Current Quiz Previous 100 Winners Rules
From Fort Lauderdale, Florida, I've just posted a new Geography Quiz on 04/15/14 at approximately 08:00AM EDT. A $100.00 cash prize will be paid to the person who submits the first correct answer, and anyone (worldwide) can participate.
Clue #1 (04/15/14)
This beautiful place was first put on the map by a very accomplished man, that in the end, after notable successes around the planet died homeless, and reportedly killed himself.
(Matthias Zurbriggen was one of the great 19th-century alpinists and mountain guides. He climbed throughout the Alps, the Andes, and the Himalayas. He made a considerable number of first ascents, the best known of which is Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Americas, which he climbed alone in 1897)
Clue #2 (04/15/14)
For some reason (maybe for pride) it remains part of a misunderstanding (mostly in Asia), as its size (to some who don't read carefully) is commonly misstated, but in reality, as a part of an established list, it is not. So there!
(Fact: Aconcagua is the second highest of the Seven Summits, the highest mountains on each of the seven continents. Some people in Asia still feel that's an incorrect statement as there are several 8K peaks in Asia (including K2) - and Aconcagua, isn't even a 7K peak. Oh well, to bad, so sad)
