    Very clever how you took the pic, hiding part of the name. I was able to figure it out with google after a bit of work. Very Clever Indeed.:deal

    Just so happens that my buddy Al is one of the owners of Buck's Roadside BBQ 744 Southbridge St. in Auburn.
    Couldn't find the key chain though, thought for sure I was bruced.

    This park in a previously untagged town is on the fluid highway that enabled the American industrial revolution.

    Sorry for the delay, excrement occurred in a big way and I was not able to ride this morning. That left me with insufficient daylight for the tag I had planned, so you get a fallback tag instead:

    This historic building is not the oldest building in this previously untagged in-between town, but did serve the same purpose, and is much easier to locate.

    This tag is located at a busy intersection, so the tag shot was taken with the bike in the lot of a neighboring business.

    I thought, when I first saw this, how the hell am I supposed to figure out where this is? A little looking and I figured it out. Too bad It's so far away.

    The latest Map, Tag Index, Town and Tagger lists have been updated through the Northbridge tag.

    Congrats to Volta who has entered the rare pantheon of riders who have grabbed and placed tags in all five calendar years of Mass Tag-O-Rama. :thumb

    Also thanks to him for updating a long list of photo links that had expired. The index and all of the maps have been updated to include the new photo links.

    Unfortunately, Photobucket has eaten BBQer's last three tag photos, so they are not available via the map or index.

    Excellent! Thanks for all the work you've put into the index & maps! :clap
    Thanks, it is good to be back! :freaky
    I just couldn't bear the thought of future generations of taggers being denied the full experience of my camera phone masterpieces! :hide

    Ain't technology grand, me not so much.
    I just retired my Droid II for a Razr Maxx, all kinds of neat crap that I have no use for.
    I thought the quick upload was a nice feature though, little did I know that when I deleted a picture from the camera roll on the phone it expediently deleted it from Photo bucket. I guess the Razr thought if it's not good enough for him it's not good enough for the world.
    Maybe I can dig up copies on one of my PC's, if not I'll just try to do some recreation pics for posterity. Northbridge and Auburn are close enough, Somerset is a ride, maybe Sunday after the OSBMWR chicken run.

    Should have read the directions :cob<!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

    I don't have a Razr, but I do use the auto-upload feature of the photobucket app on my G'nex. If you deleted the pictures from the roll inside the photobucket app, they may still exist in the camera's native camera or gallery app. If you've got G+ enabled on your phone, it may have also auto-uploaded the images to your G+ page (mine does) so you might be able to find them there.

    That photo is straight out of the phone, modulo whatever resizing photobucket did to make it fit their size requirements. When I got the G'nex, the stock camera app was... not so good, so I switched over to "HDR Camera+". That photo was taken with the "Natural" filter, composed from [-1,0,+1EV], which seems to give good results for static shots like that one.
