New Tag.

This low bridge crosses the North Fork of the Shenandoah River. It's on a 3 digit Road that adds up to 6 and is a State Route. THe road is gravel with portions of pavement . That should be enough clues.


Near my bike is a large tree with 2 signs. Rudy is in the crotch of the tree.






A view of the bridge from the other direction.

Laugh I found a little free time this weekend...

Grab! Headley Rd., Rt. 600, Maurertown, Shenandoah Co.

At the low water bridge over the North Fork Shenandoah....



New tag soon

Rudy wanted to volunteer to fight fires so he decided to hang out at this sigh hoping to see a Forest Ranger. You will have to go to the furthest reaches of the

New tag!

Here's Rudy next to a sign...


Now covered up...


Now what does that sign say...


A little further back...


Another view point...


The sign(and Rudy) are located three tenths of a mile North of a lane along a county line and less than 500' North of a lane named after any person born, residing, or stayed longer than seven days in a red neck town.
Click on the dictionary link and read a little...

The road North(and South) of the tag site is a very nice paved twisty road. The roads to the North and East are great Dual Sport roads!

The way I came home.

Don't forget to stop by and check out the Carlsbad of America on your way to or from the tag. Good luck!

Orkney Springs Rd, Broadway, VA a few hundred feet north of and across the road from Deerlick Ln.


Here's Rudy on his post.


And here is the official grab photo


I came in from the south and left going north. What a gorgeous road. There are lots of interesting places along that road. I suspect we'll be back there. I'd play more often if it wasn't so far away.

http://www.mastersgames.com/rules/fox-geese-rules.htm

In this location the fox has just captured a goose by making an appropriate move. What a coincidence! The road sums to 14.

The location has an alliterative name. The name isn't listed on Bing, Google or MapQuest maps although if one enters that name (followed by ", VA" of course) all three mapping programs find it.


This is a photo shopped image that I put together when planning the drop.



Here's the real photo.


Rudy is safely tucked between the third post on the railing and the guard rail as marked by my coffee cup. The post in question is the first one with a reflective marker.


Here is a close up of the hiding spot.


Have fun.

Leon.

I didn't stop, but "Happy Pavilion" did elicit a grin. If it weren't so far away, I'd ride those roads more often.

After checking the boundary line, I see that the covered bridge and the balloon mural (which I couldn't find on Google) are both out-of-bounds for this game.

Sure is quiet.

No complaints, but no one has indicated they know where it is either.

I was looking at empty spots on the map when I saw this bridge. I remembered riding over it a couple of times and thought it would be a great place for a Tag.

The 'Fox and Geese' theme appeared while doing the research on the location. I had to change the web site for the game as there are other variations that use a different number of geese. It worked well that capturing one goose brings the 'sum' to 14. The two-word alliterative name is not related to 'Fox and Geese', but it does provide another confirmation once you have found the correct location.

Leon.

I thought I had it...then I remembered it had to be a two-word alliterative name.

You found it. You just didn't look on enough maps to find the place name. The place name isn't on Google, Mapquest or Bing, but it is on the USGS topographic maps. If you enter the placename from the topo map into one of the other mapping programs, it will find the correct location, it just isn't labeled on their map.

The Duck almost got left behind - He had started to climb up into the Guard rail. I had to drive to Middleburg for some phone signal to double check the picture. When I returned, I fished him out.

Goose Creek / Foxcroft Rd.





New tag to come...
