Yep, we are still at risk for a strike. Union and company made an effort to come to common ground so our prior contract is being honored. That being said we could strike at any moment. So hell I might be out 6 months lol!

Church Tag

I haven't been to church this much for awhile.

Go to the last tag (a church) and keep going.
Take the century road, then take a walk up a little creek.
Go about 10 miles and look for the road of serpents (sssssssssssssssssss).

On the road of serpents go up, up, up and down, down, down
to the church of fire, the church of fire.

Dang, this game is addictive. Please move the tag farther away from Blacksburg before I lose my job!

Anyhow, taking that little walker creek road and then that serpent road is a sneaky little decoy. Much easier to follow the road that is the answer to life, the universe, and everything, then turn left in Mechanicsburg, roll a couple of miles, and come to a quick stop in front of Byrnes Chapel:


Nice ride!

Now the tag has moved, farther north and farther west. From Mechanicsburg, follow the road that is the answer to life, the universe, and everything, a little ways, and you will find a ridge road. Now, this ridge road has a price on it, but believe me, you can afford it. So, make the purchase, and follow it until it ends, and then you can park your bike in front of this fancifully painted door.


I advise removing your helmet and earplugs for this picture. You definitely do not want to be caught unawares if the door happens to open while you're playing.

Now, someone please take it to Hurley!

Good job, I tried to post early enough for someone to ride out this evening. Snakey 738 is a riot. I hoped you would go that way and not the easy way.

I never rode it before but when I saw it on the map I needed to do it. I rode over the mountain hoping there would be something worthy of tagging. Found the church on the other side.

Here's one of the many, many twists and turns on 738.

Should have stayed at work 3 more minutes and I could have ran back and got this one.

Yep, it's a cool road, and your clue was cool too. If ol' Sol hadn't been getting shy behind the mountains, I'd probably have gone that way, but since I didn't get out of the 'burg 'til after 6 PM, I decided to take the more expeditious route (I even went through Fairlawn instead of through Eggleston). As I recall, there are a couple more good churches on the road that connects with 738 and is parallel to 42.

I call 738 "Goat Path #1". I bet Nocturnal will be back with the latest tag in a few minutes.

I have to be in Kentucky tomorrow for worksucks without the bike and the tag is so close to home!!
