To be fair, I didn't even Google it (probably should have before posting). It's too far out for me to get to today.

I reposted that rule because Jeff B couldn't find it and asked for clarification and not much more was given. I've been frustrated by overly vague clues in this game a few times in the past and figured this was the same. It gets frustrating when I am unable to find out where a tag is after a few minutes of Googling (though I may have erred in posting about this particular tag it seems).

Perhaps my Google-fu is weak (and all indications say it is)... But it clearly says in the rules that this game is about riding, not Googling. Therefore, sucking at Google shouldn't hinder anyone in this game.

Just got home after a 200 mile ride and wow, didn't know I had stirred up this much controversy. I have froze the clue as Jeff B has requested.....just added a little clarity.


Sorry for the confusion, but I pre-googled this prior to posting and there are two items in the picture that will give you an immediate response on Google also.

It took less than five minutes to find it using google. If you find your way on this forum and know how to post you should have at least the minimum Google skills needed to find it. If not ask a third grader to help.

You're right, I did chop off the first few words. Oops!

I shoulda quoted Jeff when I posted that google-fu comment, he was the one I was poking with a stick. He likes it when I do that.

See, this guy here is the one you want to be pissed at, he's always been a trouble maker.

lol... In all seriousness, I like Googling the tags, I learn about the tag/history even if I don't go after it. If not for that we might as well just give GPS coordinates and forget the rest.

Either way, my Googling skills do suck!

Dude it was so funny. Up down back n forth. A cop in Cresson pulled me over and said "what the hell are you doing?" I showed him the tag clue and pic and he laughed. He said that about applies to every town on the rail line.

Hey, I worked/rode hard and come up empty handed.

Wow, for once I get to be the official douchbag.

When someone posted coords for the first time in this thread, a small stink was raised by someone who didn't have a GPS device on their bike. I thought, "hey, yeah, I don't have a GPS, either. That's not very fair".

Someone politely pointed out that since the drop pic was being posted to an INTERNET forum, any reader should be able to find the location... on the internet. ...D'oh!

Sometimes we just forget.

...edit: uh, maybe it needs pointing out: the "official douchbag" text above is a clickable link. ;)
