Got the tag! I had forgotten if you were on the ramp or right beside it when I arrived... but you can easily tell it's the same location.

Here is the new tag! I blurred out the name because it would make it too easy, you could just google it. It is old enough to be seen on satellite though

Here are the hints:

- There are three roundabouts within 1/4 mile of each other on this road, this is the middle roundabout. You can see the last roundabout on the right side of the picture.
- The first roundabout (not shown, behind me) connects to a very scenic road that goes over a dam.


Vulture on light pole not required... Good luck!

Haha, yes, moments before I got the tag I met my gf at Jimmy John's and enjoyed a number 9 with hot peppers!

I was inspired by your comments that you could find it with the reference points GSAragazzi mentioned so I did the same... I was shocked to see it was close to our regular meeting place for lunch (I meet her close to her work so I can ride and she doesn't take much time from work).

I then proceeded to place the tag in a similarly obscure location that can easily be found using satellite images and clues. The bonus is the scenic ride you can enjoy over the dam...

Oh yeah, if anyone is trying to figure it out tonight to beat other people there tomorrow.... Another hint is you can see the roundabouts on google maps, you don't have to go to satellite view or street view to see it.

I know that spot just from the pic, but I've got a 2 year old to take care of. Just like GSA's sig line, "the only easy day was yesterday."

Co-worker and I whipped into your parking spot at JJ right after you pulled out. I'm not normally that sneaky. Had Mooyah next door.

No, those poor guys have to read wind lol (extremely difficult skill for those who've never tried)
