Results: Geodashing Game 140 (GDBO)

"After so many months of 'impossible' dashpoints, I had been
despairing so much that I thought I would have to invest in a powered
para-glider so that I get within 100m by overflying those that are in
Wilderness or private property areas! While one of the GPSrs had dodgy
routing to the area - no roads where they were shown on the map, and
roads where none were shown, one took me close enough that I could get
down to 67m while sitting in the car while it was pouring down. Didn't
get the car bogged either - bonus. That's the first month, EVER, that
I have got THREE dashpoints. Now, what will March hold!?!"

That's Geodashing in New South Wales with Graham Cookie

"We had a plan, but for some reason we discarded that plan, thinking
that we could get closer by driving through tracks in a pine forest.
Not a good idea, and a lesson learned. Stick to the native bush! The
pine forest was thigh deep in blackberry bushes (which Madam Dash
sampled), Eventually we went back to plan A, and walked along the
barbed wire fence to 72 metres. We did see a kangaroo in the distance
bounding along the fence, diving through the first boundary of the
paddock, then leaping over the second into his beloved Australian
bush."

That's Geodashing in Victoria, Australia with Dashing Dog Mac

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

in suburban Melbourne, under the shade of a large date palm in the
concrete driveway of a white weatherboard house protected by a cyclone
wire fence

up Wildcat Parkway south of Denver ("Some nice statues of Wildcats
nearby and a good view of the mountains.")

in Payson, Utah, in the back garden of a two-story, older house with a
covered porch and an attached carport

in a nice, two-story bungalow in Glendale, California, in a
residential neighborhood very old for SoCal, with some houses over 100
years old

in a paddock south of Bendigo, Australia, with no animals but plenty
of birdlife -- mainly galahs and currawongs

in a plowed field in the Texas panhandle, with nothing more than
ranches and an occasional small town along the farm-to-market roads

144 meters into a plowed field in Illinois farm country east of the
Mississippi River near St. Louis

in an unfenced, harvested soybean field in Nebraska, with snow too
deep to walk and trees in the distance covered with hoar frost

in a low spot between two hills in a "wild and rugged" part of
Wisconsin

down a dirt road into the woods in rural Virginia ("no gate and no Do
Not Enter sign")

on one of the holes of the Freshmeadow golf course 20 miles west of
Chicago

in an industrial park in Phoenix surrounded by large buildings serving
as distribution centers for various businesses

and in the parking lot of an Olive Garden restaurant in Laurel,
Maryland, a popular spot for Geodashing players this month ;-)

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

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
