Geodashing: Apr17   Print  E-mail 
Contributed by Scout  
Results: Geodashing Game 190 (GDDM)

"The dashpoint was just east of the highway in a wooded and swampy area that
ran along the highway for quite a way. From here, we continued and stopped at
the southern-most part of Illinois and visited the confluence of two mighty
rivers, the Ohio and the Mississippi. From my vantage point, I was standing in
Illinois, looking across the Ohio River to Kentucky on my left and across the
Mississippi River to Missouri on my right. The water was calm today and
although the Mississippi seemed to have a pretty fast current, I didn't see
much turbulence where the waters met out in the middle of the channel."

That's Geodashing in Illinois with newly retired RogBarn
==================================

Game 190 (GDDM) of Geodashing was won by team GeoTerriers. Honorable mention
goes to Llama League.

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

The game saw 47 dashpoint hunts in five countries (US, Italy, Thailand,
Australia, and Estonia).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

across the street from the magnificent Sri Meenakshi Devasthanam Temple in
Pearland, Texas ("awe inspiring")

just off the road in southern Maryland with dense woods and scattered
driveways on either side

in a field of young sugar cane south of a dirt field road in rural Thailand

on a runway at US Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego ("If you have
the security clearance to go there, be prepared to dodge some fighter jets.")

on the Via della Costa near a sporting field in the small town of Uzzana in
the province of Pistoia, Tuscany

in featureless Iowa farm country ("Hilly enough the fields are heavily
contoured so might be more interesting from the air.")

just outside a small church cemetery in rural Neelyton, Pennsylvania

within range of the flyover bridge over Highway 1 for the bypass of Saraburi,
Thailand

behind a two-story house in Maryland with a large 2nd floor balcony, a utility
shed, a large RV, a small auto trailer, and a shelter where they apparently
split firewood

southeast of Melbourne, where a footpath (Redgum Avenue) meets Hall Rd, a
residential street with mature gum trees planted in the centre strip

in southern Illinois, in a wooded and swampy area not far from the confluence
of two mighty rivers, the Ohio and the Mississippi

off of a named street but really a dead-end driveway outside Omaha, Nebraska,
with an astonishing panorama of the Missouri River and the farm down below
with horses

in rural Illinois, next to an old railroad in a field covered with butterweed
("It covered a lot of fields in this trip, sometimes creating beautiful
blankets of bright yellow.")

out of reach (without paying for a round of golf) on the course of Illinois's
Schaumburg Golf Club

off a rough and weedy tractor road along the banks of the stream leading to a
cultivated field in the Loess Hills, the closest to "wilderness" you can find
in Iowa

exactly on the road from Tallinn to Paldiski, Estonia, which had quite heavy
traffic

behind an abandoned Orchard Supply Hardware store in Vacaville, California
("The nursery, which was kept outdoors under a flimsy roof of netting, now
looks like something out of a post-apocalyptic movie.")

in a small neighborhood park on the edge of suburbia, a few kilometers from
the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California

in Virginia, unreachable inside a gated community called Walden

and in a forest in Estonia just 2.5km from the sea ("so I took a walk and went
to the beach. It was cold and windy, but still nice and relaxing.")

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

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
