Yah theres a street view that shows the place has 5 dormers on the bldg... which i couldnt get all into one pic from the distance I was at...i doubt it would make a great night grab as theres nothing lit up and you have to ride that road out of town during the daytime to appreciate the farm/countryside out there...I wanted to tag a pictureesque scene I saw from the road of a pair of twinpines with a big big rock inbetween them but...the property is private and fenced ...part of a really pretty farm...and theres no place along the road to pull off...just totally unsafe. Its a neat ride though.

just lazy. I'm not even searching that much anymore - if I don't recognize a clue right off, I may not bother to search....

Don't get me started - I'll start ruining the clues for everybody! Find them and then post a direct link!

no wait.... then I'd have to find the clue.... and we're back to the lazy thing... DOH!

Benny I was referring to the Nubian queen tag. There is a place similar in cary at high house and 54 at a Citgo I think.

I've given up on one or two along the way, but I don't mind working on a puzzle in the evening or whatever. I recognized exactly what the current clues were referencing, just couldn't find a satellite picture of it. I've headed out in the past figuring I'd ride right to something based on the clues and been miles off.

gotta mow the lawn before I get another nasty gram from the HOA ... if it's sitting when I go down to ray price to order some maintenance items (air filter, plugs, that crap) then I'll grab it... so somebody better get moving! I'll be out and about pretty soon...

Do I go for this one and get some of the wildcards while I'm at it, or do I go to Uwharrie for the NC Central, the beach to get the NCTOR or go steal the VA tag up near Charlottesville?????

Questions, questions, questions.

I figure the VA tag is pretty ripe and pretty centrally located, so if it doesn't fall this morning, those guys don't deserve a game.

Too late of a start to run to the Outer Banks - maybe tomorrow if I remember to set the timer on the coffee pot...

The NC Central game has some good taggers in it and the tag is in a fun location that I want to ride in/around, but it's US64 most of the way there and back and not sure that's how I want to spend my miles today. Can't imagine that it'll last to noon either.

(Whichever of those is still standing by dark tonight is on the table for early tomorrow. Posses invited.)

Which brings us to... Zeb-Yoooo-Lon.

Don't forget the Appalachian tag... That is in a location that could prove to be very very fun. I set my GPS to bicycle mode there yesterday and had an awesome ride back home.

Couldn't find it yet. I knew where Mabry Mill was, but haven't looked for the followup. I've got a friend in Roanoke I sent the link to the Mabry Mill location and he probably knows where the next one is.

Edit: Found it. That's in a decent location for some all day riding. Hmmmmm....

If I snag the VA tag, it's going to VIR, by the way.

trying to grab this f'kr

Good Lord! What a PITA! Getting the tag was fine. Decent ride out to the corner of Daddyville and Taint... 20 miles from the nearest WiFi hotspot to post it so I just headed towards the house. First place I pass is a McDonalds in Rolesville. Can't get the f'ing tablet to connect, but after about 15 minutes, I connect to the BP station next door. The POS app on the tablet took me (not making this up) close to 45 minutes to post the f'ing picture during which time I essentially got thrown out for not buy a McShit Combo Meal.

Anyway...

Good WB, now bring it back my way so I can take a pic with the bike instead of the wifes van I MIGHT have a short window to ride today, depending on when the wife leaves and comes home and when a customer gets home so I can check his AC.

Alright, but all I have is one lame-ass file tag from your neck of the woods. Posting this just to get you out on two wheels. If you don't grab it, I reserve the right to kill it and post something I got on this morning's ride.

Same park that the one room school house from a couple/few weeks ago was in. If more clues are needed, I'll throw the GPS coordinates at the bottom of this post.

Needed a skate park for a different tag game a while back. Tag shot is anything with this skateboard thingy in it.
