Sunday is the first day of November which means that we will only have 61 days left to finish taking photos the 2015 Motoring Challenge. Right now our point total meets the goal of 150 that I set for us this year back in January, but we will probably get a bunch more.
We have all available 15 counties and all the states we are going to get at 22. But we have 5 city letters left (A, J, K, M & R) that we will more than likely get. We need two more Car Shows and a “Famous Work of Architecture” for 4 more points. These four are problematic because the only famous architecture we can come up with that is close by is Rainbow Row in Charleston and with all the leftover flooding from the big rains of a couple weeks ago it is hard to travel in the SC Lowcountry. Our easy Go-To car show is the Augusta Cars & Coffee and there are only two left and we’ll be out of town for one of them.
There are still 15 points left up for grabs in the Destination category and we’ll probably get at least 8 of them. The biggest loss is “Above 8,000 Feet” which is worth 4 points and there is nothing close to that east of the Rockies. I wonder if I could get partial credit (3.3) for getting the highest point available over on this side of the country, Mount Mitchell at 6,683 ft?
We’ll be very pleased with anywhere over 160 points for sure.
I’ve participated in several different Photo Memes on the Internet (Mirror Project, Photo Friday, Enchanted Ceiling, etc.), but here is one I don’t think I’m going to try: Nutscapes. Yikes! I wonder if I submitted one as a Sneak Peek for the Motoring Challenge would I get points or lose some…
The Emperor got a quick bath tonight to wash off any orange over-spray from when I painted the Halloween Pumpkin Mask in the corner of the garage last night.
