Yeah... I think I have it too... I'm in the middle of using street view at the towers location to make sure.

Maybe in the morning....

You're too old and decrepit to ride that far to get the tag anyway so go polish your Honda and maybe one day we'll put one on your doorstep so you can go get it....

$bob$ Who rode 315 miles to get the last one and was fixin' to leave in the morning and grab this one but got beat to it.
It would be really nice of you, if you would put one on my doorstep,,,,,
I might find that one. Think I know where this one is, but it's 150 plus from me to it and I might get lost going that far.

Hey,,,, I could get my son to borrow a bike and go get it.. he lives in Destin,,,,,, naw, that won't work, he'd just put another down the too...

BTW The reason you rode 315 miles is because you couldn't find your way back home

Hey... You didn't have to tell them that! Dang....

If Lance hadn't helped me out I'd probably STILL be wandering around down there...

Well... I had a good time too. I'm still verifying the newest tag... The Wee is startin' to grumble... It's runnin' outta patience.

ALMOST TIME TO RIDE!!!

I think this is it.
The empty picnic pad on the upper right?

You and I were on the same page. Here's my guess....

If they confirm we're right do you want it or do you want me to go get it?

Oger, spot on. I am very impressed.

LD you are a little off on the entrance. You are looking at portofino, the correct towers.

Yeah... It's possible Oger has been there. I never have and it's a bit confusing to have street view less than a block away and having to get an aerial then bird's eye view then pick the angle, find the towers, etc... etc.... etc.... (pant, pant, pant)

I'm off to bed to try and sleep. My mind is about broken.

If Oger doesn't go in the morning I might try to shake loose.

$bob$ the tired one....

I have never been there (the picnic area).
But I used to race catamarans out of Key sailing and have sailed pretty close to that area, but that was before those big towers were built.

Bob, go for it. I can't free up anywhere near enough time to get this one.

OK Folks... My day became FUBAR an hour or two ago and I can't go today.

I've alerted a friend that lives near there and haven't heard back from him yet but he might grab it. I hope he notifies us before he goes so someone from this direction doesn't end up with a looooong ride for nuttin'.
