Maybe its not as known as Maui, but the pictures give us the location. I found some You tube clips of Na poli caves and this http://www.whitneyzone.com/wz/ubbthr..._hike_Kauai_Ha and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=glSIjEtOMkI and http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-vid...=EN&id=5612980

Did you not read all the posts for the last 2 or 3 weeks from people asking other people NOT to post points here?

The overwhelming majority of photos have all come from shutterstock since week one. Photos found on other websites were probably bought/used from shutterstock as well. The fact that 2 or 3 (or more) exact photos have not been found (yet) on shutterstock this week is a real departure from previous weeks. We should keep this in mind for the last 2 weeks.

Uh yeah I did infoleech. And I also read YOUR post saying "I'm not following two of these buggers". So I kindly provided you with my answers. Good grief! LIGHTEN UP! Some of the negativity in this forum is ridiculous.It's a game people! If you do not want people to post point related stuff on this thread, then DON'T COME ON THIS THREAD TO ASK PEOPLE TO SEND YOU THEIR POINTS. Follow the other bugger and get your info there. Very hypocritical.

+1

Additionally, unless you are the weekly winner, it is very few points for the amount of work expended by all.

To the attitude-laden newbies on this thread: Lighten up, folks. Try to keep it in perspective. I hope now that you have found FlyerTalk you also will become involved in the other forums in addition to this PCR game thread. Welcome to FT.

Because he's trying to track what people have entered and the points they received in order to determine how PC is awarding points (i.e. abbreviations, etc.) And he apparently doesn't want to have to look in two locations for the info

spelunking???

Is that a common word in the US? Apparently it is what us Brits call potholing.

I am beginning to feel there is a bit of a US bias in these clues! TV programmes that we have never heard of, colloquial language!!!

Correct on all counts. The answers I have recieved for last 2 weeks have provided some great, nay, amazing insights.

And I think you're mistaking 'message' and 'post'. I don't want you to post points and answers, I'm not asking that. I want you to message me directly which you can do by clicking on my name, thus avoiding points/answers type posts in this thread.

Any reason to copy an answer from the day before? If not, since I already guessed Kauai, I'm going to start guessing wild things all over the place. Well, maybe not totally wild. Today was Maui...

Ah, ok. Didn't realize you could do that. Will do in the future - thanks for the info. ^
