    I'm not sure where this tag is, but guessing maybe Eastern Market?
    May have to investigate...

    I do need to get out for a ride today! 63 degrees! :freaky

    I got it :clap

    Bad news is - my camera cable is at work, :ddog

    Anyway it was an interesting ride. :1drink Trying to get the picture for the new tag, I ended up by the Brewster projects in what looked like a dead end. There was a car sitting there idling, and I thought I could get by, so I gave it a little throttle, hit a pot hole and jumped a curb. :lol3.

    Apparently the car didn't want to jump the curb to get out of there, so I showed them how to get it done. It was one of those moments where I keep telling myself "Don't drop the bike" over and over and over. :huh

    Ok so here is the new one. I know the pic is vague at least. So i got some clues. Twice this year there was mighty THUNDER that came from this place from small machines. They DROMEd on for hours. If your not familiar with this, google it. Its a cool event in Detroit that more people need to know about.

    I was just thinking that this would be a cool place for a tag. Only a couple of miles from my house.

    I also had the Thunder in mind for a future tag. Go get it!

    No, not by river. Your thinking too big. Google the two highlited words in my first post. The second one is mispelled on purpose.

    That place sounds frickin sweet! Must say, good job on the tag. I had no idea that place existed, especially so close by. I'll be back in town Wednesday, I'm going to try to grab the tag then. Even if I miss the tag I want to go check it out. More tags like that would be great. So much has been lost in Detroit, too much.

    It was chilly today but I rode to work so I could go get the tag after:

    I had to loop around the whole park (accidentally driving about 1/4 mile the wrong way down a one-way street) to find the entrance. I wanted to drive up the path and take a look around but a cop rolled past me, giving me the stink-eye, so I left.

    Anyway, here's the new tag, from a part of Detroit that's still alive and kicking:

    Shouldn't be too difficult to recognize for grads of a certain school.

    It's warm this week, someone's gotta go get the tag! Here's a hint: the building is old, but it's still one of the main centers of education in Detroit.
