Results: Geodashing Game 170 (GDCS)

"As it's been usual for me during the recent weeks, I tried out the
nice features of Danish public transport system yesterday, by taking
the train from Copenhagen to Ny Hagested. The only bad thing was that
the train didn't stop in Ny Hagested, but just passed through it :))
So I had to walk 4km from the next station back to the point. But
whatever, the weather was nice and sunny and actually I enjoyed it.
The point was in a corner of a potato field, next to some bushes."

That's Geodashing in Denmark with Haraldpoiss

 

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

Game 170 (GDCS) of Geodashing was won by team GeoTerriers, their
thirteenth win in a row. They scored more points than all other teams
combined!

Individual honors go to SoccerFanatics with honorable mentions to Tom
Arneson and RogBarn.

The game saw 36 dashpoint hunts in six countries (US, Australia,
Denmark, Germany, New Zealand and South Africa).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

in a future gated community in the larger planned community of "The
Paseos" west of Las Vegas, where great views of the distant mountains
are not yet blocked by new homes

in New Zealand, on a roadside very close to a walking and cycling
track that follows the bed of the now-closed Otago Central Branch
Railway Line, with paddocks all around

in South Africa, just over a fence, with lovely bushveld vegetation
all around ("I suspect that the farmer has wild game on his farm due
to the high fencing.")

in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains east of Salt Lake City,
where a 0.68 acre vacant lot is for sale for $399,000 ("a steep, rocky
building lot!")

in a single storey brick house with an established garden in a
suburban estate with plenty of land available for further development
on the northern fringe of Melbourne

down a decently graded dirt road running parallel to I-84 in Idaho,
down a not so well graded side track, and on rolling ground in
scattered brush

on the ramp to I-80 at the airport in Salt Lake City, Utah

in a woods in Germany, where the hunters in their towers shoot only
evil foxes and wild boars

in a woods south of Bucksport, Maine, near a school and nice
walking/biking trails

in a woods in Maryland behind a recent development of large, 4-story
townhouses with garages on the ground floor

in an empty retention ditch 21 miles south of Chicago

next to a large but shallow pond in Missouri, on open land full of
weeds that hasn't been farmed for a long time

in a corn field in Minnesota where the crop is about 2 meters tall and
looking fairly good

in a tunnel of corn south of Omaha, Nebraska ("the corn is unusually
high probably due to unusually high rainfall")

behind the backstop of the baseball field of the Burlingame,
California, high school

and in Minnesota, on the running track of the Hopkins campus of Blake
School, a prestigious pre-K-12 private school

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

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
