    Wheat Row is a row of four Late Georgian style townhouses located at 1315, 1317, 1319, and 1321 4th Street SW in the Southwest Waterfront neighborhood of Washington, D.C., in the United States. Begun in 1794 and completed in 1795, the structures are some of the oldest residential homes in the District of Columbia. They served several uses in the early and mid 20th century, but were integrated into the Harbour Square apartment cooperative in 1963. Wheat Row was added to the National Register of Historic Places on July 23, 1973.

    Default FS2022 Bonus Day Details for March 19th

    Freezing Saddles 2022 Scavenger Hunt Bonus Day!

    FS2022 is drawing to a close, and there is conveniently one day that does not fall within a weekly theme, so we’re making it bonus day! As with the rest of the competition, there are two options – the daily participation prize, and the “beauty” prize. But note – your ONE submission on this day will only count for ONE of the two options.

    What does this mean? It means that you must tell us in your forum post for 19 March WHICH option you are going for. We will only consider you for ONE option. You should include in your forum post either:
    • March 19: Daily Participation Prize; or
    • March 19: Beauty Prize

    Good news: You will have until the end of 20 MARCH to submit your final photo in the forum.

    Now, for the details.

    If you want to compete for the daily participation prize bonus, you will earn a point for EACH item from the following list in ONE photograph:
    • Oblate Spheroid
    • Flowering Tree
    • Wine
    • Crosswalk
    • St. Patrick's Day
    • Moon
    • Embassy
    • Chemistry
    • Indigo
    • Independent Bakery
    • Art Deco Architecture
    • Bicycle



    For instance, if you find an Irish shamrock (I’m going to warn you now that we will not tolerate 4-leaf clovers for St. Patrick’s Day) in front of the Embassy of Sweden, and both your bicycle and a crosswalk are in the picture as well, you earn 4 points.

    This means that you have the potential for 12 bonus points in the daily participation contest if you choose this option.

    One item cannot count for two items on the list (an indigo oblate spheroid only counts for one item, for example). And of course you cannot submit items that you bring with you on your bike ride (we will make an exception for your own bicycle, but nothing else).

    I recommend telling us which items you have in your photo. Make it obvious.

    Everyone who chooses to submit a photo for the daily participation competition will receive points for their submission.
    Don’t forget that you must include “#scavhunt” in your Strava title.

    If you want to compete for bonus points in the “beauty” prize, you simply must submit:
    The most beautiful, cool, striking, artsy-fartsy photograph of a bicycle EVER conceived by man – according to our anonymous panel of judges.
    Prize: 5 points.
    Only ONE person who competes for this option will receive the bonus points.

    IMPORTANT: Don’t forget to tell us which option you are submitting for and may the canniest seeker win.
