The bus ride game!!

Alright folks, there seem to be several of us driving these buses around these days. Lets get a proper ride game going. Chris and I have gotten the "bus at starbucks" thing going, and it dawned on me we could be having a lot of fun playing this game and we'll get to see pics of us bus folk in action!!!



It goes like this-
A challenge is put forth from the person who has previously won the last challenge. First one to get a pic posted wins the challenge.
Since I started it and have played before on the Honda Ruckus forum, I'll be the "judge" for now.
I'll just use the Ruckus rules and substitute buses for scooters.

Its simple really, someone posts a challenge, someone else completes it then posts a challenge of their own.

RULES


• Take a pic of your bus to satisfy the current specific challenge.
* If it says a pic in front of a sign with "No Motorized Vehicles" one that just says "No Vehicles" will NOT work.
* If it says a pic in a drive thru, a McDonald's will work as well as a bank because the poster didn't specify it.

• Post a SPECIFIC next challenge. Make it something accomplishable NOT something ridiculous. That will slow down the game for everyone. The idea is to go for a ride, take a picture, post it and move on not stage a performance art piece or taunt your local police.

with in your post for entry....please state what the current challenge is that you are submitting for

• Remember this is a worldwide game. Make your challenge something the majority of members, regardless of location, can accomplish so we get international participation as well. It's cool that a guy from Scotland can go get a challenge from a guy in Phoenix, AZ and we should promote that type of play.

• There will be disagreements about whether challenges have been met or were specific enough. The original poster has the first right to determine whether his/her challenge has been met. If we cannot come to a logical conclusion by that method the originator of the game (EastCoastCB) is final referee. In the unlikely event we cannot get a timely judgement by referee, a vote by three players can be made to wait for "judgement" by referee or "play on".

• In the event a challenge has stalled the game, 36 hours will be the limit of it's duration. After that time limit the person who suggested it can either do it themselves or suggest a new next challenge. If they don't reply in 12 hours then the previous winner gets to pick the new next challenge.

• Archived/Old photos CANNOT be used. After the challenge has been posted you have to go out and get a NEW photo to satisfy it. This is CRUCIAL for the integrity of the game!

It's pretty simple. Anyone participating in this thread automatically agrees to these rules and must abide by them regardless of their personal opinion. Anyone who cannot abide by them may feel free to withdraw from the game.



Who's ready???

Sorry- gotta be a beer SIGN, not a beer!

Not trying to be TOO picky, but we gotta have some structure and keep it legit. Very valid attempt but I'm gonna have to insist on an actual sign. Can be a neon sign at a bar or restaurant, or convenience store. We'll even accept a beer truck's lettering as signage due to the size!
But you didn't "lose" cause we now have one bus pic, even if it didn't meet the challlenge.
Play on folks!!!! Bonus points for a non-domestic beer sign!

If this was a challenge to take a pic in front of a church I am in the right place. Beer, not so much.
