Went for a short ride today.

So we went to breakfast with a few fellow riders this morning and we split up into a few different directions for the day. My wife and I made a few stops around town before getting on the road for a short 200 mile day of riding. We went to one of the favorite motorcycle towns in the area. It seems that many other people like to visit it too, something about one of the local businesses.







We got here just awhile after closing time so nobody was here and we looked around for a bit, but felt we should keep looking for another hide spot for this tag. Maybe tomorrow we will hit that spot that might be just right.

Not a good place for Drago. Alot of flammable liquids there he might accidentally set on fire.

Your new TAG location -Welcome to Alabama!

So this Dam Yankee is having problems getting out in this heat to ride and find a good location to drop this TAG. My weekend off is over and I felt I needed to just drop this guy off and get him on the move again. Went out this evening, when the temps dropped below 90 degrees, and headed for yet another fun stop in the state of Alabama.

"Welcome to Alabama" This is another rocket, not to far from the Rocket City, it is not on the best riding road, but not to far from some very good roads to travel on.

Here is your TAG shot (hope you feel that enough of my bike is in the shot).



I wanted to get as much of the rocket in the shot that I could and parking was not easy for the shot I wanted.



A few more pictures from around this location...



From this vantage point you will need to turn around and look, North, to this plant.



Go to the far side of this plant in look into its base for this:



Hope this is enough for some of you inmates to work it out, if not, let me know and I will post more.

Happy hunting and game on.

There's enough there to get an exact address, you just have to look. And maybe zoom a little *hint hint*

Sometimes things don't work out; way to keep it moving!

How much hint would one need? How many erect rockets you figure are in Alabama?

I think that there are a few more than three or four around the state, if size does not matter much, and I know that in the city of Huntsville (Rocket City) I have seen at least five Rockets standing tall.

But a few of the clues that I gave, in my post, was "Welcome to Alabama" and near, not in, the Rocket City. One of the others was the type of road that it was on. I know that I'm not much on riding on them any distance if at all possible unless it will get me to the kind of roads I really want to ride on. That would be an interstate highway.

So welcome center on the interstate near the Rocket City.

Hope that helps out any inmate that might not have worked it out yet.




Now go for it and see who finds it next.

GAME ON.

I meant take a close look at this picture:



Specifically, the sign in the background. I didn't read any of the clues, I just zoomed in on that one picture and then went to a map.

Shame it's only seven hours one-way of super slab and I don't have any upcoming time off!

YES, I did see that too and you are very right about that part of the clue that was not intended, but thought was good too.

The local Harley Davidson Motorcycle shop does rent out bikes, if you are up for that and it is still there. Might be kind of funny.
