For some reason the pic was a little small, so it was hard to see the background. When riding up the road, its a lot easier to see in person. Just look for the giant crane. Couple more pics and a few more hints.

My bike is facing South in the pic, so the reactor is 2 to 3 miles to the east of the road. About 5 steps behind the bike there is a bridge crossing the waterway shown in the pic that is visible on The Google. And on the other side of the bridge on the north side of the water is a public access and boat ramp to the water.

Good luck and happy hunting!

Grab!

I hope a shot from the bridge counts! My big girl doesn't like a soft berm.

My KLR LOVES the dirt, especially when she is laying in it! Also I have no problem breaking the rules on the bike, but the number of no-parking signs on that road was OBSCENE.

I was slightly intimidated by the 12 that I counted and thus parked it in the grass. Good job on getting two tags in a day so far!

Just a wee gentle reminder that this game has a 6-hour limit to post the new tag (as do the Upstate and Lowcountry regional games).

Play on,
Chris

Bruced

Since I got bruced on this Midlands tag today, just wondering now that the 6 hrs have come & gone, is this thing fair game again, or does dirtysouthjacket have to give us another tag?

In the low country, yes, a different game, the previous poster would put another tag. In this case that would indeed be dirtysouthjacket. Not sure the specifics of the midlands.

Sorry for the delay, just got out of the saddle after a 12 hr ride to grab every tag in the state. I hope my tardiness doesn't chaff anyones ass.

Not me. I never follow the Low-Country 'cause i don't plan on going there. Once i saw the four-bagger my questions were answered. Great ride!

On a side note, i wear suspenders 'cause i got nothing for a belt to work with and i sure as the world ain't no iron butt!

Good Show!

Thanks Opa, you are my wife's hero. She has the identical F650. Year, make, and model, and color. The only difference is that hers sits for years in the garage waiting for some love.

That's too cool.
Mine had 11,000 miles on it when i got it 3+ years ago. 49,800 today... getting some love here!

Great ride, makes my bony butt ache thinking that many motorcycle miles in a day; yes i have done it but it hurt.

After 2.5 million plus in big trucks i'm just cruisin'

But now that i am semi-retard' () i may have to rethink that not going to the low country biz

Hot grab !

Whew! Almost too hot to ride today!



Fire plug sculpture by the artist Blue Sky. You can see his famous tunnel mural in the background.
Located on Taylor St. between Bull and Marion. This is well within my self-impossed 10 mile limit,
but I grabbed it to keep the game moving.

I'll have a new Midlands tag up in a minute. Be careful out there and drink plenty of water.

New tag

Here is the new Midlands tag.



Clues: Go to West Columbia and look for a big hole in the ground. This guy hangs out on the
corner right near the entrance to that big hole. Good luck and stay hydrated.

Rice, I feel like a fried egg, Paddy
