Copper Mine, VG

Yes, correct - it is the remains of the Copper Mine on Virgin Gorda, BVI. You are up!

Fred, thanks. But no. Total [censored] move. I realized Adrian’s pic was the last post on the page. Zanshin’s guess was on the next page. While looking at the enlarged version of Adrian’s pic I was so sure I was right (I was not), I did not see there was another page. So, total [censored] move.

Yes, I agree, a very interesting location to visit. I would have liked to see more of your photos. That long, walk up the hill gave it away for me. The last time I was there was several years ago and some of those buildings near the parking area did not exist at that time. I've been busy today but will look for a photo in a little while.

Re: Game Time Part 14 - 12/18/2020 06:34 AM

Sleepychef - I lived in the Beggar's Bush area close to the docks while in Dublin (unfortunately, not in the really gentrified area but in the working class neighborhood where my accent (or lack of it) really stood out). I had planned on doing a James Joyce and testing Guinness at a different pub each night, but early on went into a small local pub filled with fisherman and factory workers. They went silent when I walked in and I got some pointed looks when I ordered a pint and it became clear that I wasn't a local. I wasn't close to the door and was debating how I would get out without losing too much blood when I hit upon a plan and loudly ordered a round. That worked and it also turned out that their Guinness was really good and far cheaper than in the pubs downtown, so it became my "local" as well. But man, do the Irish love to argue! I had many an argument there, often having to switch sides because.... well, just because.

Posted By: Fran

Re: Game Time Part 14 - 12/18/2020 05:20 PM

No Mike, not in Europe. This is a US location so I guess this isn't really fair to you guys from across the pond although some may have visited including one Englishman during the action.

Hint, the trees on the far ridge are about 1 mile away. Approximately 12,500 men tried to cross this space while 150 cannons and thousands of rifles fired on them from that ridge. Only a handful made it, 6000 never returned to the starting point.

No Fred, not that, this was battle related. It was the turning point that ended the three day battle and a rare tactical blunder ordered by Lee.

Re: Game Time Part 14 - 12/18/2020 11:13 PM

Bingo! We have a winner.

Yes, this is the actual fields that these men were ordered to cross. The first photo was from the starting point. Their objective was the trees on the ridge. The attack was hampered by fences and gullies. Whether their cause was just or not, one cannot doubt the courage it took for those men to make this charge knowing full well they had little chance to make it and a great chance to die violently, as many did.

If I win again I promise to try and find photos more worldly so all have a chance.

Re: Game Time Part 14 - 12/19/2020 01:12 PM

There certainly have been a bunch of really interesting pictures posted! The only problem at this point is that most of us, like me, have basically run out of pictures. Perhaps we need to think about a new series. Something like, here's my favorite place in the world and here's why? Thoughts?

So to be fair I see that bridge every day. At work we put up travel cams from all over the world since we are not going anywhere. That bridge is one of them.

So location on this one.

As everyone has said running out of pictures someone will know this one quickly.

I’m open to whatever the game morphs into!

Ellen, have a nice trip and I don't envy anyone travelling now. As far as this game goes, I really enjoy it and don't know we could have something similar without pictures. I'll keep scrounging along for pics as long as I can, but TomB will be back soon and he probably can post for a long time and just let us guess.
Anyway, here goes one I dredged up.

Re: Game Time Part 14 - 12/28/2020 06:32 PM

Hmm... as a German I recognize both the beer brand and part of the band name with "Allgäu". But I am fairly certain that this is not one of the beer brands allowed to make a "tent" at the Wies'n (Oktoberfest) but without resorting to Mr. Google I'm not absolutely certain, so my only guess would be the Oktoberfest in München (only 300Km from my current curfewed location in Bavaria) but I have to admit that I'm not sanguine about my guessing this correctly since I recall that only 6 breweries are allowed and I can think of 4-5 of them...

OK, so Porsche and Mercedes Benz fans must be taking the day off of the game.

Second biggest beer festival in the world, goes by the name Cannstatter Volksfest. (that's where I was).

Neckar River
Schlossgarten and Wilhelma Zoo

Any idea on the city yet?

Sleepy chef wins. Stuttgart is the city. I can recommend that if you have a hankering for an Oktoberfest to go there. Much less touristy and a more local feel.

And if you like cars, museums are good too.
