Solo Foxer #14

Unlike the formidable Friday foxers, the Monday kind are designed with lone truth sleuths in mind. Roman, my Chief Foxer Setter, assures me the following brainteaser can be solved single-handedly. Crow all you like in the comments section, but please don’t spoil the puzzle for others by sharing solutions or dropping hints.

“Where am I?”

Using the following clues (the map above is purely decorative) in combination with Street View, Wikipedia, MAPfrappe and other tools, work out my location. The answer will appear under next Monday’s solo foxer.

Today I’m in the Land of the Free, standing on a road named after a US president. The president in question also served as vice president. I’m in a state that has no stars or stripes on its flag, and is, in population terms, about a tenth of the size of one of its neighbours. To visit that neighbour I’d need to walk five paces south. I share longitude with three countries beginning with C. I share latitude with an island liberated about two weeks after D-Day. The nearest Interstate is 230 metres away and has a two digit number. Both digits are odd and added together they equal 10. The closest nuclear reactor is 4.5 miles away. If this was September 29 not March 29 I’d be less than a kilometre from an impressive maize maze. If you can see a Walmart truck, a ‘narrow bridge’ sign, and the number ‘1762’ you’re probably in the right place. I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.

  1. Pretty sure I’m in the right place, I’ve got everything but 1762.

    edit: Scratch that, I have 1762 too. Seems like an easier one this week than the last few, thank goodness!

  2. And there I was, wandering around the wrong side of the concert hall like a right mug… but much better luck this week! Thanks Tim, cracking fun like always!

  3. WooHoo – Found it – I was off looking at the wrong Interstate for a while
