Results: Geodashing Game 157 (GDCF)

"We continued on through the deluge of rain and hail that had started
and found a field of trees containing the dashpoint off Buckleys Lane.
The GPSr read 189 metres in the car. We were able to squeeze through a
wombat hole in the wire fence (and wombats are not that large) and
then walked to 48 metres at the next fenceline. There had been plenty
of cows in this field at some stage, and with the rain, and crawling
on our bellies under the fence, we both ended up with clothing smeared
with animal excreta. Not a good look, and we had to go out to dinner
later that night. Never mind, we scored the points, and took some
photos of this beautiful hilly area. We did get home in time to have a
shower and a change of clothes. Our dinner companions that night had
little idea of what we had been through earlier that day."

That's Geodashing in Australia with Dashing Dog Mac

 

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

Game 157 (GDCF) of Geodashing was won by team Llama League, breaking a
string of seven wins by GeoTerriers, who took second place this month.
Trailblazers finished third.

Individual honors go to deodasher. Honorable mentions go to Douq
Millar and Tom Arneson.

The game saw 85 dashpoint hunts in six countries (US, UK, Estonia,
Australia, Germany and Czech Republic).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

in a drainage ditch in Las Vegas ("One takes one's life in one's hands
entering a drainage ditch during a storm, but this morning was sunny
and bright. Before I got back to my car my phone alerted me of a flash
flood warning in the nearby mountains.")

in a meadow with knee-high grass near Bradford, England

in San Jose, in a parking lot, 87 meters behind a razor-wire topped
gate with a chain and no-trespassing sign, across the street from the
Happy Hollow Zoo

in Estonia, in soft forest behind a very wet and soft swamp ("it was
possible to move only by stepping from sod to sod, keeping good
balance")

in Clear Lake, a large recreational lake near the Johnson Space Center
outside Houston ("if it had been any further out in the lake I could
not have done it")

in an irrigated cornfield on river bottom land outside Columbus,
Nebraska ("I was surprised to see ditchweed, aka marijuana, lining the
cornfield")

in Minnesota, south of Quilt Drive, a gravel road through farm
country, east of a swale that is untilled to prevent erosion with
corn fields to both east and west

in bushland near Corindi Beach, New South Wales ("I walked into the
bushland towards zero and immediately saw a large kangaroo peering
intently at me")

on the golf course of the Lake Arbor Golf Club in Arvada, Colorado

west of Highway 95 just prior to the town of Searchlight, Nevada
("Across the street was a giant billboard advertising the Aquarius
Casino and Resort in Laughlin and another for the Searchlight
Community Church where everybody was welcome.")

just off Arizona 77 near the entrance to Biosphere 2, the huge
ecological research center run by the University of Arizona

across the BUSY Victoria Road in Rozelle, New South Wales, a suburb of
Sydney ("65 m was the closest I was game to get, cause if I had
crossed the traffic it would have taken 'forever' to get there and
back")

on the grounds of the Police Training Academy northeast of Kansas
City, in a racetrack area "where trainees learn to drive wild and
crazy"

just off a soybean field in Kansas ("lots of clover, Queen Anne's
lace, Patridge peas, small sunflowers and an orange flowered plant
which I can't identify")

in a soybean field in Illinois ("In fact, both sides of the road were
soybeans and a lot of the immediate area was soybeans.  Usually, we
see mostly or entirely corn.")

beyond reach in on-base housing of Scott Air Force Base in Illinois

and close to a road in somewhat rugged and heavily wooded country of
Nebraska's Indian Cave State Park

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

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 .
