Results: Geodashing Game 208 (GDEE)

"The terrain is rolling hills covered in grasses and bushes. The area is
fenced, so I approached it thinking I would be unsuccessful. I was surprised
to find a gate in the fence, steeply downhill off the road. The gate leads
through a stretch of private property to BLM land. That is a fairly common
situation out west, where you can follow the road, but not leave it on the
private property. I followed a rough jeep trail into the hilly ground, went a
few hundred meters to get within 200 meters of ground zero, and walked over a
little rise and back down to get half way there."

"Mobile report at dashpoint which is in the usual soybean field, but a bit
more interesting. On the main road were lots of Amish horse drawn carriages
AND a wagon moving much slower than usual. When we passed it we saw it was an
8 horse drawn harvesting rig with two rows of Clydesdales pulling it. Those
horses were taller than our car! Cool. We stopped in a driveway to get a
picture but that was where they were going so we had to move. And we just now
got passed by a more modern design buggy that looks like the sports car of

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

in Karlsruhe, Germany, on the site of the former Paul Revere Village, a
housing complex for the US Army, now converted to civilian housing

in flats in the Eastend of Glasgow, about 400 meters from Tollcross
International Swimming Centre

unreachable down Shingle Creek Road in British Columbia ("Encountered sign
'Native Land, Absolutely No Trespassing, Violators will be prosecuted'")

in suburban Odenton, Maryland, along the high tension line right-of-way behind
a row of houses

outside Corpus Christi, near nothing of any interest except a Honky Tonk that
is no longer honking or tonking

off an active logging road and up a steep cliff in the hills above Lumby,
British Columbia

behind a house on Route 28 just east of the town of Andes, in rural central
New York State

on a wooded hill east of Des Moines, Iowa, in heavy woods that are just
beginning to turn fall colors

off a gravel road in rural southeastern Iowa, across from a graveyard, in
rolling hills with soybeans and corn growing and maybe rotting in too muddy

in Iowa, near a gray split level house with a white wooden deck across from a
green alfalfa pasture, more intensely green than the typical fall look due to
all the rain

in a soybean field in Illinois, at an ordinary farm with a red barn, around
which is some wild chicory flowers and a huge critter hole

in completely flat Illinois cornfields east of Peoria, about as featureless as
is possible, not even green, since it's all been harvested

in Bellmore, Indiana, just past a field full of flea market stalls and roads
jammed with parked cars all the way from the center of town to the dashpoint

in western Ohio, in a harvested field of who knows what with some low growing
green weeds across the highway from a cornfield yet to be harvested

in North Carolina, down a dirt road and in dense woods of the Tuscany Ridge
development, which has wide stone walls lining the roads

in a harvested cornfield in Ohio, where there are morning glory vines growing
up the stalks in purple and pink

in the vast yard of grass of a large new brick home in in a bit of Ohio which
is very wooded and hilly with large lakes and state parks and horse farms with
classic white fences

in a field outside of Sheffield, England, down a lane that is obviously used
by horse and bike riders, as well as dog walkers

on a gravel road in a more remote farming area of Michigan, with soybean
fields on either side

in the back yard of a lot waiting for development of a new home near Sugar
Grove, Illinois, just north of Bliss Forest Preserve, site of a rare geologic
feature, the Kaneville Esker ("I had to look up what an esker was, which I

within California's Elkhorn Slough National Estuaries Research Reserve, in
dense clusters of oak trees leading down into a small valley

northeast of Melbourne, in a forested area up a dirt track and right under a
telecommunications tower painted green in an attempt to blend into the
bushland ("It was about 50 metres high so there was little chance of blending

in central Illinois on wide open Illinois prairie with harvested fields that
have been plowed under on both sides

in the Sachsenwald, a big forest near Hamburg, Germany, near a hunting perch
("Luckily, no huntsman was waiting there to shoot something." Stay safe out
there everyone!)

and in a bean field in North Carolina ("We went 30 miles east on I-40, nervous
to see 'tropical storm warning' on the info signs along the highway. About
this time, the rain started, and we thought it was heavy rain. Turns out we
didn't know what really heavy rain was like -- that came later in the drive!"
Did I say, stay safe out there everyone!)


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 .
