    Here's some more shots of the memorial itself.

    This thing wasn't so big as we were led to believe.

    And a close-up of the plaque, if you're curious:

    Here is the next tag...

    [​IMG]


    Hints:
    It's only about 3 miles from a previous tag on the same county road.

    That's prolly not fair to those who haven't followed since the beginning so I'll provide this as well:

    On a county road that sums to 9 about 2 miles from the intersection of a US Highway that sums to 6 and a county road that sums to 10.

    Good job, Byron.:thumb
    When I took the picture I didn't realize it would look
    so big.
    I like the memorial in the front:

    [​IMG]

    I met Dave in New Holland a few minutes after you left, and we had lunch at The White Cottage in town. OK food, excellent peanut butter pie. Another ADV rider showed up as we finished the pie.

    Great lunching, Bean. Given what the creamed peas tasted like, I'd hate to have had the mixed greens. And that's Jeff, aka - is it Biffster? Long time lurker, infrequent poster. You're going to have to post now with your correct screen name.:evil

    I met Byron in some little town south of 71 on my way down. I guessed I wasn't going to be the first there, but hey, it's all about the pie - Peanut butter chocolate in this case.:thumb

    I thought about taking a cellphone shot and sending it to someone to post for me, ahead of Byron - as a joke only. Maybe that should be a rule? The person tagging has to post their own pic? Just thinking out loud here.

    Nice day for a ride. If the Adventure Pup didn't have his heart set on some tennis ball throwing, I'd head out for the next tag.

    Tag!!!!

    It appears the DRZ is as good at tagging as the DL was....Though just not quite as warm...

    I'm gonna have to get some heated grips and maybe a plug for my electrics on this thing....And then probably carry a car battery on the rack:rofl

    OK, in that case, here it is:

    [​IMG]


    I like to try to keep the theme the same with the tag, but move the location. So, here's another school.

    Clues:
    1. Neighboring county to last tag.
    2. On a State Highway that sums to 9.
    3. Near a road that has the same name as a television series made from 1979-1986 that was created by Susan Harris

    Good luck all!!!

    What was the location of the last tag?? That's one of the unwritten rules (I think) - have to identify the where of the one you found.:lol3

    Not that I'm going after yours - have to finish re-fabbing the GPS mount. Version 1 was good. v2 will be better.

    Ahh....the unwritten book of the road....

    OK - It was on county road 153, near Zanesfield, OH off Rt 33. It was near Marmon Valley Horse Farm and Mad River Mountain...

    FWIW, there were people skiing today as I rode by....

    Sweet ST. I was looking for you on it this morning as I was headed to the first tag, and saw Byron on the XR instead. So we both got scooped today!:wink:

    It's still light out, head for the next one.:thumb

    Great day to be riding.
