Results: Geodashing Game 164 (GDCM)

"It was a cloudy winter day with temperature around 0C. The road to
the dashpoint started from Kuivastu harbor. It's the famous paved road
to the village named Voikula, which would mean 'Butter Village' in
English. The road was built by the last Emperor of Russia, Nicholas
II, in the beginning of 20th century to access the powerful cannon
battery on the coast. It's 3km from the harbor to the village and one
more km from there to the dashpoint. As you can imagine, this old road
is not especially car-friendly, but luckily there was some snow on it,
which made it little bit smoother. The point was in woods, near the
edge of a meadow. After visiting it, I took a walk on coastal plains
towards Voilaid (The Butter Islet)."

That's Geodashing in Estonia with Haraldpoiss

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

Game 164 (GDCM) of Geodashing was won by team GeoTerriers, their
seventh win in a row. Individual honors go to Tom Arneson.

The game saw 33 dashpoint hunts in four countries (Australia, US,
Estonia and the Czech Republic).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

in the woods near the edge of a meadow on the coastal plains of the
island of Muhu in Estonia

in the corner of Ohlendorf West County Park, west of St. Louis, at the
end of 350 meters of hilly walking through open lands, woods, and
across a stream ("a nice hike on a chilly Saturday morning")

near a great oak along an educational trail (Jindrova naucna stezka)
in the valley created by Hamersky brook in the Czech Republic

out of reach down poorly maintained logging roads in Capitol State
Forest west of Olympia, Washington ("It was raining and clouds hung
low, just above the trees. The wet climate made the woods heavy with
moss which added to the eerie feeling.")

in Salem, Utah, in a farm yard filled with old, broken-down equipment
along with some newer equipment that was being repaired and prepared
for spring farm work

in a steep ravine in Tacoma, Washington, an interesting wild spot in
the middle of the urban jungle

not too far from a rickety wooden slab bridge over a roaring flooding
creek near Tamban, New South Wales

in the median of Australia's Pacific Highway (A1) about midway between
Sydney and Brisbane

in Virginia, down a dead end road that ends at Bull Run, lined with
large homes on large properties set far back off the road

behind a brown stucco house with saguaro cactus and a mesquite tree in
a yard of brown rock gravel, on the green for one of the holes of
Tucson's Starr Pass Golf Club

near a one-story ranch style home, with an orange brick front, in a
fairly new subdivision southwest of Chicago, HighPoint Estates and
Golf Club

in Trafalgar, Victoria, Australia, in a new residential area of single
storey brick homes, with a few empty blocks spread through it. ("The
dashpoint block was overgrown with long grass and there was a sign on
the fence advertising 'NEED A BLOCK MOWED?'")

behind a white two-story home with avocado green trim on a quiet
cul-de-sac in a residential part of Hayward, California

inside the police station in the heart of the historic township of
Trentham in the goldfield region of Victoria, Australia

and in the "gorgeous rough-and-tumble" Mojave Desert outside Joshua
Tree, California

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

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
