Results: Geodashing Game 179 (GDDB)

"The dashpoint had fallen on the easternmost island of Pakri archipelago,
across the 3km wide strait from mainland. It's basically not deep between
there and if you go from the right place at the right angle then, according to
the map, it should possible to cross strait Kurkse on foot. But if it's cold
and stormy and you loose your way then you may easily drown, like it happened
to 14 people on 11 September 1997. It would have been possible to reach to
500m from the point by sea, but I decided to disembark a little bit further
towards north-west, next to an old wooden boat-wreck. The point was in forest
and there was nothing interesting around the place. After having reached
successfully to the destination, I decided to visit also the western island of
the archipelago, where I was greeted by a dead cow laying on the ground at the
place where I landed. There's 6 people in total living at the archipelago and
I didn't happen to meet any of them during my visit."

That's Geodashing in Estonia with Haraldpoiss
==================================

Game 179 (GDDB) of Geodashing was won by team Llama League, breaking a string
of five wins by GeoTerriers, who finished second. Laid Back Dashers were
closely followed by En Dash! for third.

Individual honors go to deodasher and Douq Millar.

The game saw 77 dashpoint hunts in five countries (Australia, US, Estonia, UK,
and Austria).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

in Estonia, near a free-to-use self-service public guesthouse with smoke-sauna
and several camping facilities

in an industrial area of Melbourne, along a pot-holed road lined with a high
brick fence tagged with colourful graffiti

out of reach on the Williamtown RAAF Base in New South Wales

under loose chicken wire, through a lot of blackberry bush, over a flowing
creek, in open pasture land in New South Wales

in a low drainage portion of a fallow field in Nebraska, in smoke filled air
from wildfires in Minnesota

in Victoria, Australia, down a slick clay path and in between rows of possibly
30 year old pine trees

in the woods on the side a divided highway in Pennsylvania, near the Weiser
Farm Market ("Be Wise, Buy Weiser")

just past the intersection of Gunpowder Road with Clipper Mill Road in
Maryland, near a very old RV with part of the hood removed

in Illinois, in a fenced corral where two very nice looking horses were
casually grazing

inside a waste metal recycling area in Aston, England, whose local football
team, Aston Villa, has been bought by a Chinese businessman

in Sugarloaf Reservoir in Victoria, Australia, more than 100 meters from shore
even though the water level is down 6m

in an empty paddock in Victoria, Australia, near the historic Muckleford
Railway Station, used in the film "The Dressmaker"

in a meadow in central Austria, near the golf course "Golfclub-Reiting"

in a plowed field in Nebraska, in hilly land with spring-green grass and lots
of Lewis and Clark historical markers

in South Dakota, in more featureless farm country where one mile is
indistinguishable from another, near a billboard that says, "Eat steak, wear
fur, carry guns - it's the American Way!"

in Arizona, near a house with two lion statues perched upon either side of a
wide open gate and a large stained glass door

in central California, in natural desert landscape that has not been leveled
for farming ("the creosote bushes were fairly healthy but the elder Joshua
trees seemed to be aging a bit")

halfway up the side of Black Mountain in the Sloan Canyon National
Conservation Area near Henderson, Nevada ("The hike was grueling work and I
shouldn't have waited until the hottest point in the afternoon")

in front of home in Fairfield, California, on a street where all homes are
various shades of tan with slightly different stonework entryways

in a marsh in Mississippi down a dirt road that multiple water trucks were
using

in New Jersey, just off the Greenwood Lake Turnpike, near a bridge over the
Monksville Reservoir in the Wanaque Wildlife Preserve

and on railroad tracks across from American Legion Post 403 outside Des
Moines, Iowa, scored on Memorial Day

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

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
