Just a thought , if anyone needs ADV Scotland cool stickers for the quest , or just to look cool  8)
while promoting and helping fund the forum . see the sticker sales category here.

All Profits (about £1 per sticker) go in the pot for hosting etc .

Should add in additional points for furthest distance travelled to get a quest photo, maybe something for next year  8)

Too complicated IMHO. Keep it simple. For instance I got several quests in Lanzarote last year, would they be included? I also got one in Dunstable, one in Humberside, one in County Durham etc.

Would the mileage be gauged separately, or included as one trip? Or what if the quest item was included in an existing trip that was to be made anyway?

Too complicated...

It's hard enough to get all 100 anyway!

Mountie,  I was just thinking something like everyone posts the longest distance from their home to one of their pics. 

Example: So say the quest was Lands End, then whoever lives furthest north and gets the pic wins a "side competition".  But say the quest, was a "stone wall" that can be seen anywhere, and someone rode from central belt to say, south of Italy, and got that pic, then they've travelled furthest and wins the side competition.

My thinking is that it's just an added optional challenge in addition to the overall quest to get people going further afield and seeing more.  Doesn't have to be too complicated, but I understand your point.  Just an extra bit of fun.

Is an "Adventure Park" a Theme Park?  Upon doing a Google search they are categorised together.

Same question for, Is a "Wildlife Park" a Zoo?

Theme park is your standard "Take your screaming brats to terrorize to staff and throw up on the rides while you hide out in the adults club area"  park.

Zoo is a Zoo...

Ok. To avoid doubt, and to avoid wasting fuel, is Landmark at Carrbridge a Theme Park? Is an 'amusement park' like Codonas in Aberdeen a theme park? Because it is officially listed as an amusement park. And you are saying there is only one zoo in Scotland, yes? Google zoo in Scotland and wildlife parks are included. No point getting a pic if it doesn't count.
