New Tag

Here's my tag and clues.

Clue 1: It's in Loudon County

Clue 2: If Ebeneezer Scrooge was a Babtist and he rode a motorcycle, this is where he would go to Church.



Good luck!

Nice!

Great grab and drop. And for the record, my name is Eben. Not ebenezer, just Eben.

Yea, the 1st tag was grabbed! Now you all get to decide who will make the official NOVA tag Google map..Better start soon, 'cause it takes awhile to if you wait 20-30 tags into it and then try to make one...Just sayin' been there, done that.

Yeah, it was a beautiful ride. Whoever grabs my tag at the church won't be dissapointed.

I think he's suggesting that the grab shot should as faithfully as possible match the original tag shot. In my case, I couldn't park my bike in the same spot as in Steve's tag shot because there were cars parked there. I think the goal should be to match the original shot as closely as possible, but if you can't for some reason, as long as it's clear from the grab shot that you're at the same place, that's ok. It would suck to find the tag but not get credit if for some reason you couldn't park your bike in the exact same spot.

Looks like you are off to a great start. Grew up in Springfield so expect me up there from time to time to drop off a mascot or cache

PM me about Tag Maps whoever is looking into it - I can give you some hints/tips (see Valley Map in Sig Line)

No pics or anything, so it's only a guess.

Seriously? Recheck those clues. It's pretty well spelled (well, maybe "spelled" is the wrong word) out. Sorry gotta bust balls, it's just the way I am.

Maybe I just have an unfair advantage, as I am only two stop signs away. I'd go pick it up tonight if my ankle wasn't arguing with the weather.

Heck, if you're that close, put your bike in your front yard and aim/zoom the camera at the tag.

That would be two country stop signs... It also feels a little unfair to check that one off when it could lead to someone else discovering some decent local roads.

Oh, I'm use to Fairfax, where stop signs are like 5 feet apart...
