I got 8597. I spent too long on the first round since I didn't notice there was a time limit.

Haven't played GeoGuessr in a while; it's cool to see all the changes they've made.

I set the time limit so people couldn't just Google the answer. You can change your display name under settings if you don't want what you have displayed.

Time limit's a good idea. I just didn't think about there being one, since I don't think it was an option when it first came out (which is when I last played).

I messed up. I didn't realize you could look around and move until the last one. Don't think I did too bad considering.

I am noticing that Canada/United States are the hardest ones because they are both large and similar. My strategy of looking for languages, roads, car types, and signs doesn't work there. I never think to guess Canada and end up losing a lot of points.

The UK is like the easiest place in the world because of the direction the cars go and the miles on the European signs.

I always find Romania the easiest because of the very specific style of telephone/powerline poles they uses. Bulgaria might use them as well, but I know Romania does.

There's times where they put you in a spot with no signs or other identifiers.

There's always some identifiers to at least give a little hint. Look at how mountainous your surroundings are, what the vegetation looks like, and what the people look like.

I'd think someone with your name would know how to identify trees.
