So far it has started every time it has sat overnight and all day yesterday on our trip around Lancaster, and all day today.
What concerns me is they really do not know what caused the batteries to drain in the first place !

I have been checking the voltage every day when I get off and before I start it in the morning.

I just keep waiting for it not to start !

It's British... Lucas electrical is tangled up in there somewhere.

So my pretty, you can't figure out my clues?
What do I and Yoda have in common?
What character am I playing with my broom?
How about a little fire, Scarecrow?

Anyway, here is another clue!



While you are there look at the Bald Eagles Nest in the Sycamore Tree right behind the building.



You can see an eagle in the center of the picture, and there are eaglets in the nest that pop up once and a while.

Ye clue is Greate, anyone should be able to find the St. Of course I did search for a lot of west stuff first.

I don't know. I got the Wicked Witch of the West right away, but couldn't figure out the "town that Margaret Hamilton's best known character would be comfortable at."

"Perhaps the best-known 18th century event in the history of the Township is the #@$%^&* Tea Burning of 1774, one of the five major "tea incidents" in pre-Revolutionary America, the others being Charleston, Annapolis, Princeton and Boston."

Why would a Witch be comfortable in this setting?

Well, anyway, the second clue worked pretty well. Unfortunately, the tag is almost further South then Wilmington, Delaware!

its a Green Witch...
This was a little tough to find...street view is there but its a summertime shot and all the houses are obscured by trees...hard to see but a portion of the Meeting house but other info on the web has helped me to pin point it...exactly 400 miles from me... actually the house i thought was on street view isnt it...as street view ends before you get to the last portion of that street...

But I would have liked the following clue better:

"It's in a town named after an environmentally sensitive non-wicked Witch!"

A motorcycle ride...

O.K., now that everyone knows where the number 35 out of 70 Friend's meeting houses is located in the area, who's gonna actually get on a motorcycle and get the tag?

And move it North, so more then two taggers and their wives can move the game around!

Clues

I loved the clues and found it pretty quickly.

All of this pacifist Quaker influence down here in the southern part of the state gives us a laid back view of the TOR games..... no hurry....

As opposed to our much more frantic brethren to the North.

Pretty much explains the difference between Philly and NYC culture as well.

It is the NJ TOR so you kind of got to expect it to be in NJ, besides your pretty much guaranteed to be able to take a 2 or 3 hour ride and not get bruced.

You think NC is slow try Kalifornia... I worked out there for two weeks and took naps waiting for the crews to get done what I had scheduled for them to do. I should have only been there a week but it took to in order to get the program done.

Better go for it John... Thursday looks like a good day for riding and I'll only bury it deeper South.
