Results: Geodashing Game 184 (GDDG)

"The dashpoint was 166 meters from where we parked, and is marked by a couple
of stubby cottonwood trees. At some time in the past, the area where the DP
sits was a pond of some sort, and this can be seen on some satellite shots.
The area is totally dry, now, at least on the surface. The comparative health
of many of the trees speaks of subterranean water, however. We would have
been able to score this, barely, had the 'lake' been full, and the many broken
and dumped TV sets that we saw on our walkabout would have been underwater, or
disposed of elsewhere."

That's Geodashing in central California with chaosmanor
==================================

Game 184 (GDDG) of Geodashing was won by team GeoTerriers, their second win in
a row. Llama League earned honorable mention.

Individual honors go to SoccerFanatics. Honorable mention goes to RogBarn.

The game saw 43 dashpoint hunts in six countries (US, Canada, Estonia,
Australia, New Zealand, and UK).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

in Estonia, in a small lake in a swamp that is part of Rabivere nature reserve
("It was cold and windy and cloudy, but not raining. At least not in the
beginning. At least not heavily. I spent there 8 hours outside in nature.")

in open desert in an undeveloped quad between Tucson and Phoenix

in a dried-up pond in central California, surrounded by broken and dumped
television sets that used to be underwater

north of Melbourne, in a large flat paddock with very high tufts of grass and
plenty of mud and water lying around due to the heavy rains over the past few
weeks ("The drought is well and truly over!")

on the big island of Hawaii, near the historic homes on the Parker Ranch, at
250,000 acres one of the USA's largest ranches

in a farm paddock just of Dunedin on the South Island of New Zealand

in Utah, 250 meters from a jeep trail with fist-sized stones mixed with sand,
on a ridge running up a wash

in gold-colored grass covering the hills in California's Gold Country east of
La Grange, California

in a dried out, but not harvested corn field in Iowa

only a couple of meters off the roadway by a house for sale ("In interior
British Columbia with so much wilderness and mountainous terrain not too many
like this."

in a back yard outside of Chicago, in the Brookeridge Subdivision and
Brookeridge Airpark, adjoined areas where residents have their own private
airplane hangers as attached garages ("Fly in Homes")

in Virginia, behind a Family Dollar store in woods behind a Candlewood Suites
hotel

in Rose Hill, Virginia, out of sight, inside a tall, unpainted wood fence

a short walk up a hill in the middle of a residential back yard in Kelowna,
British Columbia

at a small, abandoned and boarded up house, painted red, an exception to this
St. Louis neighborhood that is mostly neat and inviting ("We saw barbeque
smokers out and cooking. There would be a good group of well-fed people here
later on.")

and behind a historic pub and inn called The Cock and Rabbit Inn in the small
English village of The Lee "A new sign says they are donating money from each
meal to relief efforts for the Italian earthquake")

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

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
