Look on the bright side; it was a great day to get out for a ride.

Seriously, I would not have even attempted the tag but for a near-perfect storm of opportunity, a break when I could escape for an hour or two, having driven past that church dozens of times in the last few years, etc.

This schoolhouse was relocated to this location. The town no longer exists. I blocked out the name, that would be too easy
Riddle me this: "This historic school house is like a doorway to another time."

Portal School 22



A BIT OF HISTORY:
Built in 1890, this one-room schoolhouse was constructed south of the township of Portal, Nebraska, in Sarpy County. The town of Portal was abandoned in the early 1900's due to frequent flooding. Most of its residents moved to nearby Papillion. The Portal School was still utilized for many years and was the last rural eight-grade school to close its doors in Sarpy County. In 1995 the old school building was moved from 114th and Giles to 242 North Jefferson Street in Papillion and placed next to the historic Sautter House.

Easter Sunday tag

This little retired P.O. is located within 300 feet of an abandoned rail depot that remains in its original location. I have blanked out the P.O. name to keep this from being too obvious.

This tag is at least 30 straight-line miles from the previous (Portal School) tag, and is in a county that has not previously had a tag within its borders.

Sorry about that. Had posted it from my phone. Will amend my earlier post to give the location.

I saw you (PJ) on Sunday. We were going from my parent's house to the Millard Road House for their Easter buffet. At the light on 168th & W. Center. Hard to miss a guy on a ZZR in a blue 'stitch I had a funny feeling you were out getting tags. LUCKY! What a nice day it was!!

I found PJ's Gretna tag by zooming in on the pic and reading "Road Burners Clubhouse". With a little googling of "Road Burners" I found the location.
