Geodashing: Dec06   Print  E-mail 
Written by Scout  

"We drove to Phillip Island in search of this dashpoint. We crossed
the bridge at San Remo.  At the end of the road was the Purple Hen
Vineyard, and all along the road were spectacular views of Westernport
Bay. The blue expanse of the bay was in direct contrast to the dry
yellow fields of the surrounding countryside.  After this adventure we
had lunch and to our delight the local wine on the menu was from the
Purple Hen Vineyard."

That's Geodashing in Australia with Dashing Dog Mac

"Sunday, rainy, so gray. Watching all this behind the window, makes it
all more sad. So we made a little tour. 25 km by mainroad Tartu to
Elva, some few kilometers gravel roads, then we got within needed
distance by fields road, but didn't go further, because zero point was
lying in the middle of the winter cornfield and we didn't want to walk
on it. Nearby there are all farmlands and nice country houses. It is
so good to see, that people are more valuing country life again and
renewing their living."

That's Geodashing in Estonia with Dix

"Before the motorway was built, this road, the A6, was the main road
to the North and Scotland. A steep notorious road.  Today the country
was fog bound. Planes stuck on runways, cars crawling around, unable
to see very far. On Shap we were just above the cloud, it was wisping
about.  Found a stone stile over the stone wall. DP was in bend of
river, Crookadale Beck, and looked really boggy. We got close as we
dared in marsh, then headed back before mist rolled in."

That's Geodashing in the UK with flipflopnick

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

Game 66 of Geodashing was won by "Home for the Itinerant". Honorable
mentions go to "GeoTerriers" and "En Dash!".

McMeanderer took individual honors, thanks to mad dashes in several
regions of the US. Honorable mentions go to Tom Arneson and, in a
three-way tie for third place, chaosmanor, Dashing Dog Mac and Madam
Dash.

The game saw 98 dashpoint hunts in 9 countries (Estonia, the US,
Germany, Australia, Canada, Mexico, the UK, Finland, and Spain).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

in Australia's Edithvale-Seaford Wetlands Environment, beyond tall
reeds at the edge of the wetlands
 
alongside Southern Pacific Railroad tracks near near Calimesa,
California

on the front porch of a grey-brick corner-lot home in Ontario, Canada

in the huge driveway, near the center fountain, of a three story gray
mansion in San Francisco

in front of a two story brick colonial house in York, Pennsylvania

just south of the football field of newly built high school in
Trotwood, Ohio

on the tennis court of Blaine High School in Andover, Minnesota

just beyond a baseball centerfield fence in North Carolina, where a
man was lobbing practice golf shots into the golf area

on an industrial property north of Denver, with a view of the Rockies
front range peeking over the roof of storage units

across a plowed corn field in Minnesota, into a stiff cold wind

under a bunch of pine needles next to a lone partially burned Juniper
tree in Oregon

seventy meters from a red, rutted track that climbed toward the
mountains outside Colorado's Garden of the Gods Park

on a ridge in Mexico, topped by a statue of San Miguel, the Archangel,
overlooking the ocean with fantastic views

in a field along California's Highway 1, near San Simeon, where the
highway is narrow and hugs the cliffs

along a hard-packed, potholed dirt road in Nebraska, near a trailer
and vehicles in various stages of decay, and a sign that read "Lincoln
County Wild Game Processing"

near an old ammunition bunker in Massachusetts' Wompatuck State Park
 
in a paddock in drought-stricken Victoria, with very dry, sparse,
yellow grass

through trees and a dry creek bed in Missouri to the edge of a fallow
field where five deer watched suspiciously

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

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
