After 4 shaky searches - isn't Texas a towering distance from New York?

And the world is better off for it. You saw what happens when they mix a bit.

Harvey, look at my #86 post on the previous page (click here) with the map of the site.

The Gmap4 map is interactive, so you can play with the controls. Try switching from Satellite to Hybrid view, zoom in and out, scroll the map around, and pretty soon the answer will be burning in your brain, man. wink

(AlanK's reply to #86 was all I needed.)

Steve, that is exactly how I got it (already).

My Labor Day comment is a clue for anyone else.

PS two or three of us have it. Is it time for the original poster to confirm and link to story. Are them the rules?

Oooooh! Sorry. I missed the point that the event revolves around Labor Day. My bad. blush

Rules? ...What rules? wink   Seems like AlanK could just declare the puzzle solved, and post a link.

Steve, anything said ( especially by wagga) will and can be held against us,
ie, clue.

Rules are for knife fights and Calvinball.

I figure that anyone can post a solution any time. I do try to hold off on, rather than updating the summary too early, but admit that my criteria are arbitrary and variable.

Sorry for the delay, looks like there's a burning desire to confirm that you've got this one solved. It's Black Rock City, NV, home of the Burning Man Labor Day Week celebration of whatever you want to celebrate, man. I've always wanted to attend one of these and the aerial is pretty cool looking. I was expecting to provide some clues but this group is already on fire. Amazed again...

Black Rock City Maps

Side bet: I claim that wagga must have attended at least one Burning Man.

Followup on a golden oldie:

What In The World Happened Here? XXII(22)

The Poe Toaster recently failed to appear for the third year in a row. Nevermore.

You get your very own twisted puzzle:

13040; 13262; 15432. Two of those could stop the other getting larger. These numbers are subject to change today and in the following three days.

Ponting a Yank in that direction is hardly cricket.

Well, the third-highest scorer was caught by the highest scorer of all time in test cricket. This game, cast in junior stick&ball terms, would be like Ty, Hank & Babe playing in the same game. Or something like that.

Back to regular programming...

Gotta agree. I know nothing of cricket, but I learned a bit today.
