Road Trip Challenge

#1 Post by vintagehamiltons » Mon Jul 15, 2019 6:56 pm

Massillon, Ohio to The Villages, Florida
This was fun and kept me alert. We missed at least a dozen because my passenger wasn't ready to shoot or there was only one sign and saw it too late to shoot. I'll do better next trip. I need to brush up on ladies models, as I think I saw many, but wasn't sure.

31 in 971 miles, so 1 every 31.3 miles

Excellent idea. You'll have to work on the geometrics. Square should be easy. Cushion, maybe a furniture billboard. Barrel, barrel will be tough. Oval very tough. Tonneau...that will be the coup de grace.

I will doing a trip from Wyoming to the east coast in Oct and I will see what I can come up with. I know I’ve seen Vega Texas before and been to Hamilton Montana.

Great post and very clever.
