You unfold it and you can see your navigation area, in this case the State of Ohio
I have that exact same map, but it does not seem to have "Big Plastic Chicken" in the index.

Put down the Google and go ride. Given jimjim's clues, I'd say go to Celina and ride US127 south until you see the big rooster. My guess is within about 10 miles of the Grand Lake St Marys you'll find it.

Yes, on the Tiverton tag I just rode up there and looked around. I think Meef is being generous when he said there were 10 houses there. Tiverton Center is simply a few structures around the t-junction of OH206 and a Coshocton County road. Took me all of 3 seconds to locate the Community Park sign once I got there.

On many tags I did in the past I simply rode to where I thought it was and looked around. Sometimes the "looking around" took a long time. Rarely did I scope it out strenuously on Google in advance. Part of the fun, I guess. But, I'm also the guy who does not use a computer phone - I ride to the tag, take a picture with my camera, then ride home to post the picture. Including yesterday, I think my last 6 tag attempts have been Bruced.

Later,
M

I use google maps to find an area then I go ride that area till I find the given tag. Sometimes I ride around (lost) exploring the area

That was one awesome taggin' machine.

You'll probably see it some more, still have plenty of file photos to use.

Thanks Jim, that was a nice ride up to an area I used to spend a lot of time in. Stopped by to see Annie Oakley's grave and on the way home stopped for lunch at our next tag location.

Make sure you check out the chewing gum wall and for god's sake don't you dare leave without trying a Cheese-Rite with everything!!

It's only 186 miles over there, the same as driving to the Indiana border.
