Maybe well-known to those that know it! But an overlook with a picnic table at a T in a dirt road??? How many places in PA would that fit???

The covered bridge was easy to google... covered bridges in Columbia Co., (the previous tag was in Northumberland, close to Columbia Co, which is well known for it's covered bridges) the look at the pics that came up, pick the one that looked similar, and find that it is 49 feet long, same as in the clue! Took about 2 minutes to find the location!

But a dirt road with a T????
Need more than that, otherwise we'll start seeing a friggin' oak tree as a tag!

Maybe so, but re-read rule #3:

Quote:
#3 - Tag must be a) findable and b) not placed on a dirt road. Maintained gravel is OK, but make sure to let folks know that gravel is required to get to your tag. We don't want to exclude those who don't like to get dirty.

Yikes!

Damn! This posting business is really exciting!

I am not really from the area where the tag is, and I have never been there, but I know where it is because friends of mine from all over the place have been there.

I cannot answer to that, but my guess is the road is passable by anyone who is reading this thread.

Beyond that, it's up to Huckleberry to address your worries and concerns. But I will say this: It's not a t. It's a t. Nitey night!

Tag

Took me a few minutes, but I got it. Thirty years ago, when I was in school, visited there a few times. Girls were hot, that's how "I" know the tag spot! Don't let the rule mongers head you down the

ok so at least this 1 generated some feedback! as far as it being a dirt road this was a bit of a ride before work so i was in 4th and 5th gear - it is gravel and dirt and it had rained so some of the corners where the gravel is pushed off the road it is a bit greasy! a street bike should be no problem, i'm on battlewings by the by. i'm trying to make it challenging with out telling everyone the name of the road or the 2 lakes many people would say oh i know where that is or the town where evrryone would say oh i know where it is now ya know! there was another clue besides the t if you were paying attention to the noob jab! and if i was just outside the forest with my trusty old sock and wasn't ticklish everything would be cool! ps sorry for picking on the noob!!! by the way it is on a state route
