Results: Geodashing Game 147 (GDBV)

"This point was in sea, 140m from coast of Saaremaa and 24m from the
closest islet. Water was only 0.5m deep, so basically I could have
walked there through the sea, but as I had taken my kayak with me, I
used this of course. The bottom and the shores around there were quite
soft and muddy anyway. As I was there already, I made a longer tour on
the beautiful Kunnati and Kõiguste bays afterwards. It was rather
windy out there at this day, but quite ok otherwise."

That's Geodashing in Estonia with Haraldpoiss

 

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

Game 147 (GDBV) of Geodashing was won by team "GeoTerriers." Honorable
mention goes to team Llama League.

Individual honors are shared by Dashing Dog Mac and Madam Dash.
Honorable mention goes to RogBarn.

The game saw 72 dashpoint hunts in five countries (Australia, Germany,
US, UK, and Estonia).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

in Kunnati Bay of the North Sea off the coast of Estonia's Saarema
island

in the Potomac River, less than 100 meters off the Virginia shore, but
technically in Maryland, unreachable for lack of public land along the
shore

in Victoria, Australia, in a brick house with large yuccas in a fairly
new suburb close to Cranbourne Golf Course

in a muddy farm field in Germany with a view of Marienburg castle

in Omaha, Nebraska's Skutt Catholic High School, flying banners
proudly proclaiming to be one of the top 50 high schools to receive
the U.S. Dept of Education Blue Ribbon Award

in New South Wales, 58 meters behind a fence at a former Australian
Defence Industries munitions factory site, now home to emus and
kangaroos ("I was greeted by an emu upon arrival!")

in New Mexico, in flat land with lots of sticker bushes on the edge of
the White Sands Missile Range, 24 km north of the Trinity atomic bomb
testing site

in the bush in New South Wales ("with spring here, a lot of native
plants are flowering and it looked quite pretty")

in a ponderosa pine forest mixed with sagebrush near Flaming Gorge
reservoir in northeast Utah on the eastern edge of the Uintah
Mountains

in Tennessee, just off a very narrow road just past the Harrisburg
Covered Bridge

off Clarksville Highway in Tennessee, near several old clapboard ranch
houses with an out building with old signs nailed to it advertising
Nehigh, RC Cola, Kay's Ice Cream and Sargent's Paint

in the middle of a residential block in Friesdorf, Germany, in the
garden behind a white garage, guarded by a high fence and a security
camera

in Eureka, Missouri, in a new subdivision with closely spaced,
two-story houses with brick facades on the ground level and dormers on
the upper story

in a two story house in Hillsborough, California, with a front porch
framed by slender columns ("if you dicker you can pick it up for a
mere $1.7 million")

outside Chicago, in a cornfield, now in full tasseled regalia,
awaiting the late summer drying and ultimate harvest

in flat, hot, dry farmland near Iowa State University

in the small town of Onyx, California, near Bakersfield, on a dirt
road leading to a landmark the maps call "Indian Cemetery"

in Missouri, in woods across a dry creek bed in the rolling hills
south of the Missouri River, surrounded by what the maps say should be
cemetery, but without markers of any kind

in scrubby brush of Victoria, Australia's Rushworth State Forest, with
screeching white cockatoos and pink and grey galahs in abundance

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

Congratulations to chaosmanor, whose visit to GDBV_AJID near Santa
Barbara marked 120 consecutive months (yep, that's ten years!) of
Geodashing with at least one successful hunt in each month.

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

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
http://GPSgames.org .
