LPGA Boulevard → Ankeny Boulevard (or, mercifully, I used a shot where First Street (on the other mast arm) is a Y-Rule option ;-)) (Ankeny, IA)

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing, only multi-lane roundabouts.

Lorenz -> Zoo Drive (LA):

The sign for Zoo Drive is smaller in the background on the right side of the freeway.  Rule 3 suggests that this should be a valid play.

Zoo > Oakwood (near Jacksonville, Arkansas) - Taken on April 11th, 2018

Does anyone know what M.H. is?

Nope, but I'm going to assume it's a suffix and not part of the main name.

And I may as well just go back to this one:

Oakwood M.H. → Del Ridge Dr (Douglasville, GA; previously played for Shoals School)

I did some googling and all I could find was an Oakwood Drive in Jacksonville, AR. Unfortunately, GSV didn't go down that road for whatever reason, so I couldn't investigate it any further than that. I do suspect they're related, though, and as such going with just "Oakwood" as the name seems appropriate to me. (There was also an Oakwood Manor Drive, outside Jacksonville, but the signs seen in GSV clearly indicated that it was not at all related to the one in TBKS1's picture.)

Anyway:

Del Ridge Drive → Eighth Street (Albany, MN)

I have a new batch of photos available, but they don't have many Ns, so I'll wait until I actually need one and just use the N rule here.

Huntington Dr → Santa Anita Ave → Ahaluna Dr (Gainesville, GA)
