Results: Geodashing Game 189 (GDDL)

"On the way home we pulled into Cobbledicks Streamside Reserve where we had
scored a dashpoint about 15 years ago. This area had been derelict then, with
many broken beer bottles and cans on fenceposts that had been used for
shooting practice. We were delighted to find that the Reserve has now been
established and protected with ranger oversight and fencing. Only bush-walking
is now permitted, and four-wheel driving, trail-biking and shooting have been
banned. The re-growth has already started and the bushland is regenerating. I
was able to reach 98 metres leaning over the fast flowing Werribee River. We
drove out over Cobbledick's Ford which is a submerged bluestone crossing built
about 150 years ago by Samuel Cobbledick, an early district farmer."

That's Geodashing (then and now) in Australia with Dashing Dog Mac

"This dashpoint is along the side of a road a bit over a mile and a half from
the house I grew up in, so it was an easy score while taking my kids to visit
my mother, who still lives in the same house."

That's Geodashing in New York with BOB

"Been on this exact spot many times for many years. Our farm ground. It's
going to be in corn this year."

That's Geodashing in Illinois with Wadcutter

"The point is right off a road, and just inside a fenced in livestock yard. I
have been lurking this geodashing thing for years, and I finally found the
motivation to go find a dashpoint. The fact that it's only 1.2 miles from my
house helped motivate me."

That's Geodashing in North Carolina with blackcat96

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

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

in Iowa on a lonely dead-end road with a falling down abandoned house and
various bits of ranching machinery in fields with open gates

in Victoria, Australia, on a local bike path in the George Andrews Reserve, an
extensive sporting complex

just off I-66 in Virginia, with the Fair Oaks mall to the north and the
Fairfax Corner mall to the south

along the railroad tracks in West Virginia, near a couple of mostly
decomposed/eaten deer carcasses lying next to a telephone pole

in Pennsylvania, down dead-end Kuhn Fording Road, on grass, downhill from the
road near the narrow band of trees along the stream

in Iowa, near an apparently abandoned farmhouse, although there are various
farm buildings, mostly silos, in active use nearby

northwest of Melbourne, in a quite beautiful area with hilly surroundings,
gullies, native bushland, and a natural thermal springs

west of Melbourne, in flat grazing land scattered with stands of gums, with
the zero spot marked by a stack of hay bales

in a very barren harvested soybean field in the flat Missouri River floodplain
just at the base of the Loess Hills

west of Chicago, within site of the stadium lights for the home of the Kane
County Cougars, Class A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks

in the parking lot of a once nice, probably close to 75-year-old brick
apartment complex in Buffalo, New York

in Arkansas, off a narrow road on top of a hill in the yard of a house close
to a large lake and a recreational area with lots of cedar trees around

in wooded area just off the highway in Arkansas's Gunner Pool Recreation Area
in Ozark-St Francis National Forest

on a narrow paved road in hilly mixed farming and ranching in Missouri ("There
were llamas and alpacas along with two very large Great Pyrenees dogs who
tried their best to climb in the car.")

on a lane between wineries in the flat agricultural lands near Rimini, Italy,
heading towards the mountains

near the Guadalupe Reservoir dam, amid green, tree-covered hills that feel
quite remote despite being only 15 kilometers south of downtown San Jose,
California

and on the road leading into a cattle feeding operation in Missouri ("Saw
massive amounts of henbit blooming in fields so that it appeared to be
carpeted in rosy lavender carpet. Frogs in drainage ditches were singing so
loud we could hear them with closed car windows as we zoomed by.")

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

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
