I was under the impression that the old facility was still open. I could be wrong though......I haven't been to the old downtown building in a long time.

I'll drive by and check but I don't think it is. I think everything was moved to the new facility.

Going to go get the new tag soon. Plan on having it up by 3:00pm.

Sorry FatDog! I saw it right when jumper5392 posted it. I figured it would be an easy tag for someone to get, so I went for it right then.

Dang that was fast.

Good job Fireball.


I can see this is going to be a very competitive game. He who hesitates is lost.

OK, here is the next tag!








This is a Marvelous water tower that was built in the early 1900's. About a half mile from here are some of the openings to some of the mine shafts. Debandi has done a RR on these before.

Notice the ladder coming out of the top window!



Clues:



This should get you there!






Will see some of these!






Almost there! Careful, this is a switchback.



Taken from the same spot as above photo.







Picture of the mine shaft.

That should do it! I hope whoever gets this enjoys the ride there.

Excellent placement, Fireball! However, you may have given away a few too many clues. On the other hand, I knew where it was as soon as I saw the pic. I guess I've been around

I was afraid of making it too difficult. By the time I finished the post, I felt it might be too easy. That's ok though, it's all about the ride.

GREAT tag location, FireballR

You've had a long day, my friend. The Marvelous location has many things yet to be discovered.

I have edited the first post in the Alabama T-o-R thread to include a link to the Alabama T-o-R map. Jumper is doing a great job with it.

Also, Jumper5392 has agreed to take over as the boss of the Alabama Tag-o-Rama. He will make the final determination if there should be any controversy about a tag. I will jsut sit back and watch (and try to grab tags when I come south again).

Way to go Jumper5392! Hopefully no big controversy here.
