Here's the new tag folks. Honestly I have no idea how to give hints for this one. All I can say is that it's in the same county as the previous tag, in a kaolin mine, on a public road, near a white church. A sleeping giant in solitude. There are two of these dinosaurs so either will do. Street bike guys will want to come from the west, as the eastern route is a network of gravel roads. If you do come on a street only bike, the tag is only a couple hundred yards past where the pavement ends.

The clues worked for me and I found it fairly easily but I don't have time for a 325 mile round trip. It shows up real good on Google satellite view.

Jub, the pig would be perfect for the roads in this area. Go get lost.

Are these dinosaurs dead? Or can they still roam the earth and leave this spot?

Grabbed the tag!

Miss Piggy was so happy I took her out today! She squealed like the pig she is while we were traversing the mud and sand that this tag threw our way. It definitely was no place for a street bike. I decided to come in from the west so I could enjoy a little more dirt. As you can see, I ran into a few mud holes. Miss Piggy was delighted!







New tag tomorrow!
