Results: Geodashing Game 187 (GDDJ)

"About 2 am New Year's morning I had an attempt on this geodash, as the
mapping showed a footpath to the waters edge. I sprayed myself liberally with
insect repellent, but came to some (bunting) barricaded section at the bottom
of a long concrete stepped pathway, with what looked like impenetrable
lantana, but I was still 130 metres from GZ. ALL was quiet in the
neighbourhood, but my headlight was getting a bit dim, so I 'turned in' for
the night. After breakfast I thought I would have another look, and see what
was really there. Not nearly so much lantana, but more weeds and burrs. I was
able to climb around those until I got to the waters edge, and still 120 m
away. Balanced my way along a broken retaining wall on the edge of Booker Bay,
towards Daleys Point. Some nice boats were out on the water. Reached 98
metres, and being happy at that I turned back. Is that the first Geodash for
2017, being gained 0825, Sunday, 1 January, 2017! Happy New Year!"

"Decided to try and get a DP as we have not been out for a while. It was a
nice Winter day in E. Utah with the sun shining and the temps in the lower
30's. We drove through the oil fields and then dropped off the plateau and
followed the road nearest the DP. Unfortunately the road went from gravel to
dirt and because of the sun and temps, to mud. We got stuck temporarily even
with our 4X4 truck, but were able to get out. Where we were on the road got
us to 0.6 miles or so from the DP, but there was no way we could get any
closer. My mother-in-law was along for the ride (85 yrs young). Not sure that
she will want to go with us on future adventures :)"

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

A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

past the South Mountain Creamery in Maryland, in mature deciduous woods, first
uphill for a bit, then over the edge of the hill and out of sight downhill

down a stepped pathway, past lantana, weeds and burrs, along a broken
retaining wall and in the water of Booker Bay in New South Wales

west of Chicago, smack on the middle of a country road right next to an Osage
Orange tree (Hedge Apple) and across from some fairly old farmhouses

through a woods and in an open field behind the Pisgah recycling center in
Maryland

in Washington, DC, behind a two-story brick house with an addition on the
right side that has tan siding

down a snow packed gravel road in a stand of tamarack trees east of Clear
Lake, Minnesota

in a fenced off grassy paddock (Gilbertson's Grassland Nature Conservation
Reserve) among large warehouses in the industrial suburb of Truganina,
Victoria, Australia

in Pennsylvania's George Washington National Forest, past the remains of a
deer (the ribs were stripped, but the head, neck, and tail had not been
eaten), across a stream and up the side of a ridge

off the turn at one of the switchbacks of Licking Creek Road, a steep, rough
dirt road in Pennsylvania, over the top of a mountain and down the other side,
in mature woods

in a beautiful little residential neighborhood along California's Napa River,
probably on a private dock behind a house on the river

and in a snowed-in pasture behind a white metal barn near the tiny town of
Hancock, Iowa

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

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
