Neither the rules nor the mark state how much of the mark has to be see. In the first pic, I see a bike, a rider, a passenger and what looks like something that could very reasonably be 2 steam domes of the very locomotive seen in the second pic.

I vote that Trooper scored the mark!!

Lots of things. You've been watching me.
Will you show me all of them?
Sure.

Not if you have the right attitudes. Its having the right attitudes that's hard.

Ok, I'll put up these 2 pix of the "train" for approval... there is simply no place to get the bike close enough for the bike and the train other than this shot... the top of thetrain is just visiable through the tree tops... the second pix is of me next to the train to show what it looks like... I'm not trying to pull a fast one here, if the pix is not acceptable I'll withdraw the entry and try another attempt...

FYI... this is the Union Pacific "Big Boy" the largest steam locomotive built... its located in Omaha, Ne
Can't you get somebody to go hold those trees down out of the way? I'm not the judge here but I think you met the requirements IMHO. So what's the next mark?

Agreed! What's the next mark Trooper? I wanna play!

I want to thank the members of the academy for voting for me!!!

Ok the mark is a road sign with a bullet hole in it...

You CANNOTshoot bullet holes in the sign, or have someone elseshoot bulletholes in the sign for this pix....

Extra point for 5 or more holes in the sign

I am pretty sure that the bullet holes are added to the signs here in NC before they come from the DOT.

Awesomescore C Trooper and you get bonus points for a Steam Train.

I looked on the way to work and none of the traffic signs had any bullet holes.

My wife suggested I get some of these,



But I think that would be an issue with rule #5

Wouldn't you know it.... today without looking I found 2 other steam trains that would have made a better pix...

on top of that... the rear tire on the bike goes flat... just made it home in time...

OK C Trooper you've stumped us again, It's been five days and no bullet riddled signs.

I did try, We rode the bike to Daytona and back for the weekend and did not see a single sign with bullet holes (although I did kill a few braincells ).

So please call us a new simpler one.
Unless of course, someonetakes a shot at it before C Trooper calls the new one.

Not sure its so much a matter of a simpler one or not. I looked too but didn't find any. Opportunity to get out is more of the issue for me at the moment.
