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 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, you’ll find me in a country that exports more wheat than Poland and imports more coffee than the UK. I’m on a road named after a man who died of unnatural causes in 1917 and I’m equilatitudinous with a spot frequently occupied by massive timber rafts. Within 500 metres of the nearest pharmacy, helipad, and firearms emporium, I’m less than a kilometre from the banks of a river that, elsewhere, serves as the border between two countries. My antipode is roughly 300 miles from dry land.
You’re probably in the right place if you can see…
- The number ‘100’
- A cherry tree
- A traffic calming measure
- An EV charging station
- A textiles recycling bin
- A greeting
- Puma trainers
(Last week I was here)
Sunflowers not ahoy!
With the big 100 things have certainly got harder. At least for me. After a couple of hours I’ve got candidate countries and rivers but can’t tie them together with the only candidate I’ve got for the raft. Pah.
I’ll come back to it in a couple of days.
Thanks all the same Roman.
Oh yeah, this one is completely doing my head in too. I’m about 80% sure on the country, but haven’t really progressed further. If it’s the river I’m thinking of, it’s quite a wide search area, especially since I also have a general idea of the timber raft, but not specific enough. Roman in quite the cryptic mood this week!
Roman insists this one is “actually pretty easy”.
I think it only took me a couple of minutes to get down to four countries, but whether I’ll get any further…
I’m hoping the not-quite-antipodal land is obviously dry, and not tiny islands!
Easiest one ever, assuming I’m in vaguely the right place.
A matter of minutes to locate the road, which would have been faster if I’d guessed the correct side of the river.
the number ‘100’ – I can see 130
windfalls – I’d say pumpkins
photinias – I wouldn’t recognise
puma trainers – wouldn’t recognise either; are they being worn?
This one did look impossible, but didn’t take long in the end.
