Yeah Capt. I hear ya. Ran a boat for 25 years in South Florida, I am sure you remember the days of LORAN and Omega.
Even used a Sextant once or twice in class, hated that. Enjoyed sitting next to ya at lunch.

Be well.

Very good, technically there should be a negative (-) sign in front of the Longitude. Just saying it before Savannah Capt. finds out otherwise he'll cruise to the other side of the globe.

Just kidding Hp, good on ya for getting it. Great looking new tag also.

Terry
Should be 31 56 10.975 N 81 55 44.168 W

When the GPS satellites go down, there will be a lot of lost people.

My bad Hp, sorry.

No biggie... It can be confusing and Google seems to be somewhat flexible, which can also be confusing. Example, all of these are the same place in Google Maps:

N 31 56 30, W 81 55 30 (DMS)
N 31 56.5, W 81 55.5 (Decimal minutes)
31 56 30, -81 55 30 (DMS)
31 56.5, -81 55.5 (Decimal minutes)
31.941667, -81.925000 (decimal degrees)
N 31.941667, W 81.925000 (decimal degrees)

But if you use both (-) AND (W), Google will either not understand, or put you in the wrong place..

There are probably other variations I haven't tried that will work as well..

Since I'm helping with the maps now, I wasn't going to mention the format since I know the location. I have several websites bookmarked that take the guesswork out, so no biggy on my end.

Good job Barry on the new tag!

Looks like I made a boo boo. I could have swore I looked at the google map to make sure that tag wasn't placed. I just went to place the new one and I saw it was already earmarked.

Sorry about that guys. I think Terry tried to warn me about this but I thought he was referring to a thread dedicated to murals, in which case, the Glennville Mural would have still be in play.

Found it. Post #4204

My bad.

Not really. I have an idea where I might find it though.

Guess I'll try and sort this out. Baxley and Bellville on today's agenda. Heck, there might even be a BBQ joint around there somewhere.

Next up, "Bond, Swamp Bond."

Venture down here to this hidden boat ramp in middle Georgia, but watch out for the critters. This is between Fireman and Jub.

The boat ramp is the tag


If the gate is closed or you can't handle the road in, the gate is an alternate

That's a different tag for a change. Looks like someplace I've been to in the past.

Ernbo was in da hood!

Nice! Did we say file photos didn't count?



Lots of cool dirt roads, and kaolin mines in the area.





Guess I'll try and snag it in the A.M.

Fireman, I would like to check out some of those Kaolin trails if you're up to it. My XR650 is feeling neglected as of late.
