I'm not sure if it's two or three eggs, I believe the Utah still lies there but I think the third one (Oklahoma) may have been raised. In any case we are on the USS Arizona memorial built over the still visible wreck, a very solemn experience. The USS Missouri is moored very close to it. I found Pearl Harbour a fascinating but melancholy place when you appreciate what happened there. Over to GregR.

Thanks Chaps.

Haven't been to pearl Harbour but dived a fair few WW2 wrecks in my time in Micronesia and PNG -both US and Japanese and it is a bit moving each time as you realise my bit of fun was many peoples horrific end.

Anyway back to the good old standby - The UK... where am I this time??

Well it’s time to move forward from the ancient stone circles to something more modern.

The UK again, where am I standing and what is the little hill across the valley?

I see that has come out upside down..I will try to rectify that.No idea how but....... :oops:

Let s see if this is better..

Seeing as we have had no guess's I'll drop a hint or 2

I have moved forward about 3000 years from the previous 2 stone circles and the hill across the valley is well known in England.

Edit: another day another day of nil guess's.

Massive hint time: Its not Hadrians Wall and the mountain is the biggest in the area. NW England. It NOT Hard folks.

You should be right with Scafell Pike - and I will be blowed! - we did not drop in on Hardknott Roman Fort - but that might just be it.
It was late in the day when I scared my daughter by driving over that pass.

Eggs is correct.

I said its "NOT hard" folks- Hardknott Fort built by the romans in the 2nd C AD as a back up to Hadrians wall. And yes that is Scafell across the Esk valley.

We actually drove past it on the way up as it is one the more "interesting" drives I have ever been on - mercifully beautiful day though. So focused on staying alive we missed it going up and only saw it after we turned around- and we were being taken there by locals!! Must be scrotally intimidating on a bad day.

So over to Eggs

Well Eggs

I think 3 days is long enough to ask for a hint..perhaps even GPS co-ordinates.

You're forgiven eggs :wink:. 70km on the Heysen sounds a lot more interesting than what I've been doing all week.

Staying in NZ and breaking the rules somewhat. Should be very easy though:
