Well maybe over the weekend I'll have a cup of coffee and flip over to the tag.

See what I did there? ^^

I guess my drop was too out of the way?

unless someone else picks it up in the next couple of weeks, i'll get it and take it back out to the coast? Vacationing in Aptos so it would be worth the ride and near some cool stuff?

Got it. Saw this thread yesterday, realized nobody had grabbed the tag, so I got it this morning. Casa de Fruita, between Hollister and Pacheco Pass on highway 156, central California. It shows up on Google Maps as Casa de Carousel.

The new tag....

This is the new tag. It's on what used to be an Army base, but during one of the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) sessions, the base was split up between a couple of local communities, and a university now takes up a substantial portion of the base. If nobody figures out where it's at, I've got a couple more pics that I can add later that will be a dead giveaway for the general location, although if you look closely at this pic you'll see exactly where it's at.

Yes, the new tag is easy...if you look at the pic and know where to look while on the ground. But I posted the pic on my facebook page as well, and someone who used to be stationed there had no idea where it was at.

But I gotta say...I'm glad the previous tag was where it was at and that it sat for a while. Several months ago I sold my previous motorcycles due to a move and due to some health issues. As recently as two months ago, I didn't think I'd ever be riding again. But things appear to have turned around. It may not seem like much of a ride to go get the previous tag, but for me it was huge...just being able to ride for a while was a big deal to me.

And on that note, I'm headed out the door to get in a little more riding before the sun goes down.

Any excuse, right?

Glad you are back in good health and on 2 wheels!

Bump for keeping the tag moving...

I'd grab it, but I'm the one that moved it to its current location.
