    Clues:

    Road name is two words. First word is the first name of one of the nerdy founders of the Tri-Lambs. Second word according to Merriam-Webster = the place or position in which something or someone stands or is assigned to stand or remain.

    There are two 'one lane bridges' on this road back to back (within one tenth of a mile of each other); one goes over water the other over railroad track. The one lane bridge at the tag spot goes over water.

    Road number is three digits which add up to 10.

    Good luck & happy taggin'. Sorry if this is a repeat; I've been out of the area for a while.

    I know where it is! Of course, I no longer have a bike...
    Mascot looks like it needs a bath.

    I know where one is you can borrow grandpa. And I don't know where Booger Station is, so if you're up for a ride, ...

    No time for riding, too busy getting tree work done and a new roof put on.
    :cry
    And - HEY TUFFSTUFF - a bear pushed in the screened porch door here last night trying to eat my cat while we were sitting about 10 feet away.
    Same bear (with two cubs) has been spotted about equidistant uphill from Jacob's branch as it is to Tuffstuff's house. Keep your eyes open.

    Sorry your working too much to be able to ride!

    WOW! I will keep my eyes open for the bear. I often let the dogs out the front door in the evenings - not a fenced area of the yard - I'll be extra careful and will tell my neighbors too!

    That works fine and welcome to the game! :clap

    Couple of things. First, when you grab a tag you should tell us where it was, (for the benefit of whose who never figured it out...)

    And we need some better clues as to where you put it, please.

    Make it fairly simple, it's obviously a lazy bunch... :lol3

    Thanks for the welcome! The last one was off of 20 on 640 aka Gilbert Station Rd at the bridge.

    Clue to the one I hid: Add this road number up and you get the number 6. Also if you ride Stony Point Road you will "Pass" this road with the same first name.

    The tree is to the left of the real estate sign.

    Nice one Kawi-Mike. Additional clues worked great. Now if I can schedule some free time to go make a grab.....

    See the young bear with its head in the trash can? Another employee took the photo.

    Now back to your regularly scheduled tag game.

    The new TAG spot.

    Seeing as how the TAG has not moved a lot lately, I've decided not to post any cryptic clues, but instead allow the TAG pictures to show the location.

    [​IMG]

    Tag mascot is covered with a little mulch at the base of the stone sign post closest to the main road. (where my foot is pointing)

    Happy Tagging!

    Grab. This one had my name all over it and it was in my back yard. It was located on Dairy Road in Ruckersville at the Crash Test Dummies facility.

    Can't believe this thing is still sitting after the weather this weekend and the RTE being so close to it.
