Geodashing: Jul18   Print  E-mail 
Contributed by Scout  
Results: Geodashing Game 205 (GDEB)

"Parked in a nearby supermarket and made my way to the dashpoint on the
roadway on a bridge over a railway. A busy road, the closest I stood was on
the pavement about 4 m from the dashpoint. I might have been closer as I
drove over the dashpoint on my way home. Considered getting it again on the
lower level by taking a train ride but that was going to take a good bit
longer."

That's Geodashing in Scotland with Clarinet2
==================================

Game 205 (GDEB) of Geodashing was won by Llama League (93 points). Honorable
mentions go to GeoTerriers (45 points).

Individual honors go to Douq Millar and deodasher (35 points each).

The game saw 70 dashpoint hunts in five countries (US, Australia, Germany, UK
and Canada).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

on a dirt and fairly washboard-free road off I-80 in Wamsutter, Wyoming, where
we saw dozens of pronghorn antelope and a herd of wild horses!

in northern Germany, on a military site from WW2, where there was a building
surrounded by a water trench ("Today you can only see thick bushes and trees
and get a glimpse of the water trench.")

on a rural gravel road in the middle of dense corn and soybean country of
Illinois across the Mississippi River from Iowa ("Often the corn was planted
closer to the road producing a green tunnel effect.")

along a stretch of road in Bellevue, Washington, near lots of construction
associated with the East Link Light Rail project

in southeastern Nebraska, in a farm yard with a large truck, a pile of large
new truck tires, and a screened-in trampoline ("It's cornfield north and
soybeans east.")

in the outskirts of Gardner, Illinois, down a private drive to what will
eventually be a neighborhood, but for now leads only to a single
newly-constructed house

out of reach up a hillside on a fenced and gated off private ranch near Santa
Barbara, California

in a marshy, tidal swamp area near Port Macquarie, New South Wales ("the tide
had gone out, but the ground was still very boggy")

on Australia's Mornington Peninsula, at the edge of a Field and Game Park
containing a Gun Club, an Archery Course, and a Motor Cross track with a race
in progress

in a cornfield in Illinois that's also home to a number of wind turbines
("That's why there's so many wind storms in the Midwest: everyone's leaving
these fans on.")

in sagebrush and grasses in central Utah, at 2,475 meters elevation, ("Other
than the highway the only visible improvement is a power line.")

in a very new subdivisions in a booming part of Colorado Springs, Colorado, at
a nice house with a rock faced front with a statue of an elk in the front

near Columbia, Maryland, behind a red brick ranch style home with a carport on
the right side and either be a dinosaur or giraffe (or a llama!) made of PVC
or metal piping in the yard on the left

in a residential neighborhood of a suburb of Sacramento, California, just west
of Mather Airport

in Australia, on the verge of the Belgrave-Gembrook Road in the Dandenong
Ranges, surrounded by steep hillsides with many sheep and cows contentedly
grazing

on a busy road over a railroad in east of Glasgow, Scotland

just beyond a white picket fence and near front porch in a new Ohio suburb
with a fake lake and houses styled to look like Georgeton or Charleston

near a white cast metal letterbox of a single-storey brick 'bungalow' outside
Sydney, Australia

in Illinois, in a small triangle of a field that looks like it was tilled and
cultivated once upon a time but is now just full of weeds

about a kilometer from the road in the foothills just north of Moroni, Utah
("It has been very hot and dry this year in Utah. My shoes were very, very
dusty after tramping through the dead grass and weeds.")

in a rain-soaked cornfield in southwestern Minnesota

in a soybean field next to another soybean field in Illinois

in a soybean field in Indiana, in country FAR more featureless than Iowa,
completely flat and other than some distant wind turbines devoid of any
scenery

in very dense woods past an old rundown house with some rundown out buildings
in Tulsa, Oklahoma

in rural Virginia, down a weedy track in brambles and poison ivy at the edge
of the woods

on a crop field, outside of Nenndorf, Germany, between two paved roads whose
access is restricted to farmers, and near a small lawn with sheep

across the street from Hamilton Fire Station #12 in Ontario

in an old, unnamed cemetery just outside Manchester, Indiana ("The oldest
grave we found was 1861.")

northwest of Fresno, California, in an empty field, north and southwest of
which fields of grape vines stretch far into the distance ("If there's a
bright center to California, this is the dashpoint it's farthest from." --
Luke Skywalker)

and on Australia's Mornington Peninsula, 94 metres into the Quealy Winemakers
vineyard ("so we decided to undertake some tasting before scoring")

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

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
