It's annoying how if you check to see if you've cleared your route, you just restrengthen your memo stored on it.I use:
- Sentences without specific structure for 3BLD
- Recently switched to journey for 4 and 5 BLD, though several journeys start from a location inside my house.
I typically use three Letter pairs per location
EV KW PR would be: In the hallway I use a bottle of EVian with Kiewen (Dutch for gills)) to smash a PeaR
Depending on the situation I may make a more detailled story or try to envision smaller details of it to make it more memorable.
And I agree, memo typically sticks very well.
To illustrate; still know my story from my 5 bld attempt at N8WB last Sunday:
Instead of translating all words or adding the correct letter pair in brackets I have just CapitaliseD myLetter pair images.
So due to translation Dutch-English some letters are different from my actual memo.
In the hallway ViDi uses a SocK during a BJ
Toilet: I notice a HoLe in my PC, gnawed in by FiKkie
Doorstep: NeW QujO (the dog…) of Roque (X-men), she doesn’t like it and throws it into the wall (MU)
Playhouse: BrA with FiVe images of KetelBinkie
Hedge: trough the hedge appears a TraiN pulling a Sit-on-Top with my DAd on it
Cabin: on the cabin an ULtralight plane covers in DeWdrops lands, pilot informs me he was actualy trying to fly to the MooN
Path: A bottle of nasty Oxo broth
Here I actually missed the last cycle during memo…
Field: LioN from URuzgan holding a Sign with “IJ”
Driveway: there’s vacuum (VQ) packaged FeTa cheese in a BucKet
Garage: Chris Hardwick playing with a BadGer while listing to music from the PiXies
Garden: a PiG running around
Driveway: GoD using a bottle of EVian to squash a BeetLe
Parking space: something WaLHalla
This one I could not recall AT ALL during the attempt, still missing a bit…
Garden: Quark (DS9) spraying Deet N on IWein (indicates U /D sticker of flipped corners are on on I and W)
