Geodashing: Nov16   Print  E-mail 
Contributed by Scout  
Results: Geodashing Game 185 (GDDH)

"It was possible to drive to 450m, from where the trail continued through the
forest to a snow-covered meadow. There was freshly fallen snow everywhere. As
the soil under the snow was not frozen yet, there was fog floating above the
meadow due to the steaming mist that was condensing in the cold air. All this
together looked just amazingly peaceful and beautiful."

That's Geodashing in Estonia with Haraldpoiss

"We drove towards Macedon, northwest of Melbourne, into this timber harvesting
area looking for the quaintly named Finger Post Road. We followed this rough
gravel road through the heart of the dense eucalypt forest / plantation until
we reached the intersection with Burnt Mill Road. The sign for this track had
been recently riddled with shotgun pellets but we still felt safe enough in
daylight. We stopped the car at 59 metres and then I took Jock for a short
walk into the scrubby bush until I could stand him on the zero point. It was
easy walking with only sparse undergrowth in the open bush. On the way into
the scrubby forest we had passed many beautiful rural properties with signs
not only warning of 'Private Property, Keep Out', but also road warnings of
'Ducks Crossing' and 'Resident Koala Crossing.' Probably city hobby farmers
living in a rural setting."

That's Geodashing in Victoria, Australia, with Dashing Dog Mac

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

Game 185 (GDDH) of Geodashing was won by team GeoTerriers, their third win in
a row, this time in a three-point squeaker over team Llama League (59-56).

Individual honors go to SoccerFanatics. Honorable mention goes to Douq Millar.

The game saw 57 dashpoint hunts in five countries (US, Australia, Estonia, New
Zealand, and the UK).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

on the edge of a small lake on the campus of Latrobe University in Melbourne

down a grassy hill by the observatory of the University Western Sydney
(Werrington North/Penrith) Campus

in the sports stadium parking of the private school of Nazareth Academy in
Western Springs, Illinois

in Oklahoma, in the yard of a rundown white house with many vehicles, across
the road from a rundown brown brick building with a "Bingo Every Friday" sign

on the long driveway leading to the Bulverde Area Humane Society Animal
Shelter north of San Antonio

in Agoura Hills, California, on a hillside in a neighborhood park with a nice
playground, walking paths, trees, and a very large grass area good for flying
kites and tossing frisbees

in Michigan on I-69 next to the Lapeer Country Club golf course ("stunning
this time of year with the change of the leaves")

on the "Easts Leisure & Golf Club" outside Newcastle, New South Wales, by a
pond with what sounded like all of the frogs from the plague of the Egyptian
Pharaoh

in Kansas, on the westbound side if I-70, surrounded by grasslands and farms

in the forest beside Blueskin Road just out of Dunedin, New Zealand

in a large shed at a farmstead in Minnesota, in an area where about half of
the corn fields and all of the soybean fields are harvested

in very flat Oklahoma farmland, with dusty unharvested soybeans in the field
on one side and pretty green winter wheat on the other side

in a field of alfalfa and oil wells in Oklahoma

260 meters uphill in a field full of sheep in South Downs National Park near
Southampton, England

in a grassy field across the road from an alpaca farm in the Dorset Area of
Natural Beauty in southern England

in the front yard of a brick and stone new home in an exburb subdivision of
Oklahoma City ("big homes on spacious lots with lots of trees in a slightly
hilly area")

outside the village of Brogwyn, Wales, down a single track road with poor
pavement, just past a huge old tree and just on the other side of a hedgerow

in New South Wales, in a weed-infested section of scrub the other side of a
jumble of boulders near a sign "This is a Friends of the Bush Restoration
Project"

in Illinois, in a farm field covered with birds, probably starlings, gleaning
corn left over from the harvest

west of Melbourne, a short walk through the tall thin gums of a eucalypt
plantation

in Prunedale, California, behind dense trees and greenery that prevent seeing
what's actually at the zero point ("it probably involves more of the
aforementioned trees and greenery")

next to Emmanuel Episcopal Church in St. Louis, near a plaque built into the
wall showing the original date of the church, 1866

in Pennsylvania, beyond the back of the parking lot for the Rawlinsville
United Methodist Church, a very plain red brick building

and on the Melliodora Miniature Goat Farm outside Melbourne, Australia,
visited on the day that the Curse of the Billy Goat was broken and the Chicago
Cubs won their first World Series in 108 years

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

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
