Sorry, I was in a mood and overreacted. I do that sometimes. I wonder if I'm emotionally unstable...

No harm done.

Besides, tuffstuff doesn't need me to defend her.

Carry on!

So I was thinking on my ride home from work today that it was bugging me that I didn't fully admit that yes I had grabbed the tag and placed the new tag on Saturday. I have No good reason why I didn't post up other than that I got busy doing other things and it slipped my mind.


I was going to come clean on this forum when I got home today and then when I saw your posts I felt even worse. I do apologize for wasting your time OldnoGPS, and I will not let that happen again.


I'm glad no one was offended by the Boner jokes, but I will keep it more PC from here on out.

The new TAG, at the end of a dead end road.




Located at the end of a dead end road (road became a dead end road in spring of 1995 when the floods that year took out several bridges along the Rapidan river in the area). Road is a 3 digit road number, which totals to lucky number 13! Road is named after a prestigious boarding school in Madison county (it is named after the school because this road used to be the main entrance onto the school campus).

Happy tagging'!


PS. Monkey is hanging out in the chain link fence to the left of the bike in the picture.

Had an extra hour at lunch and I needed to go to Madison to turn in property tax paperwork. Figured the tag had set for a while and needed to move but didn't have enough time to take it somewhere original.

It's all good! If I get up there before anyone else, maybe we can have lunch or something.

Definitely. That goes for anyone else coming to grab this tag.

It's amazing how many students I could sneak out of that school in my '61 VW Beetle, while waiting about exactly where the tag sits. There was a bridge there then.

That was the best reason for watching this thread. I got some great laughs telling folks at work about the adventures of the Boner Monkey and the old "scary as shit" dingus.

What a hoot!

Seeing as how the tag has not moved, and it's beautiful out today, and I have time for a little ride...I am going to go ahead and move my own tag back closer to C'ville.

New TAG.



Monkey is tucked inside the guard rail behind the bike.



Clues:

Tag is right by the border between Greene & Albermarle counties.
Road on which the tag is located changes names at the county line! However the road number stays the same; road number is 3 digits which add up to 9.
River in the picture is named after a form of murder, often committed by a mob in the form of a hanging.
