Nice work cyclejohn, that's the one! And in the rain no less!

There aren't many of these stones that are right alongside the road like that. The night I picked up the Woodland Beach tag I went looking for one supposedly at the roadside near Golts, MD and couldn't find it.

Glad to see that Bucky was along! Aren't you supposed to drop him somewhere for someone else to pick up at some point?

The new tag.

Here's the new tag.

This building is located in New Castle County. It used to be a school, but now it is used as a community center. It should be easy, but I'll post more hints if needed.

map linky no worky

It just takes you to the Google Maps page. At least, that is what happened to me.

Alright I'll talk to management about it. These people have no idea what they are doing.

The website is currently experiencing technical difficulties, we are working quickly to get things back to normal. We are aware of the inability to click the linky for the official google maps. These issues are a result of a technical outage and not related to the stupidity of the op. I will continue to post any updates here on ADVRIDER until these issues are resolved.
Thanks for your patience, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

More Hints.

I thought someone would have snaged this by now. Nice weather forecast for today, and the wind has died down. It would be an enjoyable ride.
Here's some more info about the tag:

On April 5, 1923 a frame schoolhouse located nearby was destroyed by a storm. Within two weeks the General Assembly appropriated $5,000 to construct a new school. Although the amount proved to be inadequate, P.S. duPont, through the Delaware School Auxiliary Association, provided the balance necessary to complete the project. On October 27, 1923 the State of Delaware purchased three acres on this site to build the new brick one-room structure. Construction began shortly thereafter. In 1949 the school was closed. On April 21, 1950 the property was sold for one dollar and transformed into a community center.

I used to rent a farm to hunt at the end of that road. Maybe I'll take a ride later.

Back on page 1

Tag, ya slackers!



Taylor's Bridge School on DE 9 a few miles southeast of Odessa. I rode down out of Port Penn, and it's a fun, bendy ride. Very easy to scrape the Road Thing's metal bits on the roadway.

Here's the historical marker:



Quite the philanthropist, that Pierre DuPont.

New tag when I get around to it, you slackers.

I wanted to ride down there, but I've had a busy week. I did grab the Maryland tag though.
