Most definitely! That's how I found the place!

If you guys are up for more of a challenge I can make a few bearings and distances needed to find the next tag location, much more fun than it's on X road!

I wish there was a way to make spoiler text. So that normally the text is blacked out until you hover over it.

Right now 35 degrees, calling for snow showers/rain. Not ideal for rat hunting in Blacksburg

I rode up there today but didn't find THE tree. Found the location on Google maps and thought I could see it from the road without GPS on my bike but no luck. Still some snow on the road at the top but it wasn't bad riding.

Maybe my sh*tty drawing skills can shed some light on this...



Anyone up for a ride today?? I'm itching for some new dirt.

I didn't go far enough. When I put the co-ordinates in Google maps it looks like it is well before the fire circle and Jacobs Ladder trail. There used to be a fire tower in that circle.

The rat has finally moved! Is the new tag video a silent movie or is it just me? I don't recognize the site.

I didn't want people so close to the jail to see me talking to myself. It should be a YouTube video.
