Question

Aaaargh. I need a ruling on this. Only sign I found.

I won't post a drop until it's decided if this is legit or not.
FWIW, the road this is on was a ton of fun. 3 water crossings! Never knew that was there, and I've ridden around the southern end quite a bit in the last few years. Had a great morning riding, so don't really care if I get credit for this or not.

That is the same sign but by the looks of it not in the same location. I actually didn't see the sign you have posted. But by the sound of it you would have rode right by the tags location. So I guess if we are gonna play buy the rules -#1 - Find the tag and get a picture of your bike in the same location (as best as possible). The first person to post a found tag gets to place the next tag. If you get a tag, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose. you technically didn't get the tag. But I'm new to this whole tagging game, how picky are you guys concerning the tag?

Yea that is a fun road. I love just exploring the southern ends of lancaster and york counties.

I came in on the road from the 'east', with the creek on my right. The sign is on the left a few tenths of a mile in next to what looks to be a hiking trail. I rode to the fork and went both directions and didn't see another sign. I didn't think this one was right but took the photo there just in case. I'm in agreement it doesn't meet the true criteria.

If you would have turned around at the fork and went back east a little bit you would have seen the sign off to your left.

I say give it to him. He made an honest attempt and did get a pic of the original sign (one of them anyway.) The idea of the game is to keep it moving. IMO if somebody posts the correct photo before ddavidv posts the new tag then the new poster is the Brucer.

Yeah, I'd say give it to him. Definitely was at the right location, just couldn't find the exact same sign.

I'm cool with that, lets keep it going then.

Thanks guys. Beats me how I missed the tag sign. If I hadn't been worried about getting to the new location in my time frame I'd have ridden that road again. It was great. For my punishment I promise to return to that location in the future and ride the road repeatedly until I find it.

Since the community at large accepts my tag attempt, I present to you the new drop:

Easy to get to, but if you're coming from the last tag like I did and map out a route on the squiggly lines it makes for a great ride with some gravel thrown in. It was a nice morning ride that reminded me how much good riding exists in southern York county east of I-83. Picked this location on a whim in advance and didn't realize the historical significance until I was there to read the various signs. No need for a dual sport this time.
