Thanks. I already had the map updated after the drop was made. I appreciate it the consideration though. Seems like wiggus is still around, as he's been adding pictures to the map.

It's 10:15 AM, and the sun has raised temperatures to 20F in the shade here in the Cumberland Valley as we wait for the drop....

Good luck w/that. I have had Grape placed on heavy surveillance. As in satellite tracking, high altitude helicopter, and extensive ground recon personnel.

He won't even be able to drop a deuce, let alone a tag w/o my notification.

***New Tag***

Keeping the theme alive (kinda).



The covered bridge that stood here was built in the 1889. It was damaged by arson twice in 2002 and subsequently dismantled. I used to jump out of the "windows" and into the stream in the 1980s.

Here are some more pics from today and some old pics from when the bridge still stood.









The actual bridge from roughly the same angle:



These are the "windows":



Happy tagging!

Jeez! That's 211 miles, 3 1/2 hours each way from my driveway, plus allowing for snow and ice over Sideling Hill on the turnpike and on I-70. But if those are clear and dry, hmmmm.....

Oh, it's sleeting! I think I'll wait for another day.

What a shame about these disappearing covered bridges.

Of all the stupid places my tax money ends up going, why can't it be used to maintain these beautiful bridges.

The reason they lasted so long was the fact that they were covered. It's a damn shame.

Nice drop Grape.
