but they didn't sound anything like Pink Floyd or Lynerd, so whatever.

And dude, I'm not worried about your timing. We know you're busy.
Apparently finding and placing tags runs a close second to finding
and busting your chops. That was a joy. Only thing missing was the
branding mark from your backside cause you got rode like a broncho.

Of course, it was mentioned that maybe we should make a mascot
out of your mailbox and hide that. I told them...no no no. He's our
friend.

Oh you know me. I always look for a chance for a laugh.
Similar to a good golf game.

For as much as you all bitched about how long it took for me to place the tags, it is taking quite a long time for you all to go after them. Do I need to give more hints? I will do so, but only if you ask nicely.

Ok, I'm up here today, how about a "fookin" extra hint for a guy on a street bike that braves rain, traffic, drive-by shooters, rock throwers, rednecks, hoodrats, and all other assorted miscreants just to get to a tag location.l

The Mother is close to where Hammerin' Hank's road got started. The Daughter is just ESE of Grandma's house. I will let others chime in about how to get there.

As soon as I figure out the mounting points, I will attach a
parachute to the PC800 and grab the daughter tag. I got the
raft part figured out so I can get back to civilization.

Since they fenced it off, how do one get in there without bolt cutters and what is the penalty if one gets nabbed by the PoPo? Oh wait, Ernbo has one of those get out of jail free cards. ;)

There is another 2 entrances. I found on on the way out the last time I was out there. It is off of I-675 that comes around to the Moreland exit. The other is on Henrico Rd.

1. Give it the gas and start running zigzag patterns.
2. Call Ting
3. Keep running zigzag till you hear the PC horn.
4. Head for the river.
5. Ditch the bike and jump in.
6. I'll throw a rope from the other side.
7. We hop on the PC and get out of dodge.

There are no river crossings when you enter from Henrico or the 675. Do I need to do another show and tell?

It starts out innocently enough,.... but sooner or later it ends up with lacerations, bruises, a trip to the local E.R. and the inevitable police report and sheepish grin.
