left column with the server icons, and then selecting 'create server'. Or I could do it if you prefer. Matrix is another chat protocol, no need to worry about it if you don't use it. Arlo (talk) 15:39, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
Request sent, thanks! --January First-of-May (talk) 16:44, 11 August 2020 (UTC)

Would you be able to provide an invite link to the server somewhere (on the Discord page, for example)? XXOs (talk) 04:15, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

It's possible. You can also send a message and or friend request to "Lacuna Morituri#2369" (that's me). Arlo (talk) 06:12, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
OK, just did that. My username is the same as the one on here, and the number part is #1317. XXOs (talk) 22:13, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
For what it's worth, my username on Discord is, for some weird reason I no longer remember, "Lothario O'Leary" (number 7999). --January First-of-May (talk) 01:50, 21 September 2020 (UTC)

February 2021

You have two unfinished reports from last month: 2021-02-06 55 37 and 2021-02-20 55 37. Do you want to complete them? --Fippe (talk) 20:08, 14 March 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for reminding me! I keep forgetting about them. I do intend to complete them eventually, but I might need a few more reminders before that happens. --January First-of-May (talk) 07:56, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
Here is another reminder! :-) --Fippe (talk) 11:36, 13 March 2022 (UTC)

Any chance of joining me on 2021-05-24 55 37?

I'm setting out for hash in your graticule tomorrow. You seem (somewhat) active, so I figured it might be worth asking to join me on this one. It's not quite in Moscow, though, you'll have to travel to village near Domodedovo (I'm getting there by bus+train+bus combo). V1993 (talk) 13:32, 23 May 2021 (UTC)

Probably not, unlikely to have that much free time tomorrow. I'll try to ask vb if they're interested, though. --January First-of-May (talk) 13:59, 23 May 2021 (UTC)
Alright. Please write back the results! 15:11, 23 May 2021 (UTC)
Hey, any news? If Vb decides to go I may have to adjust my timing somewhat or wait on hash for a while. I also may bring snacks! V1993 (talk) 19:22, 23 May 2021 (UTC)
No reply to my email so far, which probably suggests it hadn't been read yet. Will check again in a few hours. --January First-of-May (talk) 19:59, 23 May 2021 (UTC)

Any chance of joining me for this one? V1993 (talk) 13:27, 4 December 2021 (UTC)

Approximately none, I'm not yet ready for multi-hour trips each way just to visit a hash. Besides, I'll probably be too busy tomorrow anyway. But it's a nice spot! --January First-of-May (talk) 14:43, 4 December 2021 (UTC)
Alright then. Do you think it's worth asking anyone else about this one? V1993 (talk) 14:44, 4 December 2021 (UTC)
Vb, I guess, though I suspect they would say approximately the same thing. I'm not aware of any other geohashers anywhere nearby. --January First-of-May (talk) 14:50, 4 December 2021 (UTC)

Welcome to Israel

Feel free to be in touch about meeting up. Are you in touch with Fippe? Yosef (talk) 06:07, 30 July 2023 (UTC)

Sorry, just noticed! I'm on the Discord server, but not really in touch otherwise AFAICT. Why are you asking? January First-of-May (talk) 10:13, 1 September 2023 (UTC)
