You forgot to click on a different size before grabbing the link. The second thing to go is your eyesight by the way...

Didn't I just send your butt to Walls, MS? Not too far, just the wrong direction. I've been on three solid days of shooting this week. Maybe I'll take some time off and go get seniorasi's tag--it's much more interesting than an overstated piece of lawn chatchki.

Thanks for the advice Dan. BTW...If you see my first thing to go lying around drop it in the mail to me. I'll be all too delighted to reimburse your postage expenditures.

Oh crud, never mind..... I couldn't get the big pics to load on my phone and thought that I remembered it was the marker in Moscow.




Carry on.......

I edited it and realized we just rode 100 miles for the wrong tag.

Oops!

On a bright note you weren't too far from the real tag. If I'm not mistaken its in Lagrange.

Just a little about our day.....

We got out late, decided to grab a bite at the Wolf River Café and got there around 10:30.

Too late for breakfast and too early for lunch evidently as our food didn't come until 11:30....
We entertained ourselves watching two ladies on a Shadow and a Savage spend 15 minutes to put on a half shell helmet. Seriously, that was all their gear. We winced as they wobbled down the road, then came back a few minutes later going the other way. I think at least one of them was a new rider, which worried me since I didn't think her deck shoes would be very grippy if needed.

After we ate, Bill went to pay the check and the cashier had gone to the bank. We watched her leave about 15 - 20 minutes before and they said it might still be a while.....

So...... we waited patiently.

Couldn't get the thread to load on my phone and thought I knew where it was, so we proceed to tag the wrong spot!

Then, on the way to the next tag we were held up by a COALLLLLLLL TRAINNNNNNN!!!!


Next we got to wait at the one lane light at the river bridge....

Stopped at the gas station in Somerville and watched a Harley rider braid his hair into a pony-tail while I waited for Bill. Then his wife came out.

I told Bill that you would think she could have done that for him while they were riding, but I guess a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do!

We proceeded to our next tag (that's a secret) and then home.

What an ADV kind of day.

Wish I had that kind of patience Gloria. I waited 90 minutes for two eggs over easy one morning after the rush. I didn't care for the food, the service, or the attitude of the staff. I've not been back. YMMV.

Josh is correct ZZ Girl: It's in La Grange. If you're east bound on the east side of town you'll find it on the north side of the highway 600 yds. before the stop sign at the T. I love reading history and wonder what life in the US would be like had the war between the states not occurred.

Huh, that's probably what I need to do. I couldn't get the pics on my phone yesterday and thought it was because I had a weak signal there at the restaurant.

Service was never fast at the WRC, but the attitude of the staff was always very friendly. The last couple of times we've stopped in it has been a different experience. I think maybe ownership or management has changed.

I must have been there on an off day for them Gloria. It's been 5 or 6 years ago I guess...I don't usually besmirch the wait staff or the cooks regardless of service, just chiming in.

My type A tendencies aren't as focused as they were but I'm still more of an eat and run individual. Slowing down in my old age...but still like to go.

So...Where are we in the PT hunt? I went to Savannah today for a part that didn't fit my bike. The upside is I had a great burger at the Toll House, met a fellow ADV guy, and the ride was awesome! I would have even had time for a photo tag mission.

Things are slowing down in the remodeling until more planning is done. I'll actually be able to make the dinner rides I think.
