Glad to hear it. New tag shouldn't be too far for you.

It's all just parts and pieces. No mojo involved.
I'll be in that neck of the TriTOR map for a chunk of tomorrow. Text or call if you hit a snag.

Blown Gasket Tavern Tag Tech lesson learned.

So I head out to grab the Blown Gasket Tavern Tag. It's 4:30am, a bit windy, very dark. I attach my freshly charged iphone 4s and launch Motion X gps to get my there. It's a 45 minute jog on some nice country roads. I successfully reach the Tavern. Bud Lite beer case cardboard littered the entrance. I grap my trusty iphone to snag the tag. Well, 1st I received the low battery warning, then the plug me in idiot icon. I had no charger, no other camera. So instead of the grab photo, I just received cold hands and frozen toes, damnit.

Just draw a picture in MS Paint. Or just post the "grab" with no picture and edit it later. That's what Rugby would do.

Patience Grasshopper.

Yes... the world sees the tag. Some may not have the patience to ferret out the details of where it is. Others have an Anchor and will do well. Even if something Pearces, it doesn't have to sting. I am glad you have the ST back on the Road. See you in Church maybe. Unless it is raining and no good Baptist don't go to church then.
