Here's how I found it...

Blake gave us the zip code. Google it. I figured it was in a park. Google earth is your friend.

I really hope this thing takes off. I know some of the other tag games took awhile to find a following so I'm hopeful this one will grow. Especially with spring approaching. Its a great excuse to go for a ride and see areas you might not otherwise explore. Not to mention meeting some other folks that share your love of riding.

To help bolster things, and since I'm without a bike for the next month or so, I volunteer to maintain an "official" Middle Tennessee Pixel Hunt Map. I'm still learning my way around Google Maps, but it's a start. At present it has but 1 lonely tag on it.

I suggest that whoever claims the tag provides as much information on the location as possible including GPS corordinates if you're able.

Man I wish my move was sooner! I'm still stuck in NC while you guys have all fun looking for Madonna's Bra-ship! Only 2.5 months to go!

I feel your pain.

Good job.

Those one way roads were a bit confusing weren't they?

How did you locate it?

I just rode around until I came across it. Probably couldn't retrace my steps to save my life.
