Cool! Hope its an easy fix! I hate electrical problems...

Make that two inmates who have the location. I was within a mile of the tag earlier but was in a cage.

I told ugly duck i'm late for work and i'd tag him later. He said no way is he sitting in my tank bag allll day. I said that's fine, we'll drop you off on the way to work. I headed southeast out of Front Royal on a 3 digit road with the sum of 9.

This tag was spotted by my mom on one of her drives in her Miata. ;)

Fog was thick this morning, but i caught the road i needed to. This road has the same name as the town you enter. Heading EAST on this road you will approach this sign about 2 miles outside of town.

Grab

Hume Rd. 2 miles west of Hume.



As I was stopped, a nice inmate who happened to be just riding by (not looking for the tag) stopped to make sure I was OK. He saw the duck and we had a VERY brief conversation ... sorry I didn't get your name...

The conversation was brief b/c quite frankly this was not a good place to stop. Several cars went by and were very surprised to find my bike on the other side of a blind hill - I needed to get out of there quickly.

And Tag

As I headed to the new tag location, I passed my house.



And about 25 minutes later arrived at the new tag:



The duck is behind the corner post closest to my bike in the picture, which is also the closest to the driveway.



Clues:
1. My user id
2. 116.30
3. Name of the small unincorporated town in which Melrose Castle is located. The tag is NOT in this town!! You just need the name.

That's really all you should need. Figure out the clues, do a search and you'll get either a street address or more likely a lat/long that you can enter into your GPS-a-ma-jig (or Google maps).

No worries, fragile_

What actually made it worse was when the other inmate was stopped on the other side of the road while we were chatting, creating a gauntlet. I emerged only slightly scathed J/K.

Good luck with the current tag. I tried to make it a *little* more difficult.
Anyone having problems send me a PM and I'll give more clues.

You never know when you'll meet an inmate around these parts! Nice tag!

You've got a PM.

Ah, I had today off but had family obligations to deal with...

Who do you fly for, if you don't mind my asking?
