Are you suggesting a Ride to Glide to Jump to Eat? The hang-gliding place will never let us back
But it would be worth it

Yeah, I don't think they'd be too happy with that and they definitely don't need any more negative attention after today. I made an appointment for a flight/lesson and swung by there before heading to the tag. As we were heading out to the gliders an instructor and student in an airplane botched a soft-surface takeoff and crashed into a glider sitting on the ground with a guy behind it. Luckily nobody was hurt badly and the guy who got hit by a plane () got away with only some cartilage torn out of his ear. Needless to say I didn't get to fly.

Anyway, photobucket seems to be down for maintenance so I'll put up the drop pics tomorrow. I forgot to drop the crab off so maybe I'll test the waterproofing of my new gear tomorrow and fix that.

Ok, well my new gear held up fine, but the SV decided that a new spark plug coil gasket/seal isn't going to hold up in the rain and I had to limp back home. Anyone looking for an ugly naked SV with clipons that runs fine in decent weather?

Anyway, I decided to drop the tag where I originally wanted to but couldn't last night since it was dark.



Yes those are legs sticking out of the window



The tag is about 20 yards down across the road from this:



The crab is in the grass up against the back of the left signpost in the picture above.

Looks like a SMIB drag race is called for!

Wonder how many minutes this tag will stay in place?

After picking up the grab, I decided to take the tag further south. In fact, this is as far south as you can get in Maryland west of the Chesapeake. I decided not to tag in the park so you don't need to fork over any more of your hard-earned cash to the State of Maryland should you so choose. I went inside anyway as I'd never been here. The number of Confederate POWs that died here was astounding and the conditions in which they were kept were abominable! Walking in the lighthouse was pretty cool though.

There is no shoulder on the road so I took my bike over a wooden footpath bridge to get the shot.

Tag:


Crabby is buried in the gravel to the right of the sign.

New Tag, crabby is now located at a church 35 miles north of the last destination, still on point lookout road. This particular church (St. Josephs) was built in 1860 but the site has been serving morganza's religious needs since 1700. Crabby is in the flower pot to the right, facing the door (the one just over my left mirror.

Look for crabby here, on the right side of the pot (facing the door).
