I think we need a banker.

Someone who is not an active player, but is entrusted by the original poster (OP) with the exact event (by PM or email).

In the case of AlanK's CXXIII (123), the location can be found & demonstrated - but many events have occurred here over the years. Nobel Prize? Can't find one. AC-powered Machinery? I'm sure AlanK has something in mind. A banker would be the arbitrator for the correct answer. The Aviator's Chapel at the Mission Inn in Riverside was an example of place, not event. I really didn't have a specific event in mind, thinking finding the place was sufficient. In the case of the Cat & Rat mummified in the pipe organ, the specific event that I had in mind was the quotation by Joyce in "Finnegans Wake" - that was found with amazing speed.

Just sayin'.

I have no problem with the idea of a "banker" if one can be found. On the other hand, I am happy to trust the original poster with keeping track of what hs/she is after.

In the case of #123, there is current controversy that was featured in an LA Times article this month. wagga clearly has the location pictured in my original post, so I guess it is up to me to push for identification of what is going on there.

Didn't read the LA Times - it's got to be sex out there in the desert. Or lack of it.

I don't know how much sex there is out there, but everyone around has a Y chromosome.

I was struck by the fact that a certain formerly monastery-like institution in Pasadena made the leap over 40 years ago that this place in the desert is contemplating today..

What In The World Happened Here? CXXIV (124):

I can assure you that this place really does exist, in fact I have been there. And I can also assure you that no-one has bungled it up with Photoshop.

Nice picnic spot. You bring the butter, I'll bring the knife.

Good. So what is the event.

Other than an ancient volcano, not much happened in a place with names in surrounded towns like Coonamble, Gilgandra, Gulargambone, Tooraweenah and Coonabarabran. At least the last one does have an astronomy observatory. Good place to be later this year.

One thing that happened had to do with rogaine.

Close, but no cigar. This place has something in common with the Breadknife, but for a different reason.

Harvey, you just beat me to the punch on this one. My Geologist friend checks out this thread occasionally and he nailed it immediately. He's been there and has pictures with horses in the shot.

As for the historical event? Four corners landmark with all that history, remnants of an ancient volcano (similar to Breadknife Rock), movie background?

Climbers are banned from both formations. In the Breadknife case it is to protect walkers below from rockfall. In the Shiprock case, it is for (Native American) religious reasons.

Exactly! Ask me how I know.

Also in Cuba, too (if you missed the cigar clue), but for no other reason than the capricious Random Control Freak Oddness of a doddering, dying despotic dictator.

I was wondering... how do you know?

Alan, I will tell the story for him

After he waved to the Queen on her trip to Oz, he was in Warrumbungle, a rock fell off Breadknife, hit him in the head, and ever since then he has had a mental disorder forcing him to write the cryptic letters WITWHH an infinity number of times.

And here we are, the beneficiaries of that falling rock.
