Yes indeed. And my wife is none too happy about it either. She just doesn't understand.

Nice enough for night tagging

Dang! seriously? This tag made it through the nicest day of the last three weeks without getting grabbed? If I hadn't placed it I'd go grab it tonight it's so nice out there.

Follow up on a tough tag

Oh, and it would not be wise to ride two on a bike up this road. It was like that ride we did over Ruth Mountain/Blakey's Ridge several weeks ago. Maybe a few spots even worse, or better depending on how you look at it.

Having now been up there I have an idea what the mistake might have been.

Yes I am glad we did not ride 2-up on the 200 now that I know how rough that road was. As for the mistake, we had figured out the number by the first clue but believe it or not there are two roads named 629 around here. One is County Road 629 and the other is State Route 629. We found State Route 629 and I couldn't figure out any of the other clues in the first post except for the number so we road up and down State Route 629 a bunch of times feeling very silly ... I am sure the residents were suspicious. :)

Was that St rd 629 also known as Welsh Run Rd in Greene? I also road all the way up and down that road, even placed the NWVA tag on it because I ran out of free time and had to put it somewhere, and bwalsh was not too happy that I had put their tag "out of bounds"

I think there's another 629 out in Orange near Orange lake, and I really thoight it was that one based on the possibility of the "used to cost admission" clue, thought the lake might fit that description. I guess not.

Haha.. I got a little confused by the original clue 8:54. My first thought was 6 of 9 or 609. (six-oh-nine)

But after the second clue I knew where it was but had no chance to get up there...

Too funny! I love how we were all so close. The clue that I could not figure out for the life of me was the "use to cost admission". I tried to figure that one out far too long.

Yes, it was 629 / Welsh Run Rd in Greene. :)

Alright. I am sure we figured out the area but if I am interpreting the clues correctly I still need a little more help to narrow it down. Can I have another clue?

+1. The only place I came up with has nothing that matches your picture. Maybe grizz47 can grab it since he knows the location.

I thought this one was easy to find. The clues told me the general area. Then I used Google to find the fence and red fire hydrant.

In the recent Northern VA tag, I hadn't a clue where to begin looking. The clues are similar. I couldn't connect "heaven" with cupcakes, but it appears that I understand crashing.

Leon.

edit- while I know where it is, there is still not much chance that I'll ride out to get it.

The fire hydrant is in front of an institute, and the higher learning that goes on here helps a gecko decide which cars save you 15% or more.

And there may have been a large cow milking operation on this road at some point. Hell, maybe there still is.
