Road Trip Pic of the Day, 6/10: What is this?

Know your conveyor belts? If so, you could win a prize in the Road Trip Picture of the Day challenge.

Update (Friday, 7:32 a.m.): The correct answer--which 12 people got--is UPS' Worldport facility in Louisville, Kentucky. Thanks for playing and please try again Friday.

Do you know your conveyor belts? Are you a manufacturing geek? Then you might have the knowledge that could win you a prize in today's Road Trip Picture of the Day challenge.

Maybe you recognize what's in this picture from a visit of your own. Or perhaps you're a whiz with search terms. Or possibly you recall seeing this picture when I published it as part of one of my previous Road Trips. Either way, I'd love to hear from you if you have an idea of what this is, and where it's located.

As always, I'm looking for the correct answer to those questions, and at the end of the day, I'll pick a winner at random from among those who e-mailed them to me (at daniel--dot--terdiman--at--cnet--dot--com using the phrase "Picture of the Day" in the subject line). And please understand if you don't hear back from me if you don't win. I get dozens of responses.

One caveat: No individual can win more than two prizes. But at the end of the trip, I'll be drawing a name from among all the daily challenge winners and giving out something a little more substantial to that person.

On June 24, Geek Gestalt will kick off Road Trip 2010. After driving more than 18,000 miles in the Rocky Mountains, the Pacific Northwest, the Southwest and the Southeast over the last four years, I'll be looking for the best in technology, science, military, nature, aviation and more throughout the American northeast. If you have a suggestion for someplace to visit, drop me a line. In the meantime, you can follow my preparations for the project on Twitter @GreeterDan and @RoadTrip.
