Results: Geodashing Game 166 (GDCO)

"We are on the dry side of the mountains now, there is absolutely no
snow here.  But it's much colder. All the slush and rain that had
accumulated on our vehicle prior to this attempt froze our doors shut.
Approximately 4 kms before reaching the point, we reached a sign
indicating the end of public road, forcing us to find a side road on
the other side of the railroad tracks. We found a tiny railroad
crossing, leading onto Fording River Road. But it didn't look like the
road had been traveled at all in the past few years. Forging ahead,
pushing the tall grass aside with the hood of our vehicle, we started
making our way up this unused road. 600 meters before reaching the
dashpoint, we found the road had been permanently closed, and a large
earth barricade had been placed across the road, as high as our
vehicle. Not traveling over 9 hours on the road to let a small hill
defeat us, I got out in the frozen soupy black night, and hiked a
further half kilometre to score this dash point."

That's Geodashing in Alberta, Canada with Jibber00

"I am participating in the Ragnar Relay SoCal. It's a 200(ish) mile
relay race with 12 runners; I'm assigned runner #6, and have to do
three legs of the relay. My first leg was a 6.7 mile hilly beast, and
the course brought me up the Tustin Branch trail. I took a photo
during my run when I broke off the trail at Fairhaven avenue, within a
mile of the point. Had this been an individual race, I would have put
in the extra 2 miles to go round trip to the dashipoint and score it
on foot, but I had a team waiting on me to get to the exchange point
so I did the responsbile thing and finished my run, and then drove to
the point in our team van."

That's Geodashing in southern California with Aquadyne

"We drove due east from Melbourne towards the Dandenong Ranges,
passing through the mountain town of Seville and eventually reaching
the small town of Gladysdale. This area was comprised of many
equestrian properties and at least two vineyards. The leaves on the
vines were all golden and the trees displayed full autumn colours
throughout this beautiful hilly area. We turned on to Hazeldene Road
and drove on this unmade road through the hills and bush which
contained temperate rainforest, tree ferns and tall straight gum
trees."

That's Geodashing in Victoria, Australia with Dashing Dog Mac

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

Game 166 (GDCO) of Geodashing was won by team GeoTerriers, their ninth
win in a row, by a single point over Llama League. Honorable mention
goes to Laid Back Dashers.

Individual honors go to Grahame Cookie. Honorable mentions go to
SoccerFanatics, Dashing Dog Mac, and Madam Dash.

The game saw 52 dashpoint hunts in six countries (US, Canada, Germany,
Australia, UK and Estonia).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

along the narrow and twisty Tunitas Creek Road in a dense forest of
redwood trees southeast of Half Moon Bay, California

in Germany, on the left side of the river Rhein, in a large
recreational park area in the (former capital) city of Bonn and Bad
Godesberg

in Alberta, Canada, on private property, on a dead end road ("it's
absolutely gorgeous, with ice fog at an elevation of just over 1300
meters")

in Queensland, down a single lane dirt lane lined with grass higher
than the car, in a freshly ploughed field, visited under the BEAUTIFUL
light of a full moon

only 230 meters from the entrance to Hoover Forest Preserve outside
Chicago, a park that hosts winter cabin camping for Boy Scouts

north of Boise, Idaho, up a wide, dusty trail going up a ridge line,
surrounded by low vegetation and scattered, scrubby bushes ("This time
of year, the plants are still green, but it looks like the hills here
get very dry in summer.")

in an apartment car park (a couple were just heading out on their
pushbikes") in Palm Beach on the coast of Queensland

outside Derby, England, in the middle of Staker Lane, just down from
White Lodge Farm

in the middle of CA-23 freeway, about 2km from the Ronald Reagan
Presidential Library ("nothing to see here but the signals, medians,
'landscaping' (I use the word loosely)")

in Estonia, on a small meadow next to a farmhouse in village Upa

and in a very green pasture with a small creek flowing through it in
fairly flat farm country in Iowa, unfortunately close to a pig farm

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

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
