Technically no, but it is as close as you can get without being in it.

Rules are easy...[LIST=1][*]Find the tag and reproduce the photo (as best as possible). Take the tag to a new location, get the photo and post it here. Give a few hints so the next person can figure out where the tag is located.Make the clues clear and easiiy understood.

Finally,

If you wanna play, you gotta ride.

GO GIT'EM

I don't wanna be a grumpy monkey but why don't people give clues? A street sign or a sign that can be googled. A well known backdrop or business. Or a few words to help. I might not ride to every tag but I do try and identify each tag before it's grabbed.

It's really about the ride not stumping everyone and slowing down the game.

Rant over.

Roger that Oilhead.

Clues are that it is on the Mansfield town line, just the other side though, on Rt 195. It's at a small park, and this structure is a couple feet from the road.

You can see locals there with water jugs usually.

Hope that's enough!

It's a solid 40 miles from my house and I knew what it was as soon as I saw it. If the tag is unique enough, no clues are needed. This one would have moved just fine with no additional info. So personally, I like a little mystery to it.

I disagree Rob. I think anyone should be able to get it with a little research. Not just those few who have been there and recognize it. Otherwise some folks just gotta sit out.

I agree with Mark. I am new to tag game and not very familiar with the area it's almost impossible to find the tag with no clue.

No worries. Clues are up with the tag now. If we need more clues, just say so. I don't want to just tell you where it is, now do I?
