Road Trip Pic of the Week, 1/6: What is this?
If you know what this is and where it's located, you could win a prize in the CNET Road Trip Picture of the Week challenge.
Update (Wednesday, 7:38 a.m PST): Thanks to everyone for being patient for the answer while I was on vacation. The answer to the January 6 Picture of the Week--which 65 people got--is the replica Spanish galleon La Contessa, a mutant vehicle that for several years roamed the playa at the Burning Man festival, held in Nevada's Black Rock Desert. Thanks to all who played, and to everyone, please come back tomorrow for the January 13 challenge.
Is that a pirate ship? And a bunch of bicycles? Well, what is it? And where is it located?
If you know, you could win a prize in the CNET Road Trip Picture of the Week challenge.
If you have the answer, please e-mail it to me no later than 6 p.m. PT Friday (to daniel--dot--terdiman--at--cnet--dot--com, and PLEASE include "Picture of the Week" in the subject line). I'll choose a winner at random from among everyone who sends in the correct answer by the deadline. However, I'm going to be on vacation until January 11, so until then, I won't update this post and that person won't hear from me. Please forgive me if you don't hear from me if you're not a winner. I get dozens of responses for each challenge.
Also, I've turned off comments because some people would post the correct answers there. I hate to shut down discussion, but I want you to figure out the answer on your own.
One caveat: no individual can win more than two prizes.
The Road Trip Picture of the Week challenge takes place each Thursday, and the photos could come from anywhere, not just Road Trip 2010 locations. Plus, they might be related to stories I've written in the past. So, please have fun playing today, and then come back each Thursday.
For most of the summer, Geek Gestalt was on 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 drove 5,266 miles this summer looking for the best in technology, science, military, nature, aviation and more throughout the American Northeast. You can follow me on Twitter at @GreeterDan and @RoadTrip and find the project on Facebook.
