Haha, that would be interesting. The way it's going now I'll have more "bruced" tick marks than actual tags They are all definitely worth it though, several of the tags I've seen on here are on my list of places to ride whenever I get time.

That is what I want to do. When I don't have an active tag waiting, I want to try to map out routes that swing by old tag locations so I can get a picture at every one!!

I ran over a Sheltie with my Trail 70 WOT{40mph} when I was a kid. To this day I don't know how I stayed on two wheels. The dog stayed on four legs as well.

Yep. It was the only way across for a long time. Someone ran into one of the supports years ago and caused it to be "dangerous," so they built a new one.

That's why it's called a swinging bridge . It is supported by cables . The fun part about it was when you stopped on the bridge to feel your car swinging back and forth . It wasn't so much that it was unsafe as that people were trying to drive vehicles over it that it wasn't designed to handle . Growth in the area mandated a new way to get across the river. The new bridge was built in the early '80s .

What Trophy is referring to didn't happen till after the new bridge was open . Both bridges were open for traffic till someone nailed a support and got hurt . That's when it was decided to close the swinging bridge.

Tag has moved

I had to get this one, I had been waiting, patiently. Had the new location picked out weeks ago.
The Bridge on Rosemary Rd.

my son was with me, he was looking for Ug. Until, I explained the local tag, rules.

Here is the new location, it is closely related to the previous tag location.

Do you have any idea where the next tag is?
Or do I have to provide other clues?
