Other stops on the journey, filmed in November and December, include Japan and tiny Liechtenstein, a first-time destination, where racers had to measure the precise length of the country on mopeds.


And yes, that is the correct task in Liechtenstein. As a matter of fact, it is the ONLY task in Liechtenstein. :lol:
Haha, they released a lot; more than you would. :lol:

Nice find on the video by RealityFreakWill!

Great post apskip!!!!

There is a difference between physical geography and social geography. I never understood why the Eurasia people always leave out India.....since it was its own continent once. Shouldn't it be Indoeurasia or maybe Eurasiaindo......oh well.

Soon (in earth time, not human time) the east African rift will split off about 20% of the continent......wonder what it will be called then?

The International Olympic Committee only recognizes 5 continents too.......the reason there are only 5 rings in the Olympic Flag.

I think we REALLY need for Feb 20th to hurry up and get here!!!!   :meow:

apskip, im sorry if i offended you in any way

Dr. Rox I agree with to you as well. If Europe is a continent then why isnt the Indian subcontinent a continent itself?

I say there is no Europ, because Georgia, armenia are considered a part of "Europe" but there neighbours such as Iran are in asia. They are all connected togther and shou.d be on continent.


Anyway, what is a moped? :duno:

I did a bit of research before I posted the question, and that is waht came up. I was in disbelief, because I was thinking how do you measure with motorcycles?

In the intial post, I believe they are referring to riding a moped for that certain length rather than using them as a unit of measurement.

However even with bikes you can attach an odometer system.

RealityTVisthe Best,

It's no harm, no foul so you did not offend me. You have a right to your point of view, but it is not the only valid point of view on the number of continents.

If it really is Qantas out of LAX, then that sets a new record, half-again as long as the drive out of Pahrump (TAR2).

I can drill it down a little bit: the permit (bottom of page) lists Whitewater Canyon as the spot.

Whitewater Canyon, Riverside Co. T3S, R3E, Section 12, SW1/4

Actually, that's pretty specific if you ask me.
Quote
T3S, R3E, Section 12, SW1/4
is an exact location referencing a legal subdivision map for that area. If I understand the references T=Township (3 S(outh?)), R=Range (3 E(ast?)) Section 12, in the SouthWest 1/4 (one-quarter).

Couldn't say. There are special maps (usually done by surveyors) that are used as the basis for the legal description of land for property deeds and other land records. What that description was from tells me that the Bureau of Land Management (U.S. Department of the Interior) uses the legal descriptions of locations for identifying "projects."

One would need to look at a copy of the surveyor's maps that are probably on file with Riverside County in order to pin down the exact plot of land. BLM may also have such maps on file, but I don't want to say that for a fact since I've never had to look for a location that way.

Here's an online BLM map and this explains the co-ordinates. If I'm reading it correctly (big if), T3S R3E Section 12 SW 1/4 would put production in the vicinity of Painted Hills Rd. It's next to the I10, but you can't see the highway in the promo. ???

Interestingly, Slowhatch's location is in the same area (almost) as where I was finding matching views:

(more to follow)

The GE view matches this shot for likely Sun angle and slope.  It gets better...

The key to match are these old style wind machine towers made like radio towers.  There are not very many of them in the farm.

The old style towers appear in the promo shot her in the upper right:

I think you guys are very close. I am trying to find the name of that particular quadrangle map with those Township/Range coordinates. They are made by the USGS.....not many of them are online. They want you to buy them. The BLM uses the USGS maps..

Another thing that connects are these characteristic double pole transmission lines:

They are few in number on the farm.  But we have some in our promo of the startline.
