The Grab

Well me and Mr Nut are once together again. He told me how lonely he was and how scary it was sitting in the industrial park all alone night after night. I assured him that from now on, he would be visted much more by us TAG riders and not let him sit alone for so long. I filled him on his brother USA TAG and how he has been seeing the country and visiting new places...I didnt tell him that he may have been dropped from a ferry boat and now rests in the bottom of a river, that would have broke his heart.

But here you go - Mr Nut is on the move again...

New Tag

We took the scenic way home and came across this wonderful bridge.

So after a little Nut Love:



We day goodbye:



The Drop:


And Mr Nut is here.



This is the 2nd post on the guard rail infront of my bike pictured above:

And in the picture below: its the post just to the right of the bike:



The Clue:

You can find this TAG in Northern Wilmington, DE at the end of Rt 230 (Brandywine Creek Rd). The Bridge is on a road that is named after the Bridge. The Bridge was rebuilt in 2002. Good Luck everyone - hope it doesnt sit to long this time.

This is Nuts... Been thinking about that stranded piece of steel, wondering if it was rusting out of existence. Of course I'm in Valley Forge this week-end, Sans-A-Bike.

New Tag...



Great weather & fall colors, me & the NUT had a good day of riding & sight seeing. At this location we parted ways, for now. So here's the new tag...
The Money Shot...




This location was also crawling with tourist, so for safety sake, the Nut is hiding under the observation deck high atop the waterfall...










Some views looking down...






The road is well maintained gravel. The area has plenty of great riding, 41.137167,-74.889078...
