Results: Geodashing Game 178 (GDDA)

"I parked at the base of the dam having already driven within 10 meters, and
easily zeroed out the point. But the photo was rather middling and I figured
there'd be a better photo at the top of the dam. I decided to hoof it up the
trail, getting a good workout in the process of finding more stunning scenery.
Getting there... or even getting somewhere else for a good photo after getting
there... is all the fun."

That's Geodashing in California with Aquadyne
"We made a quick drive over to Illinois to grab this closest to home DP for
the month. I found it between an outbuilding behind a small farm house and a
large farm field. The farm field, like many we saw as we drove down the rural
roads, is being prepared for planting and had purple clover growing in it. At
some places, if my sight angle was just right and the clover was dense enough,
I could see a purple blanket growing from the nearest edge of the field,
undulating up and over the slight changes in elevation and disappearing in the
distance. Yellow dandelions growing in the 10 foot right-of-way between the
road and the field added even more color to the sight. It was a colorful
sight to see."

That's Geodashing in Illinois with Rogbarn

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

Game 178 (GDDA) of Geodashing was won by team GeoTerriers, their fifth win in
a row. Honorable mention goes to Llama League and Laid Back Dashers.

Individual honors go to SoccerFanatics.

The game saw 50 dashpoint hunts in just three countries (US, Australia and
Germany).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

on the front porch of a light blue house with a wide raised porch just a long
frisbee throw from the entrance to the main historic building of Illinois's
Wheaton College

in Seal Beach, California, in a one-story, gray house with palm trees and
gingkos in front and lots of crushed white rock as border

in Duncannon, Pennsylvania, in a one-story, brick house with a white frame
addition and a glider on the front porch

south of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, in the woods behind a row of large homes on
large lots along a ridge line

in Virginia, behind Valley Bible Church, reached via Zion Church Road to
Refuge Church Road to Double Church Road

west of Melbourne, in a new housing estate with a few houses under
construction, west of near a small lake with a walking track

in a for-sale, modern low brick house with a man hand-watering young trees
lining the driveway, trying to keep them alive in the very, very dry area

on a farm in New South Wales, scorable from the road, saving a walk through a
"forest" of "Farmer's Friends" (or "Sticky Beaks" as some call them)

on a farm field in Illinois covered with a blanket of purple clover bordered
by yellow dandelions growing in the right-of-way along the road

in a large, lush field of grass in Vacaville, California, near a new
neighborhood under construction

in Minnesota, in the woods along Old Military Road, the historic road along
the St. Croix River linking the Mississippi River at Point Douglas to Lake
Superior

down a dirt trail suitable only for motor bikes, in the Lake Macquarie State
Recreation Area in New South Wales

in Iowa farm country, in a field of very dark dirt, recently tilled and maybe
planted, about a half mile from the nearest farm house

in Minnesota's Rum River State Forest where some of the trees had a hint of
green as the new leaf buds were just starting to open

near a small, old-looking log cabin on the campus of Virginia's Randolph
College, alma mater of Pearl Buck ("The Good Earth")

in Westboro, Missouri, in a fenced pature area just past a small creek

in Illinois, along a rural road between two bridges over small creeks, in an
untilled field with some golden rod growing in

in a field in Illinois with corn plants about 2 inches tall ("In about 5
months, the corn plants will be 8 to 10 feet tall and the tops will wave in
the wind")

in the backyard of a house in nice development in Nebraska ("Scored just as
storm was beginning. Saw an awesome double rainbow up the road")

200 meters off a dirt/gravel road in New South Wales, in thick, thorny vines
and 100 meters beyond a wall of impenetrable growth

and in Victoria, Australia, out of reach behind a fence with warning signs on
its gate plus two Australian flags and about 100 empty beer cans (Victoria
Bitter) strung like a necklace on the top strand of barbed wire above the gate

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

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
