Great combo. Great tour. The place is amazing. They estimate 150,000 prosciutto legs aging at any given time plus all the salames.

I didn't know there was a tour... but I was there on a Sunday so it was pretty quiet... nice roads getting there from lincoln, got to ride my favorite.. Log Road going south which is the downhill version..

The new tag is for the country folk to hit the city... could hit the jackpot down the same road a bit too...

Hmm. they might not, but I could probably organize something if there is enough interest.

Enough hints have been provided. I don't know the area and I know about where this is. A little Google Map Fu and I could dial it in.

In Lincoln, on that road, near the casino.


What I was crudely trying to say was that the spirit of these tag games is to go out and explore around a little, even at the risk of not finding the tag. No one should be posting exact locations. Vague hints are fine, but a lot of the people that play enjoy the unknown aspect of it all. In my opinion, posting exact locations would detract from the game and deny some people the opportunity to search as needed and find unexpected places along the way. You could always just PM the person that made the drop and ask for the address if that's how you want to do it, but please keep it private.

How can you not find what may be the only totem pole in RI?

Since google does not provide much help on this one..
I should provide more info, to narrow down the search area...

This totem pole is on Twin River Road in Lincoln,
near one of the twin rivers: West River

Old Tag: Lincoln Jogging Trail Twin River Road between 310 and 312



I was able to find it on google, but it wasn't easy.

Cry New tag. Almost ran out of daylight.




There is a short section of maintained dirt driveway to get to this tag...if it's a problem,a photo could be taken of the sign at the driveway's entrance instead.

Nice...

I only saw that there was a geocache at this location that mentions "jogging trail",
but it looked like you had to register to get the location details...

I tend to agree with AKAROB in that searching is a big part of the fun. I'm new to the game, but my favorite tags so far have been the ones that I've had to work to find. I don't mind going out for a ride and not being 100% certain that I'm headed to the right spot. It's never a waisted ride...for me, any time on the bike is time well spent.
