Contest 282: Sprung

Before spring finally broke out all over, many Washingtonians were so fed up with the cold, rainy weather that they jumped on a plane to a town southwest of Chiang Mai, Thailand, to get in the mood.

Name the rock.

Deadline for Contest 282 entries is Friday, April 15, at 10 a.m. Send entries by e-mail (travtrivia@ washpost.com; put "ETT No. 282" in subject field); fax (202-912- 3609); or U.S. mail (postcards only) to Extreme Travel Trivia, Washington Post Travel Section, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071). One entry per person. Winner chosen at random from correct entries.

RESULTS FROM 280: POWER GENE

In Contest 280, we noted that scientists have discovered that women are genetically more complex than men, with their underperforming "Y" chromosomes, and so they flew to a rock in Antarctica to celebrate their findings. Congrats to Daryl Hodge of Arnold, Md., who wins a Travel section mousepad for finding Rock X.
