I missed all those signs yesterday because I was thinking this one had been done. So took about a 70 miles ride today to get this one. I know ...I'm so tortured!
Next up, at a race track
Oops, did race tracks, Jack found a couple of thongs hanging in a tree, that could've been an interesting subject.
How about a cornerstone plaque on a building

Doesn't look like a plaque on a building to me. Nice try, though.

Ok, I guess no one can find a building with a plaque on it. Let's got for a cemetery headstone from the 1800s or older.

There's some good cemeteries in town with old oaks and Spanish moss and ambiance but I don't think I'd get away with thumping into the cemetery grounds!

Boo ha, ha, ha.
That's what I was thinking.

Somehow I can picture my RE and me in the middle of a cemetery with 40 lawn keepers with rakes and shovels waving in the air and 20 power lawn mowers converging on me from all directions.
Of course in my area they will all be screaming in Spanish so I won't know what their saying.  Even so, I'm sure I will be putting my 28 horsepower to good use.   ;D

Zombie grounds keepers? Sounds like a Peter Jackson movie!

If I lived on the east coast, as in Boston, I'd drive up to one of these street side graveyards, add a bit of zoom on the camera and shoot through the fence. Many graveyards have roads running through them that are open to the public.

There are some mid 1800's headstones near here but you can't read a thing on them, the writing has worn away with the weather. Must have been made with soft stonework.

OK, Since tombstones seem to be for naught, my new Challenge will be an Enfield at a Polo ground. The guys across the pond should have a crack at this one!

I had high hopes of getting a photo of my RE at a polo field so, after voting I rode 18 miles out to Westworld.
The local Polo Club plays there.

When I got there I found the huge grass covered field I think they play on but with no signs or bleachers or anything else that looked like a game field except for a couple of large orange cones I decided, nah!  Looks like a big pasture to me and there aren't even any cows to make it interesting. :(

This leaves the Polo contest still open for one of you. :)

We have a county park that is called the polo grounds tucked away in a mountain canyon so I looked it up to see if there is still polo happening.  Turns out that there were only a few polo games ever played there and they were staged games to sell property in the 1920's.  So I'm out too.
