They have obviously done some renovation since the last street view. My comment earlier about the mural being hard to find was because it's been painted since the last street view. In the current street view there is a big semi sitting in front of the place where the mural should be, but you can see the wall and it is blank. I located it by locating the propane tank you see in Jub's picture.

Not to be picky but my tag #305, Dowdell Knob is at 32.840096 -84.745209 which is on the other side of the park from where it shows on the map.

I happened to notice it while I was scouting for possible places to tag over on the good side of the state.

Ellaville ain't much bigger than Ray city.... Lol.

I started to tag Vienna, but saw someone beat me to it. Found one closer to home... Then stopped by an old bridge on the way home to take a pic. Not gonna use it for a tag. About 3/4 mile of dirt with some of it reeeeaaal soft.

I appreciate the lunch offer.... I flip to nights this week, though. I'll have the new tag up in a minute. I have a mess to clean up first.

New Tag

Seeing as I'd like to keep the tag "in play"... this one isnt as far south as me.

Look for it in a city where the county and county seat have pretty much the same name. If youre having trouble, try drawing a straight line towards my house from Andersonville.

that should help you literally narrow the search.




the trick is... you can see the tag from streetview on several angles. the catch is that the angle is different.

oh. and here is the tag that wont be.







but, hey. if youre interested in some adventure and arent scared of soft stuff, let me know, i'll either hint or give the exact location.

I found it but don't have time for a 350 mile round trip anytime soon. If any of you central Georgia folks want to meet for lunch and take custody of Elsa maybe we can arrange something.

Or maybe I should just stash her someplace and start a "Where's Elsa" thread

Hey Bill

Columbus is about halfway between Marcoot & Perry, Brody and I could meet up with ya sometime to get Elsa. Either that or we run down Ray City way and get the new tag, then hook up with ya.

By the way B1, great angle of the tower, might not be able to get to that spot, but that tower has some history, not all good.

That probably would be a good idea. She's not gettin' the love in the GATOR. If you want to do that, it would be cool with me, and more importantly, Bailey.

That being the case & me being a sentimental old fart, Bailey should do the honors of setting Elsa for the first time. I could hook up with Bill in the next week or so and return her to Bailey full circle.
