Better pic of this Eagle Scout project. He's now a Marine officer serving in Afghanistan as an interpreter

Next 7

Let's see if we can finish these within the month

November Holidays- I'll give 8, pick 7

1) Something that calls to mind National Model Railroad Month (could be a real train as well)
2) Something that calls to mind Native American Heritage Month
3) Something associated with why Gunpowder (aka Guy Fawkes) Day is celebrated
4) A recycling depot/station to celebrate America Recycles Day
5) Something to celebrate World Peace Day
6) Something spooky for Occult Day
7) a picture from somewhere out of your state for Go For a Ride Day
8) Something that ably represents Absurdity Day

Just a "welcome to spring reminder" and something that newer members might not be aware of.

That number 8 might have been the deal sealer! People probably thought you were talking about the game!

Take it down to 4 items, and hold the criticism for creative license, and you might have a game again! If someone takes the time to wander for you, they should get plenty of slack to keep the game moving. It's all about the riding, right, not the anal compulsive aspects of a multi-tag game…..

just saying….

They stand as is. No more difficult to get 7 of these than any others. Could have gotten one a month since November and settled the issue. I've collected 7 of the 8 at various times on day rides the past couple weeks- so anyone who thinks it's too hard just lacks imagination, attention span, or desire.

Or the requisite anal retentiveness!

Going out on a limb here, but me thinks the list is what stalled the game so holding so dearly to it will not improve things. Then again, it is your list and it can sit until whenever.

Why the fuss,,,, easy peasy....

1) Something that calls to mind National Model Railroad Month (could be a real train as well)

Had to wait for the train at the crossing




2) Something that calls to mind Native American Heritage Month

Taconic Trail.... Rt 2 loosely follows what was a Taghkanic Indian footpath.




3) Something associated with why Gunpowder (aka Guy Fawkes) Day is celebrated




4) A recycling depot/station to celebrate America Recycles Day




5) Something to celebrate World Peace Day

Grafton Peace Pagoda




6) Something spooky for Occult Day

Supposedly this old cemetery that has graves dating back to the late 1700's is haunted.




7) a picture from somewhere out of your state for Go For a Ride Day

Henry Bridge, North Bennington, VT




8) Something that ably represents Absurdity Day

My town hall,,,,, almost everything that happens here is absurd!!!

Just a bunch of random stuff....

1. A private school
2. An Armory
3. A Painted Lady (Victorian house)
4. A rail depot, preferably repurposed into a home or business
5. Non chain coffee roaster
6. A sponsored road
7. Motel with cabins

Wild card.... dealer for the brand of bike you are riding.

2. An Armory. I had a great picture lined up for this, but Security objected to me taking pictures of camo-painted things. They were very insistent
