It's not there, just like during the rally last year, but there is a prominent building behind it that will count, if in doubt just take an extra couple of pictures of your surrounding which will be sufficient.

Btw, How many do you have now Mike?? Enquiry minds want to know, :rolleyes: but remember this is not a race...it's just an adventure taking you places you never otherwise would have gone! Wully doesn't seem to be updating the scores as usual...Wully where are you?!? hope everything is okay...
I think its 57 so far and it will take the rest of the summer to finish. My wife has dementia and I have to arrange my trips around dates when my grandaughters can stay with her

I think Wully is ok he got a gold and a Dragon award in the Welsh.

I am on my travels Friday morning 3 days touring the south west hope to collect 11,21,31,41,51,61,71,81 and 91 as well as Round Britain rally landmarks and a few more of Grim Riders post box & giant ride landmarks. Just under 800 miles in 3 days nothing like the miles you guys achieve but then again I have medical problems and I ride a twist & go scooter.

I have great respect for Iron Butt riders who can do 1000 miles in 24 hours and even more for those who do 11000 miles in 11 days

I just wish I had found the IBA 20 years ago when I had my pan I would have had a go.

I can appreciate your constraints, I was the carer for my 96 yr old mum, so my trips/rally's were also dependant on family stepping up...which was few and far between! Now things have changed I'm on the bike almost every weekend.

I also wish I had found this mayhem sooner, still a rookie after 4 years! Good luck on your multiple tasks this weekend...safe travels

For info RAF Leuchars is now occupied by the Army. As I was taking my photos a man with a large gun ambled over and said there had been a policy change and no photos of things inside the wire. (He explained a certain part of the Brass' anatomy was twitching). I immediately thought of two unlucky chaps on the ET 2018 who were stopped whilst photographing a power station. I made my excuses and left, unlike the unfortunates in Eastern Europe, on the EuroTour......

So, if you don't hear from me on Monday, it means the twitching brass has had enough of us taking pics of his toys o_O
Which I believe we all pay for!!!
