Dingus is under the orange and white cone next to this bridge that crosses the south fork of the Hardware River on a "SAND RD" named for an
"Administrative assistant"

Yeah, I almost dropped the mascot in the river from that bridge a couple of years ago.

Not that there's anything wrong with that...




That's one shiny XT! I think that bike's from the future or something!

Grab on Secretarys Sand road, Rt 717 at the crossing of the South Fork of the Hardware River.





The tag isn't too far away. Pretty much directly south of the grab. The road name is a color the same as the name of a county just north of Albemarle Co. The second word in the name of the road is "Mountain". The tag is at the family cemetery of a long established southern Albemarle County family. (See picture) The monkey is under a brick at the front left corner of the brick wall.

I was there today- great day for it. I didn't do the grab- knew I'd be out way too long before posting the new tag...so grabbed a pic and went on my way.

Had a buddy visiting with me today, so with the weather being so nice we decided to take some bikes out for a spin. We grabbed the TAG on Green Mountain Road after a great lunch at the BBQ Exchange in Gordonsville, and then set out to place the new TAG somewhere on the return trip.

Here is the new TAG spot. We both thought that this would be a fitting spot for the little "boner monkey".



"Boner Monkey" is at the base of the sign post where my buddy's standing, under a rock. (Yes, we're childish'! )

Close up ....



CLUES:

Some people don't know Jack. However, if you know Jack and if you know where his shop is, then you won't have any trouble finding this TAG.

New tag is not too far away...

After enjoying an after boner smoke...



He's resting at the bottom if this street sign...



This road has been tagged before, but this is closer to the other end, where it goes from gravel to blacktop.

FnB, you grabbed that Saturday, didn't you? Come on now, the idea is to grab and tag on the same ride so as to keep someone else from wasting their time. If something came up or happened to prevent you, that's cool, but it would be nice to know before someone goes to the effort...

And while I'm thinking about it, there is a lady who plays this game too. Maybe we could lay off the "boner" jokes.

I can't help but feel partly responsible for Hppyfnguy's note above. If anyone was made to feel uncomfortable or unwelcome, I deeply apologize.


And now back to our regularly scheduled program.

I'm pretty sure I'm the only girl who plays this game - I'm not at all offended. I even had a good laugh watching the posts - especially the one with the cigarette!!!

But I do respect the sensitivity - thank you! No worries at all though! MAYBE I'll escape work for a bit today and go grab this tag :)
