Yup I know exactly where this location is....but maybe it's too nice a day for tagging...better when it's cold, wet, and windy out..

Tag

New tag.....Since RD has had a tough time over the past year, and is in serious need of a spa treatment, not to mention some tail feather surgery, I felt he needed a small vacation. His older brother Rudy will step into the game for a bit while RD gets some medical attention.

There is Rudy by that small log.



Now covered up with a rock....



You can just make out the rock and log about halfway between the bike and that gate in the background..



Here is another pic of the bike from the front....the log and rock are off to the left in this pic.....



What a cool little stream crossing....I wanted to go through it but it was posted as private....




Couple of pics of the stream...was really pleasant here early this morning....





This location is on a 2 word road right at the very end. In keeping with what day this is, the first word of this road is the main ingredient in a classic Thanksgiving casserole made with French's fried onions.

The second word is the adjective used to describe a skinny person's leg after they've had 3 helpings of turkey and stuffing and still have room for pumpkin pie.

Happy Thanksgiving.

I got brused this morning. Arrived there at 8:30 and Rudy had already checked out. It sure was a pretty area and I enjoyed the ride over.

I did not see bike tracks anywhere on the way in and there where none at the turn around. There where some hunters in the woods close by but the rock was left as Beast Rider had left it? Wonder if maybe he did get kid-napped because you would think the Grabber would have posted up by now!

Strange the rock wasn't moved...If that's the case, I'd say it wasn't an animal that grabbed Rudy. I usually don't put things back like they were set in case someone else comes by. That way they will know someone/thing has grabbed the mascot.
Hopefully Rudy is going on a long bike ride and will turn up soon.

Hmmm, wonder what happened to the new guy? Could he have wandered away? I went looking for him o'dark early this morning. The sun was just coming up when I got there. And it was cold. Had to warm up my hands before I went looking for the new RD.



This is definitely the right spot.



OH YEAH!!! GRAB THAT DUCK!!!!!




Yep, that's the duck all right! Ready for adventure!

New tag for RD2



Here's the view from one way.....



And here's the view from the other way....



Clues:

Well, first of all, this location is NOT at the end of the road

The pics themselves are important, you must recognize the location on this road when you come to it. Remember the 4 ft tall stump with the downed tree next to it. RD2 is at the back of the base of the downed tree.

The road....well, this is another HOLLOW road, and it starts with the name of a northwestern state. You know, on the coast. That only gives you a couple of choices, but if you need more, this road is only a few miles long, and the location of the stump is at the top of a rolling hill on this road. If you look DOWN on the hollow, you'll see a stream about 50 foot down the hill.

Good luck, and see ya next time!

Nice to see it was a "Burse" and not a kid napping.
