And with this post, we mark the final edition of From the Air on YesButNoButYes. We've spanned the globe several times over, each time asking you to identify places on Google Maps. I'm amazed as most people think Americans can't identify Canada on a map. So it makes the wannabe cartographer inside me happy that you guys have enjoyed these challenges so much. Because this is the last challenge, I'm upping the ante a little bit. Whoever identifies the most locations gets free AXE products. (Trust me, I've got a lot) And unless the package ends up like Leo's which got lost somewhere over the Caribbean, you'll have products that'll keep you clean and smelling good no matter where you travel.

Without further ado, I present you with the final From the Air Challenge.

5. Barter Island, AK Airport

said hijodelsol on May 18, 2010 3:26 PM.

4. Samarkand?

5. - lets see. It's got it's own airport. It looks to be on the beach, or the water somehow, in kind of a dry area. Figger it's some rich people's playpen.. Cabo San Lucas?

BTW, did we ever have Lake TitiCaca in one of these?....

You got to slap all these together and put them in a book and sell it as a novelty item in airports or something. That's how you get rich bro.

said E on May 18, 2010 3:28 PM.

Not Barter Island (but close)
Not Samarkand (not close)
