A very, very easy one taking these hints:




Hint 1: Not far from Amsterdam

Hint 2: Look at the entire web page...

Yeah... it is at South Africa (near the town of Amsterdam) and close to the border with Swaziland.

And, the hint about the entire web page... yesterday the banner was the city of Johanesburg. It was a way to say.... look near there

Roadmarkings were enough to suspect the South-African region of East-Transvaal (Mpumalanga), where the town of Amsterdam is located. With GMaps the forest logging region east of Amsterdam was quite easy to find.

The roadmarkings also reveal this is not for instance, Amsterdam, New York. American road markings have yellow markings to divide driving directions, not shoulders.

Absolutely... now the exact location.

(Shouldn't be too difficult for someone watching the picture closely, there's an important clue visible...)

It's the Berlinka, where the S6 branches off to the north.

I'm trying to post a new picture but I don't seem to be able to. The FAQs say something about a "Manage attachments" button below the message box when making a new post, but I don't see it. Also at the very bottom of the page, I have a box called "Posting rules" , and on the third line its says " You may not post attachments." Any idea why? Any advice?

Hi Flyboy88,

I get that last message too but I can still post pictures. You will need an account with Photobucket or Imageshack etc. in case you don't have one. I use paintbrush when setting up a photo before I upload it.

Also, remember to label your pictures with your own code or gobblety-gook when saving (not location of picture); I've been caught out this way.

cheers
