Ok - one more: Is place 2 Santa Luzia?

That's it for me - have to go practice now. :)


No.

Hint: The correct island is exactly 5,274 miles away from Santa Luzia.

Well, I was going to try to get this one, but my Google Earth keeps freezing up. I think I've killed it!

Can't do anymore, Pete.

I've made an error in scoring; since there 9 points to be had (remember one was worth 3)

I prematurely declared Monica the winner! :oops:

So out of 9 available points Monica has 4; she needs just one more to win!

Hint#1 Nathan (Place #6 Shreveport, Monica)

Hint #2 You'll need a lot of Tallent, go flipping through a Hall, meet a Ladd and consult with a Mason to get this one. But be warned; DON'T Beggs for an answer or you'll be Inching with Payne! (You will need to use Google with this one; the hint practically gives it to you!.)

Hint#3 One of these is of a LARGE city with a Large populous; that fact narrows it down more than you think.

Hint#4 One is of an Arctic Sea. (Place #4 Lincoln Sea, Monica)

Hint#5 Tiny they are but most holy in name. This saintly island is but one of five, she is muy motherly! This tiny archipelago sits exactly 7703.29 miles from Sydney, AU. Name the pictured island for 3 points!. (Isla Maria Madre, Julius gets 3 pts.)

Hint#6 This island fears to tread where Polar bears play. And can be helpful with a sleigh. (Place #5 Reindeer Island, Monica)

Hint #7 You'll vocalize like a horse when you guess this city, which partially shares the name of a certain pirate ambulator. (Place #1 Winnipeg, Manitoba. Monica gets the point)



The scores are:
Monica---4
Juufa-----3


Points needed to win outright---5

Ok, I rebooted my computer (twice!) and reset my internet connection (modem box and router box) and my Google Earth is working, for right now, anyway.

So....place no. 2 is Isla Maria Magdalena. Or it could be Isla Maria Madre.

You've put me in a spot; the right answer is Isla Maria Madre. But you gave two answers, the first one more affirmative than the last, so I will do as Jeopardy does (ooh, sorry) and take your first response. Although the two islands are extremely similar.

Juufa gave one answer (Isla Maria Madre) so I count that one. Or in this case, three.

The other answers, Juuf, are incorrect.

Hint #2 is referring to an author, a director, an actor and a fictional character. How does this possibly relate to a place?!?! :lol:

Scores:

Monica- -4
Julius- - -3

This is hard! I cannot figure out those last two. I'll try one more time late tonight, but that's after a little bit of wine, so don't expect much.

J- you could pull ahead right now!

I was thinking; is the oblique angle on the cityscape pic confounding an ordinary search?

J- (In Alex Trebekian style) Ooh, sorry.


Detroit is incorrect.

Remember, I'm going for the body of water in place #1 (hint#2.)

Is that the Jersey Shore? Greg Tallent grew up along there. An exact name? I cannot tell you. But I say "The Jersey Shore"

No, but you're searching the right way.
