WoO Christmas O-Quiz: Day 8 2012

A real classic for today! Can you guess which country this map is from? The WorldofO Christmas O-Quiz gives you one map sample each day from December 1st until December 24th. You get one point for each day you guess the correct country for the map sample – can you make it all the way to 24?

Fill out your name, e-mail address and your guess for the country below! For a given day, only answers given between 05:00 CET and 23:59 CET on that day will be counted in the overall score. That means that even if you fill out the form on a later day, your answer will not be counted… You are only allowed to answer ONCE each day!

Correct answer yesterday: Denmark!

Poland? Denmark? Poland? Denmark? Yes, I know it is not easy to differentiate those two – but Denmark had a 74-70 win. This thus proved to be the most difficult map so far!

Some of your comments:

  • No stones, small steep hills, many paths, controlled vegetation. Should be Denmark, but do not recognize the map. Probably a forrest near Silkeborg with limitet access do to an old angry forrest owner, who uses it for hunting once a year.. or maybe just an old map. [Yep, Jonas!]
  • Decent cartography done recently, extensive logging on moderate clay-hills but not in Czech or Slovakia, no cliffs or rocks, no depressions, no marshes, no red dots aka RouteGadget, no straight ride indicating big-scale forestry. I have already spent over 1 hour and still clueless. Blind luck: Poland [Nope, Tibor – wrong this time…]
  • I was 95% sure that it is Denmark – it just looks so Danish. But as I wanted to find the exact map it took quite a while. [Yep, Renars – you found it..]
  • Thats a typical work from the young Thierry! I know the handwriting style. Guess, no Im sure it’s from the JWOC 1996 in Denmark. [Denmark, yes. Thierry, no – this is Olle Kärner. But close!]
  • Finally Poland – sorroundings of so-called Tricity [Nope, Tadziu – sorry!]
  • Uh its Gdanks or Silkeborg terain I am not that sure, but I think it could be in Denmark. Hopefully [Guess: Denmark. Yep, Teichmann!]
  • Hard one, guessing between Denmark and Poland.. [Guess: Poland. Nope, wrong one there, Yannick]
  • This is hard. Looks old. Hungary came first to my mind. Or Denmark? I say Denmark. [Correct, Tim!]
  • Poland? Denmark? Poland? Denmark? Poland? Denmark? Poland? Denmark! [Guess: Denmark. Yes, Toon – you hit the jackpot today]
  • Okay. That wasn’t easy one :) but should be something continetial… I’d try to guess. Poland? [Nope, Vladyslav – wrong today]

Not all of you hit the jackpot on Day 7 – here is the overview over tips:
