I found a song by warrant with the same name. "I know a secret down at Uncle Tom's Cabin oh yea, I know a secret that I just can't tell." Is forbidden one humming this tune as we speak...? O.K. I even tried "any" Uncle Tom, "A" Uncle Tom. Just give me a $%^&*@ Uncle Tom! I've found an Uncle Tom's Kwik Stop in Pine, a vacation rental in Williams, a sex site that makes no sense, something in Herber and Uncle Tom's moving company in cave creek that looks suspicious as hell and maybe sneaky enough for he whose name must not be mentioned... Must, locate, tag... Brain hurts, must, lie, down...

If he was traveling on the pavement and did an out n back, that's 3.5 hours. Take half that 1.75 hrs. at 65 mph, that's a max distance of 115 miles from the previous tag. Of course there are a bunch of other variations to consider but that at least gave me a better idea of where to look since the clue was pretty weak. That could be west all the way to where the 60 and I-10 connect or south nearly to Marana... both of which would be at the outermost boundaries of the game... typical of Cindy.
The scenery looks typical of what you would find around Tonopah but I've yet to find a little square with black circles on the roof via any aerial program and I have not found any landscape similar to the two little peaks in the background.
That's a lot of ground to cover. Do you think his "before it gets hot," has any significance or relevance? I've noticed that he uses his "bleep" experience, like the Bull Dog one was straight from the "Bleep". So maybe it's something familiar to him, I'll go scour the "Bleep" website for clues. We, must, locate, tag...

I figured if we pooled our thoughts, it might help somebody figure out where this thing is.

I took that at face value meaning it was somewhere south or east where it's about to get too hot to ride pretty darn soon.

I think the tagger should post another clue.

Wow short attention span, it's barely been 24 hours :)

Well, I'll throw you dogs a bone.



New clue... A dirty old man named Tom built his house to get a good view of the Tits.

Take your passport if you want to make it a real adventure :)




one more hint... it's outside the 50 mile ring and firmly in the Starbucks free zone :)


The red tags are mine, yellow tags are ones I dropped off. Who shall unseat me as the fool with the most tags?
