I totally missed this story on the news. This is total proof that the gene pool needs a little bleach. I heard a person once say that we need to remove all the safety restraint items to allow natural selection to take its course.

And now I believe it.

Tag Found




This would be the East View Cemetery wedged in between 3rd Ave and 4th Ave off Memorial Drive in the East Lake area.





And the coordinates....

And the New Tag...

Right down the road from the last tag...a few more miles...is a park in
the city of Decatur. It's a tiny little park. Named after a tree, this park
proves that less is more. People walk dogs in the area, so make sure
they don't syca them on you.




The park is located right next to the Marta rail line.





There is a rock outcrop embankment.





And below this wall....

Walking is great exercise. All since it's all flat, you could actually push your bike and still get the pic and tag AND get one heck of a workout. I agree, fantastic idea. Woohoooo. And it's a gorgeous day for bike walking.

Well O.T.P. in the Wild West of this notable county, the skies buzz with fixed and rotary wing aviators who like it tiny.
The two rocky rockettes are here at the base

I may need to scrape off the layer of dust on the Strom and go get this.

Tag Found & hmmmmm

OK. The tag was found. Cool place



The is the Cobb County Radio Control field (CCRC) at the Sports Aviation
Complex on Pitner Rd in Acworth. Paved runway and wide open field for
flying your favorite tiny aircraft.

The coordinates for this location is:
34.013501,-84.725865


I was unable to get my usual compass snapshot because of this little
critter:



I'm a city boy. I'm used to squirrels, rabbits, dogs and the occasional deer.
But when I'm comfronted with something new and out of the ordinary, like
this fat rascal on tiptoe coming out of the woods, I tend to forget little
things like coordinates, the way home, a bathroom.

And it was a fat rascal too.

Wonder how they cook up? Is this a BYOB gathering we have coming up?
Bring Your Own Bar-B-Q?

How many bikers could a woodchuck feed if a woodchuck could feed bikers?

It's an awesome ride out there. Nice places to stretch out with nice curves to fall into. Beautiful area. I didn't get to enjoy it to it's fullest since I was riding in the rain, but that will be a nice area to get lost in and explore. Good find.
