Stinky Locations - Project Discussion

 

I got a really funny file that came through yesterday and I sat there staring at it for a few minutes trying to decide what to do with it. Jon and I talked about it and he suggested that we make a special file that the location could fit into.

So if you have ever driven around with your window open and have had to quickly close them so that the smell coming from the outside didn't melt your nose then we have a solution for you.

tomb993 submitted a location for stinky cows at Harris Ranch on 1-5 in central California. I would like to make a file for stinky locations, these can be from cows, to factories, to water features. Whatever causes you to frantically roll up that window. I hope that someone will post the location for what I have called Tacoma Aroma in the Tacoma Washington area.

I am going to publicly beg rhythmtip to make a sound file to go with this that sais "quick roll up your window, approaching stinky air zone" Please, Please, Please.

someone may actually be able to find an icon that would go well also, maybe someone holding their nose;) Bobkz can I count on you to find that one?

Let's see how big we can make this file.
Go ahead and post locations in this thread.

    Stinky Locations

    Wow!....Having just registered, I'm really impressed!!! I can't believe how valuable this is going to be to all of us who enjoy motorcycle touring, and haven't got windows to roll up!!!

    Pehaps another audio alert for those of us who can only hope that by holding our breath we can avoid the most noxious effects?

    I'll be certain to contribute those locations I discover which present "stink hazards" beyond the frequent dead skunk.

    Another bad smell

    Driving by this INTERNATIONAL PAPER company plant always made me gag. One of the worst smells.

    err maybe you can make that Stickney, Illinois. LoL There is a Water Reclamation plant at 3900 S. Central. And to make problems worse, four blocks away at 4950 w. 39th street there is a garbage sorting station. And is you drive 2 blocks east and 3 blocks north is the horse race track. AArrrggg try riding on a motorcycle during a hot summer day in that area. Peeeyyewwww. sad

    stinky file update

    Just thought I would mention two locations that I know you would want to ROLL UP THE WINDOWS. If you are traveling on I-20 thru the Monroe, La area and also on U.S.59 between Atlanta, Tx and Texarkana, Tx be aware of the PAPER MILLS - when these Mills are in production the air is full of lingering Stinky Odor(s) - I travel these areas quite frequently and can speak from experience that these areas will clear your sinus - ya'll have a great day

    Stinky Places

    I had the displeasure ONCE, of visiting Garden City, KS.

    Good gosh!!! that place stunk to high heaven. Turns out to be a city surrounded by cattle feed lots.

    Whew!

    Stu

    Not many locations

    I just took a look at the actual file and only saw maybe 5 or 6 locations. Not real useful at this point for having so many posts in this thread.

    I pass by a rendering plant on my way to work every day. I'll have to stop and get coordinates and the name of the place and post them here.

    Posted item, incorrect highway

    On the original stinky listing, it shows I-95 in Gaston County, NC, however, I-95 does not go through Gaston County.... It's I-85 that goes down through Gaston County.

    Keep up the great work. This is the best POI site...perdiod.

    smells in Texas

    The Amarillo stock yards will cause one to attempt impossible feats of breath-holding. On a still day the stench is practically visible. I-40

    The petrochemical refineries in Pasadena/Deer Park, produce some of the most toxic smelling vapors imaginable. This is not the healthy organic stink of a stockyard or a papermill. TX Hwy 225

    I'll try to get actual coordinates soon.

    Does driving by the area where a person works count as a Stinky Location, because it JUST STINKS to be in the same area as your place of work.

    Welcome to Disgusta, GA

    As they drive out of the airport towards the I-520 connection or to downtown, visitors to Augusta, GA quickly find out why it is named the Garden City.

    They pass the water treatment plant NW of the airport on Hwy 56! The sweet smell of manure plus the aroma from nearby Phinizy swamp awaken one's nasal passages while enjoying the utter decay of this old part of Augusta.

    It's no wonder why small jets always land at smaller Daniel Field during the Masters golf tournament.

    Odoriferous

    As posted, I agree that paper mills/plants are of a less than pleasant nature in the area of smell.

    The Oscar Mayer plant in Madison, Wi is not a pleasant place when driving by. (as are many dog food, or food processing plants...)

    I will see what locations I can come up with... redface

    Dear JMAR,

    I have set mine at half a mile (2640 feet) and it has not alerted as yet. I must be lucky. I shall have to reconsider. What setting are you using now?

    Suggest that you add a section to the file for the wonderful aromas of life. My particular favorite is the Anheuser-Busch brewery in St. Louis adjacent to I-55 south of downtown.

    My father worked there for 42 years - I was there constantly as a child. I love that smell.

    However, about a 1/2 mile south of there is a rendering plant that knocks your socks off on summer days.

    Ocean stink?

    I discovered there is a stink zone in this file which is around 50 miles west of San Diego, about 10 miles east of San Clemente isand, out in the ocean. I think there might have been a typo in the data? Culd someone look into it?

    Great file. I'll be sure to add the cattle yards I encounter between San Diego and Phoenix next time I go.

    My laptop crashed and I had most of my POI stuff on it. I just re-downloaded the Stinky file but I can't find the alert sound I used before. It was the one that warned about a "smelly a$$ air zone ahead". Has that been deliberately removed or did I get it somewhere else?
