I thought for sure someone would get this as I was waiting to upload my video. You can't stop on the bridge so I took a video Leaving Sacramento at about 50 and entering at about 2:00. Pop.418,000 elevation 25ft. Next is a twofer the first one is almost impossible but I saw one this week. A bookmobile if you get this one I will send you a prize. The next one is a waterfall.

I happened to see a bookmobile last week. First time in about fifty years so I did not want to hold up the hunt. You are right if you get the waterfall pick a new target if you get the bookmobile you get a prize and it is a pretty good one.

I am passing on the waterfall as there is one up the street. Trying to catch the Bookmobile. Has anyone else noticed the little free libraries "Take a Book Leave a Book" little house's on a pole. They are popping up in neighborhoods all over.

We've had them around here for years. That would make a good future challenge.

So is the bookmobile prize going to continue to stand even after the waterfall target is accomplished? I kind of like the prize idea. We could come up with a list of 5 or so near impossible targets and offer a little something for each. Where would the funds come from though? It wouldn't be right to ask one person to buy the prizes and ship them. Any ideas?

I've given away two prizes so far for various things. I think they were very happy with them. On this one if they get the waterfall first they pick a target if they get the bookmobile first they get to pick a target and get a prize. If someone gets the waterfall first I will still give a prize for the bookmobile but they won't get to pick a target. Here is one of the prizes but the new one is VStar related.

I got one of the prizes last year and it was really awesome to win it! I’d be willing to send in some funds with Venmo or Apple Pay if someone wants to be the prize keeper.

I think so. No water falls or bookmobiles in Houston. So I'm waiting for the next one.

Bookmobile gets you a prize. Waterfall works also but no prize.

Well, you have the Gerald D. HInes Waterwall fairly close, if you want to brave the traffic around the Galleria. Not for me....too chicken.
I don't mind the ride, and thought about it, but it's man-made. Might be wrong but thought the intent was a natural one. If fake one is ok, I'll get my water hose out. :LOL:
