...which goes to the New tag, here:




Edit: you probably want a hint....

I didn't get to put this tag where I wanted to, because it got dark, but here's one close to where I wanted to put it.
The name of this road is two words. The first word is the major part of a 4-stroke engine. The second part is a 4-letter instrument with nice ring to it.
To get there, go first to the hill named after a basketball- and baseball-playing famous motorcyclisit with his own race team.
The picture was taken standing on the border of Rockingham and Augusta county.

By the way, I rode 106 miles today, partially while it was snowing. I'll never be warm again.

Edit2: I enhanced the light on the first image so you can actually see the watering hole.

As long as it was YOU who took the picture, I got no problems. I bet you were feeling the lack of wind protection with the stock screen as compared to your DL1000.

Expect a new tag in the AM unless Mtnflow decides to play instead of hunting or sleeping. Those tree stands must be frigid!

In case there was any confusion:

I introduced a friend to the game. She said she wanted to join in.
Apparently, she didn't realize it would be cold outside. She's vowed never to hang out with me again, and wouldn't ride to get a new tag.

New Tag

By the way, the road this tag is on is not labeled on Google Maps. The number is there but the label is missing. If you use a GIS Browser or Yahoo's POS mapping you can see the road name as per the clue. FYI

Your boss got it too, h'ninja.

I knew where it was with the basketball ref. but google maps doesn't show the road with ring clue. They call it something else. Y'all have fun, 17 degrees in the morning. I'll be in the woods.

That does it.
I'm going to post the entire description and clues for my next tag now.
It will say,
"The location for this tag is cold. Really fucking cold."

Should be able to get some turnover this weekend. I am guessing at least three tags. I will update the map in the AM over pancakes, eggs and coffee errr tea
