Hello RoadKill Rebels,

Welcome to the Challenge for August 2014. The drill is still the same: find as much roadkill as you can between May 1st and 31st.

As HOK3Y said when she launched the first challenge in October 2013, "the only stipulation is that it must be found outside of your home and/or car - it has to be money that genuinely wasn't yours or your family's before you found it! So if you find it down the side of the sofa, it doesn't count!

We also collect wombled receipts and discarded lottery scratch-cards to see if we can make some pennies that way too, and we keep track of these earnings separately."

Please feel free to sign up and don't forget to subscribe!

    Following July's stellar (and exotic) haul I have found a further 1c (on the Corsa Italia, Sorrento) and, back in blighty, 9p already! All on 1 August!

    WOOT!

    Went out for a drink after work and saw a 1p on the way to the bar, didn't feel comfortable enough to pick it up in front of work colleagues but managed to get it on the way back to the car.

    Well done for clocking its position and going back to claim your treasure. X marks the spot :T

    Zero so far for me :( we were in Florida a couple of weeks ago and we found loads, especially dimes and 1 cent coins which are really small and fiddly, we saved up 25 x 1 cent coins and paid a road toll with them :)
