Posted:Define obscure?

I mean, does the fact that no one has heard of my home town count as obscure?

-industrial buildings
-towers
-bridges
-hilltops
-sewers
-subways
-caves

etc.

Posted:Those are mostly extreme...

for a literal definition of obscure the range would be huge, I reckon somewhere with an interesting name or setting. A locality called Backwater up near Armidale (Oz), or Windwhistle in NZ are the first to spring to mind.

The day we rode through Windwhistle it was - about 120k, it rolled a semi-trailer, so it could qualify for extreme at the same time. grin

Posted:Would a women's bathroom in an old industrial center in Detroit be obscure enough? xD I have to start searching!

The only luck is bad luck.
