Scooter Photo Scavenger Hunt!

First off? I am hoping that Eric or one of the other moderators will run this. (If not, I can do it, but I am not, in any way, anything official on this board & have only been a scooterist for a couple months so I would be happy to turn this over to one of our veterans) EDIT: Eric is cool with me coordinating this so I will
If anyone has any suggestions for photo subjects or on how to make this more fun, please post up or PM me.

What is it?
Every Friday a new photo subject will be posted in this thread & it will be your job to go get a photo of your scooter with that subject.

When is it?
It was started May 30th & hopefully will run it all summer, finishing up Labor Day weekend ? that will give us 14 photos to get (one per week) (If only 25 people participate, we should end up with over 300 photos!)

Who?
EVERYONE is encouraged to participate ? the more the better ? some subjects will be easy & some will be more difficult ? some might be impossible for some people ? but do your best & participate when you can. (I will try to do a subject that everyone can do with bonus points for additional features)
Dont worry if you didnt get in at the start... just jump in anytime!

Rules (so far? post up or PM me if you think we should change them)
-A new photo subject added every Friday. Participants will have until the following Thursday to post their pic.
-Only one photo may be submitted by each member for each week?s subject. (but if you get a better pic later in the week, you can edit your original post & REPLACE your original pic with the better one, as long as it is up by Thursday)
-Old photos you have laying around can NOT be used- they must be NEW photos taken the week the photo subject was posted (we will just have to trust each other, play nice)
-PhotoShop submissions will result in negative points Rolling Eyes
-Points may or may not be awarded (we can see how it goes & how competitive everyone wants to get with this) and points may vary each week with the difficulty of the photo subject.
Prize ? sure? if we can figure out a way to do that, but the real prize will be bragging rights & all the fun we all had all summer.

EDIT: good all summer - 10 BONUS POINTS for a photo of you getting a ticket (photo must include your scooter & a cop writing the ticket) Only one of these may be submitted per player. (thanks to kazoo for the suggestion)

Scooter Photo Scavenger Hunt Week One
May 30th-June 5th
Subject: Scooter with a Fire Truck

Lets start with an easy one that everyone should be able to get!

Points will be awarded as follows:
Your scooter with a Fire Truck = 1pt
+1 point for each additional Fire Truck in the photo
+1 point for each fireman in the photo
+1 point for the first (real) photo submitted
+5 points if the photo features a fire truck in use putting out something on fire (I do NOT recommend starting your neighbor’s house on fire just so you can get the 5 bonus points)
Remember – If you are going to ask firemen to pose with your scooter, you need to tell them the photo will be posted on the internet & have their permission to do so.

Please total your own points & include your total in your post with your photo.

We are off and running! Let’s see those pics of scooters with Fire Trucks
All submissions must be posted by JUNE 5th at midnight (in your own time zone)

First... make sure its not more than 600 or 700 pixels wide
Then click POST REPLY (like you just did)
scroll down... ther is a section called add an attachment"
click browse & find your photo on your PC
The click "Add Attachments"
Then click submit
that is the easy way... but you only have so much space on this forum so a lot of people post of photos on flickr & other sites & then just link to them (see Eric's post below)
http://www.photobucket.com seems to be a popular place to host photos to use in this board

Preferred way of posting an image:

You'll need to use a free (or other) image hosting service such as Flickr, Photobucket, even .Mac.

Link to an image stored on a publicly accessible web server, e.g. http://www.some-unknown-place.net/my-picture.gif. Image links must end with an acceptable image file extension: .gif, .jpg, .png. When posting an image hosted on Flickr, the URL will frequently end in "?v=0" or something similar. To post the image, just remove that bit from the URL so the name ends in ".jpg". You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible server) nor to images stored behind authentication mechanisms such as Hotmail or Yahoo mailboxes, password-protected sites, etc. To display the image use the BBCode [img] tag (if allowed). BBCode example:
[img]http://www.service.com/imagename.jpg[/img]

I went by the firehouse today while they where emptying the hoses (On my bicycle) I missed my golden opportunity. This is a very cool idea and it screams for a flickr group.

I already run the Buddy Flickr group. Maybe I can figure out how to incorporate this.

Someone could just make a modern buddy scavenger hunt group too. I was thinking when I read this that it was screaming for a flickr group.

Yeah... but since it's organized here, it would still be good to have the photos crossposted here. Whatever works!

