    I went looking. In the sleet. And rain. Gave up when the sun started going down. There are good days to ride. Today was not one of them. Maybe tomorrow morning I'll go back out, it's not supposed to rain:)

    I don't even know how I would google that dang thing?

    I tried "upside-down bowl dome shaped UFO looking concrete things that you might see in a park" but didn't return any hits. Hmph...I though Google was good :rofl I guess I'll have to wait till someone tags LP Field or something...

    Somebody go get this thing so I can quit riding around aimlessly. It's really cold out there. Wouldn't be so bad but I'm just riding around in circles. My whole body is warm except for my hands. I think it's time for some heated grips.

    Here's how I found it...

    Blake gave us the zip code. Google it. I figured it was in a park. Google earth is your friend.

    I really hope this thing takes off. I know some of the other tag games took awhile to find a following so I'm hopeful this one will grow. Especially with spring approaching. Its a great excuse to go for a ride and see areas you might not otherwise explore. Not to mention meeting some other folks that share your love of riding.

    To help bolster things, and since I'm without a bike for the next month or so, I volunteer to maintain an "official" Middle Tennessee Pixel Hunt Map. I'm still learning my way around Google Maps, but it's a start. At present it has but 1 lonely tag on it.

    http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&msid=117536519462505917998.00047e15c54a70d986f7b&ll=35.835628,-86.679382&spn=1.705587,2.463684&z=9


    I suggest that whoever claims the tag provides as much information on the location as possible including GPS corordinates if you're able.

    Good job.

    Those one way roads were a bit confusing weren't they?

    How did you locate it?

    I just rode around until I came across it. Probably couldn't retrace my steps to save my life.
