Okay so , the Bantanm Chef "Fillin Station" it is!@.

Nice clues!. I was just lucky I happened to be off this morning and could run over there from Spbg. I think this will turn out to be more of a game for the retired population that has lots of time to "head out" in search of the next tag. However, I'm glad I got this one.
BTW...Bantam Chef has excellent food( don't tell your heart Dr you ate there.) Really neat memorabilia to check out if you've never been!
Give me a minute or two to get the next tag posted. Let me know if I playing this game incorrectly.

This is fun!

Yep, Chesnee. I was headed that way after my noon training class for work. Where's it headed, I got a fully charged iPod and a full tank of gas.

It was Chesnee and I'm headed out now to photo the new tag.
Bulleteer, that was close...just 18 mins apart. Wow this is gonna be fun, but I see I'm gonna need to carry a laptop with satellite connect. I may figure out how to do it with my phone but its so user unfriendly!

Not too close. I never left the house. I stayed here working on my Google jockey merit badge.

Beautiful Day!

Wow! What a fine day for a spin. Talked to a friend in Maine this morning...he was shoveling a foot of snow off his deck. Won't repeat what he said when I told him I was going for a ride. We sure are lucky to be here instead of there.
I got a late start, but had some good 'ole belly food at Bantam Chef and then over to Cowpens NP to check on some upcoming events.
Just got back in to see a successful tag.

Marc. we will have to get you an honorary card for the O.F.R.A.T (Old Farts Riding Any Time) group. It is good for occasional free passes that do not count against missing work. Note: this offer does not apply to "Google Jockeys"

Google Maps has a nifty feature that lets you "see" many map locations from the street. This feature is available for most populated areas in the US. They add to it daily. They just recently added the Tail of the Dragon near Fontana.

Click on this link for a complete explanation.

Spooky.

That Google street thing is skeery. Even this showed up!

THEY are watching you! I need to put an extra layer of tinfoil in my helmet.
