If I'm right about the tag location, there's an admission fee for non-county residents. Although it seems hit or miss as to whether there is somebody there taking money. I don't think the wifey will be home in time to make the grab. I doubt they charge anything this late in the day.

Yes, I should have mentioned that. ET has a habit of having lunch before a tag, and paying admission to non-tag sites. . ..

I guess I omitted because there was no one to collect a fee when I placed the tag.

Happy tagging!

Yeah, but I don't know of any good restaurants around there. Although there is a Hooters on the way

Also, I suck at replying to PM's. Sorry for the dupes to anyone!

Wasn't sure he was still there - he was well buried under the leaves

Ok - so Ali was cold .. he wanted to warm up. I figured some wine might warm him up, and on the way we found a great hiding spot. So we went to a nearby WINERY ... not far from the grab location ... and after we got some wine, we went ahead and doubled back a bit to the hiding spot Ali said it was PARADISE.

This hiding spot is off of 645 on a road whose three digits add up to 12.

(google maps doesn't list the 3 digit code of this road - so here's another clue - Socrates might not like the name of the park that this road leads to).

As soon as you turn onto the road whose three digits add up to 12 from 645, look for the following location on the right... its about 1/4 mile.

The gate should remain open and unlocked as I've never seen it locked. Ali is tucked away by the front left leg of the tower in the above pic.

Here:

Enjoy... great area to ride as there are plenty of twisty roads around the area.

Glad you looked before you left work! I had no paper with which to leave a Brucing! If it is any consolation, I was stuck behind a school bus all the way down Clifton Rd
The hint about the Hemlock poison I actually did get! For some strange reason, I remembered that from an English class and the fact that I have actually been to the park. Took me a few minutes to cull the pertinent information, though.
