    This landmark is the most recently-established of its type in the U.S. It commemorates a "first" event in perhaps the most important chapter in our national history.

    It's in the neighborhood of a visible trail (marked by signs), and it was named for a town along the trail. Or a club following ten.

    The red granite marker on the left in the bike pic is the tag, and it describes the event. It is about a quarter-mile from pavement.

    The land was later purchased by one of the participants in the event. The park with the granite marker is named for him. His house (the second he built on the 200-acre property) still stands and is being restored.

    Close enough? I've seen my guy Brown. Imagine this cat coming at ya with a broadsword.

    I see what your saying, as you posted at 9:00 the granite marker was precise tag. I was struggling to get a shot of anything about then and then just posted at 9:06 and headed out.

    The iphone works for just about everything. But sometimes you actually need a real camera.

    So Tags are one thing. Lets up the ante. Get the tag, but beat 2:12 elapsed.

    I see the focus not so great. Robert Pearson Hall Memorial Park.

    You'll appreciate this. I use my Mitycross Cyglolite mounted on my helmet with extra cable and battery in pocket.

    In the spirit of one man's hero and another's terrorist, Mr Brown, I offer up the next NEW TAG to all the pioneers, for which Mr Brown most certainly was. [​IMG]

    It is a unique building for sitting out in rural America a ways from any metro area.

    I was in the old building used as tribute to pioneers, but haven't been in this modern site.

    Thanks on the /5. It's quite a machine. looks wise the R90s bars and lack of handlebar mirrors changed it significantly.

    Without wind protection the bars move you down and forward into a nice position. The solo seat is great. Running along at about 65 its a nice all day capable touring machine. Unless it rains. The front drum is useless in the rain. I don't dare touch when wet. And poor vis or night lighting is a limitation.

    Airheads are just really simple, reliable machines with a lot of functionality and character.

    Without the bags.

    John Brown was one bad dude. If ever in Topeka the mural of him in the capital building is quite a site.

    Dang! I was hoping to start playing again .... BUT you just had to bring up the sidewalk rule :evil

    I REALLY do hope to get back in the game soon and I'll TRY to stay off the sidewalks! And off of Private Property! AND away from NO TRESPASSING signs! AND inside of the new mileage radius! AND within the time limits! AND with clear focused pictures! AND ..... ????? Hope I haven't missed anything else! :rofl

    I guess others know where it is, and it must be at some distance, but I need another hint. :cry

    I kinda thought the same thing. But maybe I've seen the building so many times..... No, wait. Gonna have to go back in the previous photo tag pages.

    Edit: It hasn't been a tag before, but he's posted that pic. Hmmm....time to put my thinking cap on.
