I still keep hoping folks that claim a tag might give a brief description of the significance and an easily identified location. I know that by now most of the tags have been pretty well defined before being claimed but my connection is slow enough without having to go back looking through the earlier posts.

I know, the guy not riding shouldn't be quibbling. Can't wait to get back and be riding.

John

Good point! I was so frustrated with the new Smugmug linking protocol that I didn't give any details. I'm going back to edit some info into my tag above.....

Cap'n, you can look at the maps in my sig line and they are usually accurate down to street view as to location.
If they are not, someone will hopefully let me know.
When will you be returning home?

And now for my new tag. And it was a tough choice between several neat places I ran across.




The clues are in the Historical Marker next to the bike



And one additional small clue - notice there is a body of water in the upper left corner of the pic.

Forgot about that. Have to see if the links will work for me. Unfortunately about half the pics just come out as a white box with a red x in it. They are a little stingy with the bandwidth these days.LOL

Not sure but I hope to be home as soon as it is cool enough to not sweat my ass off while riding. (which should be in the next month or so, right?)

Wow Pepper I never clicked the tag link because I thought they pointed to the game. Great job on the maps.

Hey Jeff! Do you think we are saturated with tags yet?

While I was out today I picked up a couple of more good ones that are literally facing each other that I didn't use. If you want to add another active tag for the extreme eastern zone, I'll post them up, or PM them to you for review before a decision.

You need to find a dinosaur

Now that tha area has been extended, I know where another one is at

Playground

Children will have fun on a modern playground facility overlooking the Indian River Lagoon. Featuring swings, slides and a big green dinosaur

New Tag, reminds me of the show MASH that I watched as a kid. They had one on the show.

You need to find a dinosaur .... snip ......

We used to have a perfect one here - except that there would be no way to get a bike into the picture. The southern tip of Merritt Island for decades had a huge dragon sculpture with little baby dragons around it. The only way to get close enough for a pic was by boat because it was literally on the narrow little tip of land at the end of the island and on someone's property. Now its just a pile of concrete rubble despite some efforts a few years ago to rebuild it.

Back to the original question for Jeff... Any interest in adding another active tag that can be made a 2-photo tag? I can PM you the pics for review if you want. It's not that I'm so proud of finding the location because I really just stumbled onto it, but it seems like a pretty neat place, or actually two places across from each other. And it could drag some more players easterly over here to my neck of the woods.
