Loading dock with Graffiti

Team: Spokane
Member: Marcia
Location: Three blocks from downtown Coeur d'Alene

We stumbled across this old - do you see the clues? - warehouse because we had to park out in the dirt behind the local ballpark to go to Ft. Sherman. All the other parking places around the North Idaho Community College require a permit. Marcia was a bit leery of the steps, but she bravely got up there. 

Building with 15 or More Steps

Member: Melissa
Location: University of the Cumberlands, Williamsburg, KY
The Charles P. Smiddy learning resource center on campus.  17 Steps to get to the Library.  Melissa frequents this building during the school year.  Click here if you'd like to take a "Virtual Walking Tour"...It really is a beautiful Campus!  Melissa lives in "Harth Hall"

Relocated, but we went for Rustic

Team: Spokane
Member: Marcia
Location: Ft. Sherman, ID

Fort Sherman is a remnant of a historic fort established by General Sherman of Civil War fame in what is now the city of Coeur d'Alene. It was relocated from the banks of the river to this little spot in the middle of North Idaho Community College.

The outhouse was originally located down by the Spokane River, which flows out of Coeur d'Alene Lake. Posted in the hopes of earning a higher rating for a true pioneer structure. I think Marcia is checking the roof for leaks.

Workin' at the Car Wash... Yeah!

team: Young
member: Chris
location: San Jose, CA
item: gas station adapted for different use

Here's Chris waiting for his car to get steam cleaned and detailed... did you read about the stupid truck driver who didn't cap his load of recycled cooking oil/grease in Campbell?  Created quiet the mess on Campbell Avenue one morning - super smelly too!  So what's a guy to do when he's got a brand new ride but get it cleaned up, on that truckers dime!

This is our favorite place to take our cars for that special treatment! It's right on the corner of Coleman and West Taylor.  You gotta get there early on the weekend!  Lots of busy workers!
