1 - A dam

I got the dam, the deli, the ice cream stand, and the train tracks over water, then I spent almost 3 hours riding around in what seemed like concentric circles trying to find a solar panel! WTF? I even used the Garmin to search out businesses that had the word "solar" or "energy" in their names, they don't even have panels installed! With all the sun we have here in Texas you'd think someone would have solar?

My day, tomorrow, is totally tied up with grand sons games and yard work and other honey do's, and Sunday being Easter and I'm totally family committed, I can't imagine where I'm gonna find a solar panel!

I need the solar panel house and the train tracks over water. Found the train tracks on the map and I think the solar building, but they're in different directions. If I can get out early enough tomorrow...

Edit: I've gone after this one in a different manner - no research. Just set out to see if I could find them. Didn't even write them down... Got the three mentioned above yesterday, but couldn't find the other two. Researched the train bridge last night and went for it this morning. Road names had changed, but I did find it. I've ridden through I don't know how many places looking for a single f'ing solar panel on a building, but have still come up short so far. May take another ride this afternoon if possible.

Grab!

Didn't think I was going to make this one...

1 - A dam




2 - A house / building with solar panels


From the side showing the solar panels:




3 - An Icecream stand. A mom and pop type, not a chain like DQ.



4 - A deli, must say deli on the sign.



5 - Train tracks over water

New list

1) train tracks going UNDER water.
(kidding )



1) A wishing well

2) A long stretch of two lane road in front of your bike with no other vehicles in view

3) A bait and tackle shop (not sure what this might be called in other parts of the world - but a place to get fishing supplies.)

4) Your bike with a body of water behind it containing a boat clearly in view

5) A sign indicating the road is going to end

File pic prevention device: date stamp of today or later - or - your glove hanging in the left side of the image

Trying to keep this one out of town. Spent all afternoon riding downtown and I'm done with that for a while. And, as always, if I've included something that doesn't translate well to other parts of the world, please feel free to let me know just how un-worldly I am and suggest an appropriate substitution.

Well done, I went out again this afternoon for about an hour, and I still can't find anything solar! But I did get the next tag in the "by the numbers" game...

I went out to get this list without trying to lay out my route first figuring I'd see a solar something somewhere. No luck on that at all. Had to googlebing it for a while to find something suitable.

Mispillion River


5) A sign indicating the road is going to end
In this case, the bridge is out a little ways up.


Found this one too, road ends at the barrier

Next 5.

2 - A Nature center or or wildlife area.

3 - One lane bridge

4 - A farm with multipule barns

5 - Where the pavement ends. Show me where a paved road turns to dirt or the interesection of a dirt road and a paved road. Show the road sign if possible.

Rule up date.

Deleted the requirement for a file photo prevention item.

Here are the amended rules

1 - Since this is a global game, the general guideline should be things that everyone has a reasonable chance of getting. For example; if you wanted to use a shoreline/beach, it should be a lake or ocean shoreline/beach; not just an ocean shoreline/beach.

2 - File photos are discouraged, but I figure if anyone is anal enough to predate or doctor shots just to make a grab they can have it because it is probably all they have in life.

3 - Needless to say, the person who wins is excluded from participating in the challenge he/she puts up. Also, the list poster need only post the list, not pics of the items.

KEEP DISTANCES IN MIND. DO NOT SET A TAG LIST THAT WILL REQUIRE LONG RIDES (OVER 200 MILES) TO GET TAGS. EXAMPLE - 5 STATE CAPITOLS OR AIRPORTS IN 5 STATES. KEEP IT DOABLE IN ONE ENJOYABLE DAY RIDE.

Your game and your decision....I liked the file prevention...I liked the twist it put in the game....was not very active in this but I always knew the list and the prevention item.....but I guess the BS in Greater Flugistan Multi-tag flooded over into this game....oh well....now it is not much different than other wildcard games, just more to grab....Sorry if I sound negative.

Don't watch the greater flugistan version of this. Always seemed like this crowd was laid back enough to prevent any of those sort of problems. Time stamp is plenty, although I can't get a time stamp if I'm using my cell phone - which has caused me to lose a couple shots. No big deal. It's a game and the purpose is riding.

OK, I was just made aware of this game, it looks like more of a game than a drama thread. So I guess I am in.
