New tag location is along WV 16 in the same county where the Grave of Mike Fink is located. The grave has a historical marker so you can cross reference that thread to get the county.

Grab!



Calhoun county courthouse, Grantsville, WV.

Route 16 from Grantsville to Harrisville has got to be one of the best stretches of road in the state!

Rt 16 is a great ride through there. When I was on my way home from dropping off the tag, I didn't get stuck behind anyone driving slow which was nice. I did however catch up to a guy driving a focus in Ritchie county that thought by my catching up to him he should start driving recklessly. He was pushing hard through the turns, squealing his tires and going wide in blind curves. Finally he pulled off and waved me by. I'm not sure what he was trying to prove but I was horrified at how irresponsible he was.

I see that stupidity a lot if I'm on the Superduke or in my Acura.
I slow way down, pull over or turn off. Not going to have anyone think I'm "racing" them.

New tag.







This courthouse was designed in the Victorian Romanesque style by J. Charles Fulton, who designed courthouses in Barbour County and Randolph County. Built in 1899 by contractor John B. Conn, the courthouse features stone carvings by James Grant. The courthouse replaced a previous courthouse that was destroyed by fire in 1898.

James Caldwell, the first known landowner in what was to become this county, owned 20,000 acres in the area sometime prior to 1787. This county was created in 1845 from parts of Harrison, Tyler, Ritchie, and Lewis Counties.

New tag! Double points if you get a Gabby in your tag pic. This county neighbors the county from the previous tag, and is one of the counties from which it spawned. this county also has one of its boarders on the Ohio river. Hopefully this one wasn't tagged before... If it has slap me and I'll change it.

Ohhh and pnoman... I told gabby you were probably out to grab this one with your scooter tonight so we stopped at WiFi to upload my pic just in case! Well... This one is definitely not out of your reach for tomorrow :)

You're a mind reader!! That's the one I was going to swap with Doddridge Co. They put up a new historical marker in front of this new tag because the old marker was one of the 3 worst in the state. I was going to get a photo, but now I might have to get it when I GRAB the tag. Bwaa, haaa, haaa... (That's scooter talk for "when I can find another day to slip away unnoticed".
