So the best laid plans.... and all that jazz..

I grabbed this last tag on the way to Rural Hall this afternoon for work. I considered a very tasty bakery but it was too close to this one. I considered a larger than life embrace, that too was close. Maybe stop at a store that uses a blue and white propeller for its marque. I do hate to put tags in such congested urban areas. So I had heard of some belew smoke through the piney woods and thought I might try to capture that. Then there is the commode on top of a sign in one of those northern counties. Both possibilities.

Work ran long so both of the latter were nixed, for now. I had to take the more direct route home.

I do have a file tag from one of the corners of your map but didn't want to put it way out there. A very interesting place, nice riding to get to but remote to most of you. So that will be saved for later.

So I did find a place for a very pleasant garden and was going to use that. Then meandered a bit avoiding 4 -6 lanes as I could. I had considered this a couple of times but didn't think I would be in the area. Then there it was. My meandering resulted in a nice ride and I think a suitable tag.

Now folks I haven't followed all your tags and this most suitable tag may have been used before. It can stand if you wish or if you object, I have two others I can use. For now, it is this.

A fitting memorial for this weekend for generations of those who have given up their life for their country.

Thanks families for those that have endured that lost.

NCS

NCS... Great tagging!
We do not care about multiple tags at the same location... It's all good as long as there is a rude evolved.
Rural Hall.....Business...not much happening there...
Next time you are up this way give a hollar and we can meet for lunch. I work just south of rural hall off university.

New tag is located in my home county which was named after Peyton Randolph. You'll find the tag in the town once know as Liberty Oak and founded in 1809.

Hey Mr Hunt you could have just walked over and made that grab.
I rode up old 64 then old Liberty and kinda stumbled on the dam on my way up to Alamance. I made the tag on the way back. Close but I kinda liked it.

Did the detour get you? :-)

I made short work of the detour by not using it and using an unfinished bridge instead.

No I was just bouncing around. I was lost when I found the dam. Thought I had discovered a long lost structure. Little worried that no one would find it and we would have to close the game. The Tag last about 45 min. You made the grab and posted a new tag before I got home.
Fast and Futious Tagging. That's what I am talking about.
