    How is photo tag played?

    Does someone call out a place and then the next person to get their "claims" it as accomplished?

    Is it basically geocaching but instead picture (destination) caching (without an actual cache object?

    Thanks

    Sounds Iike you got it. Just ride to the last spot pictured. Snap a shot of your bike there. Then go to your spot of choice and set the next tag. Post ASAP though so someone else doesn't take off for the spot you just took.

    that helmet looks like a "Trilogy" variant of some sort.

    I have one - it is both the best and the worst helmet I've owned.
    I love the many "modes" it can be used in and I have never had a helmet that feels so good on my head.

    BUT - I hate that the dadgum visor is either "all the way up" or "all the way down" - at least on the one I have. I wish they'd have put some detents or something it there to let you have it lightly "cracked open" off the chinbar... would help a lot with early morning commute and fogging... I either remove the chinbar or keep the visor popped all the way open - neither is optimal at times.

    Thanks for letting me jump in your post and complain! LOL

    It was deja vu. ;) Since it wasn't that long ago that I was there, I made it a point to ride a different bike to get it. Hehe... I didn't go after that tag because I knew where it was, but because I knew where it was AND the ride there is quite enjoyable for me.

    If only I had the money for a Triumph Tiger... seems like a more appropriate bike to grab this tag. :d

    This tag stays with the theme of being on a road with the word "Hill" as the last part of the name. The first part you would think is named after the white fluffy stuff that keeps our bikes off the road in the wintertime (or at least slows us down a bit), but its actually named after a landowner and Revolutionary War veteran with the first name of Lemuel.

    I searched this thread for both 'Covered Bridge' and 'Cedar', trying to avoid using a tag that has been used before, but I didn't see this in any of the past posts.

    It's not a BIG bridge, nor do I think it is CEDAR.

    A bridge not for your bike but your boat. Oldest covered one known to exist. Still in use today on the WWC (Very near the White Water river) Crosses over Duck Creek
    You can still cross this aqueduct on a canal boat named after a famous printer who was a founding father of this country (image is on the $100 bill.)

    Should be obvious where it is. There is actually a road nearby that has turns, a rarity for the area.

    Hi JP. Two different places. Look here. Restaurant is still there, but air field has been plowed under for some time.

    Haven't been up that way in a while. I need to see the wind farm.
    The back yard looks just right. Makes me wanna do a float.

    I guess it sat long enough, I had to run up and get it.

    Neat riding the busted up old roads in the middle of the wind farm.
