Bruced!

Even Mothers Day wasn't enough to prevent the bruce.

Good grab mow0709 - you might have been just a few minutes ahead.

Was sitting at lunch with my son when I figured out where Ali was at so asked if he had any ideas where I should hide Ali should I not get Bruced. He wanted me to hide it by the school sign where he attends Middle School but thought better of that given the school probably wouldn't be to crazy about any of us playing around in the mulch in front of the school.....so made drop just down the street on the road heading toward the water tower.

The MS you will be looking for nearby is the "Home of the High Flying Hawks"

Road entrance heading back toward the water tower


Looking back towards the school in the distance


Looking opposite direction from school


Gate and street number prior to tower


From where you saw the bike sitting if you look to the opposite side you will see this pile of brush


Ali will be hiding underneath


Marked with an "A"


Happy Tagging!!

A very nice try! I'd spied the ductwork tin man on a prior tag, and figured it was worth tagging!

Meet-up at the Clifton General Store Tuesday?

Cross post from the Chatter thread . . .


Robin and I are back in town for a couple of days to pick up our small boats we left here last winter. SweetBird's got a tennis date Tuesday evening with her old tennis buddies, which leaves me free . . . .

I'd be up for a meet-up in Clifton about 7:30 pm; she'll be playing tennis until about 9.

I recall they used to have Starr Hill beer . . .

Anyone interested?????

Located correctly by one inmate, but . . . not "found" (as in, grabbed) since yesterday afternoon, AFAIK.

I did a quick google map search of the intersection on the sign. Went to street view at the railroad tracks and what do I see? A KLR rider. Check it out. Go to both sides of the tracks and look around, he disappears from one side to the other. Wish I had time to make the grab.

How ya doing Xdragracer? Long time no see.

Not to unnecessarily clutter the tag game, but did you mean this one?
