Geodashing: Feb17   Print  E-mail 
Contributed by Scout  
Results: Geodashing Game 188 (GDDK)

"I walked between two sets of townhomes on Tygart Lane into the wood. I
grabbed a couple of photos and then left the way I came. On my way out an
older gentleman politely asked me if it was okay to ask what I was doing. I
said sure and explained. He thought that it was geocaching as he used to work
the grounds in Black Hills Regional park and remembered coming across them
quite often. I explained it was very similar, but there was nothing to find,
just a virtual point on the ground. He was good with that and went back
inside."

That's Geodashing in Maryland with sfcchaz
==================================

Game 188 (GDDK) of Geodashing was won by team GeoTerriers. A distant honorable
mention goes to Llama League.

Individual honors go to SoccerFanatics. Honorable mentions go to Dashing Dog
Mac, Madam Dash and sfcchaz.

The game saw 48 dashpoint hunts in five countries (Australia, US, Austria,
Canada, and Estonia).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

among the sheep and cattle grazing properties of Woomagarma, Victoria,
Australia

in British Columbia, beyond the end of a maintained road, beyond the limits of
AWD, on with the snow boots into the forest to a steep dropoff into a gully

in Warrandyte, a green outer northeastern suburb of Melbourne, on Everard
Street which runs uphill from the Yarra River, where there is a commemorative
plaque for the local Aborigninal people, the Wurundjeri

on the South Gippsland freeway southeast of Melbourne, near a farm selling
eggs (Maytime Poultry Farm)

south of Baltimore, near a white Cape Cod-style house with a detached garage
on the right and two tiers of wooden beams used as a retention wall in front

on a road through an apartment complex in Randallstown, Maryland, near a wall
leading down to a water retention pond

in a single level cream brick house in a fairly new suburb of Canberra ("it
was so hot, 42 degrees, we didn't linger to get any closer.")

on the Hume Highway north of Melbourne, in a grassy paddock scattered with gum
trees and cavorting magpies

in a muddy and snowy unfenced soybean field in Nebraska

near the Minnesota/Wisconsin border, in a fallow corn field with a small but
steep hill with a rocky top

in Austria, in a corn field on highway S36 called "Murtalschnellstrasse"
between the small towns "Sankt Stefan" and "Kraubath"

in typical Illinois prairie in a field lined with a series of nice old
concrete posts, usage unknown

in Victoria, on the Great Ocean Road directly over a tunnel provided to
transport herds of cows under the road for milking purposes

in some private, semi-industrial land in Nebraska, near a man-made pond with
lots of Canada geese

on the ice of Minnesota's Lake Mille Lacs, but close enough to the shore to be
scored from MN-18 ("There are hundreds of ice fishing houses on the lake
now.")

in Nebraska, surrounded by sand pits which have been turned into lakes for
recreation and backdrops for McMansions

on a golf course in rural central Illinois ("It looked a bit ragged.")

behind the homeowners association clubhouse on the grounds of Mayfield
residential subdivision of Milpitas, California

and in a meadow 900 meters from Estonia's Kau Manor ("At once a nature
preserve, boutique hotel and restaurant, art center and academy, Kau Manor is
devoted to nurturing beauty and nourishing artists, aesthetes and adventurers
of all kinds.")

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

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
