slacktrack's Maryland TOR map is 4 years old today.

And it is currently up to date.

713 tags in a little over 4 years.

MotoSailor, or anybody else for that matter. Can I get a little more details on this location? Got a friend who is an aircraft buff and we were planning to go to College park Airport when he's here next week. This spot, I'm unfamiliar with, is it related to College Park Airport? More details please so I can search for more info. Thanks!

This location is:
  • Abandoned
  • Owned by the University of Maryland
  • Formerly an aircraft factory, simulator factory and NOAA facility.

MT2, check this link:
http://members.tripod.com/airfields_...s_MD_PG_C.html

Not quite halfway down the page there is a history of ERCO Field.

They made Ercoupe aircraft in the tagged building.


The location is on the TOR map, Tag #711.

Both are very good histories on the site.

Here are some pictures of the interior that i saw were posted 2 weeks ago.

The site is essentially abandoned, with power and utilities cut, but there are white house archives to the north of the site that will call police if they see activity within the building. Interesting site though! It's a damned shame that it's abandoned. It would make for a great market space!

That's not a tear in my eye, it's just dirt, or maybe an insect.

Sorry I haven't been around much in the past year, gang...been busy, too darn busy. But it's time to get back on that horse, so to speak.

That ERCO place looks pretty interesting, good find!

Here's the tag I picked up this morning:


Motovation Cycles
28953 Three Notch Road
Mechanicsville, MD 20659

I met the two Dans (one's the owner - motomandan on ADV - and the other's one of the mechanics) I didn't get to hang out for long, but definitely good guys Wish I could've made it for the oysters and stuffed ham after Thanksgiving...

New tag:

This private golf course was built a few years ago by the soon-to-be-retired vice president and CEO of Sallie Mae. It's on the western corner of a road that is mentioned in a Washington Post article about the man's decision to build the course after buying the surrounding property.



Here's the view on the other side of the street - the "antebellum red-brick, side-entrance plantation house" that sits in the middle of the whole course:
