Results: Geodashing Game 145 (GDBT)

"Finally made it to the DP. Our buddy Garmin wanted to naturally route
us through Turner Valley to get to Hwy 7. However, due to the recent
floods, both bridges out of Turner Valley were completely washed out
(One bridge didn't exist anymore at all and the other was only
connected to the bank on one side). The quickest, shortest detour
available to us was to drive back up to Hwy 22X and through Calgary to
go down Hwy 2 to get to Hwy 7. When we got to Hwy 7, we got our first
look at High River which was one of the hardest hit areas by the
flooding. Water still covered half of the town, as a new lake roughly
4 miles by 1 mile had formed where part of the town still is and it is
impossible to pump all that water out. I fear that High River may
never be rebuilt as the landscape appears to have permanently
changed."

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

in an empty paddock in Victoria, Australia, with a view of Ballarat's
Mt. Helen

on a dairy farm in Victoria, Australia, in a large yard without any
cars but with many wild ibis pecking for worms in the lush green lawn

in a corn field in Minnesota, with knee high corn, on the west side of
a gravel section line road

in a corn field in Iowa, with chest-high corn ("Not much going on
around here...just cornfields for as far as my eyes can see")

in a corn field in Illinois ("some of the GREENEST corn we've had in
many years, thanks to ample rain and warmer weather")

in a large bean field in Virginia

in a soybean field in typical northwest Iowa countryside with lots of
rolling hills and sparse population

surrounded by Maine woods, in a mowed area with tractor tire marks but
no sign of any planted crop,

in amazingly green and lush, hilly country defined by the Big Sioux
River of South Dakota ("lots of bindweed, milkweed and cornflowers
blooming")

in an unfenced alfalfa field in Nebraska just across the Missouri
River from South Dakota ("there are short bluffs on both sides of this
flat valley")

in stubby creosote and very little wimpy grass in salty scrubland of
Cantil, California, on the "shore" of Koehn Playa (dry lake)

in the hills above Santa Clarita, California, near the Texas Canyon
Fire Station in the Angeles National Forest ("Three or four
thousandths of a minute east or south, and this waypoint would have
been very difficult to reach")

northwest of Melbourne, in a small lake where several locals were
fishing for redfin, a delicious native fish stocked in the lake

in the Wisconsin woods containing aspen, pine and birch, off a gravel
road running east-west through the woods

in Utti, Finland, just outside the fence of the Finnish Army Airmobile
Jaegers and the Helicopter Battallion, where a few parachutists were
gliding down to earth

in dense woods in Virginia, 400 meters down an old path that might
have been an abandoned power line route

in forested land off a winding road in Ohio with a high percentage of
houses with large vegetable gardens

inside a cloverleaf ramp of IH 70 in St. Charles, Missouri

on the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) tracks just a few blocks north of
the Fremont station

in the "Midtown" section of Tucson, in an unkempt and rundown
neighborhood, near a house with two disabled cars supported by jacks

in Lake Superior, about 30 meters off a dyke around a treatment or
settling pond for the city of Superior's sewage treatment plant

just north of an industrial area near Denver that smells like a
refinery

in right field of a baseball field in New Germany, Minnesota

and in the woods along a rural road in Illinois ("It was late
afternoon and the deer were out. They watched us but didnít run, at
least at first.")

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

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
