Glad you liked it!

I'd never been back into the area around the lake before either. Waiting to see what devious spot you have in mind. :)

Igor came back to the house and had a few beer with me then said he wanted to hang out in a pond. I told him I knew where there were plenty to choose from.

I didn't want to make it too easy for Igor so I hid him in a guardrail close by. Igor hiding in the guard rail at the closest wooden spacer to the bike...



Tip: don't hide mascots where the spacers are plastic, like the one in the foreground. They are hollow enough to swallow a mascot and not let go. For awhile there I thought I'd killed another mascot! It took me ten minutes to get Igor out of there. I was expecting a Sheriff to drive by at any time and ask WTF I was doing. "Uh, playing tag games at 2:20 AM. You mean you don't?"

A little further back...



I hope he finds safe passage over the creek and doesn't get run over.

Beautiful area...I am assuming since it's dark in the tag photo!

I was wondering if the bridge had been tagged. Now I remember.

I was just down there yesterday. They were setting those 80,000 lb beams in the second span and stopping traffic for 15-20 minutes at a time while the truck carrying them sat on the bridge being unloaded.

Twohawks, I'm getting better(a little). At least I'm making the grabs during daylight hours. I would have waited until today to set the new tag but it would have been late morning and may have stopped the game on such a nice Saturday. I'm glad to see it's already moved!

Question

No worries...I just think about you dodging Bambi all the time.

Current tag a Warren county need to be local to know tag or will there be clues 5PD?

Lots of bridges in Warren County...though I am assuming it is Warren County ...

Thanks for the concern! Only saw one last night.

Uh, yeah, the lack of a clue could be a problem. You've taken your Canoe out there and listened to music afterwards so your assumption is correct!

I would hope it's been grabbed already.

Not by yours truly. Gave it some thought but didn't have time to make a grab and tag before I needed to be at work.

Ha. If I was going to grab it I'd put the tag along the fence row I'll be nailing oak fence boards to tomorrow morning. Always can use another set of hands. :)

I figured a low bridge under major construction would be easy to Google. ......

But if not I would take mt road to panhandle road and look there
