Can I pinpoint the EXACT location of my fans using a single image?
A few weeks ago I successfully and swiftly identified the exact Bali swimming pool that a random Instagram model was snapped, following a request from an alleged victim of a catfish. I did this using a mixture of Geoguessr knowledge, Google Earth and Google's search engine. Following some dialogue with my impressed patreons, an idea was spawned. Why don't I make a series out of it where I try to successfully identify where my patreons/fans are using the small amounts of information that can be seen in the background? Here's the result.
Pinpointing the exact location of my fans using a single image.. GEO DETECTIVE #2
Having successfully found last weeks subjects, we move straight on to our fourth target, holiday maker Andrew Feathercock. With nothing but a mosque and a few boats in the background, this promises to be a tough one, but will I do it?

Playing the Geodetective Map - No moving, just calculation. [PLAY ALONG]
Been looking forward to this one. Thanks to Geography Challenges for making this sick map. The clues are there, but how will I fare?
Play your round, put your marker down, then switch tabs back to Youtube to watch my attempt and the result. This way you don't ruin the game or the video!
Geoguessr - Geodetective - 2 minutes per round! [PLAY ALONG]
Had a lot of requests for this since the first geodetective video, so here's another one except with a 2 minute timer on each round.
BEST WAY TO PLAY: Before you watch the video, play the first round and make your selection. As soon as you make your selection quickly switch over to the YouTube tab before the time runs out and watch me play the first round. That way you don't spoil the surprise element of the video. When you reopen the Geoguessr tab the you will see how our guesses compare. Good luck!

ALL the best Detective Rounds from my NMPZ record attempts (mostly unseen!)
Detective rounds. The shit name that I gave to those rounds where you figure out exactly where you are in the world (or near enough) using limited information. Usually more laborious and time consuming than an insane guess, but every bit as rewarding.
In this video you get to see some of the best unseen detective rounds from the 15 hours of attempts I've made so far in my quest for the leaderboard, as well as three rounds that I'm sure you won't mind seeing one more time: Valparaiso, Salta and of course, Kenya.

Monday's INSANE live stream: 10 secs per round, no moving, scrolling, zooming, diverse world #3
Simply had to upload this. After a few poor attempts and with 5 minutes left of playing until the end of the stream, this game happened. There were some favourable rounds, but boy did I capitalise.

*ELDERBERRIES ARE NOT EDIBLE RAW!!* ..forgot to fully explain that in the video.
Last summer, me and my brother Ben shoved some pots and pans in a rucksack and headed for the forests of south Wiltshire to try our hand at foraging, fishing and living off the land. With land owners to look out for, Norway injuries lingering, bad weather and next to no idea what we were doing, it was never going to be a roaring success, but in and amongst the calamity, chaos and hopelessness, there are enough amusing and heart warming moments to make this story a memorable one.

My fastest UK speed run to date (Perfect score in almost 5 minutes)
It's another attempt to get the world's fastest UK speed run, but with insane times coming in from other British players, I'll do well to get back into the top 3. With an increasingly busy schedule, I can only afford to spend so many hours per day trying to get that golden run. I can tell you that today's effort is fast, but is it fast enough to get my name back on that leaderboard?
