    any excuse to go for a ride... :D

    I was surprised this was still available. I found out the hard way that 249 was closed. I had to re-route! :eek1 It took me 84 miles to get there from my house. I thought for sure someone would beat me to it.

    Only on REAL special occasions. For me, it's hit or miss. I did meet Minnesota Fats (the pool player) there a long time ago.

    I thought your tag might be in that area.

    OK, now I am hungry. I am starting to like the thought of tags next to restaurants.

    Ehhhh. Been a while since I've been there but Stockyard is so-so in my opinion. I remember it being a little tired on the inside. For that kind of dough go to Flemings....

    Harder to get to than I thought- plus had to ride by some Gov't building with lots of folks looking like they wanted to be somewhere else.

    So where is this thing? I assumed it was downtown in the German Town / North Nashville area but I couldn't find it.

    if you look at the picture I posted, and see that silver rail that looks like it runs between the building? that is actually the Jefferson Street Bridge. This is just on the south side of the bridge, right on the Cumberland. A bit tricky to get too. The Stockyard post was meant to get you in the neighborhood - from there it's pretty easy to find it with Google Earth.

    Way to go Cecil! :clap

    I amended my original post, but here is the exact location-

    The Stockyard post helped me pinpoint though, thanks for that. I really enjoy finding these tags, even after they have been found by others. Fun to see all the places I did not know existed or see places I pass by every day in a new light.

    Yeah, I figured the Stockyard reference was a clue. Turns out I was hitting all around it and just didn't see it. Good one.
