Nobody rides bikes down in this area? Come on guys, and gals, if the clues were any easier I'd have to post the address...

There are some nice roads in this area that I never knew existed.

It's easy to find but far away.
I'm rolling out within the hour to either go get this tag or go to NoVA for some of the hostorical markers

Technical difficulties.

TAG!
Forgive me for not posting grab or tag pics but I'll make it easy. Photobucket image upload is failing, and I don't know why, so in the interest of moving the game along I'll just explain where you can find Dewey.

At the base of a sign labeled "Caledonia Farm" at the intersection of two three digit roads the first adds to 12 and the second adds to 16. Hint this place is a Bed and Breakfast.

Before I forget the previous grab was at Novum Rd and Novum Church Rd. I think I may have been in Madison county but I'm not sure.

Technical difficulties suck don't they? Don't worry about keeping the game moving. Stuff happens ya know.
If you can get them posted up, do so. I am going to try to make a tag map and the pics will come in handy.

Must have blown off into bushes.


Grab. Dewey fell off my helmet in photo when I had my back turned. I put my helmet on and road 10 miles to new tag spot but did not have the duck, so I back tracked another 10 miles to get him.


New tag location


Dewey is at base of sign post.

Grab

Intersection of Fodderstack Rd. and Dearing Rd. West of Flint Hill.

So I get to the driveway to Caledonia Farms and see the sign but no Dewey...



That sign says Caledonia farm 1812

Did I get bruced already??? The driveway is about 1/4 mile from the intersection and Old Eli did said the sign was at the intersection so I head up there and see this sign and find dewey at the base.



New tag sometime in the near future...

BTW, the previous tag was 3/4 of a mile into Madison Co. I was thinking it was in Culpeper Co. but I was wrong.

One more thing, this was the 30th tag in the game. Good job everyone!!!

Hey. Look. I ain't pushing you. But this stuff ain't working as good as they say it does.



No rush or anything.

I got the shakes so bad I can't get the gas nozzle in the tank but just take your time.

Picasa was loaded on my laptop when I bought it. I had a G-mail account and I was pleasantly surprised when I learned it was all connected into one another.
You can upload directly to Picasa from your computer. I have no complaints!

new tag!

Dewey said it's too F%&kin hot down in the southern half of the tagging boundary so he flew North, as far north as he could go!

The money shot





See the yellow pole behind the bike? That's where Dewey is hiding!



Even though Dewey is in Virginia, you can't get there from here.

But if you follow the road Dewey is off of to the end, on a clear, low humidity day you will have a nice view. It was too hazy today though.


Here is another clue



There are a little over three miles of nice gravel road to the tag site. The last pic is where the gravel starts.
BTW there is a gate closer to the highway that says "Gate closed at sunset". I took a pic but I don't know what happened to it.
Google maps shows the road, and a few more that are private or do not exist so don't try to cut corners.


But wait! If your going for this tag why not check this out first.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...60246&page=462

So there you have it vatrader01. Now go get it!

On the way home I got zapped by a bee right in the throat. Ouch!!
