TREASURE HUNT

Post by Sias on 16th July 2008, 13:21

I think the one clue threw a couple of people. It read something like this:

“Turn right after Plot 37 on your left…”
At the first T-junction on your right hand side, after about 6,5km, turn right.”

We turned right after Plot 37 and headed on for 6,5km in search of the T-junction. The only T-junction in region of 6,5km from where we turned right was a gravel road, so I knew it wasn’t that. 6,5km became 10km and eventually 13km, so eventually I turned back thinking that we’ve missed it. We rode all the way back to where we’d last turned right, measured 6,5km again and, again nothing. So we headed straight on deciding to skip a couple of answers. As we went ons we saw that the clues were found on the rode we were on.

We then came to realize that the above clue referred to the one and the same right turn. There were a couple of confused bikers though…

Again, It was great fun! Laughing

Treasure Hunt
Question 11 had us totally baffled..... It referred to Q10 which was only a stone throw away......The answer was on a yellow sign from the City Council. Luckily we saw the sign quick enough but only found at the end that the Q10 we were searching for was actually "Question 10".

A warning to all..... Next year we'll know!

Thanks! cheers

I had trouble with my Incoming Mailbox the last week or so, which means I didn't receive those fresh contributions - apart from one or two.

Thinking out loud: The forum is kind of a source, but then you have the duplication issue?
Although the majority of S&P readers dont read the forum, or do they?
Who reads the S&P?


NOTE:
Anyone with pictures, articles, sayings or whatever for the July/August edition - send to dani@bmwclubs.co.za by tomorrow 29th, 17:00.
