Tag photo and what he was hiding behind:


Curse of the Crab? Here is proof!



For the new tag Crabby did not travel far and here is the tag photo to take. The bike is on the road in the background, visible straight above my helmet:

Across the street are two posts and Crabby is behind the base of the southern one, shown here on the left:


Some clues:
Listen to James Taylor and Mark Knopfler's song "Sailing to Philadelphia" while charting the place:

The Calvert Crest of Arms faces the pretty boy.

A Rule is involved and it relates to the number of States.

This stone is a replacement erected in 1902 and has a current survey marker on the top.

Had a nice talk with Bruce, who's land the crown stone is on. He rides a KTM 990 but isn't real active on ADV.



What am I supposed to do with the two pence coin that was in with the crab?

Tag. Go through Catoctin Mountain Park, and keep going up. You'll get to the tag.

Maine this way. The crab is at the base of the post with the white blaze, behind Heather.


Georgia this way. The crab is at the base of the post with the white blaze to the left.


Bike hasn't moved.

I met Bruce dropping the tag and yes, great guy. We sat and talked for at least a half hour.

Nice grab Bikehigh

I would have beaten your ass, if it wasn't for a Triumph technicality!
Stalling, stepper motor/shaft problem? Or a software issue?
Either way you win! Next time amigo!
