Results: Geodashing Game 117 (GDAR)

"This D-point is located on the edge of a wetland near Linnuraba. I
parked my car on Varbola-Rapla road, put on my snowshoes and went for
a hike. I had researched the area beforehand and was planning to start
my hike on the Varbola wooded meadow, take the D-point, continue to an
abandoned farmhouse to reach floodplain forests and take the Vardi
river back S to complete the circle. Hike started interestingly right
from the start as I spooked a 9 member herd of wild boar from their
hiding place. There were lots of boar tracks and sleeping places all
over the area. The weather was awesome and it was good to feel the
warmth of the sun after a long winter."

"We'd left Paestum late morning after visiting the wonderful
Greco-Roman archaeological site and headed north towards this dash
point just off the autostrada at Lancusi. We reached zero on the Via
Campi, Corticelle, a small town which is a frazione of the Comune of
Mercato San Severino. The town was in a valley surrounded by low hills
with higher mountains beyond. On one such hill we could see the ruins
of a small stone village, fortress, watchtowers and defensive wall
winding down the hillside. Nearer to the dash point were small rural
properties, olive groves and terraces for farming this fairly rugged

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

in pinyon-juniper woodland in Utah's Uintah Basin

behind a row of houses in Germany, with the corner shop, formerly a
bakery, now a kiosk for collecting packages

in Tuscany, in the middle of a vast olive grove with views in every

in California, near the peak of the Cañada de Pala trail in a county
park along the winding road that leads up to Lick Observatory

in an empty paddock in Victoria, Australia, near a lake that had been
bone dry for a few years but now is full to the brim

on the edge of a wetland near Linnuraba, Estonia

in California's Sacramento River, with picnic tables on the banks and
million-dollar boats bobbing in the marina

in Ohio, in front of a house with bushes landscaped in a way that make
them look like soft-serve ice cream cones and a cupid-style
statue/bird bath thing in front

in South Carolina, in undeveloped land that is thickly overgrown with
brush and pine, along a road with widely dispersed single-family

in New South Wales, on a street with impressive homes where not long
ago was open farm land

on a sandy road in Georgia, a forest on one side and a unplanted field
with last year's stubble on the other

off a road in Illinois, with farm fields on both sides, a bit wet but
nothing serious, a bit of corn stubble left from last year

off another road in Illinois, with farm fields on both sides, ... and
another ... and another, only this time with snow cover

in Washington state, in a field planted with winter wheat about 10 cm

in a construction site next to the car park of a business center in
Battipaglia, Italy, reached after dusk with rain pelting down

in Virginia, in the parking lot of a strip shopping center near a
vacant store with a large "Space Available" sign

on Reseda Blvd in southern California's San Fernando Valley between a
Payday Advance check-cashing place and coin laundry

on I-70 near St. Louis, Missouri, in front of a good sized building
housing "Warehouse of Dinettes"

in Minnesota, 300m from the bank of the Mississippi River in the
southbound lane of MN-252, less than 300m north of the clover-leaf
junction of I-94, I-694, and MN-252

about 0.4 miles down a very faint track off Nevada's world famous
Zzyzx Road

and in the small valley town of Corticelle, Italy, below a hill with
the remains of a fortress with walls and watchtowers


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 .
