    Who said anything about moving it to Florida?

    For the record, my wife would let me go in a heartbeat. However, my job will not. I'm pretty much limited to about a 800 mile roundtrip range. The 1218 that separates me from Cosmo is a bit much for a one-day run.

    After a fine morning at the annual Alafia Rendezvous, Sanjoh & yours truly rode over to the greater Tampa area with the intention of moving Cosmo
    to a spot more deserving of his status as an ADVenture rider.

    Several miles of urban sprawl led us to a nondescript Marathon gas station near the Selmon Expressway.

    [​IMG]

    I wandered out to the drop zone past the homeless guy living in the swamp behind the station and found Cosmo none the worse for wear.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We swept him up, gave him a comfortable seat in Sanjoh's Givi top box and headed back east.

    On the way, I stopped at the Bhuddhist Temple to officially tag the place.

    Tomorrow Cosmo will get a new home, hopefully very temporary. As long as the weather sucks just about everywhere except here,
    us flatistan inmates should be able to give Cosmo a tour of Florida with sights more than what most tourists see careening down the interstates.

    Thanks for actually tagging the Temple, which is the* actual TAG...not just the gas station.
    Looking forward to future locations.

    Question: Is there a history of adding your screen name to Cosmo's svelte figure? I saw something about it mentioned.

    After a delicious dinner of stuffed grilled peppers from the smoker

    [​IMG]

    and a visit to my workplace, otherwise known as ADVmonster World Headquarters

    [​IMG]

    Cosmo got a tour of my lovely little town Babson Park Florida, a diamond in the rough on the Central Ridge.
    He is now lounging beside one of the "Babson Park Spires" that mark the gates of town along Scenic Hwy.

    [​IMG]

    He is under a Palmetto, appropriately the state bush, seen to the left in this pic

    [​IMG]

    This particular town marker is the one across from the private university in town.
    Yes, we do not have a bank, gas station or traffic signal but we have a college. And this is Polk County!

    Here is a shot from one of the markers at the south end of town. The orange trees are being replanted right here,
    but it gives a good view from the top of the ridge.

    [​IMG]

    Next to it is the road to Casa FL Pepper and my neighbor Hacienda Sanjoh.

    [​IMG]

    It is an interesting road to say the least. That's the nice part, it gets much worse.

    Only 1 person has made it down our road unscathed and that was on a 919 :eek1
    If you are up for a challenge, come on down! :ricky

    We like visitors, so if you are in the area, pm one of us and we would love to see ya.

    Way to go Pepper!:thumb:y0!:devildog:wave:ricky:beer:super:p3rry


    Now if the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast would just come out of the Ice Age for a few days, it might thaw out some egg snatchers! Aren't there any egg sniffing Florida taggers?

    Looks like Florida taggers are almost as rare as California taggers!
