Nah. It's a good set of clues. Takes time is all, and more planning than I'm putting into riding at the moment. Looking forward to playing when the the stars align.

When they're my clues, creativity counts. I like to see the games keep moving rather than try to see how difficult they can be.

If I was in Hastings, NZ, for instance, I think I'd probably look at Pakowhai Country Park.
Or what appear either of the large parks to your west, if I were out that way...

Excellent!
Miserable weather here today, but can't wait for the next set.

New list;

3 - A clock tower or stand alone town clock

4 - A shooting range

5 - A dragstrip

File photo prevention item is a blue cloth (rag / towel / whatever) drapped over your windshield or handlebars.

Got items 1-4 reasonably close. Have to figure out where the nearest dragstrip is. Closest one I can think of is about 100 miles south.

If you come on down to Rockingham you'll have to stop in SP for a beer on me. Although, I'm bikeless right now until I get around to rejetting the Honda carbs.

Absolutely. Trying to decide right now if I'm going to chase this one tomorrow, the VA tag or head out on what would surely be a fruitless trip to hillbillyville.

Well items 1 to 4 are easy but the nearest drag strip I can think of is about 500km away.

There are 3 dragstrips just outside the TriTOR boundaries and that's not including the 4'th one in Fayetteville...unless you live in the middle of the tag map there is bound to be a dragstrip within about 50 miles of your location.

Thems pretty good numbers to work with.

The only one I could think of before searching was Rockingham. I've, uh, narrowed it down a bit since. And I'm pretty much smack dab in the middle of TriTORville.

Edit: I thought the dragstrip was going to be the difficult part of this. Got one about 50 miles away, but can't find a static aircraft display within 100 miles or so, but I *think* I may know where one is that isn't listed on the world wide interwebs.

Better hurry up. I'm thinking of getting this one....there's a static aircraft right in the center of TriTorville and a drag strip 30 miles from me.

It's on. Nearest dragstrip to me that I can find is in Roxboro and I'm heading over near the airport (go figure) to look for a static display that I may or may not have seen in the past. Not *AT* the airport, but nearby.

Forgot to take my blue cloth when I went out this morning...

Don't tempt me...

I guess you did understand which display I was talking about. But can you figure out where it is?

(stretch...shower on tap...then maybe I'll see if I get bruced)
