Jeez. What a ride. Great roads and all, but I completely lost all signal when I was still a good ways into NC. My "GPS" is directions written on the back of an envelope. As luck would have it, lots of missing street signs in the town in NC where I needed to turn. Finally got a GPS signal, but no Internet. No idea if it had been got. Or not. Found my way to Ebony, VA - fairly near the tag - and got a slow connection at the country store there. Saw that Al had been there, but hadn't been able to post pics. What the hell... Found the Pea Hill Estates sign and started riding around looking for the tag picture. Rode through that community for a while and essentially gave up. Stopped back at the entrance and noticed that was where the tag shot was.
Oh, and then my cell battery died just after posting the grab pics... Fortunately, I brought a camera as backup, you know, just in case my battery died or something...


So, without any further rambling, here's the next tag.
It's an off road park not a real long ways from the previous tag. Used to be a member here a while back when my son was racing. They've done one round in the VCHSS series for years, but I think this year was the last.

Additional clues for the asking.

I thought about posting up a comment, but figured people would think I was overmodding the game. Multiple tags for the same tag is never a good idea. You put up the one tag, and they either get it or they don't.

I'm glad to see that Just Al and wb57 came to a happy agreement on who has the tag. That's a tough situation, but it speaks volumes about the great folks we have playing this game.

On the new tag, some additional clues might be needed for people who don't live near that place. It doesn't seem to have much (more like any) web footprint.

Additional clue for current tag:
Searching for RADD won't do you much good. Looking at the VCHSS Website will be all you need.

This is the site of the opening round of this year's VCHSS series. A quick stop at their Website will take you right to it.

The street address posted on the VCHSS site will leave you a couple hundred yards short of the entrance if you're using bing or google maps. According to Bing maps, it's 27.5 miles from the previous tag.

And Al is a good NC poacher. I would have been happy either way. Great roads around Lake Gaston and a perfect day to ride them.

Are the clues enough to get you there? Just say so if they're not. Not trying to bury this thing. I'd much rather just post GPS coordinates than see it sit.

In fact: 36.629701,-78.160669

Don't use them if you'd rather bingoogle.

It's pretty much smack dab in the middle of Poachville. Surprised there hasn't been more interest. Oh well. Live and learn. I'll drop the next one at a dry cleaners in Richmond or something...

Front or back of the house?

That bridge we stopped at on the way to that restaurant would be a good tag spot.
