    YAY!

    I was making a bee line for home, knowing I would not be able to get out Saturday to get a new tag. It got dark, and when I came upon this place I thought it was pretty cool! Plenty of light for the photo as well.

    :lol3

    I figured it was in Summertown.

    I've never been there but there is supposed to be a WW1 monument on the corner of hwy 20 and Monument road as you head east out of town that I thought might be potential tag material and was thinking of headng down that way to check it out. You guys ever see it?

    Anyhow...where is this tag (for the map) in relation to the RR tracks that cross 20?

    Tag is at the South/West corner of the hwy 20 and RR track intersection.
    Yes, the monument is at the intersection of hwy 20 and Monumentrd. You can't miss it.

    Had a great time in the rain and 5:00 traffic getting this one. Suggest that you pick a better time to head here.

    Can you imagine being strapped to the cow-catcher of a speeding locomotive as it busts out of the trees at the beginning of that bridge with nothing in front of you but a skinny ribbon of a rail between you and the river 60 feet below?

    Now that would be awesome! :eek1

    Hell, I was scared looking up at it! I was really hoping that a train would go by so I could get a picture of that, but I don't know if it is still in use or not? Guess I could have road up there and checked it out, just tell the Officer that I am on a Pixel Hunt! :evil

    I forgot to mention exactly how much fun this tag was....
    Riding thru 5 pm traffic on I24 and I65 ! :clap
    Riding in the storm that decided to start just as soon as I got on the bike! :clap :clap
    And the Grand Finale' ------ My rear wheel bearing decided to take a crap on the way home...of course it was after shop hours and I don't currently own a truck!!! :clap :clap :clap

    Many thanks go out to Codyrides for the offer to come rescue me, fortunately the wifey was on the way to a friends house to borrow a truck. Thanks again Cody!!! :clap

    Anyone in the market for a slightly jinxed Uly? :evil It now has a new rear tire and wheel bearings!!

    I think it is a blessing that your bearings went at the same time you need a tire. You'll have things apart anyway...
    The glass is half full baby!
