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 today’s 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 in a country that doesn’t have diplomatic missions in Argentina, Greece, Mexico, Portugal or Poland. Write the name of this country and, in the process, you’ll also write the name of a music artist who has sold tens of millions of records. The longest perfectly straight border this country possesses is approximately 460 kilometres long. You’ll find me on a dirt road just over a mile from a karting circuit and less than 300 metres from the northern bank of a small reservoir. The nearest airport is named after a woman, the nearest railway line is about three and a half kilometres distant. Closer to a barracks than a hospital, I’m equilatitudinous with an island that’s of great interest to primatologists.
You’re probably in the right place if you can see…
- Tyre tracks
- More trees than people
- A right-hand drive Mitsubishi Pajero
- The words “DO NOT MAKE UNNECESSARY NOISE”
- Three heaps of ash
I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.
