I took the pic from the front of the building, they were working on the back & had the road blocked off.

I think it's the wrong building but I'll let Monte make that call.

Just getting ready to go after the new tag but I think they're right. The foundation looks different and there's a chimney on the side I don't see in both photos. Rats!

you do that, meanwhile, I'm moving on with bikeneil's John Mitchel Memorial Park tag, on 753 in Greenfield:

Tag!

Here's my reasoning for moving on:

1. I went after the Greenfield tag in good faith, not realizing that there was a mistake.

2. I left the house before anyone noticed and posted about it.

3. I can take being bruced, but I dont like the idea of doing a 100 mile round trip, in the rain, for nothing just because some other FF screwed up


so, pending a ruling by the International Moto-tag Association governing body overturning my reasoning, next up is:





hint, if necessary: find Stingy Lane

total and complete utter fail of that is good and honest about Tag-o-Rama.

the proper reaction to a mis-tag is to point and laugh at the FF that screwed up .... not reward the current fuck-up and enable future fuck-ups.

take yer post down ya reprobate.

There is no "next up" as the observatory hasn't been tagged yet. Sorry, but it looks like haste made waste.

Looking at a you tube video of Perkins Observatory ( Reaching for the stars, I think ), the front and back of the building do look quite different. I think it's the same one.
The only other observatory I found reference to in Delaware was a 'big ear', listening to outer space.

Yep, watched the video again, same building. Foundation and windows are different on front and back.
Guess we need to hear from mchester.

The "great" tag dispute! First it is, then it isn't....then, perhaps, it is again. What's a tagger to do?

C'mon mchester, we need a definitive answer!! Or, don't you know either?
