Yeah, I didn't venture very far from home on the wife's bike. I've seen that thing plenty and never knew how to get there so I decided to explore a little. The gravel road was a bit scary the first go, but on the way back I got a little speed going.

It really quite sad. I could probably walk my bike over there and take a pic. But, I'm swamped at work and don't have much desire at the moment to go find a new tag. If it's somewhat nice this weekend and nobody's gotten it, I might have a chance to move it.

it's in no danger from me. My Google-fu seems to be really weak on this one.

Yes, your location is someplace in or near Frederick.

I've already worked that angle.

Just not happening for me. Like I said, my Google-fu is weak today.

(is it visible on Google streetview?)

No matter. If I were to try to grab it this weekend I'd be sniped since I don't have camera/smartphone anyway.

Just 'cause it's been hanging around far too long and I'm not all that likely to go riding, I'll mention that Frederick has a rather nice website.

Thanks.

I haven't found it on streetview but if I had my bike back and I had the time I'd know where to start looking for it.

That part of Colorado has simply exploded since I've lived here (30 years).

I haven't got my bike back yet and I suspect the nice warm gravel from the tag has turned to ice-cemented gravel under the trees now.
