Results: Geodashing Game 192 (GDDO)

"I love all my visits to mountains and seas.
I love the smell of foreign grasses and trees.
Driving in quiet, with brief solitude
My guide is just latitude and longitude

To discover the stories of everyday places -
To learn of the history which always leaves traces.
I yearn for these outings to wander and roam
But the yearning I long for the most is my home."

--Markwell (June 2016)

That's Geodashing in Illinois with Markwell

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

Game 192 (GDDO) of Geodashing was won by team Llama League. Honorable mention
goes to GeoTerriers.

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

The game saw 97 dashpoint hunts in just three countries (US, Australia, and
Canada).

The game also saw two new extremes for USA. North: GDDO-ACRE in Alaska, and
East: GDDO-FAQU in Maine. It's rare to see even one new extreme for a country
as well-traveled as USA. To see two in one month is a delight.

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

in Illinois, on open farm land as far as the eye can see

in Pennsylvania, uphill steeply about 100 meters off a narrow dirt road lined
with mountain laurel on both sides, in full bloom and very pretty

past two Direct TV satellite dishes, at the edge of the wood line, behind some
apartments south of Baltimore

in the District of Columbia, inside the walls of the now-closed Fletcher
Johnson Middle School, a dull, institutional-looking, concrete and brick
facility

in Adel, Iowa, in front of a brown ranch style house lined with yellow lilies

in Merrillville, Indiana, in a field with tall grasses in a neighborhood of
neatly kept houses south of the grueling drive on the Interstate around
Chicago

just off the road in the heavily wooded Fisher Oak Savanna Nature Preserve in
central Indiana

in an open area of sandy soil and scrubby bushes off US 95 near Nevada's Alien
Travel Center

near a shack in very hilly and densely wooded area of eastern Ohio close to a
large dammed lake and lots of vacation homes

back in dense woods well off a twisty narrow mountain road with no place to
stop in a rural area outside of Pittsburgh

in the woods behind a two story white clapboard house with a gray mansard
roof in Connecticut

in Massachusetts just across the state line from Rhode Island, in dense woods
behind the store, Lost Treasures Antiques, which is going out of business

in a huge paddock containing about 500 sheep west of Melbourne

in the desert on Furnace Creek Road in the southern California desert near
Death Valley

in Illinois east of St. Louis, in a field of corn past a Schnuck's grocery
store and a Walmart and a Comfort Innn

in a cornfield (20 cm high) west of Sleepy Eye, Minnesota

in upstate New York, deep in a wooded area across from a red barn and corn
growing that is only 6" high ("Well the rain has resumed and we've seen some
raging streams along our dash path.")

on one of the major streets in Fremont, California, near a field full of corn
ready for harvest ("not exactly something I often see here in the Bay Area")

off in the woods close to Sebago Lake in Maine, across the road from an area
fenced by cyclone fencing with posted signs saying "absolutely no trespassing"
and video surveillance

in the Arizona desert, in low scrub on both sides of the road and cotton
fields just to the west ("It was very, very hot outside")

out of reach on the Devil's Ridge Golf Course east of Flint, Michigan

in Maine, among grassy fields with many large boulders collected in piles or
rows, some even stacked (a new extreme east visit for USA)

inside a house in Toronto whose driveway is on Tottenham Rd., but whose front
door faces Marshfield Court, the short cul-de-sac to the north

in dense knee-high ferns off of an unpaved road in dense forest in Vermont
("lots of signs to watch for Moose along the road")

in upstate New York, in a grassy field with some tiger lilies near the road
opposite a small pond almost entirely covered with lily pads

and a random place in the boreal forest of Alaska ("Probably public land, but
definitely got some strange looks from guy with a long shaggy beard")

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

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
