Thanks. I had fun finding the tags and hopefully the other players will have fun finding my list. Tried to keep it global enough.

I typically throw a wildcard in the list in case something in the five is out of reach or just doesn't exist for someone trying to grab the list. I've had a handful where four were findable, but the last one just wasn't. Just grab five of the six listed. This is a fun one.

Makes good sense to me. I had four of the five previous sign tags, but it was going to be a longer ride to get the RR crossing sign as I live in a no RR town. Not out of the question, just didn't have the time to take off for a 3-4 hour ride at the time.

Thanks for explaining the wildcard use in this tag game.

Not The Grab

Not The Grab. Went for a ride today in 55-60F weather. I know many of you are not so fortunate. I was just riding along... when I realized I just passed four of my own five list items, so WTF, might as well take some pictures.

1) Wagon wheel. (still attached to the wagon!)

Two-Fer - Non-chain pizza place with a 'plastic man' on the roof.
2) "Plastic man" Advertising figure. Muffler men and similar fine, no statues. Think Bob's Big Boy. Lots of latitude on this.
(close up)

3) Non-chain pizza store/shop/cart

4) Population sign where the population is under 1000 (Pop 247)

5) Bell


Wildcard - Garage/yard sale (can be just the sign or the actual sale)
(I found a small road side yard sale - sign on telephone pole says "yard sale")

I know at least one person that got 80% of the way there but couldn't find a population sign or (believe it or not) a freaking yard sale sign!!!

Guess you'll have to wait until next Saturday to find a sign.

I figured on a weekend, the yard sale or at least a sign on a pole would be a gimmie! Winter sucks!

FWIW, I'm cool with a yard/garage sale sign that's obviously old and weathered. Some people never take those things down!

I was to the point where I was thinking about having my own yard sale, just to get a picture of it...

Couldn't get this one. Couple near here, but they don't list the population on the sign...


5) Bell
