OK, so I find this very funny:
“I think the nature of a lap dance is, if you consider the [potential for] spreading contagious diseases, much more challenging than other services that are normally performed at restaurants and bars, so that will be complicated,”

I don’t think they’re allowed to give lap dances.

As I don't think it's unique to SoCal, bonus points for the "strip club in a strip mall" of which we have... many. Now's the time, as they're all shuttered due to COVID, so no one will look creepy wheeling their bike up to a strip club.. Okay, at least less creepy.
Bellzora!


Next mission: Help Wile E. Coyote serve the defendant. A business location of any company named Acme.

Yup, the article basically said they opened the clubs, but without lap dances there weren't many customers or dancers.

Friday Doubleshot



They appear to be unaffiliated. Both on Foothill Blvd. (old Route 66) in the Fontana/Ontario area. Fun fact: one of them doesn't even warrant a search result in Google Maps.

Next Mission: something that shares its name with a Disney Princess (Aurora, Moana, Belle, Cinderella, Merida, etc.-- and yes, I guess technically Leia is a Disney Princess now)

Reminds me of when my daughter found out Dad didn't know everything. Showed me her Disney Princess lunchbox and asked me to name them. All I got right was the fishy one and the one with the birds. Failed miserably. I think she was 5 years old.

Hasn't listened to a word I've said since...



Next Mission: A cyclonic storm. Could be the words (hurricane, tornado, dust devil, typhoon....) or a representation. Bonus points for the real thing. Grand jackpot for extraterrestrial cyclone:



Hard part is the bike. And breathing. And 46,214,892 miles.

I've been waiting and waiting on this one, as my two closest options involving Robin Hood are:
  • a montessori school 90 miles away
  • a motel on BIg Bear Lake, a scant 40 miles, but with 8,125ft of climbing
I don't really feel like doing either of those things on Thursday, particularly the latter. I can proudly say I've not done more than 80 miles or 3,000ft of climbing in a day for the entirety of 2020. This is my "rest year."

Nice bike!

Let me guess, the housing development has Sherwood in the name.

Robinhood as one word is a nice touch.

Lol Robinhood circle is off of Sherwood drive. Theres a Victoria drive as well. Not really up on my Robin Hood trivia but I've often wondered if Victoria went with the Sherwood theme.

A couple of shots of an antique tractor. Actually running. Notice that it moved between shots.

Union Local: UAW 807, The International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace, and Agricultural Implement Workers of America.

Next Mission: Large undomesticated live animal - mammal, bird, fish, reptile, etc. No dogs or cats unless they are bobcats or mountain lions or wolves or coyotes which would earn double points.

Hard to get the bike in the shot.

Closest I could get before spooking them.

Next Mission: An electric vehicle charging station.

Well done! Canadian Geese and ducks are about the only wild life I see while riding around town, even though I usually see 4 or 5 deer in my back yard every evening.

Local grocery store, never saw an electric vehicle there, or anywhere else in town outside of one Tesla driving through town.

Three charging stations at local Casino:


Basket loaded with wife's energy drink bought at the grocery store while taking previous picture.

Not sure about the mental state of most noodles;

Next Mission:
A pic of an aircraft. Could be a civilian or a military one. Fixed wing only.
Bonus points if the pic resembles in any way the famous Top Gun scene:
