Results: Geodashing Game 78

"Since I was out in the middle of nowhere and I didn't think anybody
was in the area that would shoot me and since I hadn't zeroed out any
of the others I decided to take a walk thru the cactus and Joshua
trees to the DashPoint. Within about 6-8 feet of the DashPoint was a
fallen Joshua tree."

That's Geodashing in Nevada with D

"We were greeted warmly by a large black dog that was waiting as his
owner (dressed in camouflage gear and chest high waders) tied down the
cover on the boat he had just pulled out of the river. He had been
duck hunting and got two ducks and a goose ... gave his dog a good
workout."

That's Geodashing in Virginia with Jack Frickey

"It was a rough road in the hills going up and up
and up. The sun went down. It was windy and C-O-L-D. I parked about
900 meters away and started walking. It was getting darker and darker.
There were rocks, mesquite brush and yucca plants. I found an ATV-only
side road and walked directly toward the point. At 97 meters to go my
hands were numb and the terrain was getting very steep. I called it
'close enough.'"

That's Geodashing in Utah with David Mower

==================================

==================================

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

plane trees in full leaf, with the median strip planted with lush
agapanthus with purple flowers, close to Port Philip Bay in Victoria,
Australia, scored on the first day of December

in a harvested corn field in Germany - look up for a view of the snow
covered Alps, look down to step carefully in the recently fertilized
meadow

in Qatar, within site of the desalination plant at Al-Wakra, the US
military base

in a hilly park interwoven with hiking trails in downtown Vernon,
British Columbia

in typical thorny brush and bushveld type trees outside Pretoria,
South Africa

in Ettenhausen, Switzerland, behind House no. 8 (ceramic number sign
with flowers) close to a vineyard

in a gravel pit in southern California, busy with gravel hauling
trailers the size of which you could never imagine (welcome back, D)

on the grounds of the Massachusetts Air National Guard Base

in a paddock of a dairy farm, home to hundreds of cows and thousands
of small sticky flies, near Vervale, Victoria, Australia

a short walk up a trail among beautiful old oak trees in wine country
north of San Francisco

just south of a sewage treatment plant east of Porto Alegre, Brazil

in a little white gazebo in front of a brick ranch house in North
Carolina

on a salt lake, one of thousands in the wheatbelt area of Western
Australia

in Virginia, on the grounds of Stratford Hall Plantation, birthplace
to American Civil War southern general Robert E. Lee

in a cemetery behind St Andrew's Episcopal Church in Maryland,

and behind the Community Missionary Baptist Church, a small sanctuary
in south-central LA, and inside the grounds of the Compton Adult

Thanks to all the Geodashing players, whose many great reports are
quoted here, not always with proper attribution. Complete, original
reports are available on the Web site.

==================================

About Geodashing: Geodashing is a game in which players use GPS
receivers on a playing field that covers the entire planet. The
waypoints, or dashpoints, to be reached are randomly selected. The win
goes to who can get to the most dashpoints; that is, if you can get to
them at all! Each game has a new set of dashpoints making each game
different and unpredictable. For more information and to play, visit
