My closest was 343.552 km - I went for New Mexico instead of my second choice Texas.
It's fun for a geography buff.

OKay - second game, my closest was 210.378 km without help (Northern Territory). But with Googling, I got within 0.12 km (Newport, Oregon). Funny, I got two roads in Botswana when I guessed Kenya.

Great share Mark. GEOTRACKER is a similar game for Apple format.

Slowly getting better.... up to 12353 points this time.

Fabulous game, I'll have a hard time tearing myself away from this one.

13429 without any help/cheating or even much searching for clues. I really need to turn this off soon LOL

i came with 1.5k of one spot, they gave me a sign that had the town name, lol, of the others they threw me in the middle of no mans land, no signs, nothing to distinguish what continent i was on, i may as well have been in the desert, in fact i think i was at one point.

Oh yeah, one of mine landed me on an ice road in the middle of Alaska.

I got one on the end of a pier in Hawaii (9 m). I've had a few repeats, too.

Thats awesome...damn now I have to go waste more time beating this :)

The first person to zero meters gets a free iPod.

Maybe.

The remote version, for the apple ap store is called "geopro" its timed, and its pretty damned fun as well.

<sigh> all the cool stuff is blocked. All i get is "Blocked by Websense." Guess that should be my hint to get back to work, eh?

32,392 points - First try. Took about an hour though.

Challenge me if you dare - I was 15 meters away twice, and 9 meters away once - so there's some chance to beat me, but the other two were 1 meter away, and I think that's about as good as you can do.

As a hint sheet for those who want to try to beat me:

1. Look for a trailhead
2. An old signpost points the way
3. A real challenge, look for road sign with a distance of 19km to a town - then use this radius to locate intersection
4. Biggest challenge - note road signs, use shapes and numbers/letters to find state, then find roadsign with town name. Explore the area along known road number, and locate appropriate intersection.
5. A town commons posting board is your key here
