    LOL. I like that. Someone also told me about a group called the TingTings,
    but they didn't sound anything like Pink Floyd or Lynerd, so whatever.

    And dude, I'm not worried about your timing. We know you're busy.
    Apparently finding and placing tags runs a close second to finding
    and busting your chops. That was a joy. Only thing missing was the
    branding mark from your backside cause you got rode like a broncho.

    Of course, it was mentioned that maybe we should make a mascot
    out of your mailbox and hide that. I told them...no no no. He's our
    friend.

    Oh you know me. I always look for a chance for a laugh.
    Similar to a good golf game.

    I like it. Thank you Rite.

    Good idea Mr. Tuna.

    For as much as you all bitched about how long it took for me to place the tags, it is taking quite a long time for you all to go after them. Do I need to give more hints? I will do so, but only if you ask nicely.:norton

    Ok, I'm up here today, how about a "fookin" extra hint for a guy on a street bike that braves rain, traffic, drive-by shooters, rock throwers, rednecks, hoodrats, and all other assorted miscreants just to get to a tag location.l:huh

    The Mother is close to where Hammerin' Hank's road got started. The Daughter is just ESE of Grandma's house. I will let others chime in about how to get there.

    As soon as I figure out the mounting points, I will attach a
    parachute to the PC800 and grab the daughter tag. I got the
    raft part figured out so I can get back to civilization.

    Since they fenced it off, how do one get in there without bolt cutters and what is the penalty if one gets nabbed by the PoPo? Oh wait, Ernbo has one of those get out of jail free cards. ;)

    There is another 2 entrances. I found on on the way out the last time I was out there. It is off of I-675 that comes around to the Moreland exit. The other is on Henrico Rd.

    1. Give it the gas and start running zigzag patterns.
    2. Call Ting
    3. Keep running zigzag till you hear the PC horn.
    4. Head for the river.
    5. Ditch the bike and jump in.
    6. I'll throw a rope from the other side.
    7. We hop on the PC and get out of dodge.

    There are no river crossings when you enter from Henrico or the 675. Do I need to do another show and tell?

    It starts out innocently enough,.... but sooner or later it ends up with lacerations, bruises, a trip to the local E.R. and the inevitable police report and sheepish grin.

    All you have to do is ask, and then show up. Magnum did it once, but this might be a good bit more difficult than the last time. My time is limited. Has anybody gotten the Mother?

    I went and checked for Mom on Sunday morning. I dug around the tree
    and bushes, did not find her.

    Then it dawned on me. I'm digging on the ground outside a health
    clinic where people with problems and issues spit. Where bums that
    have to relieve themselves go. Where I wish I had never dug around
    under the bushes on my knees.

    Time to go hurl.

    And if done right, all those things will be in the mugshot. Plus, you can
    make headlines in The Blotter of Creative Loafing. Or maybe News Of The
    Weird...regardless, you'll be famous. Well, Almost Famous. But it was the
    name of a movie, so still be proud.

    I can't really explain where it was.....and I didn't grab the gps coordinates.


    The Mother was at south fulton health clinic at the corner of McDonough and University.

    So it seems as though what ting did in the bushes, was the same as his sex life, nothing.
