Where's AJ #19

Okay, we're back with another one…and everyone should be able to play this one from both sides of the Pond.

One single clue, Town specific:

This scenery is associated with a very well known area near this town.

*For extra credit, name the 1993 movie in which this town played a pivotal role.

Name the area, town and state.

Cheers!

I have no clue, but I am so glad you are back, missed you both lots. Great picture of AJ by the way…:):):)

Is the movie Tombstone? Are you in or near Arizona though it looks like Arches National Park in Utah???

Looks like Arizona. Anyway great shot of AJ.

Valley of Fire State Park - Route 169, Overton, Nevada, USA?

I'm not very good at this type of game, but I can tell you that your photo is superb. What a great way of documenting AJ's travels/his life. Have missed you here.

Thus far, the area has been named but neither the town nor the film it is associated with…

A hint: the name of the town isn't even mentioned until near the end.

My suggestion came from the movie Star Trek Generations, they filmed there. So I doubt that that's the movie you are thinking of…lol

Wow…guess I gave y'all a tough one. I'll let it ride until later today and then give it up... 😃

I love guessing so let me try again. Is it Moab Utah and is the movie Thelma and Louise. That is in/near arches national park. thanks for the fun and the lovely photo of AJ.:D

What about City Slickers

First Basenji's

could the movie be city slickers I think thelma and louise is too early for that time frame.

It is Moab, Utah. Arches National Park is about 3 miles north of town. The photo, though, was shot at Wilson's arch some 25 odd miles south of town. It would be dumb to try to drive a semi up Arches Park road.

The movie reference is a little more obscure. The film I was referencing is Slaughter of the Innocents with Scott Glenn as the lead. In this film, the bad guy lives in or around Moab and is tracked there by some lateral thinking and Biblical reference to Moabites…and with the assistance of the lead character's son. It's quite good for an eerie thriller film.

yea, well, the only thing that came to my mind was Bridge to Terabethia and I was pretty sure that wasn't right.

thanks for the virtual sightseeing!

I had no hope of guessing and I notice that none of the guesses came from the UK so I don't feel too ignorant!!!! I love the guessing game though - keep it up, please.

Incidentally is a 'semi' the same as an artic?

A "semi" is a nickname for the American version of your Lorry.

Fun fun, can't wait for the next one. But what is an arctic?

McCannClan - an artic (short for articulated) where there is just a tractor unit with an articulated load carrying body. Don't we get onto some subjects!

I think AJ has a wonderful life journeying here and there.

AJ's truck is a 25 foot (appr 6 m) three-axle tractor that hooks by a "fifth wheel" assembly to a 53 foot (appr 16 m) trailer. I suppose that since the trailer articulates with the tractor via the fifth wheel, it would then be an "artic." It's the first time I've heard that term also.

Learn something new every day.

Wow AJ must be a great driver to handle something so big! 🙂
