Clue 2 was something like this:

City of angels is in this side of the US.

Turned out you have to use the link provided in social media and it will work.

I finally got 0 km, but it doesn't say meters :-[ :lol

As I said before I've encountered a glitch when I was able to do an extra try. I hope it doesn't count as the rules violation, because seems like anything goes.

Also, since you can use different names, different emails and possibly different IPs, you theoretically can have an infinite amount of attempts in finding the 0km spot.

I wonder how it all could be filtered. They should have use a some kind of authentication. At least have a e-mail confirmation or something.

Hmm.. I was 3km away.. so i made the radius of 3km and and selected one end of the road... now says 4km away? Is there some stupid road that's barely visible even with zoom or what is this shit?

The only road looking anything like the cover picture is this road... But heading 3km in 1 of 2 possible directions gives me only 4km away instead of 6km?

And now 5km wrong from the other side... haha, i will give up this shit soon :( makes no sense no more, the only "road" is totally wrong and still the center of my current radius is the closest, but going to the sides just increase the distance, there are no working options up and down on the map.....

Haha i found it. Was actually looking at that road earlier but never thought of it until now. Fingers crossed then to be one of X tens of thousands of users who win :)

The main question is how they will decide the winner. Is this going to be how close you was physically putting the mark or simply how many kilometres you were off? If the second, I recon hundreds of winners by the end of this competition. Pity they don't have a satellite map there.

Same here.... 3km and I move a bit and I am 3km again... or 7km... what the ****?
I wonder where is the road you talk about !
It seems that the map doesn't show all  :(

Yesterday's attempt didn't saved unfortunately (guess the same bug Quizzy mentioned). So I tried again and now hit the 0km spot  :)

I became obsessed finding it, and finally did ;)
But I must say some of the roads I passed was more similar to the cover than this so I think you are right about that this is where "they think" it was shot.

I'm down to 18 km away. Going around all over, seems almost more difficult the closer you get!

Take some printscreens and mark your attempts if you are not doing that already... helped me a lot and you get a clear picture on where you should head next :)

Where I'm at there aren't many other roads in the radius. I need to take a break and get back to it tomorrow.
