"We had a nice sunny winter day with chilly -10C outside. Approaching
the dashpoint, I first took a wrong way, which ended with a sign
"Private property". Oh, how I just love these. As the road was narrow
and there was deep snow on both sides, there was no possibility to
turn around. So I had to reverse for about 0.5km. Oh yes, and of
course I was not careful enough and drove too close to the side of the
road and got stuck. It took me half an hour to get out from there.
Nothing serious though. So, I took the right way after that, which had
quite bad snow conditions. The semi-hard snow between the driving
tracks was continuously scraping the bottom of the car. It should have
taken me to the shore, where from the point 2.2km away should have
been walked to. Well, that's not the way I do business ;) It was quite
cold and windy out there on the open sea... and there were some tracks
on the ice, which looked like an unofficial ice road. So I drove onto
the sea and made it to 460m from the point. Basically I parked in the
middle of the sea and walked from there to make it zero. It was on the
outskirts of islet Kõinastu."

That's Geodashing in Estonia with Haraldpoiss

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

on a small islet in Estonia, at the beginning of an ice road over the
Baltic Sea, with the shore of Saaremaa island visible over the sea

in Minnesota, on the road between two small lakes with summer cabins
on wooded lots

on sandy soil amid countless lava outcrops in the scenic Oregon
Badlands Wilderness

in a grassy field in New Zealand, with a number of sheep, which rival
the kiwi as New Zealand's signature animal, grazing in an adjacent
field

in a snow-covered corn field in Minnesota

in an irrigated field near Marana, Arizona ("It's amazing what a
little water will do for the desert.")

in an area of Missouri of rolling hills and abandoned farmsteads, down
a minimum maintenance road with deep ruts, in a pasture with some drab
trees around

in a mix of scrubby pines and hardwoods in rural Maryland, in soggy
ground close to the marshy ground of a swamp

on top of a near-vertical cliff just off the Pacific Ocean coastline,
overlooking both the ocean and Arroyo Hondo, which means "deep creek",
once a working ranch, now a nature preserve

in thick scrube down the slope from the road in Australia's Wilson
Promontory National Park, the southernmost region of the Australian
mainland

along the old Hume highway to Sydney in the northern suburbs of
Melbourne, near the huge Broadmeadows Assembly Plant owned by Ford
Australia

near the maintenance buildings of Elkhorn, Nebraska's Indian Creek
golf course

in the parking lot of Oneida Shores County Park in western New York
state, deserted during the off-season

and directly across from a church named "Christ Is The Answer; Church
Of God In Christ" in Pittsburg, California, scored, appropriately, on
Good Friday

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

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
