Forde, I'm rooting for you. It would be nice for someone who lives outside the U.S. to grab this tag, and indeed make it a "global" multi grab.

Besides, we used to be neighbo(u)rs, as I was born just across the North Channel from you.

I certainly wouldn't hesitate to speak up if something was on a list that didn't exist there. Most folks are far more interested in keeping the game moving rather than trying to be obscure about it.

Working on this one in Germany, too. How "tower" does the clock tower have to be? We have lots of clocks on poles over here.

Also, if a pic has more than one thing in it, does that cover both, or should the instances be unique?

I'm easy. After almost 3 weeks, you're ok on both points.

In fact, after thinking about it, a pic with more than one item in it is worth bonus points!

Oh. OK, have to go reshoot the clock pole pic. I think I can get three in one.

Grab!

Grab!

I wanted to wait for the person in Germany (or Detroit) to grab this to bring some new players in, but everything else fell through this morning and I went to see what I could find....

Sorry, new person in Germany (or Detroit).

(And this should be five in a row for 2011 Versys's. )



Updated tag:

1) a building with a slate or tile roof
One slate:


and one tile:



2) a building with 2, or more, arched windows



3) a suspension or arch bridge



just because)
Archie Bunker (arched windows, arched bridge, Archie Bunker, you know....)




4) a barn with advertising painted on it
Couldn't find this one even though I'm nearby plenty of farms...


5) a clock tower - either free standing or attached to a building



Wildcard) a bus or train station that's currently being used as such. You can use one, or the other, instead of one of the above


From the other side:

New list Oct. 21, 2012

New list.

Trying to think "global" to the extent that I can, and trying to keep it simple...

1) A vehicle made in a country other than the one your feet are standing on

2) A view from the top level of a multilevel parking structure

3) A view from somewhere beneath ground level - parking garage, tunnel, etc.

4) Something on a pole or suspended in the air that's not normally there used as advertising. Around here, I can think of a piano, a car, a bulldozer, etc.

5) A field with more than one type of animal in it. If you're going to push the envelope and use some sort of insect or the like, it has to be readily identifiable.

Wildcard) An intersection with more than 2 roads crossing

Way to go wb! You're right, that's five in a row for 2011 Imperial Red V's.

I figured you were trying to be a nice guy and let someone else get the tag, but after 3 weeks what else can you do?

Unfortunately, the streak will stop at five in a row.....even if I grab the tag. My V is in NC and I'm not.

It's the DR or nothing right now.

Oh yeah, forgot you said that. There's another tagger on an '11 Versys. I think he's in NY. Might have to see if I can find him on whichever games he plays and point him here.

No fear. I'm without a two-wheeler right now. So I'll do dirtybyrd a favor and grab this with his Versys. Just mail me your keys and I'll put some miles on it for you.
