his last report in August, 2012, his lead over his closest competitor
was 1,774 points. Jack Frickey passed away on September 21, 2012. At
the close of 2014, the Jack Frickey "Hall of Fame" is being
established to recognize the Geodashing players with the highest score
each year. The 2014 winner is SoccerFanatics. Congratulations. A link
to all previous winners of this award can be found on the Geodashing
home page.

That's Geodashing.

 

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

Game 162 (GDCK) of Geodashing was won by team GeoTerriers, their fifth
win in a row, in a close finish over Laid Back Dashers.

Individual honors go to Grahame Cookie. Honorable mentions go to
Haraldpoiss and RogBarn.

The game saw 36 dashpoint hunts in five countries (US, Australia,
Estonia, Austria and Spain).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

at the end of an hour-long kayak paddle in the tidal waters of Wallis
Lake in New South Wales

in Virginia, at the end of a road through the woods, with old homes
set on large lots including one last house and old barn with a bunch
of old trucks and cars

outside Melbourne, in a neighborhood of single storey brick veneer
properties on small suburban blocks, including one which had a very
impressive dry weather garden bursting with cacti

near Aurora, Utah, in a fenced field for cattle grazing and between a
natural gas facility and the Western Clay Company's facility for
bagging various types of dirt

east of Las Vegas in the Sunrise Mountains, somewhere in the middle of
the Permian and Triassic layers of Rainbow Gardens, "An Open Book of
Earth's History"

about a kilometer's walk from the coast of Muhu island in Estonia,
through junipers that were annoyingly wet

on the grounds of the Richard B. Haydock Intermediate School in
Oxnard, California, scored from the Salvation Army parking lot across
the street

inside the Clifton Springs Primary School outside Geelong, Victoria,
Australia ("It goes against the grain for me to step foot on school
grounds during the holidays but today was an exception.")

among a mixture of sedges, tea trees and a lot of water almost at the
mangrove zone of Botany Bay, New South Wales

outside Searchlight, Nevada, down a gas pipeline road near a solar
power plant under construction

in a harvested soybean field ("Atop a hill with a dusting of snow, we
can see for many miles on this clear cold day, harvested fields in all
directions")

on state trust land in Arizona, just northeast of an unnamed 5600 foot
peak on a small rise just south of an earthen dam with a little bit of
water behind it

and in Austria, beyond where the road ended by a unique privately
owned "railway station" next to a farm-house, to a meadow on the
hillside with a wonderful view to the surrounding mountains and
villages between them

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

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
