A.K.A 99 PROBLEMS

Darcshadow created a scavenger hunt gallery. Send Darcshadow a PM and he'll get an album and login created for you if you don't already have one.

I would suggest when you upload your photos to the gallery to give them the title of the challenge. No matter what you call them, if you start the name with the number of the challenge it will make things easier to sort and keep track of what you have done.

Example: 6. your bike with some signage


Once images are posted to the gallery, you can embed the image onto the forum so you only upload it once.
To get the BBCode Formatted Links, from the gallery, click on the image you want, then on the left side of the screen there is a little Icon that kind of looks like a wall with an arrow pointing to the right. Click on that then select "Get Item URLs". Easy as that, I suggest using the thumbnail option to keep the thread cleaner.

Can we really trust that everyone will actually start this next friday since it is posted here alittle over a week in advance? I think that it should start when the list is officially posted. Just saying...

22 is not as far away as you think...I know where there is one close to this area but I don't remember if you can see it from the parking lot.

LOL!! I see what you are saying now. I agree it is far away BUT the list is posted. If miles didn't want anyone to start until the 22nd then he should have posted it on the 22nd :D I won't start until the 22nd but it is VERY VERY tempting :((

Oh god *please* renumber them 1-100!

And the Hayabusa one needs to change. I don't have a first Hayabusa, so how do I know which is another one? :D

Edit: Oh cool, you renumbered while I was typing. :D

I'm tempted too, but Miles' thread, Miles' rules.

Just think though, you get a whole week to plan the most efficient routes to pick up items on the list before anybody can start on them.

Sadly, yes I know. DAMN IT miles!!! Why did you have to post the list a week in advance??? That is like taking a kid to toy store and telling them they can't look or touch!!! REALLY?? Were you abused when you were a child or something?

I don't know about illegal, but a buddy of mine got a gun pulled on him by a convenience store clerk once.

I'd recommend going in with your helmet off and letting the clerk know what's up first.

I do that all the time. But the challenge does say "in" meaning inside the store.

And for the new #9.... :HeadScratch: Which one to go to.... Hmmmmmm...... Damn this tough to decide. Oh, and I think this one, we should all get together and make a party out of it. :D

Just thought of this, but this gives people who don't check the forums often a chance to be on equal footing as everyone

Alright, guess I knew what I meant, but you weren't in my head. All of the pumps had a sign that said keypad out of service. Debit/Credit card users must pay inside. So I went inside twice with my helmet on (never took it off).

I've done it before also, to just get my reciept when the pump is out of paper. But I haven't since someone told me it was illegal.

And dangit Miles. There are so many of these I can get right here by work, and your making me wait over a week to start.
