Results: Geodashing Game 146 (GDBU)

"I did something extraordinary this time. For a change I took a BUS
to the dashpoint. It was on the outskirts of village Eikla, in a
meadow. I guess the people living in the houses around the meadow must
have found it quite weird to see a strange guy just aimlessly walking
out there. When I wanted to take the bus back to town, a bad surprise
occurred to me. The bus had either come too early or didn't come at
all. And there was 3,5h to the next bus. Which means I walked 3 more
hours in the forest :D"

That's Geodashing in Estonia with Haraldpoiss
"Just past the little village of Emmerton, Virginia, I parked on the
grass at the edge of the road at the Emmanuel Cemetery. This is a
small, old cemetery set in scattered trees. At the edge of the
cemetery, I found a bad dirt track leading generally west toward the
dashpoint, so started walking back that way. This was a tough walk,
with light rain blowing through and water dripping off the trees.
After about 200 meters, the road got better and 100 meters later it
came out to a cornfield. I walked along the edge of the field, just
outside the woods. The field has an irregular shape that fits the
terrain. It is slightly rolling, and drops off to the north, I think
into a stream valley. I walked to the back of the field. The dashpoint
is just a few meters inside the heavy woods at the back of this
field."

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

in Hill 60 Park in Port Kembla, New South Wales, typical coastal
bushland, with the remains of naval fortifications built during World
War II

in the icy waters of Lake Superior in Superior, Wisconsin, near a
grain elevator on Toledo Pier

on the grass of Baltmore's Enoch Platt Free Library, next to a freshly
cut tree stump

5 meters down a roadside bank in New Zealand, in forested land that
has recently been harvested

in a corn field south of Chicago, 3 km from the Chicago Bears training
camp

in a meadow in Estonia with apples, blackberries, blueberries,
lingonberries, strawberries and raspberries

on the edge of the property of a metal stamping and fabricating
company in Ohio

in the middle of the parking lot of a school district maintenance
centre in British Columbia

in a two-story, yellow walk-up on the San Francisco peninsula
currently for sale for $699,000 (visited on three different days by
three different players, none of whom apparently put a bid on the
house)

in a two-story, rather dilapidated apartment building with dirty paint
and run-down yard in Santa Rosa, California

between a soybean field and a nice pasture in the rolling hills of
southern Illinois

in a soybean field in the bottom land between the Mississippi and
Missouri Rivers

in New South Wales, in a very open paddock with long dry grass and a
couple of large cattle

on the east side of CO 105 in a field with five horses and a hill with
a sweeping view, including a very long coal train

on fire trails in New South Wales where the 22nd annual Lake Macquarie
Rogaine was in progress, in well-overgrown terrain with plenty of trip
hazards, mostly "wait-a-while" vines

in a gated resort community called Buccaneer Bay, near the Platte
River in Nebraska, with artificial lagoons to allow boating from your
back yard to the lake

in farm land in Austria with meadows, cows, and a small freshly
harvested rye field

seven kilometers beyond the end of paved road in mostly open, low
brush in the Deschutes National Forest in Oregon

north of York, England, at the bottom of Common Lane, a dead end road
with houses and farm buildings

in a stand of birch and sumac trees in Rome, New York, near historic
transportation landmarks - railroads, the Erie Canal, and the Oneida
Carry, a portage that inspired the canal

off a narrow gravel road on a farm called Le Meytadier, in wooded land
in central France, with lush green farmland and typical French country
villages

in Idaho's the Arban Valley, a very large and hilly agricultural area
covered with rolling fields of wheat

and on a turf farm in New South Wales ("It looks like big blocks of
green carpet. As I was arriving in the morning, the sun was shining
through all of the sprinklers and looked stunning.")

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

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
