BUT is anyone following this near:
Salt Lake City,
Lisbon,
San Fran,
London,
Grahamstown,
Dresden,

Fort Worth,
Kansas City

If, so, got a favor to ask of you for a location based game I play.
More info..?

it's by google, for Android devices. Motorcycle=perfect for the game, quick to zip between portals capturing, spin out around downtown to regen energy, can easily go up on sidewalks, dirt hills, paths, etc.
(Assuming you don't have a strong urge to follow all those pesky guidelines)



But every once in a while, google will do "dead drops" placing items in real life locations, that people need to go to decode the items.

I'm not encouraging illegal behavior, just help in a different geo based game.

This one's probably pretty easy.
There's an O2 resort here in Korea, but way too far away for me to get it this time of the year.

I bet y'all could find one of those "H" for "hospital" signs, at least in the U.S. I'd do it myself but I'm too busy working.

That makes no sense to me whatsoever. I do know a few guys in Frederick though.

I had a quick look at the ingress site.
Pretty sick stuff.

Anyway, I'm a couple hours away from Zürich, so unfortunately no way to get there at the moment.

No worries, all were grabbed within 2 hours of them posting the coordinates.
It's actually a really cool back story, lots of work being put into it. (And a few screw ups, like having "item codes" be incremental. Cause no one on the internet would think to try the next number in a series. Or write a script to try ALL the next numbers) ;)

If you have an Android phone, it's a great way to waste hours and get some exercise. I did get a strange look from the police last night as I kept jogging around downtown at 2 am.

It's up to the guy that picked the Tag, but I don't see "H" for hospital meeting the qualifications.

"H" doesn't refer to an element in your context, but a hospital, and the tag specifies 'no creativity'.

If it's still standing after I finally get my ()#@)()#@#)( flywheel puller tomorrow, I'm all over this.

I'll even get the exact same O2

Well, it implies hospital, but really says nothing but H, so I think it would fly.

Thanks for the clarification. I thought from your original post that the letter or letters could not be part of another word or phrase but had to stand alone.

Edit: and that that was the only requirement. I see it's a little tougher. I don't think I've ever seen a sign that stood for an element. Can't think of one anyway. But it's sleeting here, my bike is at home, so I ain't gonna make this grab anyway. Carry on.

If it's more obscure than I thought, I don't have any problem changing it. Like I think I mentioned, I saw several candidates within a few miles of the house the other day.

Edit: Actually, screw it. Get either the symbol or the word. Ex. Oxygen, Iron, Gold, etc. Bonus points for Boron or Manganese.

I have seen a strip clue with Platimum in the name.
