Results: Geodashing Game 133 (GDBH)

"Yesterday we went to Walmart and had our daughter pick out stuff to give to the Marian House down in Colorado Springs. They are involved in helping out fire victims amongst others. We made it to the dashpoint (46 ft away in someone's backyard). I found a viewpoint a couple blocks away and up the hill for a photo of the fires. Afterward, we made it to the Marian House and Tressie helped give the food and stuff away. We taught her that that's what we're called to do when someone is in need."

That's Geodashing in Colorado with YLO_RLR

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

Game 133 (GDBH) of Geodashing was won by team Llama League, their second win in a row. Honorable mentions go to teams En Dash! and GeoTerriers.

Individual honors to to RogBarn, thanks to a 3,220 mile mad dash to 11 dashpoints (10 successfu) in 14 days through Ohio, New York Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Illinois. Honorable mentions go to BOB, Jack Frickey and Tom Arneson.

The game saw 52 dashpoint hunts in five countries (Estonia, US, UK, Poland and Australia).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

on a small meadow 250m from the Baltic Sea in Estonia ("The point itself was quite boring; I met a nice ladybug on the meadow though.")

on a hill covered in sagebrush and buckwheat along what used to be a stagecoach route from southern California's Conejo Valley down to the Oxnard Plain

in mature woods, with both oaks and pines, of Reserve, Wisconsin, opposite the road from cranberry bogs

in Tucson, Arizona, at the end of a cul-de-sac lined with palm trees and saguaro cactus

near the clubhouse and community pool and playground and tennis courts and trails of The Village of Dorset Park in Burlington, Vermont

near the 6th hole of the Bear Creek golf course in Morrison, Colorado ("There were quite a few golfers, but they paid no attention to me.")

in the middle of a forest in Poland ("I wanted to make a little stop, eat polish donut, and drink coffee from the vacuum flask... but too many mosquitoes here, I have to evacuate as fast as possible.")

in Missouri, down a seldom traveled two track in in tall grass, weeds, and brush ("Douq suggested I walk down the hill to zero the point...no way, I don't walk places where I can't see my feet.")

in Shannondale, Virginia, in a large tract of wooded mountain set aside as a nature preserve and wildlife management area

outside Philadelphia, in the yard of a house with a welcome sign in the shape of a baseball player in a Phillies uniform

near a yellow house in Greenville, Pennsylvania, in the yard with a hearse sitting in the weeds ("it's probably been there a long time")

in Tracy, California, in the yard of a house with a pair of fiberglass(?) deer

in a garden center in Piercebridge, UK

at the entrance to the Garden Place Senior Living Center in Millstadt, Illinois

in front of the front door of Emmanuel Bible Chapel in Foundryville, Pennsylvania

behind a Checkers restaurant in Maryland

on an island in an ornamental lake in The Arthur Westlake Memory Reserve west of Melbourne

along the footpath that goes over and down the river in the UK's Newbiggin wood

in a soy bean field in Minnesota, irrigated by a center pivot sprinkler whose nozzle was spraying across the road

in a flat, sandy area in typical juniper woodland with a few pine trees in Oregon's Deschutes County ("The Cascades, still with a modest amount of snow, were barely visible from the top of a rock outcrop near the dashpoint.")

outside Chicago, on the merge ramp that is hit from the southbound Interstate 294 merging ramp that goes to westbound I-90 ("I would guess that thousands of people, likely tens of thousands, hit the scoring zone of the dashpoint every day.")

and in Betterton, Maryland right on Chesapeake Bay, near a street sign with numerous arrows ("Death Valley (2666), Niagara Falls (469), San Francisco (2892), and Bozeman (2150)")

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

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.
