    Tag. A business right in the middle of Ranson was somewhat recently located here after a fire destroyed their previous building. They have since built a new building at the old location and moved out again. Apparently the rent for this building is crazy high, hence why it is pretty much always been empty.

    Nice! :clap
    How was the creek? I assume pretty bony in the riffles but OK on the flat sections? I had to cage it to Berkley Springs Thursday and took the scenic route...81 to 9 and West from there. A construction crew had traffic backed up about a mile onto 522 off of 37 in Winchester, hence the "scenic route". :lol3
    I was checking out all the small streams along the way on 9!

    well it is very low in spotsw... we went up stream from the bridge on Tuscorara Pike in Back Creek Valley... and wish would have brought some water proof boots... cause the water was a little cold.... couple of place had get out an pull us up over the riffles... then end up just turning around and head back..cause we couldnt go any further... but by the looks of the debris the water was up about 8-10 feet from Sandy....

    Bruce????? It looks as if this park is heavily traveled and by the looks of things the leaves were recently cleaned up. If no grab is posted by tomorrow am, I will post a new tag, but I didn't have a spare mascot, so it will be a picture tag only.

    I did find these items in a small hole in the concrete foundation.

    There were 4 sheets of paper. All blank. They were folded into that bandaid package. I tossed that stuff in the nearest trash can convinced it was unrelated.

    Well if you werent bruced and lucky was taken by some other Geo-cache person to parts unknown... maybe they will look on AdvRider and let someone know where he is ....hope he wasnt kidnapped...:cry... maybe we will get a ransom note...... :eek1...

    Guess you can go ahead and post your tag....time will tell if you were Bruced...or if lucky was stolen.....

    Ned is a fine looking replacement. :rayof

    Not only did I have a potential Bruce, but as our lengthy search went on the rain clouds rolled in. So we hurried towards a new tag location I had in mind near the illegal border. On our way we passed a place on the left with some huge statues of characters (such as Santa) and the Bobs Big Boy dude. With all this distraction and with rain on my tail I blew across the illegal border without notice. As I prepared to turn around and get a tag shot in bounds, my 9yr old passenger informed me of some butt coffee he had been brewing so rather than turn back we headed for the nearest restroom. Anyway, my tag shot is about 2 miles OUTSIDE the boundary (but its a fun road). My deepest apologies......This tag is a picture only and should be really easy to locate. If it all turns out to be a Bruce situation, I will remove this post.

    The new tag,,,,,,,

    Hey Joe, have you contacted Nova Rider to see if he has Lucky? He seems to have an impulsive fetish with rubber ducks you know... :evil

    hadn't thought of that.....I am old, I have short term memory issues. I also have long term memory issues, and selective memory issues.:freaky
