What, It's not cold. If it was any of those things you mentioned I would have grabbed it yesterday!

Tag

New tag....There is Rudy tucked in by the base of that small tree......



Now covered up by a large rock as you will see may be required given where this location is....



and from a little further back....the tree is right in the middle of the pic......



Now you can see why the big rock was required....in case of flooding.....which there is a lot of here...



A pic from in front of the bike.....



I know a few of the inmates will know where this is just from the pic....but here we go.

The first word of this 2 word road is the same as an NBA team that is in second to last place in its division of the Eastern Conference. The second word is a homophone of the first syllable of the city from which this team comes.

Have fun.....

I saw that.

He should change his sig line to..."the early bird gets the tag and the late bird gets bruced".

Way to go BR!

Grab!

This place looks familiar...
Bucks Mill Rd., Rt 610, Waterlick at the low water bridge over passage creek.
If you look real hard, and use a lot of imagination you can see Rudy on the top box!


New tag soon. I'm having a hard time coming up with devious clues.

New tag!

Here is Rudy in between the concrete bars


Covered up


A few paces back


Finally, the money shot
Hmmm, what are those two blue paint markings on the tree?


Clues:
The tag is set as close as possible to where an alternative route for the Appalachian Trail crosses the North Fork Shenandoah River, It is between where the Bear(s) paw their way across the river and where the Deer play in the rapids. It's a nice drive and there are views of the river, although not right at the tag spot.
Road number is...a great weapon for peace, competing with intercontinental missiles for mankind's destiny.
Simple clues eh?

Happy duck hunting!

PS: stay back in there and ride the gravel roads. Fun, fun, fun!

The road number clue, "road number =" should be "road number is".
I corrected the post. Sorry for any "more" confusion.

If by chance the clues are too hard, just say so. I don't want any disgruntled taggers.
