Well, it's been 24 hours. Just how long does it take for you to get a kitchen pass? Need help? I will take her to dinner.

You enter next to a state park that allows your tent by the water.

From the West:
You enter from a town named the same as a military hair cut.(the marbles)

From the North:
The town shares the name of the US Supercarriers.

From the East:
Well, you could park and ride the tram in the state park named from the implement the settlers made from the plant Narrowleaf Meadowsweet. You would have to walk two miles for the tag, but I would forfeit.

well, that sucks, I can't make it over there too much on the plate. it's a great part of the state to ride

A quick trip after work.

This wasn't the easiest tag. The exact location didn't jump right out at me, I had to hone in on it. I got Flat Top to the West, Nimitz to the North, and Pipestem to the East.

Camping by the water (Camp Creek) just went right over my head because I had honed in on Bluestone State Park. That being to the South just threw me. I kept thinking, "enter what?"

Google Maps wasn't any help so I ended up just panning around in Google Earth for the 4 way interstection, found the one in Dunns and could see what looked like that church in the NE corner. On a side note, Google Maps places Dunns back next to I-77, that's why I'm not sure what the area is called where the church is. It's the intersection of Summers County Line-Dunns Rd (CR-2) and Fairview (CR-19?)/Dunns-Bluestone Rd. (CR-4).

Forgot to take my camera to work with me this morning, so I did the cell phone thing.

I'll probably be doing some riding in WV on Saturday but I'm sure you guys don't want to wait that long for a new tag. Maybe in the next day or so something good will come to mind.

The cartographers cannot agree where Dunns actually is. I intentionally did not refer to the town because of that. (I did have a riddle in reserve) Garmin, Mapquest, Google, all disagree with WVDOT and the USGS. You were in Dunns, good job. Don't make the next one any easier.

Thumb Good Tag!

Good Tag! Hopefully I will get the KLR back up tonight, and be ready to search for the next one!

I had given you fella's till Friday before I removed my self-disqualification and went up to snag it anyway. It still took me an extra day to sort it out, and was a few miles off the first try.

Too bad we can't modify the WV tags to include a little dirt, or maybe spin a secondary tag off to allow dirt. That could get really interesting...

Again... Good Tag
