    The one in lithuania i looked around, wound up on the border between belarus and lithuania, looked up the flag, realized where i was, that wasn't too hard.

    The one in california i thought I was in TN, its rural as hell, I travelled probably 15 miles down a dirt road before I saw a paved road, which was Adopted by some obscure organization that had a website, letting me know i was in california.

    The Australia one was easy, right outside a very uniquely named police station.

    edit: without cheating I got like 12k, haha.

    After realizing I was digital driving looking for a landmark to guide me in the right direction I stopped doing that and gave myself a 360 degree view and then I have to guess, google is allowed. I find it more interesting than virtual lost driver. Things I learned, if the dirt is red or orange there is a good chance you are in Australia. If you think it could be the U.S. but something just doesn't look right chances are it is in Australia. If there is a statue of a stereotypical U.S. version American Indian you are in South America. If you are somewhere with no roads you are in Africa.

    I was doing same... no cheating with moving viewpoint, only zooming and looking different directions allowed. No googling as it would be too easy if there is some names visible. Best I got was like 12k points.

    Often best tip was what side of road cars were driving, left side meaning pretty much Australia/NZ etc. Otherwise sometimes really hard to even know what continent site is as grass and trees can look really same in NZ/Canada etc.

    Just as a heads up, red dirt and eucalyptus trees are no guarantee you're in Australia. That shit exists in Argentina too, I grew up down there. First time I got something in AUS last night, I thought it was Argentina until I noticed the side of the road cars were on.

    I get a few right on the nose, but that is because of road names. Seems there is fewer repeat road names outside of North America.
