Results: Geodashing Game 196 (GDDS)

"My GPS directed me up Dove Road which was OK at the beginning. Then the road
turned gravel and it was a rough, large sized gravel that made me slow down
dramatically. Then we went past a sign that said "Dry Weather Passage Only".
Then we went across a stream ford where the road dips down into a small stream
that allows the water to pass over the top of it while cars drive thru. Often
they are dry. This one had some water going through but not enough to concern
us. On the other side, the road turned sandy and there were a few wet places
where I had to keep the speed up as the car slid thru. Then the road turned
sharply right and we were faced with a completely grass covered road headed
out between fields. We decided it was not reasonable to continue on. I went
back to the main road and took the next road headed in the same direction.
Fortunately, this one, although rough, was paved all the way thru and I
finally reached the dashpoint. The DP was between two small corn fields. The
corn was brown and past time to be harvested."

That's Geodashing in Illinois with RogBarn

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

Game 196 (GDDS) of Geodashing was won by GeoTerriers (61 points) in a close
win over Llama League (55 points).

Individual honors go to SoccerFanatics. Honorable mentions go to deodasher and
Douq Millar.

The game saw 53 dashpoint hunts in six countries (US, Australia, Germany,
Sweden, Poland, and New Zealand). We also saw a new US eastern extreme in
Maine scored by RogBarn (GDDS-FEAK).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

in Canberra, near the Mount Stromlo Observatory, containing the burnt remains
of the Great Melbourne Telescope which was destroyed in a bushfire in 2003

near Los Alamos, California, up a slope on the east side of the road, with a
canyon carved by a seasonal creek opposite

across the street from the green and well-groomed Oaktree Park in Tucson,
Arizona

in Victoria, Australia, in an empty paddock containing a dam and a country
windmill turning slowly

in Fayetteville, North Carolina, between the Williford Seafood Company and the
Cape Fear River, near the Rednecks Yacht Club

in southern Victoria, Australia, near an abandoned dairy farm in the beautiful
green rolling hills of Gippsland, where the grass is plentiful and the dams
are all full of water

easily accessible in an industrial area of Konigsbach-stein, Germany

on a dead-end road in "really middle of nowhere Kansas," with numerous cotton
fields and giant bales of harvested cotton just off the "very boring" Kansas
Turnpike

on a walking trail along Soldier Creek in Poore Park, Oklahoma City ("Saw a
turtle sunning itself of an old crag in the creek")

in Podosowa, Poland, near fruit trees and vineyards and greenhouses

in Postoliska, Poland, on property belonging to a large red-brick Catholic
church with modern stained glass windows

on the lakeshore in Stortorp, Sweden, lined with one- and two-story homes on
good-size lots, all with fences or low, solid walls

on the shore of Dodge Pond in rural Massachusetts, unfortunately out of reach
behind a nice large old New England house painted bright yellow and an equally
large barn, also yellow

in the water, rolling in long waves from the storm off shore before breaking
against the rocky shore near The Breakers, a famous mansion of the Vanderbuilt
family located in Newport, Rhode Island

in Virginia, on the grounds of Nansemond Suffolk Academy, past the baseball
diamond, down a dirt path past the football practice field, near a single tree

in Virginia, on the grounds of Fairfield Presbyterian Church, inside a fenced
playground area past a school building

in a farm paddock in rolling farm and forestry country near Lake Mahinerangi,
inland from Dunedin, New Zealand

in New South Wales, at the end of a dirt road, near a single-storey wood clad,
white painted house tucked away behind some fruit trees

in Victoria, Australia, deep in a thin, stringy eucalypt forest with scrubby
dry undergrowth, surrounded by undulating hills and ravines dotted with old
gold mines ("Close enough without disappearing down an old shaft.")

on the Old Santa Cruz Highway, a two lane paved road that twists through the
Santa Cruz mountains in California and is lined with old growth redwood trees
that both look and smell fantastic

in Maine, behind a garage with a big sign that said "Feeny Boat Shop", and a
lobster boat in a dry dock between the garage and the house.

and outside Abilene, Kansas, in Greenlawn Cemetery where are buried multiple
generations of the direct ancestors of the player to reach this point ("So we
sit here doing reports with setting sun and ghosts of my family, definitely a
unique Geodashing experience.")

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

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
