CCCOLD gggrrrraaaabbbbb!!!!!!

Quite brisk today...gotta put that windshield back on!

The tag should be obvious by the picture. It's on Leeds Manor Rd. between rt 17 and rt 66.

http://www.dgif.virginia.gov/wmas/detail.asp?pid=31

Now I know why it's so cold. Someone left this air conditioner on.



Rd said he has been freezing his tail feathers off waiting for someone to come rescue him. He thought it was still November. I asked him what rock he had been hiding under and he said "this one"



A little smushed...



There was also a lot of sand down near 66. Luckily most of it was on a straight section of road.



When we got home I introduced RD to BFD(blue fuzzy duck).
http://www.fuzzyduckbrewery.co.uk/beer/



BD has that wandering eye thing going on.
Then they watched me post up...



RD is taking a day off since it's so cold out. I'll try and talk him into going for a little ride tomorrow...

Nice one Bwalsh !! I was skiing at Snowbird, UT today in near white out conditions - it was tough, but it droped about 8 inches while we were on the mountain - time to get warm - I know you know the feeling!!!

So Ranger Duck decided to take a mini vacation the last two days. Actually I couldn't get him out of the house after he saw the snow!
I finally coaxed him on the bike this afternoon and took him to catch a train. He has decided to try the hobo life.





And now hidden



Did you notice the piece of aluminum he is sitting on? I picked it up off the tracks just behind this rail car so he wouldn't get greasy so please remove it when you grab RD. Here is a better pic of the piece



And the money shot

Not to be picky or anything but...there are a lot of train stations in this tag area...or did we have to have seen the location before (or google earth every train station in the region, or...)

Wicked New Tag

I have redeveloped a fuel system problem that started the Swamp Thing bucking like a bronco...so...this tag is not so very far from the last one.

The tag is at an intersection with a road not the front and a road named for a battlefield. Duck is at bottom of the intersection road sign.



a nother view



The road named for a battlefield is the other side of the mountain road from the infamous top of mountain tag BWalsh posted that saw the 5th or 10th (but who's counting) mascot vanish.

Nice grab!
So whats up with Swamp thing? Coming down with the flu? Hope you got home OK and can sort out the problem.

Aren't you sneaky with your clues! I would go grab it but I'm not too keen on heading out in the snow in 19 temps with two worn out tires. Got the new ones in the garage but still have a few miles left on these.
