Results: Geodashing Game 130 (GDBE)

"Instead of following the Great Ocean Rd to our destination just past
Cape Otway, we headed west to Colac then south to Carlisle River for
this dash point. We located Egans Track which wound its way through
the dense forest towards the zero point. As we approached the dash
point the weather took a turn for the worse and by the time we reached
39 metres it was very dark and pouring with rain. The track here was
very muddy and churned up by the tyres of large logging trucks. We
braved the elements and took some photos. We then re-traced our route
back to the bitumen road and continued on our way."

That's Geodashing in Victoria, Australia with Madam Dash

"Got within 560 meters! Looked like nothing but farmers field to me
and I wasn't going any further due to a big dog running around!"

That's Geodashing in Alberta with Geodasher42

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

Game 130 (GDBE) of Geodashing was won by team "GeoTerriers," breaking
a string of three wins by "Llama League," who finished second.
Honorable mention goes to team "En Dash!"

Individual honors go to new player SoccerFanatics. Honorable mentions
go to four players in second place, chaosmanor, Dashing Dog Mac, Madam
Dash, and RogBarn.

The game saw 36 dashpoint hunts in five countries (Estonia, US,
Australia, Canada and the Czech Republic).

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

along a very muddy track in dense forest near Victoria, Australia's
Cape Otway along the Great Ocean Road

in Estonia, in nice forest, with remnants of winter's snow here and
there, some fallen trees, an animal trail, stones covered with thick
green moss and near a low old stone-fence

near Tucson, Arizona, by a brick house guarded by a fake owl, in a
neighborhood with street names Castor, Capella and Betelgeux

in "Old Chicago," former site of the first fully enclosed domed
shopping center and indoor amusement park, now home to a company
specializing in custom packing and folding cartons

in Victoria, Australia, in a vast paddock containing only the dry
stalks of some crop that had been harvested a while back

in a paddock behind Australia's Yarra Valley Dairy where wine, cheese
and coffee were on offer ("The Pinot Noir and the Goat Cheese won out
on the day.")

in southern California, on the east "bank" of Wilbur Creek, which is a
concrete-lined drainage channel that feeds the Los Angeles River

deep in the Czech forest of the area called "Czech Canada", near a
house for hunters

in the woods behind the Montgomery Chapel Cemetery in Maryland

under a pile of old roofing shingles in undeveloped land between the
President George Bush Tollway and a nature preserve along Duck Creek
in Garland, Texas

in a residential neighborhood in Westminster, Colorado, just a few
blocks from WaterWorld, one of the great water parks in the US

in Phoenix, outside a playground with Little Tikes equipment owned by
the Upward Foundation, which provides for special needs children

in a plowed field in Nebraska ("We couldn't tell if anything had been
planted.") within site of an old WWII munitions plant

in a freshly turned field in Oxnard, California ("It's too late for
strawberries, so I suspect that the next crop in here will be
cilantro, unless they decide to go for peppers.")

in one of several close VERY LARGE sod farms in Virginia

in a housing development in Maryland ("Growing up, we visited the
cliffs here looking for fossil shark and whale teeth. Now, it's all
suburbia.")

at the intersection of Par Place and Bunker Drive northeast of
Sacramento ("Not too surprisingly, there's a golf course two blocks to
the north")

and in Missouri's Hawn State Park, a short walk into the pine woods
("This part of the park is managed to encourage the growth of the
shortleaf pine tree, the only pine native to Missouri.")

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

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
http://GPSgames.org .
