Using the following clues (the map above is purely decorative) in combination with Street View, and online tools such as MAPfrappe work out my location.
Although Roman, THC’s chief puzzlewright, would be interested to know how long it takes you to solve this solo foxer, he’d rather you didn’t put spoilers or solutions in the comments.
Today you’ll find me roughly two miles from the site of an unusual accident and around 89 kilometres from the centre of a partially recognised state’s capital city. The accident occurred in 2001. The partially recognised state has a human appendage on its flag. I’m standing on a concrete road that hairpins less than a kilometre from my location. About the same number of people that call Berlin home, live in the country I’m in. Over 500 metres above sea level, and approximately 400 feet from a yellow crane, I’m equilongitudinous with a country that has a single red star on its flag and a photo of an MV-22 Osprey on its Wikipedia page, and equilatitudinous with a (different) country that has a single red star on its flag and a photo of an orbital launch vehicle on its Wikipedia page.
You’re probably in the right place if you can see…
- A sand-coloured mutt
- An EU flag
- Dipping strata
- A white Suzuki Jimny with a roof-mounted lightbar.
- Letters from an alphabet composed of more than 30 letters
- A yellow cliff-edge warning sign
- A structure that appeared on a postage stamp in 2022
- Three people wearing face masks
I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.
