Mud lake boat launch. 43.414612, 089.287074

That should be it, I pulled it off some mapping software that I haven't totally mastered yet.

Hey, I said I havent mastered it yet.
I thought it didn't seem quite right,
I can't seem to pull coordinates off of google maps for android.
I guess I can get off my ass and go out to garage and get the garmin.

No! It's no big deal, I was just razzin ya.
Is the spot I picked on the map close enough?

Perfect.


Totally baffled why this mapping app would come up with that.

I'm blaming it on the Xoom, I had issues with inserting a pic from smugmug into adv for the tag post as well.

That's what I get for cheating.

I like having the tags on a map so if you are willing to put them on, thats great. One problem is, not everybody has one of those newfangled GPS machines. Does anybody know how to take a spot on google maps and convert it to lat/long like Claybuster did with the Mud Lake tag? If I could learn how to do that it would be a heck of alot easier to just post the coordinates of the tag rather than a second picture telling people to ride down the road from that second picture to get to the tag.

The upgraded porta-johns cost quite a chunk of change. I heard what one of the contractors got but I didnt know the total price. I just did a google search on it to find out and you are right, you dont want to know. It was so expensive, one place on the internet was calling the project the Taj Ma Toilet. I assume Rest Area #11 across the interstate had a similar cost.

I like to call a building like this a "Piss Palace".
