nice spot...

Thanks, Knollinger, for the memories! Used to skateboard, and the hospital's softball team plays on the field right next to the park:





Even got a little dirt in on the morning ride!

The New Tag!!!

And not to hold up the game any, on this beautiful tropical day, and to get back to the water tower theme, Here's the New Tag!!



I'd suggest you wait till after rush hour!

You got it, my friend!

As far as clues go, I showed the photo to my 15 year old son, and he figured it out in 3 minutes. The time stamps are the clues, along with the traffic on a major highway. Could have only been 287 at exit 10 of the Joisey Turnpike. Then street view shows the water tower.

Really, Adam, you complain they are too easy, now you claim it is too hard. Took less then a few hours for Knollinger to figure it out. Shame on you!

...just lay down in a shaded spot for few minutes, and get a drink of water - clearly you're dehydrated and confused, Barry
it wasn't me who was complaining - i helped decode it

I knew right away where it was but couldn't leave, then when everyone in the office started watching the World Cup I sneaked out.
It is almost as hot out there as it is in our oven room, it went up to 110 today by noon, that's when you take a stroll through the holding freezer at -10 just for a few minutes

You are right! It was hot out there getting the Blue Anchor! You had it almost figured out. But it did require knowing where the skate park was located. Sorry, Rob!

While we wait for the new tag, I'll give you my secrets for riding in this kinda weather:
1. Wet bandanna around neck. Keep wet.
2. Wet tee-shirt....stop at service stations when it dries out to wet it again.
3. keep the I-phone in a little zip-lock bag in your pocket so it doesn't get wet.
4. Camelback with ice and water....
5. If the bandanna dries out, just get some water in your mouth from the camelback, and spit it onto the bandanna while you are riding!
6. Shorts, covered with ventilated dirt bike pants
7. Dirt bike gloves
8. no boots

Yes, it is dangerous. I rationalize that it's more coverage then when I'm on my bicycle going downhill at 45 mph.

Other option is to stay home and just play with your computer!
