Results: Geodashing Game 198 (GDDU)

"I was looking at the new dashpoints earlier this week, and my wife mentioned
that she was going shopping after work and if there was anything I wanted her
to pick up. I said, "Not from the grocery store, but on your way to work on
Friday, you can pick a dashpoint up for me." She drives past this one on her
way to work, as do about 129 thousand other people (according to traffic
counts). The Marines who live in the barracks on the southeast corner of 8th&I
streets SE woke up in scoring range on Friday morning, as did a painting of
Admiral John Dahlgren which is on the retaining wall for the overpass pretty
much at the zero point. But I'm the first to report it, so I get full points
despite all those people who got there before me."

That's Geodashing in Washington, DC, with BOB

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

Game 198 (GDDU) of Geodashing was won by GeoTerriers (61 points).

Individual honors go to SoccerFanatics. Honorable mention goes to new player
Rhomicron.

Australia).

In his lifetime, Jack Frickey scored a total of 3,902 points, visiting or
attempting to visit 1,413 of these random dots on the map. At the time of his
last report in August, 2012, his lead over his closest competitor was 1,774
points. Jack Frickey passed away on September 21, 2012. The Jack Frickey "Hall
of Fame" recognizes the Geodashing player with the highest score each year.

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

nestled between of two overpasses of I-695 in southeast Washington, DC, next
to the cut that will become the new Virginia Avenue Tunnel

up an unclimbable hill north of Summit Road in Los Gatos, California

along a fenced off trail going up a snowy slope in Vernon, British Columbia

in Geelong, Victoria, Australia, at a crossing of the Bellarine Rail Trail, a
disused railway line converted into a track for walkers, bicycles and
horse-riders.

just about 100 meters inside a gated community south of Phoenix, Arizona

in Maryland, in mature woods just past a 2.5 story house with a stone facade,
a full first floor, a second floor popping up through a sloping roof, and
small third floor

in Pennsylvania, just off Golf Lane that runs through Manada Golf Club

in a side yard on good ol' Dibble Drive, near a yucca plant, in one of the
many tendrils of suburbia reaching out into rural Georgia

on Kidder Drive outside Norfolk, Virginia, with a small lake with fountain on
one side and a row of houses on the other with the attached garage of each
house joined to the attached garage of the next house

near Los Alamos, California, in a dry meadow dotted with large, gnarly
interior live oaks

inside an empty large industrial building just of I-55 in Bolingbrook,
Illinois

in rural northern Madison County, Illinois, in a field that has been harvested
and plowed under

and in a back yard of a house outside of Simpsonville, South Carolina, with a
large inflatable Snoopy Christmas decoration

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

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
