Or you could just pull into the driveway and then in front of the building itself without asking, but it could be you that gets shot instead of the building!

Next...

Got to this earlier today and hope someone has a good ride after work getting it

Head North and East from the last tag (which is the only way you can really go from Hinsdale ).
Follow a river to a village with the same name and this bridge.
This bridge has a tie to a different verdant meadow than the one reference by Baiku (Restored in 1999, the engineering firm contracted to the job is from the one I am referencing).

Arrgh! You're killin' me! I rode past that bridge to place yesterday's tags.

Sadly, all play and no work makes Squidmark a poor boy, so no tag-grabbin' for me today. Urrgh. (Must hit Powerball soon )

Way To Go!!!!

Good snag and TAG, or was the bag and tag, or was that pick and place, or was that grab and drop, anyway you get it, you got it, you had it and now it moves on.

Way to go bro... See you soon I hope.

Not sure if I will bring the bike with me or not this trip. I might spend to much time going after tags if I bring it. Will have to think about this some more.

More later, oh and I hope this bumps this back to page one again.

As long as we're on an intermission of sorts...

Remember this tag from a few weeks ago?



Was fortunate enough to stumble onto this recently:



Taken at least 100 years ago. If I'm not mistaken that tag is the second house on the right. Looks like they're building a stone wall. BTW, it is postmarked August 28, 19-oh-something.

Ok. Back to sleep boys and girls.

In reading some of them during my recent 'scan a bazillion vintage postcards' project, I concluded they were the email of yesteryear. For a penny you could send a message anywhere in the country, and in some cases - beyond.
