Matt, I used to feel the same way you did, and even posted up protesting it. But ya know what? Technology exists, and is getting cheaper and more popular every day, and there's no way to police when and where people post.

I got a Dell Mini10 for $45 and carry that with me now. It accepts the SD card out of my camera, and wifi can be had at almost any library these days.

If I can be a player in the technology game, so can anybody.

I use it at Dialysis as well, they have a wifi there. So if you're tag hunting in Watertown, there ya go! Head for the Dialysis center for a wifi connection!

So that post office wasn't the tag. Damn I spent a bunch of time looking for cute quirky little post offices. I fail.

Hah! Glad you did so. I was just about to go hit a Dead End sign. I thought maybe that would be an inauspicious start, though so my next trick was to be railroad trestle bridge.

This could be a bunch of fun... I think I know at least 3 water towers I could hit inside an hour's ride or so...

Suprized none of the islanders have grabbed this. There's a water tower every 100' around here.

I like the idea of sharing where the tag is because everyone is eventually bound to ask. FYI, the original tank was in Skaneateles.
