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. ;)

Mr sticky, welcome back stranger. You saved me from getting a performance award way back when. I see you've been tagging over on STN.

I actually did have a smartass phone on Sundays tagging. It was tough getting service w/ ATT but when I did get the chance I Googled

"town created in 1852 to service the Pennsylvania Railroad."

Derry did'nt even come up on the first couple of pages. Yesterday I copy and pasted it to Google the same way and it came up 1st.

What gives?
