    Might as well start with the pix.
    Left the house in Deland just after 4:00 am.
    Picked up my first tag at the FR 88 Shooting Range just after 5:00
    Got the bonus too!

    [​IMG]

    My eyes are closed because after blinding myself with the flash four times prior to
    actually getting all the required elements I finally got smart!
    Range, bike self, and weapon.......Bonus complete.

    Just the other side of Ocala on CR326 it got REALLY foggy and cold.
    Rain gear put in use.
    The farther north I went, the thicker it got.
    Visibility down to less than 50 feet in spots. Did I say it was wet??
    Ne[SIZE=4]xt stop[SIZE=4], Dakotah Winery, just outside of Chiefland.
    [SIZE=4]Not open at 6:45am............

    I have to come back this way so I'll see if I can't get a better picture then.
    Next stop, Four Corner tag number one.
    Horseshoe Beach.....about 7:30am


    [​IMG]

    There must have been a hundred hunters/trucks down every side road.
    The fog was so thick on CR351 that it seemed like it was raining.
    Back to the Dakotah Winery......
    With a little daylight I could see the truck in the original tag picture.
    Best I could do with the gates closed.....

    I'd like to introduce a new player to the game, AG Streak. he's been on ADV for a long time but has never played tag .
    He lives in Pinellas county like me so hopefully well get a few down our neck of the woods so you central state guys & gals will have to head our way for a change....

    He's desperately trying to get the Patterson park tag uploaded from his phone. I told him he would get bruced if he doesn't get it on quickly...

    This one kinda adds an exclamation point if you get it while doing the Four Corners.
