    10 for 10. Been there, done that. Wow! This is a cool lifestyle. I bet we are not the only ones, too.

    The alpha character answer for question #9 doesn’t match up. The correct answer is Route 66, but that is answer D, not answer A. At least, that’s the way it is on my computer.

    9 outof 10 – I missed the Eisenhower Tunnel and we’ve been through there several times.

    Richard, 3 wrong is still 70% right. That score is not bad. Thanks for posting your score and the input.

    David Hopkins, Sounds like you are well travelled. The Eisenhower Tunnel was a tough one. Thank you for your input.

    Pam Evans, Good score. I guess even though people have been to the Eisenhower Tunnel, does not mean they are aware of its elevation. Thanks for the input and for posting your score.

    Dennis n Debi, No, not easy, your just very smart. Thanks for posting your excellent score.

    I hate to be a smart a**, but based on your picture for question 6, I believe I’d really be in East St. Louis, Illinois.

    10 for 10, however, and I’ve only ever been to one of the correct answer places in my life. That would be St. Augustine. I guess I have some travelling to do, yet. Gotta get hopping.

  16. Avatar

    Larry Archambeau, Yes it would appear the photo is taken from the west, thereby possibly from Illinois. But, the question really tailors itself to “name the city”, which of course, is St. Louis. Thanks for pointing that out and for your participation.

    Ellen F, You must be real good in geography to get all 10 right. Congratulations. Thanks for your great effort and posting it.

    Missed two: Lake Ponchartrain (my head was telling me 7-mile bridge in the Keys), and hadn’t a clue about Death Valley’s elevation.

    7 out of ten with one very embarassing one. I have lived in Silverthorne, Colorado for twenty years, between the Eisonhower Tunnel and Vail Pass, and I got 10 wrong! For twenty years, I thought Vail Pass was higher. When we leave home, our motorhome knows it has a little work to do immediately before it can relax a little.

    I believe # 6 should be – East St. Louis. You’re looking west toward St. Louis.

    Lug_Nut

    Maggie, Yes I thought some would think of the 7 mile bridge in the Keys. Only missing two is very good. Congratulations on 80%. Thanks for sharing your score and for your input.

    BARRY ENGLEMAN, Well sometimes we don’t pay much attention to things near home. Seven is a good score anyway. Thanks for your input.

    Pam, You are well travelled. Great score. Thanks for posting and your input.

    Barbara Kirkhart, 90% is not too shabby. You fell for the Keys also. Good score, and thanks for posting it.

    Jim Headrick, Great going. I’m surprised so many did so well. Obviously you had a good chance as you have travelled to all. Thanks for participating and posting your great score.

    PeteB, The first and last were probably the toughest questions, so don’t feel bad. 80% is still a good score, especially considering you had not been to any.
    I’m glad you enjoyed the trivia. Thanks for the input.

    francis44, Good going eh! Another 100% score. Thanks for posting and for your input.

    Michael Wader, Again a good indicatioin that the first and the last question were probably the hardest. You still managed a good score. Glad you enjoyed it, and yes there will be more in the future. Thank you for your input and participation.

    Fun quiz. I take exception to substituting ‘smart’ for ‘knowledgeable’ — they are very different! (Response to D & D) However, it may apply to me after missing Utah, since I had to purchase wine out-of-state on four different trips to have a picnic dinner for my groups at Zion. 8 for 10 with that goof and the highest point.

    Moose&Squirrel East, Glad you liked this month trivia. 90% is real good. New Orleans is alive and well, and getting stronger. Thanks for posting your score and for your positive input.

    nushagak, Stop dreaming and get that RV rolling. Great score! Thanks for the participation and input.
