We'll definitely have to try it, it'll be a classic! And speaking of the lunatic , he's not logged in to the board ...just sayin'.

Since I'm an idiot and went to the wrong starbucks this morning, I decided to go grab the tag. I'll post the new one today, I hope.

Nice Grab!! Was really hoping a local would get it before one of the Richmond boys rode through the night and snagged it, not that I have resentments for them.......but come on, this our backyard. You're not the only one who had problems finding the right Starbucks, but scdddvr and I found him close to the Sherwood tag site. No worries about missing a ride, there will be more if I have anything to do with it.


Now where is that next tag?? Wifey went to work, I am suppose to cook dinner and do some lawn work. Lawn work will take 15 minutes and cooking is all CrockPot buddy! Oh yeah!! Bring that Tag!!

I wanna know how you can miss a Starbucks and find this place.

Been almost 30 years since I'd been down that road. Had a service job at the Navy Northwest site and decided to take the "back way" home. Popped me out on 17...... directly across from some potential tag sites for ya'll... unless you go too far south.... or take that route, swing around, and head back north (west??).

Well, for starters, I neglected to click on the link to the correct starbucks in Upstates thread. I went to the one at the corner of Independence and Virginia Beach Blvd. I got there around 0745 and no one was there, so I asked the guy if there were any more starbucks on Independence, he said there were two. He called the correct one, but the lady said she saw no motorcycle riders, so we called the one up further north, and no one answered, so I rode up to that one. Then I waited on shore drive for a bit, then drove back to the one I originally went to to see if I just missed them. Then I said to heck with it and went and got the tag, using google maps

Here it is

The next tag.



Clues:

I was real hungry, and this place has a distinctive landmark.
best pizza place in Virginia Beach.
Part of the name rhymes with fun and go. And it was fun to go.

Sorry we missed you, the lady working there had said someone had called about us. We figured it was TWKLR, no drama there will be a next time.

$17, yep kinda pricey, but WTF? Why not? Perhaps the reason I excluded the Eastern Shore from our Hampton Roads game.
