New tag


Off rt 40, ten miles west of Rocky Mount.



40 years ago, I attended this school. On to the RAT



Notice the giant shrub to the left

Now the next one



Look in center



You found rat. You should be facing 40 with your back to the bell tower. Rat is covered with sticks and leaves

Didn't have cell coverage, and forgot which tree the rat was in, so we had to root around a bit, and wait to post the tag, but we got it.

Good grab. I was tempted to go there today, always like to ride Rt. 40 between there and Woolwine. Went on a dirty ride instead.

This is right on the border for this game. Actually, you can see and hear the border from this parking lot. A lot of people will probably know what this is, but if not, this is a VA state historical park.



To find the RAT: Facing the tower as in the tag pic, go right and walk around the fence.



In the above pic, there are two big trees to the right of the tower. Note the tree furthest to the right.



Rat is at the base of this tree.



Behind the foliage. The stick is pointing at the RAT.

I went by the shot tower after work and picked up a Rat hitchhiker. Couldn't find a good place for a new tag on the way home so I'll do it tomorrow.

Heh, I've never owned more than one bike at a time before this year, and never had a dualsport. Now there's always a dilemma of which bike and what kind of ride to take. Best. Problem. Ever.

Nice grab! I thought for sure this one would sit longer :)

Here's the new tag. Nice bit of mountain road in town.



Rat is under the small rock at the base of the tree part way up the steps.

Damn I reckon Ole RAT is getting kinda lonely and wanting to go for a ride. For the love of Mike, will one of you FF's go get her before spring?
