    Given the number of tags I got the past year, the pie obviously took precedence.

    Which is even sadder considering 90% of the tags have been down your way.

    True but the bike brothers have bruced me several times that I didn't post, and considering that the yellow scooter out ran a triumph tiger, I don't have a chance! :D

    I punched Tiverton, Oh into google maps and figured it out in about 10 seconds

    Technology FAIL. I use an older navigation method called a map. If you've never seen one, they look like this

    [​IMG]

    You unfold it and you can see your navigation area, in this case the State of Ohio

    [​IMG]

    There's an index on the side to help locate a town if you don't happen to already know where it is and a closer look yields the destination. In this case beautiful downtown Tiverton Center

    [​IMG]

    Ride the roads in a logical sequence (in my case I went north on routes 79, 541 and 206) and you can arrive at your chosen spot

    I use a combination map/GPS. Nice riding up around there.

    Amusingly, the 'get to general location and ride around' isn't the tactic I took... I was trying to find it EXACTLY before I left. Fail. I'm a destination then exploration rider. This game might change that. Paradigm shift. :clap

    Well, Tiverton Center is one road, maybe 10 houses. Not a ton of exploring needed to find the specific spot. Maybe one pass through!

    See, perfect case. If I'da sucked it up and rode there, it would have been found. Instead I keyboarded and missed a ride. Lesson learned.

    I have that exact same map, but it does not seem to have "Big Plastic Chicken" in the index.

    Put down the Google and go ride. Given jimjim's clues, I'd say go to Celina and ride US127 south until you see the big rooster. My guess is within about 10 miles of the Grand Lake St Marys you'll find it.

    Yes, on the Tiverton tag I just rode up there and looked around. I think Meef is being generous when he said there were 10 houses there. Tiverton Center is simply a few structures around the t-junction of OH206 and a Coshocton County road. Took me all of 3 seconds to locate the Community Park sign once I got there.

    On many tags I did in the past I simply rode to where I thought it was and looked around. Sometimes the "looking around" took a long time. Rarely did I scope it out strenuously on Google in advance. Part of the fun, I guess. But, I'm also the guy who does not use a computer phone - I ride to the tag, take a picture with my camera, then ride home to post the picture. Including yesterday, I think my last 6 tag attempts have been Bruced.

    I use google maps to find an area then I go ride that area till I find the given tag. Sometimes I ride around (lost) exploring the area
