Announcement: Geodashing Game 5

Game 5 of Geodashing begins November 1. It will run until November 30, 2001.
Dashpoints have been posted to

Game 5 has more than twice as many dashpoints as Game 4, over 30,000 in all.
Now, for the first time, there are dashpoints in Alaska, Hawaii, the
Caribbean islands, Iceland, Indonesia, the Philippines and many other
islands that were overlooked in previous games. In fact, only the polar
latitudes are excluded from Game 5.

Game 4 saw the game's first visits to Europe (the UK), Australia, New
Zealand, and the US states of Nebraska and Iowa. Dashpoint settings included
a prune plum orchard, walnut trees, the artichoke capital of the world, the
stomping grounds of Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, joshua trees above Death
Valley, the Derbyshire countryside and an English soccer ground, miles of
South African dunes, a paddock outside of Melbourne, a cattle ranch in Utah,
and one dashpoint inside Fort Knox that players had the good judgment to
bypass. Players reported seeing a coyote, lizards, deer, sheep, cows,
geese, horses, rabbits, cats, and white-breasted crows. We ate grits and
Tang and inhaled the pungent aroma of mountains of potting soil. Game 4 saw
the oldest Geodasher yet, an 86 year-old woman. It's a game you never


About Geodashing: Geodashing is a variant of a GPS stash hunt game in which
the waypoints, or dashpoints, are virtual (no physical caches) and randomly
placed all over the world. 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
