Results: Geodashing Game 183 (GDDF)

"This point is not far from Wolf Creek pass/summit just off Utah Highway 35.
Good thing this was during a nice-weather month as this road is closed in the
wintertime. So we parked as close as we could to the DP and I took off
climbing a rather steep embankment. I have to admit I was bit short of breath
during this hike as the elevation is about 9,500 feet. Beautiful place. I had
to hike close to a quarter of mile to get to the DP, uphill all the way. Lots
of pine trees and evidence of deer/elk in the area. Afterward I remembered
that it was archery season and it would have been wise to have been wearing
red/orange. This area is in the western portion of the Uinta Mountains and it
is very scenic."

That's Geodashing in Utah with losabuelos
==================================

Game 183 (GDDF) of Geodashing was won by team GeoTerriers, breaking a string
of four games won by Llama League. Llama League earned honorable mention.

Individual honors go to SoccerFanatics, thanks in part to a mad dash around
England. Honorable mention goes to RogBarn.

The game saw 51 dashpoint hunts in seven countries (US, Brazil, Canada,
Australia, UK, New Zealand, and Germany).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

inside an apartment building in London, across from Langthorne Park with a
little pond with a tiny island with a gazebo and a mosaic with a dragon motif

near the front door of Galilee Korean Church in Rotorua, New Zealand

in the middle of a field in front of a massive house on the coast of the
island of Jersey, a Crown dependency off the coast of Normandy

in New South Wales, down a dirt and rutted track, called Baldwins Track, in
the open bush of Kumbatine National Park

in southern California, in mostly high-desert juniper scrub with a few pine
trees, just north of Frazier Mountain Park Road, near an abortive development
of cabins, called Juniper Ridge ("the gate and fence are all that stands")

in an open, fenced field in Maryland, home to an old brick structure in the
field of unknown origin or purpose

at the edge of a park in Pasadena, Maryland, that is home to four baseball
fields, of different sizes, to accommodate ages from 4 years to 15

in a single story brick house, past the horse club, aerodrome, golf club and
shooting club all interspersed with some pretty poor neighbourhoods in Porto
Alegre, Brazil

on a major street next to a martial arts gym in Germany

in the parking lot of an ice arena in Minnesota

in British Columbia, in the heart of ranch country so the ground is open with
only a few patches of trees

just off the Claremont Hills Wilderness Trail in California

in rolling hills of the Yarra Valley northeast of Melbourne ("very green and
lush with many fruit growing and cattle grazing properties")

in a cul de sac in a new subdivision south of Omaha, Nebraska, with a nice
mixture of homes, all large, a few very large, all with the same basic look
("not quite McMansions")

in a cul de sac on a quiet suburban street of neat brick houses adjoining
Altona Reservoir southwest of Melbourne

on US Rt. 67 in Missouri, a major highway with fairly heavy traffic on a
holiday weekend, near a side road to Paw Paw Campground

in a generally flat area with lush green paddocks southeast of Melbourne ("I
was taking photos of about twenty black steers when two horse riders trotted
down the road. One was dressed as a real cowgirl wearing a white stetson hat
and the full regalia.")

in the western portion of Utah's Uinta Mountains not far from the Wolf Creek
pass/summit

a long way down some dirt roads in Missouri to a "hollow," a small flat area
between hills that is good for farming

a mile down a dirt road, in deep woods inside Missouri's Mark Twain National
Forest

down a dirt road south of Pueblo, Colorado, near an abandoned and weathered
farm site collapsing from age and disuse and a gated driveway with an elk and
quail on either sides of a double gate

in Missouri, in front of a vineyard with neat rows of grape arbors

in England, down a single track road ("more like a 3/4 track road") past the
village of Cerney Wick ("chartered in AD 999, according to the sign")

north of Duchesne, Utah, in sagebrush terrain not far from the municipal
airport, near a driveway that goes to a mobile home

and in Fremont, California, in a mobile home with an orange and black "San
Francisco Giants World Champions" banner proudly displayed out front

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

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
