Did my Glacier National Park anecdote throw a couple of you?


No, but the Big Sky "clue" certainly did!

^_^ I thought for sure I would lose after being ahead just by 50 pts. Responding only to the last few except for the last one haha.

That last one I knew it was somewhere in Europe area. (The structure of the building.) But I just couldn't figure out where. So oh well...if I would've kept going I probably would've looked there next but oh well haha.

Can't wait for the next one.

Thanx again to Hostrauser for hosting this 8-)

<whistle> FOUL!

The Aa River in France would appear before the Aare River in the big book! Ooo...this is a much better ending. A CONTROVERSIAL CLUE!
:evil: Just wait 'til next year!

Did I say it would appear FIRST? ;) Re-read the clue.

No need to wait till next year... just wait a couple of months. :)

"The Big Book of Rivers" is obviously a children's book, and would only have one river per page. :)

"Just wait 'til next month" doesn't have the same ring to it.

:lol:

You're right. It would just be a big picture with like ten words at the bottom of the page.

If we're going to talk about fouls, perhaps we should mention this. I stumbled across it a couple of seconds ago when I tried to find out what the "Big Book of Rivers" is.

It was the exact same question you had in the trivia here. Right down to the "Big Book of Rivers" reference. Here's a link to a google cache version of the page Yahoo! Answers.
