poor see-do is cold and wants to be rescued :(

Is the cold weather discouraging everyone from rescuing See Do from his spot on the bridge? I am quite sure my clues were easy enough so I can't imagine no one knows where he is. I hope the rain didn't flood the bridge and wash him away! I hope someone gets him soon! I am wanting to go get another tag!

So, I went out there last night, but couldn't find SeeDo. Could be my fault though. I was expecting to get there, then find him based on the pics in your post. However, there's no cell service anywhere near there, and I had told my wife this tag wouldn't take that long.

I looked all around the corner of the bridge I remembered from your pics ( checked again just now and it was the right corner) and couldn't find him.

Do I need to climb down under the bridge to see him? Because that didn't seem like a good idea with extra water flow that may not have been there when you tagged him there.

Here's the only pic I took out there last night, and this was by accident



Maybe I can get there before dark tonight for one last look. Clues were easy enough, tis the busy season at work, and my wife was recently injured on a horse. So my time has been extremely limited.

Probably hard to tell at night but did it look like the water had gotten as high as the bridge?
Sorry to hear of your wife's accident. Hope she heals quickly!

The ground around the end of the guardrail was obviously disturbed by water, but the ground there is lower than the bridge, so it's hard to tell.

Ok RIP SeeDo. I verified he is no longer where he was last seen with this picture:



And I will have a new tag and a new tag location posted after dinner and some family time.

Here's an official Grab picture, without anything to grab. See the headlight on my bike way in the back:



I thought this might be the case, so I grabbed a new thing to use as the tag off my desk at work, and here it is:

A Greene Brain in Greene

Allright, the new tag, I'm just gonna call it The Brain.

The Brain has been placed next to this tree:



Next to this sign:



Once again I've found a place that is closed after dark. This one wasn't hard to get in to on two wheels. Though I don't recommend anyone else try this, I rolled over the yellow tape in between the gate and the post in this pic:



Do you need more clues? OK, here goes:

Obviously The Brain is in a park, and the road that goes into the park is not named on Google Maps, but it was recently given a name. It's named after a person who was instrumental in obtaining recreational access funds for the completion of the park road.

Things you could do in this park include: play soccer, play on the play ground, walk on the hiking trails, play disc golf, use the bathroom in the newly completed comfort station, and in the future you can play tennis on the tennis courts, or let your dog run around in the dog park. In fact The Brain is next to the sign announcing the plans for the dog park.

Have I said enough? Maybe I've said too much? Either way, the Charlottesville game of Tag is back on!!!

Too Busy?

Wow, I know at least two people know where this is, anybody else?

Need better clues? Better weather? Or just more hours in a day?

Yes I know where it is too and just need to get the time to get out there. More heat would be nice too! I almost went yesterday but then got pulled into riding my mountain bike and didn't get time to get the motobike out. We'll see how this week pans out with work unless one of you beat me to it!

Grab!

Entrance road for Greene County Park, off of Mays Rd., Rt 654, Stanardsville

I found the little green brain hanging out behind the tree. There were zero leaves anywhere near it. Looked just like it did in your first pic.


The county was burning leaves next door...


I could smell them four miles up the road before I got there.


New tag in a few...
