Tillerman's quizzes are getting tougher than Mitch's.
The answer is in plain sight.Just like my last "Where am I?" quiz.
Singapore? My glasses aren't strong enough to make out indistinct features. Now, if they were distinct.....
One of the nuclear test atolls?
Oops my mistake. Not the Singapore one. The post with the post. And the shells.
Not a nuclear test atoll but you are thinking on the right lines.
The Scottish island of Gruinard that they seeded with Anthrax?Apparently its been decontaminated, but I'm not volunteering to test it.
That's a great guess. But wrong.The reason why you can't go there, as you and Luke have both guessed, is because there's some dangerous stuff there.Another clue: this place is in the United States. Actually in one of the lower 48 states.
Plum Island, NY
That's some very dark water. It must be far north in the lower 48?
Three Mile Island
No Man's Land Island, Massachusetts. It's a former bombing range and is now a wildlife refuge. The indistinct feature is the former runway.
Ding Ding Ding. Mitch has it.As I said, it was in plain sight. I mentioned in a nearby post that Scout, the robot boat, looked like it was heading directly towards this island.The spelling of the island's name is a little confused. Wikipedia seems to think that the most plausible explanation for the name's origin is that the island was probably named "Nomans Land" after a Martha's Vineyard Wampanoag sachem, Tequenoman, who had jurisdiction over the island when the English came in the early 17th century: a corruption of "TequeNoman's Land."
I was guessing Plum too.
