I Googled that text last night and got quite a few results. If I wasn't so tired at the time, I am pretty sure I could have pin pointed the location. Tired again tomight, lol.

Tried it, too.

Looks like Thomlinson Run State Park most likely. Should be nice fall colors up that way. If I had 9 hours free... seldom these days.

Sorry, been on the road and out of contact for the last couple days, so I couldn't provide more hints when requested.
elroy is on to it, so go get it and enjoy the ride!

Cheers,

Good grab jam_nut. I was beginning to think that nobody could find the northern panhandle of Hoopieland.

Thanks!

I'm actually from PA just over the WV line, but I do most of my riding in WV. beautiful state!

I grabbed the new tag today also since I wasn't sure when I could get back out on the road. Moved it a bit more south.

I'll get it posted up in a few minutes. Need to do some research about the spot first.

Stay tuned.......

Where at in PA? I was out moving the SCR PGH tag today and was skirting the PA/WV border near Morgantown. If you had claimed and dropped the WV tag earlier, I would've been double tagging again .
You picked a nice spot, that may end up being my permanent parking place.

Wow, did everyone quit riding for the season already? We've had a few nice days since I posted the Tag, I'm suprised no one grabbed it.

Just in case more clues are needed, this is WV's version of Arlington National Cemetary.

The grab you had sat for more than two weeks, and to top things off, bow season came in a week and a half ago.
