Sorry, poor communication on my part--the active tag is clearly the one posted by theothersean, no question at all about that.

I was trying to head off calls of "off with his head" with respect to Hulked Up, that's all.

Tag!

Here's the active tag:



I'll post the new tag before lunch. Hint: it will be EAST of all the previous MA tags.

No race.....the tag belongs to Boston. First to get the previous tag... not post the next tag.


Rule #3...
  1. 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.

Looks like the other person deleted the posts claiming the tag so if you didn't see them you would be confused.

That was me. I read "Here's the active tag", and off I went. It was a nice ride anyway. The confusion on what was the current legitimate tag didn't help.

Currently, there is no active tag

OK, new tag . . .

Here's the new tag:



Hints: It's on the North Shore of Massachusetts. If you were standing at the very end of Bear Skin Neck, and looked south along the coast line, you'd see it. (You do not NEED to go to Bear Skin Neck in order to get to the light house, however.)

I had hoped for a better photo of the lighthouse, but there were very limited vantage points (really, just the one), which was a bit disappointing.

The last bit of road to the light house, however, is really interesting, lined with mansions, and I mean BIG MONEY mansions. At the entrance to the last road there are a couple of hand-painted no-trespassing signs, but everybody and his brother was driving, riding, bicycling or walking in, so I ignored the sign, as well. In any case, right next to the no trespassing signs is a permanent sign directing people to a historical house down the same road (hard to see in my photo below, but it's just to the right of the no parking sign), so I think the NT signs are more wishful thinking than anything else. I just kept my speed down to a courteous pace (~15 mph), took my photo, and went out the same way.



Incidentally, the restaurant at the end of Bear Skin Neck is excellent (but pricey).

Good luck!

More beer

so this thing sat for a week, I thought quick blast to Petersham this morning then long run to a new tag, home and post. When I checked it out 2 were claiming the tag and I figure WTF I goto Barre Falls to hedge my bet. Get back and the rightfull tag owner moved it to the North Shore. No more riding for me today.... more beer.

Well, in all fairness, the Country Store tag only went up yesterday, and I picked it up this morning, so it wasn't hanging around for a week.

As for the move east, I have no particular affinity for the North Shore, I just thought it was time to move things inside the 495 beltway.

Hey, it could have been worse, my first thought was to go ALL THE WAY east, and hit the Nauset Lighthouse in Eastham, on Cape Cod. This is my FAVORITE time of year on the Cape (everybody else has gone home!).

I spent the afternoon at a Girl Scout family event, timed to coincide perfectly with the Patriots game. So I have NO sympathy!
