I managed to post a steeple, a roadside find, and a silo in my previous two posts, but those posts weren’t seriously dedicated to scavenger hunting. I was distracted by MY Town’s two visitors. The day before they arrived and today were different. I really did get down to the business of serious scavenging. I had pretty good success too. And I think I got at least part of my bike in every one of them.

Propane Tanks

Two Large Machines (This road construction is the reason I had to lead Scott and Rocky on my tricky detour yesterday.)

Red Roof (Maybe it’s closer to orange. I’ll find another one if I get too many complaints.)

Discarded Tire(s)

Artistically Painted Fire Hydrant

Out-of-State License Plate (I figured a picture of a Wisconsin plate would be like cheating. Wisconsin is only about five miles from MY Town and Wisconsinites flee that state like rats on a sinking ship. I don’t blame them.)

Just in case you couldn’t read the Florida plate, I’ve included another one.

Smoke Stack

Railroad Crossing

Umbrellas (Nobody said the umbrellas had to be opened up.)

Ladder (going up the side of the scaffolding)


Porch Swing and a Porch

Travel Trailer

Dots or Spots (Many variations in one picture: A spotted cow. Polka DOT dairy. And a U.S. Department of Transportation [DOT] number.)

I’m right on track to complete this checklist in the next few days. Two of the three un-checked items might be pretty difficult. I think I should probably find another porch swing since my entry wasn’t actually on a porch. I also feel a little guilty about the “red” roof, the questionably interesting road find, and the not-so-artistic fire hydrant. I’ll probably have to redo those items as well.

    Wow! You got right with it! Excellent series of photos!
    As to the red roof, as a retired Geographer (of sorts) I have lots of latitude. 🙂
    Here is a hint for a reel lawn mower — they are used pretty much exclusively on golf courses.
    I have yet to find a feather as you suggested, and with all the birds around here, one might think . . . . . . (I do have a fudge factor in mind)

    I see you are an expert on colors, and a stickler – deformation professionelle I guess. I have always called all red-orange roofs red.

    I am so far behind I should probably wait until everyone has lapped me, so it looks like I’m right in the middle of the peloton….