I got a couple of photos today with two trucks, but the firemen were eating their supper so I didn't think it would be nice to suggest they all get up from the table to pose with Buddina Confused so I thought I would wait and see if I can snag a warm firebody or two later to post before the deadline!

I think this is great fun to have something to do like this each weekend. Thanks, and I can't wait to see what all the other scavenger items will be! Very Happy

Glad you are enjoying it so far.... go ahead and post up your pic from today & if you get a better one by Thursday, just edit your post & replace your pic (and point totals) with the new one.

No pics yet from me... However, on our ride today we passed an actual forest fire that had just started and while we were stopped at the gas station we saw a couple firetrucks pass by. I was thinking the whole time I should totally go back there and get that shot... BUT I was not the only person and it would've been inconsiderate, so I didn't. Rolling Eyes

What are the odds?!

ok... so you are considerate... but it COST YOU 5 POINTS!

Looking forward to your pics.

.... and something tells me the girls will have an easier time getting the firemen to pose with their scooters!

I think there may be some controversy in this picture... ie... do ambulances count? do fire CARS count? and do Fire Yukons count?

3 Fire Trucks, the one outside and 2 inside the doors,
2 "Trucks" Suburban and Yukon
1 Car
1 Ambulance

there was also a ladder truck on the street, but i was using my cell phone and it was the seattle waterfront so there were a ton of cars, and a fire boat behind the station but it wouldnt fit in the picture either.... Confused

Ok.. I say the ambulance does not (its an ambulance not a fire truck)
The car does not (not a truck)
but the subruban & yukon do so thats 5 points
does that work for you?
(although I am having a hard time seeing the other truck inside... we will give you the benifit of the doubt)
Nice Entry!

Okay, here is my photo! Very Happy I have three trucks in here and six firemen. . .unless you count the little fireperson in the big firejacket. Laughing So that is nine points (or ten with the little firewoman Wink )

We had to take this far enough away to capture all three trucks, but, yes, they are all smiling with Buddina. Smile My husband took a nice close up with the firemen, Buddina, and me, but you can't see all three trucks so this is my one to post, and the other one is my souvenir.

And thanks again! What a fun thing to do this weekend while we were riding.

Well... I doubt the little girl is a certified firefighter so we cant count her... so that is 9 points and you are tied for 1st place!
Nice job

Well... hopefully some more people will play along & we will have 13 more weeks of this... so you can join in as soon as you get it (hopefully soon)

If anyone has suggestions for photo subjects for the scavenger hunt, please PM me -

I do have a few more ideas... but not 13 more!

I just bought my Buddy today after researching it on this post. There's a lot of useful information here!

My Buddy only has 13 miles on her, so we're getting acquainted today.

Anyway, here's my entry unless I can find a better photo-opp before Thursday.

Two engines (ones pointed out the other side of the station) and two firemen. 4 points?

Someone forgot to remove the vinyl on their tires. Wink

They come with blue plastic to protect the white wall area, you have to peel them off.

Aargh! After posting my picture, I screwed up and left my camera on my desk when I went for my first ride with my new scooter (guess I was just too excited to remember the camera). And wouldn't you know it - I came across a 12 point photo-opp. Two fire engines and ten firemen responding to an emergency (car accident - not a fire - it didn't look like anyone was severely injured, though......). I positioned my scooter but when I went for the camera...... it wasn't there..... Crying or Very sad

Yep, those are bluewalls! My scooter got her first look at the world today and hasn't even had her first bath. Don't worry though, it rained at the end of the ride and we both got a bath - her blue walls are very white now....... Very Happy

Only one day left to get in your pics of your scooter with a fire truck!
(this week's subject will be closed Thursday at midnight & a new subject will be posted up Friday)

Glad people are enjoying this so far - hope more people come and play with us next week.

Well, it's all downhill from here for me, I guess.



(That would be three fire trucks, including the eighty-six-year-old water tower. And does it count if a firefighter is *taking* the picture?)

Here's my contribution. That is my lab mate in the pic. Four firemen + 2 firetrucks = 6 points. For what it's worth, the very nice firemen offered to start a trashcan fire to up our points... Shocked lol
Extra points for the aerial response unit (truck on the left)??

...but my arms aren't long enough, and there's no timer on my camera phone Crying or Very sad Yes, the water tower is the old one. The scooter is inside because I was using the antique piece as a table while I put the rear rack on it today.
