    Hi McScruffy,

    You got them all except for #3. You need to travel out west for this one. Great job, though, on the others. I think these are tough even for us folks who live in the U.S.

    I fixed #3. Let me know if that one is correct. I think I was going a little too fast on that one, and I completely missed the 'c'.
