In a list darling, so it doesn't count. Otherwise anyone could come with a list of the 250 independent countries and dependent territories of the world, and it would be easy to guess any picture.

EDIT: actually it was Piotrek_409 who had proposed it in a list. You did not propose it, you simply assumed it was eliminated due to the wrong elimination list.

PS: I suspect some people make erroneous elimination lists to confuse other people and win the prize for themselves.

The mystery road was indeed in New Caledonia. I don't have the exact location, but from the look of it it's the dry western coast of New Caledonia, where white settlers (the "broussards") raise cattle.

Wow, this is the greatest day in my life, I'm deeply touched...
Now where are my prize money?

I thought many people would have recognized the typical French road markings and French electricity poles earlier...

@ElviS77: This game is about guessing a road, so it seems logical for the person who posts the picture to answer proposals of places (one or two places per message, not lists) and not to comment on elimination lists. Elimination lists are the responsability of those who make them. It's not complicated for each person to read the thread and see which country or region has been eliminated, and which hasn't.
If you want to annoy as many people as possible, please feel free to do so. I do not dispute the fact that the lists are the responsibility of those making them, but when the number of wrong guesses approaches 50, I don't think all that many people can be bothered to read every single post. I sure as hell can't, and since this isn't a competition of any importance, but something supposedly funny, I stand by my suggested hint guidelines. But it is entirely up to the one providing the mystery road, of course...

Here's another mystery road. Let's see if you can guess faster this time (only one or two proposals per message, no lists).
