    hppyfngy,
    I must have just bearly Bruced you if that counts for anything. SeeDoo and I took a short ride from Buck Mountain Ford to a spot that once cost a price for admition. Altough it is now free you no longer get full use. The road we found looks like it hasn't been maintained since Sherman was a boy. It has a name and a number. Another way of saying the number might be 8:54. As to the name, well there is a gap in my memory. Could be due to the leaves changing from the lush green hues of summer. Perhaps I've stonewalled you long enough. Go 1.5 miles past the bridge and look at the base of tree, under one of the many "Posted" signs you will see along the route. Stay on the road and you can ignore these signs. You will find SeeDoo looking at the high tension lines overhead.
    I'll now try to attach some pics.
    Not having luck with the pics. Will post this and try again with photos

    You guys and gals, you have to do better with these pictures.

    You need one shot of the grab with your bike in it, one shot of your tag with your bike in it and at least one shot of where the cache is stashed, or one heckuva good description.

    Cute clues grizz47 but pictures need a lot of work...

    If you have any questions, pm me. :norton

    The tree is well marked with a "Posted" sign and don't forget the over head power lines

    I can't believe I didn't get a dirtbike years ago either! Sorry you weren't able to come this weekend too! You could have put your bike in the tag picture and joined in the riding this weekend too! We had a lot of fun ;) See you soon!

    What he said. Also need to say where the grab(old tag) was... eg: "Grab! Couch dump Rd., Rt 205, Ruckersville, at the old swimming hole"...etc, with the Grab picture.

    Never say never...too late. Get one!

    I beg to differ...tagging...er...riding season is just heating up!:evil

    Just have fun tuffstuff. That's what it's all about anyway. We're just trying to play along. :D

    Just suggesting a little decorum... but even saying that makes me feel silly....

    :happay

    Play On! :clap

    Oh and BWalsh loves to manage tag maps!

    I hope I'm not revealing just how dense I am here, but I cannot figure out these clues. I'm pretty sure i've got the route number, and there's more than one not too far from Charlottesville, but doggonneit I just can't seem to nail down any of the rest of it. Gonna try riding out to one of them today, the closest one to Buck Mountain Ford and see if it looks different from the ground than it does from Google Maps.

    And in the meantime, since I'm off work early today, I'm going after the Valley Tag, looks like it's in a pretty cool spot, and it's a lot closer than it's last spot, and it's not in the valley, I'm planning to keep it that way.

    I also cannot figure this one out! I hope you do!!! I noticed the valley tag is on our side of the mountain this time. Go get 'em both! We might get yours tomorrow! Another great weekend to ride :)

    OK, so, I got the valley tag today, and kept it out of the valley, and I'm planning to grab the NW Virginia tag tomorrow morning. Still deciding on a spot to stick the duck, and I'm staying up way too late trying to figure out the Damn Charlottesville Tag spot. What am I missing!?!?!?!?!?!?

    Do you think we can get another clue on the Charlottesville tag? We went out last night looking for it with no success. Seems others are also quite baffled. It sure is a good one! Can we get more help?

    Tag games ARE about the ride...to the tag, NOT researching for hours on end and running all over the country side looking to see if you can "find" it...

    grizz47 needs to come back here and post a solvable clue(s).
