click to search using Google MapsWow. Yes I’m writing here again. Scavengeroogle is back, at least for now. I bet you all thought that I’d hiked into the Sierra Nevadas never to return.

Truthfully, the combination of a vacation in Mammoth and a refrigerator at home that decided to stop working over that vacation conspired to stop me from working on Scavengeroogle for the past two weeks or so. Have you ever had to figure out what to do with 15 pounds of rotten meat? Fun. Anyhow, I finally got a fridge (I’ve discovered that it’s very, very difficult to live without a fridge!) yesterday so I can continue putting out clues now. I dunno if anyone is still checking this site, but if you are… hello!

I’m fairly certain that this geometric shape of what looks like a bullseye inside of a triangle has already been found on any number of googlemap sites, but I decided to post it up anyhow. Might be good to ease back into Rooglin’ with an easier clue. This one comes from Jan and she (he?) had also sent in a whole bunch of word hints along with it. Guess what? I’m not using any of them. Because I’m just idiotic about word hints as usual. The bullseye triangle is visible at 14/18, this thing is quite large. For hints:

“Corn Creek”

Shouldn’t be too bad. This’ll be a two day clue again as I struggle to get back into the swing of things. Oh, I forgot to mention that I went fishing in a snow blizzard near Yosemite. Quite fun, if you forget about the frostbite…

[Edit: 10:16 am Tues - I knew this one would be easy and that I had seen it elsewhere (as had many of you), and that seems to be the case judging on the write-ins. But anyhow, thank you all again for playing! I’m still a bit amazed that people are patient enough to check in with the site every so often after being inactive for 2 weeks.]

    Yeah, right! Like we don’t all check a couple of times a day just to make sure there’s not a new clue!
