    When I was driving through GWNF this morning there were a lot of roads closes. The bars are pulled across the roads and they have paper signs tacked up everywhere.

    A little history first.
    The Church was constructed on private land after 1660 and before the 1692 Vestry Act created thirty-two Church of England parishes in Maryland. It remains an active Episcopal Church, probably the oldest in continuous use in its original form.

    This marker commemorates the starting point of a most important survey.

    The owl is to the right at the base of the South Street arch, in the middle of the ornamental grass, straight back from where he's sitting.

    Great grab, and really nice looking V-Strom NJ-Bill!

    So will the next tag be 31 miles east of the southwest corner of PA? (The western end of the Mason Dixon Line). This was my plan, but since one of my bikes was crippled by a Track Day mishap, and the other is in many parts at a local dealership, I was not able to make this great grab.
    Looking forward to see where the next tag will be.:clap

    I liked the orange mascot better. This new guy is so small I had a hard time finding him in the grass. At one point, I moved from the right side planter to the left; thinking bikehigh quoted the wrong side. Then, I returned to the right planter and got serious. I must have raised some eyebrows as I thrashed through the planter ATGATT.

    This is the new tag. This abandoned barn is on the edge of South Jersey's greatest asset, the pine barrens.

    The mascot is in the corner of the old barn; covered by a red shingle.

    What's with the flag? Neither Union Jack or USA?

    That was the correct flag of 1775. It took a bit of research to find it too.
