Geodashing: May17   Print  E-mail 
Contributed by Scout  
Results: Geodashing Game 191 (GDDN)

"Today is a beautiful, sunny day here in California. And what is more
Californian than a four lane (each way) freeway? That's where the llamas
placed this dashpoint: 73 meters west of southbound Hwy 280 near Woodside,
California. The nearby mansions of Woodside are, for the most part, hidden
behind low grassy hills and scattered oak trees as one drives by at 55 MPH."

That's Geodashing in California with Buxley

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

Game 191 (GDDN) of Geodashing was won by team Llama League. Honorable mention
goes to GeoTerriers.

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

The game saw 72 dashpoint hunts in just three countries (US, Australia, and
Czech Republic).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

in the Czech Republic in a locality nicknamed Czech Canada, in a forest known
for blueberries and interesting stones

just west of a four lane (each way) freeway near Woodside, California ("The
nearby mansions are hidden behind low grassy hills and scattered oak trees")

in the front yard of a small one story gray clapboard house in St. Gabriel,
Louisiana, down the street from a grocery store with an old sign that said
"established in the 1800s"

in southeast Melbourne, in the back yard of a weatherboard house with an
overgrown garden and a tumbling down wooden fence

outside St Louis, near a nice house with three vehicles parked in front of a
large garage with four flags: Don't Tread on Me, Confederate Flag, US Flag and
a POW/MIA flag

in Windhaven Park in Plano, Texas, just off a paved paths, in a large bush
near the fence surrounding the pool and water slide

in a beige-coloured, well-maintained California bungalow with a wire fence in
a northern suburb of Melbourne (just a few blocks from where I once lived a
long, long, time ago)

amidst purple clover, black eyed susans and some indian paintbrush growing
along a highway outside Waco, Texas

in Virginia, on the road to Shenandoah Caverns, in a large field with a barn
painted red, with the black silhouettes of two horses painted on the white
doors

in a rough pasture that contains numerous wind turbines in flat Kansas
farmland (unfortunately, none of the game's waypoints happen to lie in this
pasture)

in extreme western Tennessee, down the remnants of an old road on top of a
levee and totally covered in weeds almost waist high

in the small town of Lindsay, Nebraska, more prosperous than typical since it
has a manufacturing plant (for farm equipment), not just the usual
agricultural economy

in a band of cedars between the very sandy road and the rough pasture beyond
in Nebraska's remote Sand Hills area

as usual in a recently planted cornfield in Nebraska, but near the site of one
of three WWII POW Camps in the state

in rural Kentucky, in an uncultivated field across the road from a field with
very small corn plants just peeking up out of the ground

in Minnesota, in a field with corn plants just protruding from the black soil,
north of a deep drainage ditch called County Ditch 75

near the village of Lily Lake west of Chicago, with farmland on either side
with tilled fields whose crops won't arrive for a month or so

north of Las Vegas, Nevada, about a kilometer from road out among scrubby
bushes and uneven terrain ("the bushes are much greener this month")

at the end of the paved walkway along the narrow, gravelly beach of
Pennsylvania's Gifford Pinchot State Park ("The scene here was very pretty,
with reeds in the foreground, fishermen at the end of the peninsula, and the
sailboats along the beach.")

in a field outside a cemetery in Montpelier, Louisiana

and at the very back of New Calvary Cemetery, near the infamous Flint,
Michigan ("When I was there on Sunday there were lots of people working on
gravesites for Memorial Day.")

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

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
