Laugh Grab - Carvell Rd, Rileyville

The road that is really not the above named road. The grab location is the old gravel road before they put a new paved road in over 20 years ago. The two roads are side by side at the first curve past the railroad tracks. Tricky little clues.

The bike shot with the duck on the tail bag ....


Sorry about the quality of the pictures ... I forgot to put the memory card back in my camera , so I had to take the shots with my phone.

New tag in a couple minutes!

New Tag

The duck tucked in behind the second post from the end of the guardrail ....


And a step or four back ..... the duck is by the post just above my gloves ....


The wide shot .....


You will need to look for the gate ..... it has these old wagon wheels welded to it ....


The road the duck is on is a two word road. The first word is the same as the last name of a top aide to Tennessee House Democratic leader Odom. He is the person with the middle finger issue. The second word is where one would go to grind his grain. Note that google maps lists two different names for the road. I came in from the South and that is why I'm using these clues. The road number equals 16.

What a day, 3 grabs - time for

"All I can say is" the cold sucks and maybe more than work (which I don't have to do at the moment). I still remember back in the day when I'd ride in temps as low as the 20's (no problem) even from FRR all the way to IAD back 'en forth to "work", back before there was this "tag" phenomenon which is a call'in even as I keystroke this and 42 out. But I'm older and wiser now not to mention a little wimpy when the temps drop below 50 as far as riding goes. If it ain't fun, fa get a'bout it.

GRAB Cauthorn Mill Rd

There was no excuse w/the wx what it was and w/Bob calling me out to do a double tag as eluded to above.

Gotcha! Woohoo! My first one after self Brucing myself last spring.
Cauthorn Mill Rd .6mi north of Reliance Rd.
http://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=re...sz=15&t=h&z=15

The little guy wanted to soak up some sun after being couped up in that guard rail for a few days


Here’s the new location with the GS in the foreground. Note the tree that rises from behind my topcase. This tree is very obvious.

Here’s the little ducky at the base of said tree.

And camouflaged.


The reward for retrieving the little guy is a nice curvy road for you to practice your cornering skills.

The clues:
This is a 3-way intersection. One road's name is the same as the last of a famous Australian painter who was prominent in the Heildelberg School and who resembles fellow Advr and Tagger B Walsh; his first name is the same as the county in which this tag lies. The other road contains 2 words. One is the color often associated with envy and the other is what we look forward to after winter. The last 2 numerals of both the 3-numeral route numbers (which begin w/the numeral 6) respectively equal 8.

Good work with the clues there allonsye!

I'm still trying to figure them out...and I was there!

J/K.

What a nice day it was to be out on a bike! We found some cool spots for future exploration.

LOL - 'trader recounted to me his tag adventures the first time we met Hey! There are far worse things one could be addicted to and more detrimental. This is a very constructive addiction.

How are you? We've never met but I saw that you went through an awful time. You out of the woods? Still in PT/rehab phase?
