Next challenge..

Your E9x at a five-point intersection.
Yes, this one gets us out on the road and exploring, which I think is the best part of this game.

I was going out to grab some McDs coffee and figured I would check to see if there was a new challenge - 9min detour later - here goes:

This intersection is very close to BMW Seattle, right at the border of Chinatown, the stadiums where the Seahawks and Mariners play, Amazon's offices, and also where the expressway (commute only lanes) begin/end for a freeway. Here's a link to Google Maps so you can see for yourself:

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=seattl...12,211.17,,0,0

Pictures are only so-so, but this is the 5-point intersection that I drive through quite often. You have to be careful that you know which lane you're in so that you can make the appropiate turn, especially in commute traffic.

More pics later.

Nice job... I would choose E9x over coffee anyday. The Google Maps helped. APPROVED!

Your intersection has stop signs. Mine has traffic lights. Both are damn crazy to drive thru - I'll bet you hear a horn honk at least once every hour.

Naw....I got my coffee AFTERWARDS and it was a fresh pot too. I'm on a first name basis with my 24-hour McDs (sad, I know). I had some drama going on last night when I got back home, so didn't get a chance to add more pics. I figured that Google Maps would come in handy (agreed).

This one might be a little tricky - but maybe not.

NEXT CHALLENGE:

A PICTURE OF YOUR E9X WITH THE RED REFECTIONS FROM THE BACK OF THE ROAD MARKERS (WHITE OR ORANGE DUMMY DOTS).


You don't have to be driving in the wrong direction, just taking a picture from just the right angle. I had 3 other ideas to choose from, but this should take a little bit of time to get just right.

Just some other pics as I was driving to downtown early this am.

You can see the BMW Seattle dealership in the last photo. It's only 3 blocks away.

I'm sorry, my IQ is like 57. What the heck are you talking about? Red reflectors orange dummy dots? How would a white reflector turn red?

You know when your on the highway and the reflectors are white? If you drove your car the wrong way on the highway the reflection you would see would be red...indicating your going the wrong way.

That's what I thought. Here in the northeast I guess the highway division figures that no one would be sober enough to realize that there are reflectors on the ground at all! After all they open up the breakdown lanes for regular traffic, that's how stupid they are up here.

Right out in front of the store next to/on handicap spot. Stood in plaza road for the pic. The snot nosed kids were looking at me funny too.

Edit/Update: I wait till Panicos is up, I am thinking looking like a fool is usually a go. As Alex said something along the line, as long as the kids get a happy face, for me, adults looking who cares.

Thanks Panicos, maybe for Christmas evening delivering toys.

An easy one for Christmas. We have done a home that is overly decorated last year for the Christmas season, so this year how about… Your E9X next to a home that is tastefully decorated in the Christmas spirit. Must be fully decorated, and lit up for it to count.
