Ryan’s GoogleEarthing World Tour Complete

Adriaan has won Ryan’s GoogleEarthing World Tour. Ryan will post the results in the comment field.

I don’t expect any new puzzles to be posted before the end of the month, although I might surprise myself and you by doing so. In the meantime, there are some unsolved puzzles to play with, so give them a whirl.

  1. copy/pasted from earlier.

    Allright! This is my first internet access in a week, I was hoping the last site would be found. It’s actually Lookout Mountain, the site of a Civil War battle. I’ll post the total results when I get back home, Adriaan and alan, please send your paypal address to

  2. As you can see it was found just a few hours after you left.
    By the way: does your family really live in Tennessee or was that just a hint (or both)?
    Anyway, I noticed it after I found the spot, so it didn’t help :-)

  3. Here is the final leaderboard

    Adriaan - 35
    Alan - 17
    Rogier - 12
    Deepblue - 8
    Michael Johnson - 2
    Kelly - 1

    I would like to commend everyone on their awesome work, I wish I knew all the secrets to finding these. I mean finding a town like Tamworth, NSW or Deadwood, SD is truly an exercise. Any advice? Anyways, the first place prize has been awarded, to a local children’s cancer charity, per Adriaan ’s kind request. I look forward to searching with you all on old and upcoming puzzles. Merry Christmas, Happy Haunaka, and a happy new year!

    PS. Yes I was actually visiting family in TN. My sister lives in Nashville and my parents are building a home outside the Great Smokies National Park. It was merely Ironic that the last unknown photo was also in TN.

    My ‘advice’:
    - First and foremost; enjoy the challenge.
    - Invest time in it, a lot of time :-)
    - Try to find clues in the picture: shadows, orientation (north, south etc.), color of the soil etc etc.

    For instance the Tamworth one (world tour #65):
    It was pretty clear by then that most of your puzzles were located in either North-America, Europe or Australia/New Zealand. The shadows led me to Australia. So I turned on the roads-layer and went searching along north-south running roads in brownish-red areas. It took about 45 minutes …
