I pass one on the way to my dad's up in Oxford. I think it's either on 96 or Cannady Mill Road. I'll find out. This one should go pretty quickly.

Oh yeah, and this one too. Forgot about them. From the list linked above:

Boyce Farms
Mike & Sheila Boyce

2813 Mt. Vernon Ch Rd
Raleigh, NC 27613
Phone: 919-848-8264
E-mail: boycefarms@bellsouth.net

Website:
www.boycefarms.com


If I were to get a little creative with "a race track", I could probably grab all these in a 20 mile loop.

New list

New list
Should go pretty quickly...

Muddy Waters songs

1) Iodine in My Coffee - get a coffee shop - preferably something other than a Starbucks

2) Whiskey Blues - a bar, not a brewpub, not some college beer dump, but someplace to get a drink

3) Down South Blues - a highway sign indicating you're heading south

4) Going Down To Main Street - Main Street anything

5) Going Home - a view of one of the *good* roads you take when you're heading home

Very nice holding the Last Letter, N. American Wild, Global Wild, and Global Multi tags all at once!!

Now, when are you putting up the new Global Multi tag? We're gonna get snow up north here pretty soon!

My guess is that you've got a pretty good fault line within striking distance:



This is pretty cool too. I have to see if I can find something like this for this area:

I was thinking something along the lines of the highest point, a cave system, gorge, promitory, mesa, etc. Lots of latitude on this grab.

Shall we make that game a wee bit global then!
I think I don't have to introduce myself, as almost all players here are also playing the global wild card tag..
I don't have much time to take pictures lately, as work is getting more and more and daylight's getting less and less.
Anyway, today was a great day - 5°C, but sunny and dry.
I only learned about the multi tag game last week (thanks to advNZer?'s comment) and I thought, I'd give t a try!

Here you go:

1. Fiat 500


2. Our power plant. Unfortunately that's as close as you can get.


3. That's where I would buy my trees - Jardinerie de St-Triphon


4. An observatory. That was a bit tricky. Not a big one - but it's definitely an observatory: Observatoire de Vérossaz




5. I think the Alps as such stand out. This is the Dent de Morcles, just around the corner, one of the trademark peaks of my region.




As this is my first post here, I'm waiting for approval!
Cheers, mates.
