Results: Geodashing Game 153 (GDCB)

"There was few degrees minus outside. It was occasionally sunny and
occasionally snowing heavily and very windy. The road that took to the
point was named as the road of "Suur Toll", who used to be the
legendary hero of Saaremaa island. Don't know why, but maybe he's
known to have walked on that road then? The point was in forest. After
visiting it, I took a walk in nearby forest. It's a quiet place there.
When walking back to the bus (4km) there were only 2 cars passing by
me. Of which one stopped and asked if I need a lift. There are really
so many kind people in the small villages of Saaremaa. Or maybe they
just don't want strangers to sneak around and wanna take them away
asap? Who knows."

"Rain.
Rain, rain, rain, rain
Beautiful rain.
Rain, rain, rain, rain
Beautiful rain.
Oh come (never come), oh come (never come)
Oh come to me beautiful rain."
Written by Joseph Shabalala, and performed by Ladysmith Black Mambazo

"After the driest calendar year on record, SoCal was hit a couple of
days ago with rain, which turned into a deluge yesterday and continued
as a steady downpour. We have been in sore need of some rain, and it
has truly been a beautiful sight. Amazingly, as I drove along the
freeway to grab this DP after work, nearly every driver was acting
with intelligence in the rain, taking things slowly, mostly with
headlights on, not crowding the car in front of them. It made it a lot
easier to safely get wherever each person was going!"

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

Game 153 (GDCB) of Geodashing was won by team GeoTerriers, their
fourth win in a row.

Individual honors go to four players -- Dashing Dog Mac, Madam Dash,
Fobrokel, and SoccerFanatics.

The game saw only 42 dashpoint hunts in six countries (Australia, US,
Germany, UK, Estonia and the Czeck Republic).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

by a beautiful tree and stacks of wood on a small country road near
the village of Jöhlingen, Germany

near Stoke-on-Trent by an unusual half-timbered church

at the restaurant "Grüner Baum" near Ottersweier, Germany, where a
"tree face" greets visitors

on Australia's Mornington Peninsula, on private land that has been
cleared and replanted with native trees

under the spreading branches of a HUGE Morton Bay fig tree in New
South Wales

in a wholesale plant nursery about 70 kilometres east of Melbourne

in Nevada, just off US 93, where there is snow on the mountains on
either side of the valley but lots of dry stream beds running downhill

in the dry, parched plains around Diggers Rest, Victoria, Australia,
by a boarding kennel and a cattery named DogDayz and KoolCats

right in the middle of Sicklebrook Lane off Eckington Road near
Dronfield (as an American, I never tire of hearing English place
names)

in Illinois, in some grass and mushy snow at the top edge of the ditch
of the frontage road of IH 55, with  typical Illinois farmland,
currently dormant and fairly wet, on either side

in New South Wales, beyond a gate with a typical "Ozzie" chain and
latch ("as I opened the gate I scared a 'mob' of wallabies away. Very
cute.")

on a road through open desert north of Tucson, not too far from the
Dove Mountain Golf Course that had just hosted the Accenture Match
Play Golf Tournament

and in Nevada, just off US 95, near nothing but stony ground, sand in
the washes, and scattered small bushes

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

You learn the darnedest things from Geodashing:

"At dawn on 18 March 1910 famous American escapologist Harry Houdini
made the first Australian powered, controlled, sustained flight of an
aircraft in Australia at Plumpton Dam, Diggers Rest."
-- Hat tip to DDM and MD for leading me to Google up that fact.

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

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 .
