    Eyeing the map thinking "If is skipped work it'd be a quick run" though it wouldn't be a 2-fer since I placed the NC tag. You people need to get these tags out of here - my career is going to suffer otherwise :rofl

    Hey! I remember dropping that tag a month or so ago in a different thread. Great pizza that day too...

    If it ever stops raining I'll go grab this one again. I've got another great place to drop it.

    I didn't know that my IPhone would not take a photo while I was listening to music. It looked like it did. Crap..

    I'll try again tomorrow and might even use a real digital camera.

    After figuring out that I had a really bad case of dumb thumbs yesterday and if I had pushed the right button the phone would have worked, I returned and after I had a really great 8" Pizza with sausage, mushrooms, garlic and goat cheese, washing it down with a Red Rock Ginger Ale I made this here grab...

    Can't remember the Tag number now, but if you are standing at the next tag and look across the road you will see this view:

    [​IMG]

    Right now it is flowing about 2,400 cubic feet per second. Yesterday it peaked at 5,100. This is the South Fork of the oldest river in the US but it's name does not reflect that fact. In a few miles it joins up with the North Fork and becomes one river.

    So, if you turn around you see this tag.

    [​IMG]

    All the clues you need for this one are right there. If you get stuck though I'd be glad to help. Just let me know.

    Enjoy.
