That is fun! I am, at least getting the right part of the world. My closest so far is 88km.

I keep getting nondescript deserts. I can't tell the difference between rural Arizona and rural Australia...

I think it's just the accent :-)

My record is 7km. Possibly something to do with the fact that there was a sign for the Saratoga Medical Centre.

0.99km. There was a lovely wooden sign saying "Port Hardy".

I dread to think what they teach there...

You're just a shameless cheat, AEN. ;)

I'm impressed with myself just for getting the right continent every time. :P

Shameless describes my cheating pretty accurately.

I'm on a roll for my all time high score. With plenty of cheating... Except it seems to have hung on me.

I had a string of ones I could work out. A sign with the town name in Canada, a sign outside a university in the US, a bridge I have actually driven over in South Africa, a station in Sweden and an intersection with sign boards in Brazil.

And yes, I googled three of the names to find the towns accurately, but I finished with 32 107 points. I can now retire...

OK, now I really will retire - I just got the gate into the Kruger National Park which is about two hundred metres from the gate to the army camp where I did my national service basic training. No googling or cheating whatsoever, and 0.061km from the spot.

Managed to get a .002 km error for a 25,281 final score. Put me right in the middle of a couple popular casinos in Vegas!
