And I did go all the way out to the Rod and Reel pier.
It will be one of the replacement tags when I do the whole writeup tomorrow.
I'm ready for bed!
Sfront, OUT!

Might as well start with the pix.
Left the house in Deland just after 4:00 am.
Picked up my first tag at the FR 88 Shooting Range just after 5:00
Got the bonus too!



My eyes are closed because after blinding myself with the flash four times prior to
actually getting all the required elements I finally got smart!
Range, bike self, and weapon.......Bonus complete.



Just the other side of Ocala on CR326 it got REALLY foggy and cold.
Rain gear put in use.
The farther north I went, the thicker it got.
Visibility down to less than 50 feet in spots. Did I say it was wet??
Next stop, Dakotah Winery, just outside of Chiefland.
Not open at 6:45am............



I have to come back this way so I'll see if I can't get a better picture then.
Next stop, Four Corner tag number one.
Horseshoe Beach.....about 7:30am




There must have been a hundred hunters/trucks down every side road.
The fog was so thick on CR351 that it seemed like it was raining.
Back to the Dakotah Winery......
With a little daylight I could see the truck in the original tag picture.
Best I could do with the gates closed.....



South to Four Corners tag number two. The Gamble Plantation, Ellenton. ~12:45pm





I actually made a side trip beforehand to get a replacement tag.
Added about an hour to the trip.
Got some fuel and started looking for some food.......
Ended up at a previously tagged spot in Bowling Green, Smokin' Joes BBQ.



Soon to be joined by some locals........



John and Paula........affectionately know hereabouts as sanjoh and sanpau.



My twenty minute lunch stop turned into an hour...no worries, I'm making good time.
I had checked the forum at 3:30am and saw that Larry Gee had picked off two tags
that I had on my route but there was still another out there to be had.....
John
says.....don't bother!
Already been done......oh well, onward to Four Corners tag number three, Vero.

This seemed to be the longest stretch of the trip although milage wise its not.
Jaycee Park, Vero Beach......watch out for the local drivers....they suck.



Time for a few more local tags.......the ones Mark1304 didn't get yesterday.
I mean come on! They've sat forever and you decide to pick them off on a Friday.
First off is the no longer there Blockbuster, 142 Malabar Rd.
I asked a few of the local folks which empty storefront it was and four out of five
peeps said it was here in the corner.
I'll need a ruling on this one.
They've completely remodeled the whole strip mall.
The gums all removed from the sidewalk although you can tell where it was!



Next stop, Cocoa Village Playhouse. I'm not telling the wife about the area.



Nice ride up Forrest Rd which turns onto US1.
Great ride up along the river to the next tag.
The Enchanted Forest Sanctuary on Columbia Blvd.
Shadows are getting long and I've still got to tag Flagler!



North it is, as the sun goes down.
Four corners tag number four, the Flagler Pier, around 7:30pm.



And now just a short forty five minute run to the house.
690.7 miles for the tour. GPS had it as a little more, but who's counting..




Replacement tags up next!

I'd like to introduce a new player to the game, AG Streak. he's been on ADV for a long time but has never played tag .
He lives in Pinellas county like me so hopefully well get a few down our neck of the woods so you central state guys & gals will have to head our way for a change....

He's desperately trying to get the Patterson park tag uploaded from his phone. I told him he would get bruced if he doesn't get it on quickly...

Bonus tag for the FR88 Range, bike, self and weapon requirement.
The Rod and Reel Pier.
This one kinda adds an exclamation point if you get it while doing the Four Corners.
This was my one hour side trip.

Replacement tag for the Defunct Blockbuster in Malabar.
Volusia Bar boat ramp. Airboat owners favorite.



I'll remove this if anyone cries foul over the Blockbuster location........
