    I know you guys are fond of your TOR games and so am I. My co worker showed me Venatu.com one day at work because I talk about TOR's all day long.

    Well turns up my mapping MOS in the USAF proved helpful. We ended up winning Game 2. The gamemarker made the rules.. You research the clues.

    Adventurer Riders have the best skills for this game. I want Inmates to win every game after this. I would like to say the only reason we didn;t win game one is because we didn;t know about the game.

    Game three opens at midnight.

    heres the map I created. based off the clues...

    then the game marker posted a photo of a football field near the tag.

    It was over by then.. I found the football field. Contacted a local of bimmerforums (ADV didn't provide) and he went out.

    Cheers... Wade F... from team ramrod. :freaky

    Well, yeah, but I'm not going to put the effort into listing out all the counties in 24 states until another clue or three is posted.

    Odd,
    So these states:

    Alabama
    Arizona
    California
    Connecticut
    Florida
    Illinois
    Iowa
    Kentucky
    Maine
    Massachusetts
    Minnesota
    Missouri
    Nebraska
    New Hampshire
    New Mexico
    North Carolina
    Ohio
    Oregon
    South Carolina
    South Dakota
    Texas
    Vermont
    Washington
    Wisconsin

    And counties that don't start with any of these letters:
    TOM RAY MaGLIoZzi
    Or that start with either
    B, C, D, E, F, H, J, K, N, P, Q, S, U, V, W, X, or Y

    That's a big chunk of space.

    They add clues every day (22 hours). The guy has some fixation on the number 2... :huh
    You can buy clues in advance of them being posted after day somethingorother. People buying clues fund the prize money. Seems like it could be a cool game. Best scenario would be to have teammates spread around the country.

    Cool. So there's like 180,000+ on our team? That'll work out to a little over 1/2ยข each in price money. :D Regardless, I'm definitely watching.

    Clue #2:

    Bandits, Bikers, and, Baby's Oh my

    Twas exciting to watch that Artifact recovery on Facebook, even without the Artifact. So cool that there was a baby there. I am goin coon hunting in the morning. Draw a line from Karnack to the center of the oval in Sturgis and down to the center of the oval in Daytona. The artifact is not within 22 miles of that line, we will call this Paradise rd.
    X = the number of times "baby" is said in this video this video.
    The county does not begin with F or G.
    Sorry for delay...time zone got me....

    No clue. I'm starting to hate his clues. I'm not a detective, nor do I play one on the Internet. Cuts way into ride time. :deal :D

    Wow. Just glancing through the clues yesterday, I figured maybe down to a quarter to a third of the continental US.
