Laugh Mass Tag-O-Rama

Okay let's kick his thang off....mmkay

Rules are easy...
  1. Find the tag and reproduce the photo (as best as possible). Take the tag to a new location, get the photo and post it here. Give a few hints so the next person can figure out where the tag is located.Make the clues clear and easiiy understood.
    • Try to place the tags in interesting locations, maybe a bit of history that can be found down some nice twisties.
  2. Tag must be: a) findable & b) not placed on a dirt road.
    • Maintained gravel is OK, but make sure to let folks know that gravel is required to get to your tag. We don't want to exclude those who don't like to get dirty.
  3. The first person to post a found tag gets to place the next tag. If you get a tag, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose.
  4. One tag at a time. File photos are NOT permitted. You gotta ride to play this game.
  5. Your bike has to be in the TAG picture.
  6. Time limit to post a new tag is 48 hours.
Remember, you gotta be quick. Don't make the clues difficult, because it will come back and bite you in the arse. Also, bring your "A" game cause someone will have a tag and post another while you're thinking about eating breakfast.

Finally,

If you wanna play, you gotta ride.

READY, SET, GO!



(New Hint idea! If you want the hint, select the following text to offset color, if you want a bigger challenge and want to try to find it w/o a hint, leave it be.)


Hint: Simeon Lowell opened this shop in 1793. It is now on the National Register of Historic Places. Good luck, shouldn't be too hard to figure out with the help of the internets...



Happy hunting!

-Doug

You probably won't be the only bike in the yard at this destination
Stop in for a Cappuccino, or a helmet...I scored some gloves.

Planned to go oto Moto Market in Acton, MA this morning to pick up some wet/winter gloves: Scott Warrior Snowmobile gloves, $65. But first I headed farther West to pick a new tag. The place was infested with V-Stroms (4: 3 shown): two from the Worcester area headed to VT for the day, and one visiting relatives from Brooklyn, NY.



My first thought was to make the summit of Mt Wachusett the new tag. It was clear, so you can see Boston (where I live) and I had two great clues.

1. Henry David Thoreau set off on a trip to this location on July 18, 1842.
2. He wrote a poem, with two lines the clue:

But special I remember thee,
(Location), who like me
standest alone without society.

But, the gates don't open until 9, and they charge you $2 to take the road to the top. I wanted to include the KLR riders also, so I moved on. [Boston skyline under arrow].



So, here's the new tag to bagg. Hint: it is in the same town as Mt. Wachusett.



There are lots of nice dirt roads in the area, but this is near the intersection of two state numbered roads.
