    They misspelled "shanndoa".

    You tag players lookin' to expand your tag score sheet need to keep an eye on that game of tag. Depending on who you talk to, two counties, Berkeley and Jefferson, in the WV Panhandle are in the Shenandoah / shenendoah / shannadoa [you know where I mean. 'Tween the Blue Ridge 'n the Alleghenies] Valley.

    Yo... Elroy yes Route 9 is a nice winding road and a nice early evening ride too.. :ricky.the traffic wasn’t too bad…sorry no bike in the water this time bank too steep down to the river. :eek1

    <o:p>Needed to make sure Lucky Duck gets some education instead of swimming all the time. Tag is where - Colonel (James H.) Drake, of the First Virginia Cavalry, was mortally wounded, and died that night at Mr. Marshall’s. About 40 feet from Marker No. 2, measuring west, is the place where he was shot. He was an able officer.” </o:p>
    <o:p>(be careful pulling off a lot of traffic on the road pull off is on the opposite (east) side of the road)</o:p>

    <o:p>Money Shot - with a surprise but one that your not really suppose to take.</o:p>

    <o:p>Also had a surprise at this tag a Geo-cache! :D so I signed the paper RebRider (right after some SGT Lawman :mulie) and placed it next to Lucky. Geocaching.com wants you to go to their web page and write about how you found it. I am going to wait until Lucky moves, cause don’t want some damn Yankee BlueBelly stealing old Lucky. May end up starting the Civil War all over again…:gun2 Maybe i should have moved the Geo-Cache...

    Oh and here it is covered up...

    Notice the approaching Sportbike. He's running flat out WOT with another guy, on an old naked Honda 750-4 or something like that, in hot pursuit.

    :rolleyes :scratch

    Hoping not to hear an impact further up the road....:huh Even Lucky seemed ticked.

    Wilst we're painting the borders.

    The Tag:

    Not far from a place named after Bill but said properly.

    The road it's on is a tad over 10.

    The money shot:
