They absolutely have mile markers as do all the US and State routes. My problem is that none of the roads I typically venture on would be more than 100 miles from anywhere! I'll find one though...

Wait a second!!!!! I've been misreading this! Mile markers - I've been thinking of the "distance to" signs. As in "Richmond - 100 miles" or whatever. Holy crap. This just got very different. Dang. Already de-geared and put the bike away.

Looking for a "smack my dumbass on the head" smiley...

List 10

This is sort of what I was looking for last time I posted a list, but more defined:

1) a one lane bridge

2) a section of twisty two lane road

3) something with the word "triangle" in it

4) a four legged animal

5) a 5 pointed star

File photo prevention device: the letter A printed or written on a letter size piece of paper visible anywhere in the picture

Just found this game ... got a question

How picky is everyone on the "file photo prevention" thing? I notice the last grab didn't show it and the latest tag didn't list one. Just curious as I need another tag game. Five isn't enough for me. LOL!

I'd say it's mandatory, but realize that it may be a bit confusing at first. It was for me, anyway. I didn't start this game, but I'll explain it from where I sit, without intending to ruffle any feathers.

So as to prevent anyone from using file photos to claim any of these items, a "file photo prevention item" is listed at the bottom of each list. You're required to include this item in all your pictures. It should be something easy to carry around like a rag or a sock, to mention a couple posted earlier in this list.

I'm certainly willing to overlook the lack of the item posted in my recent list, but would respectfully request that California go back and edit his list post to include one for the current list.

My 2.

This is a great version of this game, Higworld!

I agree with wb in overlooking the errors in Cali's post. We can see that what I believe to be the paper is taped to his tank so he tried. That, and seeing as he is from, or at least lives in CA, we might have to give him a little to figure things out!

Cali, what is your file photo prevention item? You forgot to list one.

I didn't pay attention to the file prevention device, but all my photos were taken today on one continuous ride of about 90 minutes, If we need a file prevention thing on my list, ok, I'll edit and ad one....and the paper taped to the tank was the list of the five items for I wouldn't forget something. It's my old fashioned GPS!

Sorry, I hardly ever read to the end of anyth

List # 12

Going for something different here again.

Pick a band you like and find five different pictures that convey different song titles. It doesn't have to be the EXACT text of the song title in the picture, but it can be if you want.

Example: The Beatles - you could find a restaurant called the Yellow Submarine, a raccoon that's road kill for Rocky Raccoon, a tax preparation office for Tax Man, etc.

I've got a bunch of good examples in mind for a bunch of different bands and wouldn't mind being on the grabbing end of this one down the road some time if someone feels uninspired and wants to repost it.

File photo prevention device: a CD of the band in question in the pic somewhere or alternatively, a piece of paper with the song title written on it.
