Results: Geodashing Game 197 (GDDT)

"We took US 211 uphill into Shenandoah National Park at Thornton Gap. We drove
up Skyline Drive, through the tunnel and past the tunnel parking overlook. We
parked at Buck Hollow Overlook and climbed steeply on a side trail that took
us up to the Appalachian Trail, then walked north along the trail to Mary's
Rock. The Dashpoint is about 50 meters off the trail, uphill toward the rocks
that overlook Shenandoah Valley. I got within 5 meters of it as I went up to
the rocks, but it was not worth the effort to get through the dense bushes and
rough rocks to get to zero. The view from the top was great."

That's Geodashing in Virginia with SoccerFanatics

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

Game 197 (GDDT) of Geodashing was won by GeoTerriers (63 points). Honorable
mention goes to Llama League (30 points).

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

The game saw 40 dashpoint hunts in five countries (US, Australia, Germany,
Poland, and Czech Republic).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

in the forest near an abandoned chateau in the Czech village of Cesky Rudolec

in the Melbourne outer suburb of Narre Warren, near a brick house with 18 tall
cypress pines planted along the front and side fencelines

in the woods in Germany, near a typical Black Forest farmhouse

outside Boston, just past a small modern house on a typical New England road,
full of curves and tall trees, mostly maples and past peak color but still a
beautiful drive in the countryside

between soccer fields at the Cold Spring Elementary School in Rockville,
Maryland

at the edge of the fenced tennis court in a park in Richmond, Virginia

near the entrance to the historic Donnybrook Cemetery in Kalkallo, Australia
("The old graves were much more interesting than the surrounding grassy
paddocks.")

in a weedy, overgrown front yard in Sylmar, California, site of a 1971
earthquake ("The paint is fading and the wood fascia is peeling. Why keep the
place up if another major earthquake is going to destroy it all, anyway?")

down a hill through trees toward the stream on a fenced lot behind Edgecomb's
Imported Car Sales and Services in Charlottesville, Virginia

in Virginia, about 50 meters off the Appalachian Trail at Marys Rock in
Shenandoah National Park ("The view from the top was great.")

outside Huntsville, Alabama, uphill in the woods near a very long two-story
wood house with stairs going up to the front porch on the second floor ("They
already have their Christmas tree up, with all white lights.")

in the traffic lanes of Virginia Avenue near the Hong Kong Restaurant in
Hagerstown, Maryland

in Pennsylvania, past nothing but farms and in a farm field across the road
from Norm's Farm Store ("We stopped there to by bird feed - way cheaper here
than in the DC area.")

on the far back side of Wildwood Cemetery, on a high bluff overlooking
Williamsport, Pennsylvania, with the graves a steep walk up or down hill from
the roads from where visitors can park

outside St. Louis in Illinois, between two harvested corn fields on either
side of the road

on an access road to a mobile home Park in Nebraska, exposed to some crusty
looking folks who probably have guns

in the parking lot of Stewart's Small Engine Repair near the Stateville
Correctional Facility in Lockport, Illinois ("In the Blues Brothers movie,
they discuss that "Joliet Jake" just got out of Stateville")

just off Metcalf Road, a narrow paved road outside San Jose, California, near
a quiet ranch with a few cows wandering over the grassy hills

and in Illinois, down a well packed gravel section road that dead-ends at a
cemetery (no pun intended)

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

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
