Thanks Guys... I may never be warm again though. I think by next fall I'll buy a heated vest or jacket. I'm just not as tough as I used to be.

I already have picked out the place that will be my tag... At least I think so. Gotta do some heavy thinking.

I rode over 250 miles today in that cold with nothing but a pair of jeans and a light jacket over a long sleeve shirt to keep me warm. Bad decision.

I'm supposed to work out in the gym in the morning dunno if I'll make it. UGH!!!

Congrats Bob! Think long and hard for your first tag. I see you got rid of the Vee and got a Wee. Miss the power?

Yep... I miss the power and my V was a really good lookin' bike as you can see.



But my Vee went to a very good home and I'm sure it's lovin' north Georgia and I'll get to go visit it whenever I want. I have a standing invitation.

The Wee is more what I was really looking for which is a true dual sport and the Vee is, to me at least, almost a pure road bike. Plus I'm pushin' 60 and the decreased weight of the Wee is welcome at my age.

Anyway... I digress.... I'm cookin' up a really cool and more difficult tag for y'all and I want y'all to pay close attention 'cuz the clues will be sneaky.

Don't change that channel!

Bob Officially has till 6:11 AM to post the next tag.


#6- The 36 Hour Rule. The Poopy Peanut Rule. This rule is designed to keep the game moving. If someone makes a Grab, they have a 36 hour window to post the next Tag. If the Grabber does not post a new Tag within this 36 hour period then the last Tag is back in play for a Grab (Steal).

A)If no one makes a grab after the clock has expired, a New Tag should be placed ASAP by the Exclusive Grabber then it's Game On!

B)If someone makes the grab after the clock has expired and before a New Tag is placed it is considered a Steal, the Next Tag belongs to that person.

Gee... Thanks for all the PRESSURE Jody...

As a matter of fact I was working on it just as you were typing your message.

Gimme a few more minutes and I'll start posting. Uploading pictures right now.

OK... Here we go boys and girls... I specifically mention girls because my wife was the brains behind me figuring out that the first tag was in Abbeville and from what Jody told me another woman that stopped by his shop told him where it was too but I beat her husband to the picture...

Anyway.... Anyone good with google, google earth, and willing to put in some handlebar time will probably have this within a day or two. Here is your clue....

In an area steaming with history, this tag is not far from the 1800's area known to locals as Falls of Gissendanner . With a bit of research you could discover that it lies between the tag I recently discovered, and the oldest continuously existing town in southeast Alabama. Between 1822 and 1833, this town south of my tag was the county seat of the largest county in Alabama, which then comprised portions of present-day Covington, Dale, Barbour, Coffee, Crenshaw, Bullock, Geneva, and Houston counties. Abbie, Omussee, and Chattahoochee form the life of this area and brought locals to this thriving but nearly deserted town near my tag. This tag exists as part old roads still of dirt, but easily passable, to a point at which you will discover the tag. It is a point at which you can shoot from either side, but only one from the intersection where shot #3 was comprised.

I rate the unpaved road on the Jody scale of difficulty as a #2 which is maintained gravel road.


Tag #2




Intersection

Wow!!! No questions? No comments? No interest?

Hey... It's really not that hard.

Do I need to give more clues or what?

I know where it is, but I am in N GA.

I am from Geneva County. Lived in Abbeville for a year once. Lots of kin in the wiregrass.

Also, Google is my friend.

I can't get there from here, though. I am sure that someone is headed that way now.

Good Tag!

HELLO KEWLBYME, glad your lurking here! Welcome back to the wiregrass(so to speak)!


I know where it is, but I thought that I'd let others jump in and grab it, to add a bit of dimension to this game.
Found out Some of our potential players are somewhere near ANF this week and I surely thought that they would have jumped up and went after this one, considering their work schedule !

If no one has grabbed this by Sunday night, I may have to rocket over and grab it on Monday!

It's almost been a week... I'm really surprized that nobody has grabbed this easy one yet.

Does anyone need more clues or has bike week messed us up?

I'm wanting to grab the next one and bring it down to the Florida counties where the riders are more active and will get it faster. You Alabama riders are too lazy...

Welcome to the tag JetWrench! I was planning on grabbing this one on Monday, but it appears that work has jumped up and got in the way again.

I have created flyers, and post cards to be strewn around town to peak interest. It will pick up when everyone decides the weather suits them. We don't have hard core riders involved yet, but they will come once they know.

Here is a copy of the post card that will start poping up around town.....
