I had some errands to do, but I'm finished with them now and will have a new tag up shortly.

Marsh Tiger, I'm really upset with myself for forgetting to stop at the Superette the other day. Those are just the type of eating establishments I seek when riding.

I don't know about those greens, however. I love most vegetables, but those greens did look a little scary. You gotta remember tho, that I was raised "up north" and such things are quite foreign to me.

You won't find any kale down here Byrd! You know, when on Rome and all that...

Anyway, great grabs and tags! Even if you won't eat our greens, you are playing a good game of Tag!

Thanks for the kind words, Marsh Tiger. Yours was the first tag(anywhere) I've tried to grab. I wanted to go for a ride and decided I needed a destination for the day. After figuring the location of the tag and entering the info into my GPS, off I went on my little adventure. My GPS got me to the correct street ok, but it wanted me to keep on going right past the tag. Fortunately, I noticed the fire station as I was riding past it.

Finding and posting the tags has been fun, but my current posted tag will be my last, as I'm leaving for Ohio tomorrow. I plan on taking 2 to 3 days to get to Ohio(I'll be on my DR650 and using back roads almost exclusively) and won't be back here until fall at the earliest, but will keep checking in occasionally.

As for my current tag......I'll post additional clues as needed(starting Sunday evening, if no one has grabbed it by then). I don't want to post any more clues before then, because someone may already know where it is, but can't go for a ride till the weekend.......you know, work and all.

I know I said I wouldn't give any more clues, but I will say allow time to explore the area around the tag......it's worth it.

Have fun everyone and I look forward to returning next fall.

Dave

I'm stumped... Google has failed me as well. :)

Got there with Google!

Now if I just had a hall pass this weekend...... I guess somebody has to watch the kids while the Mrs. takes the BRC class.











Just out of curiousity, is it legal to carry two kids on the bike with you?

legal not sure...

I find it difficult riding with one hand while texting with the other. I'd think it's damn ner impossible to ride while carrying both kids. How big are they? Can you hold them both with one hand or put them in side cases?

Sidecases?

Don't think they'll fit in the sidecases, strapped on top of them maybe.

Actually I was considering one pillion and one on the tank....

Maybe the second one in my backpack?

Meh, better just wait and hope no one else snags the tag.....

Nice going Prysock! Since you've located the tag, I won't post any additional clues tomorrow. That will perhaps give you a few more days to grab it before anyone else.

Good luck,
Dave

Dave, you're all right. Next time you are down, try to be here long enough to make one of the state lunches.

Thanks for the invitation Marsh Tiger.

I did attend the lunch at Truluck's in early February. I wanted to go to one more before returning north for the summer, but alas, it wasn't to be. Next year, I'll make every effort to make it to another one.

I think I'll be on my F800 next year, however. It's just a lot more comfortable covering long distances on it, rather than the DR650.

Dave

Haven't grabbed a tag lately. After about 10 minutes of googling I finally found this one. A little too far to go tonight- maybe next weekend if it's still standing.

Is there a dual-sporter friendley version of google that i dont know about. (like one with a throttle and a broke off clutch lever)

How about a clue -- or one of you go grab it and post another please.


God bless and best regards, Ken

Clueless...

I guess I must have on beer googles. I have looked for for this spot for over 2 weeks.
( dumb ask question alert!) I just started playing Tag-o-Rama and I am not sure what proper etiquette is concerning clues, can anyone give me the DL on how often you should post them and is there such a thing as a dead tag? I posted my first tag a few weeks ago and when no one grabbed it, I started to panic and throw out clues after only a few days.
