Nice. We just bought a Jeep Cherokee so technically we bought a Fiat as well I guess.

She bought that for you huh?

Those things are cool! I like Mini Coopers too. The sign hasn't been there long. If you found the road, follow it to the end. That is where the sign is.

I test drove one looking to reclaim my youth in a GLH.

Sound was INTOXICATING, but it needs about 50 more hp to make it interesting.

So, I bought a SRT6 instead!!!

SRT6? I'm not familiar with any SRT6... plenty of SRT8's, though.

while we're only in our 1st week of ownership... we are very happy with the car.

Elsa and I will head toward the tag tomorrow morning if it's still there. If someone beats me to it maybe I can stash Elsa someplace and one of nearby riders can get her back into the game.

Target acquired!





I guess somebody didn't like the sign. No evidence of skid marks, just uprooted! BTW, you guys on the heavies wouldn't have like the road, it was full of pot holes and obstacles and made life interesting!

Oh yeah, Lower Poplar Street in Macon.

Next tag tomorrow!

Bill, you should keep Elsa until your next tag, no different than not being able to place her due to the tag characteristics.

Just saying.

Good tagging Jub.

New Tag for y'all-uns!

Didn't get to ride as far as I had planned. Seemed the weather was nasty towards the east and south regions of the state. Florida was still getting remnants of the storm. So I turned around and started heading west on this well traveled road and came upon this little gem. It appears to be an old jail cell, perhaps dating back as far as the Uncivil War. Anyway, there was no Historical Marker or anything around to tell us what it's significance is. Evidently it has some, because you can tell it's been refurbished and the grounds around it are kept up nice.











Your clue, find the town this is in and the tag is in the next town east of there.

I found it but it's about a 500 mile round trip so I think I will sit this one out.
