Don't know what weather report you're watching, but the last time I checked it's looking like rain pretty much both days.

I made a Delaware Tag-O-Rama map on Google -- don't mean to step on your toes, sloburban, but I was checking out the PA map that skyclad does and I couldn't resist trying it myself. I'd be happy to maintain it as the official map, if you're cool with that.

Edited to fix map link

There is a roadside state historical marker about 15' from where I stood taking the photo.
You should be able to find it now!
I'm an idiot. I was looking for Dupont Estates owned by a GM executive. I just reread your first hint and googled Dupont and GM executive estate and found it in two clicks. You should have told me sorry about your luck and learn to read.

Thanks for the map , Jeff. When looking at it, it becomes very apparent there's a lot of untagged territory in the lower half of the state. I need to ride a little farther.

Here's the next tag

As far as I'm concerned this area has the only good roads in Delaware.




Considering there are so few of these around I doubt this needs any hints but it was orginally built in 1870 and is 52' long. I doubt even that was needed with google. Note this bridge has no openings in the sides. All the others I know in Delaware do.

Got it!

Hopefully this photo is acceptable.




Here's a second image with the bike's headlight providing additional illumination.

Known as the Ashland covered bridge on Barley Mill Road, it crosses the Red Clay Creek near Yorklyn in New Castle County.
If the photos are acceptable, I'll post a new tag tomorrow

You were there so I guess it counts. I do however think in the future it would be nicer to have day time photos. If it weren't for the fact it was a bridge you may have had dificulty getting any light on the picture. I think the night time snatch and grab may encourage ridding bikes in some places around barriers they aren't supposed to be in order to get enough light via the flash to recognize the back ground. Thats my feeling, how do others feel? Some of the other areas I have in my head are closed at night for certain.

Probably should just leave it up to the grabber, whether or not he wants to go for a tag at night. Lots of nighttime drops and grabs in the other states' TORs. If you tag a spot that's illegal or closed at night, just let folks know.

Yeah, what he said. And I think he's old enough to know better.

I make no such claim, you young whippersnapper you. I claim only enough age and experience to know better than some of the things I do.

The new tag

After traveling through hail and torrential rain this evening, I found this spot for the tag.


This is in Kent County. This area was once known as the playground of Kent County.
My wife thinks I'm crazy traveling out on the bike in such inclement weather. Some are sicker than others.
