Newest TAG

This should be a cinch. Take a Illinois map. Go to each city mentioned. Draw a circle around that city at the mileage. Where they intersect is our spot. Probably won't be perfect but should be close.

What time do you want me to be at your house? Have you done the map trick? How far from your house is the TAG?

Don't know my plans for sure for Sat. but it will involve motorcycles. I'll email you tomorrow night. Been to busy to pinpoint it, but it looks like it will be northwest of STL. So from your house to it will run you pass my house.

Road side tag

I'm pretty sure I can tell you right where this is. It's out in the country. Not in a town.

You could do it that way....









But you only need "3" cities to triangulate.



Who's gonna go get this?

It is east of Kemper,IL on Challacomb road. I stoped in Kemper Sunday and talked to a man that was out in his yard. He new right where it was. Got lucky I guess. Interesting story behind the sign.
