Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

We didn't need the hint that its in South America. It couldnt be the USA or Australia because theres no signs: Use Hand Rails, or Climbing Rails is Dangerous! Don't JUMP! In Australia: No Camping! No Lighting Fires! NO BBQs! DO NOT ENJOY YOURSELF!

And the boat has no state or federal registration...

You are correct. But is not Paraguay, is Uruguay, actually the name of the country is "Republica Oriental del Uruguay" (Eastern Republic of Uruguay), wich is a beautiful river we try to share with our neigbhors Argentina.

Your turn!

Yes we do BBQ in the forest, and do not have signs limiting us, because we can not afford it, and neither enjoy ourselves, A small advice, if you ever need to refuel down here, don't stop in Uruguay, you will get regular Diesel for $ 8.36 a gallon. We do have registration for boats, only national registration, but we welcome foreing boats for the time they want to stay, but have to pay taxes after 9 months of being around, a short trip to Buenos Aires solves that issue.
Also, we must render exams to get boats drivers license, and renew it after 10 years.

regards. djl

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

LakeMi .... no no no. You have to be the first one to identify the previous location before you can offer up your own candidate.

So we are waiting on DonJuanLuis to confirm LaurenceU is correct .... which he certainly seems to be.
