Unlike the formidable Friday foxers, the Monday kind are designed with lone truth sleuths in mind. While Roman, my Chief Foxer Setter, would be very interested to know how long it takes you to defox the following brainteaser, he requests that the comments section isn’t used to share solutions or drop hints.
“Where am I?”
Using the following clues (the map above is purely decorative) in combination with Street View (all Solo Foxer solutions are Street Viewable), MAPfrappe, and other online tools, work out my location. The answer will appear under next Monday’s solo foxer.
Today I’m 2.6 miles from an island that would make an environmentalist weep, and 7.2 miles from a large bronze limb. Standing on a street that’s named after a flower, I’m in a city that shares a Wikipedia disambiguation page with, amongst other things, a 1990s computer game, a movie released less than five years ago, and a notable racehorse. There are two capital cities within a 450 mile radius of my location. Roughly 300 metres away is a shop that sells live bait.
You’re probably in the right place if you can see…
- An EMD GP60
- A GE C44-9W
- A Ford F-150
- A barbell
- A slide
- The words “NORFOLK SOUTHERN”
I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.
(Last week I was here)
Done, with the usual nonsense on my part. These really are a highlight of my week. Thanks Roman.
This was very easy, except we’re not in that city. The city we’re in has more in common with a famous scientist who moved to the area as a child and whose work unwittingly featured a man who may or may not have shopped 300 meters away.
I’m glad this one is easier than last week, but I lost a lot of time after having been misled by one of the hints… Roman is sly as a fox!
And no wonder I could not find the Foxer last week, I don’t know how to add up the number of years! 😀 But if I’m honest, it was really too hard for me.
