Good grab. I was outside most of the day but I didn't hear any KLR's rumble by.

Alright, here is the new TAG. Critter is at the base of the big tree pictured here.




Critter hiding at the base of the tree.



Clues:

Tag site is at the intersection of this road:



And another road who's # is the same as one of the most common commercial airliner (nicknamed Queen of the Skies). If this doesn't do it for you, the road name is two words: 1) a color similar to green & 2) a mass/body of relatively still water (unlike a river, stream, etc...).


Thanks to Tuffstuff & Doug for joining me for a little ride to place the new tag!

Great tag! Glad I got to help place it even though I missed the grab. Good on you for racing us to it!

First grab on with the new scoot. Intersection of Emerald Lake and Gilbert Station Roads.





Tag WSW of Charlottesville on a two word named road. The first is a word for a type of fortified structure often occupied by Kings and Queens. The second is a synonym for "stone". The road is a 3 digit road whose sum equals 16.


The dingus lies at the base of a a tree near where the road crosses the headwaters of the Mechums river. At this point you can step across the "river". There is not even a bridge. It lies at the base of the tree pictured and is covered with a few leaves.

LXDDLE, as you passed us this afternoon on 20 I thought to myself when I saw an F800 with boxes, I bet we just got bruced, and I was right



We had a great ride none the less, what a glorious day to be out, aside from all the salt on the roads of course.
Thanks to Jasonn and Starbuck for joining me in getting skunked

Wow, you went for a good ride today! Let's see who has heated gear or who will just brave the cold for it this week . I don't know if I will have the courage to venture out with no heated gear, maybe if I am feeling extra tuff one of these days and can't bear being in the office I will sneak out for a very cold ride. Haha.

I wondered if you guys were headed that way but didn't recognize the bikes. I was surprised no one had gotten it this morning.

I took time to do a couple of things at home and to mount the wind screen. I figured I was getting a late start.

Any homesick Eskimos going after the tag in the AM?
I'll be thinking of you while working horses for a client in Remington.

Since you all mentioned heated gear - I bought one of these

http://www.mobilewarminggear.com/MW/...20ref=ASJ09M09

a couple of weeks ago at Wayne's Cycle. As you can see it runs on a rechargeable battery pack. Same price as online and they threw in an extra battery ($40). It only heats from your lower chest to bottom of shoulder blades, 2 hours on high and 10 on low w/ 2 settings in between. Haven't tried it on the bike but have been wearing it just as normal vest. I think it works quite well but I've never had any heated clothes before. Tuffstuff and Randy - they have ladies too.
