Geee whiz Geeeze! one helluva Bruce! Where the heck are you? "not an actual tag?? I know thet bridge by sight. That's the old Artist's Bridge on Sunday River Road. Most photographed bridge in the state of Maine!

I don't believe this. I am up here at the Waterfront Pavilion Concert in Bangor now....on my bike...I may just have to ride out tomorrow and grab yor "not an actual tag". I guess that would get things all confused on this thread. Would thet be "not an actual tag #1?

Which way you headed, maybe I can catch up with you?? I am headed east...this bridge is just west of me though

Well, I think I'll grab your "not an actual tag" if I can do such a thing? The most photograhed covered bridge in Maine I think...








I have been on the road for several days and feeling a bit greasy...so think I'll slide on over to the Warf Rat Rally in Nova Scotia....Geeez.....if you check back here, PM me and maybe we can hook up while we are up here...

Uh...if I grabbed your "not an actual tag no 1, can I post up a "not an actual tag no. 2? like this....



And for a "not an actual tag clue" this view is on I 95 about 15 minutes south of Houlton ME where the interstate ends at Canadian Customs and bonus points for the lady in the white shirt and there was a group of riders there so I am not with that other bike in the shot...

Most should know it by sight but I can add more clues if needed.



Here is the real tag guys in case my goofing around on here is confusing....

Oh man. What a coincidence. I even got bonus points for a large lady in a white shirt! I musta been right behind you. This is a shot of Mount Katahdin which is the highest mountain in Maine at 5,268 feet (1,606 m). Named Katahdin by the Penobscot Indians, the term means "The Greatest Mountain". So if we were playing a faux tag game now this would be faux photo tag 2 I grabbed huh? I see you mention the Wharf Rat Rally. That's mighty close to me but not my kinda thing. All that wild partying and alcohol and nekkid women - and probably guys - I'm here for nature.

(GGG) that stands for Great Grab Geeeze! It's pretty wild down here at the rally for an old man like me but a true Geeezer would fit in I think if you want to show up. I am still trying to get over my Waterfront Concert headache I'll open an account for your bonus points....

Grab Backbone Rock on 133 just south of Damascus



On my way home from a Lobstah Fest at Shediac, N.B. New tag later or tomorrow. Been long several days riding home and split off from "Geeeze" about Abingdon. If anybody interested I will put up a tag close to home...

You guys have been keeping the NCTOR on the move! Good taggin!
Me and daGeeeze were following it when we had internet. I hope to go backup there next summer and explore more of the province and also Prince Edward Island. We were at the bridge going over there but just did not have enough days available to do it all.

Pretty big lunch ride It was about 11 days of hard riding and some days over 500 miles. Saw some neat stuff and Geeeze and I will both probably put up some ride reports but it will be a few days before I can construct that. Lots of photos from I-phone, two cameras, and a go-pro so a lot of work. The tag above was a fun ride through Shady Valley. I have been there quite few times but if you have not done that between Elizabethton and Damascus, it's a must...fun road and very scenic and crosses the AT at one point. Made an easy diversion for me coming down I-81 toward Ashevegas. I am tired now but will put up a new tag tomorrie...

New Tag

This might be easier to reach from the Northern access. Most folks going this way take the low road, this is on the high road.



Mtngal was ridin' with me two-up so it can't be too tough to reach and she took the photo. Following is a klew shot:

I hope you'll include a picture of your square tires before you round them back off here where there are some turns.

The trip was a blast. We hit a weather window pretty well with just a day of messing with the hurricane.

More great taggin from you Aarrff. I'll be spending a few days on the mower and more in the dog house before I chase a tag.
