PLEASE READ THIS:
[Edit: (01/15/07) I’ve recently noticed a ton of people coming to this page via search due to news stories and whatnot. This was the original Scavengeroogle site which was the first and most popular scavenger hunt game using google maps when they were first launched. It became quite famous (profiled on Wired and G4), but I stopped updating about a year ago because I simply had no time to keep writing up and moderating clues … I don’t upkeep this site anymore, but can see all of the incoming traffic in my stats.
In any case, I believe if you came here from Google Search, you are probably looking for another blog or site that has been on the news. I have noticed in this particular post that someone with the same name as the person(s) that you are most likely looking for had posted comments (I’m not writing down their names here again because I’d like google to stop sending so much unrelated traffic). I believe this is just a massive coincidence, since a reverse IP lookup on the commenter’s location shows it coming from DALLAS. Yes, Dallas and not Missouri.
So, thank you for stopping by: but I don’t believe this site is the one you are looking for. I have actually disabled all the comments on this page, because there is just too much incoming traffic - hopefully, that will propagate through google search in the next couple days. Best Regards, Bryan (Scavengeroogle Admin).]
Aloha. I have been wanting to run this clue for some time now, because I came up with what I thought was a clever title for it. This clue was submitted by Michael J. and i’ve called it “His and Hers Pants”. Cool, huh? I also called it that because I really like this lo-fi indiepop band called Pants Yell! (exclamation point is part of the name) so the word pants was on my mind.
This clue is actually extremely visible at 11/15, so I’m assuming this will be cake for a lot of people. And the “re-find” I attempted was really fast. I just really liked the way this clue looks, so if it’s easy then it’s easy. What can ya do?
By the way, I’m getting a lot of clue submission for Planes and Plane Shadows. In general, I try to stay away from anything to do with planes because although they look really cool, nearly all of them have already been spotted on the various google map sightseeing places. So, unless you can prove to me without a doubt that the plane you found has not been recorded on the various sites already, I probably won’t use it. Not that I don’t applaud your effort in finding it!
Hmm.. word clues for this one. I had a really tough time with this. The line between easy and hard was never so blurred.
“Trail where they cried ended SE of here”
I ended up changing the ones that Michael sent in… not sure if this will make them a little more difficult or a little harder. So wait for the region clue if you’re choking on herring. OK see you in a bit; I need to get back to waiting in line for Star Wars…
[Edit: 9:43 PDT - Agh. Sorry, there was no image! My auto-publish thingy screwed up and I didn’t get to check until just now. Anyhow, the correct pic should be there…]
[Edit: 10:42 PDT - Not sure how much this helps, but the region clue = Oklahoma]
[Edit: 12:00 PDT - I’m not sure but this seems to be tough… I gotta go out for awhile so I’ll leave a clue for the meantime: Cherokee]
[Edit: 1:09 PDT - Arghhh… all right last hint: Cherokee is NOT a city. Well, it is but going in that direction will herringise you…]
