    Seems to me that this might be a good run for Elkhound.

    Nice! A little night-time action keeps the brucings away! (I got bruced twice in a couple of hours earlier this week too). :lol3

    Other than the fact that the tag location isn't up yet, what's to keep you from going this evening?

    Of course, you could also go for the NWVA tag, it's closer than it was earlier today. Of course, almost anywhere in the boundary is closer than it was.

    I spent two hours just getting out to where the tag was. Orkney Springs Rd is just chock full of great tag locations, I saw a covered bridge, a "Happy Pavilion," an overshot water wheel and a mural of balloons. Surely one of those is still available without being a duplicate.

    Austin Ridge Drive, at Mine Road, Stafford, VA, according to the tagger (secretdestroyers).

    Street addresses remain useful for updating the Tag-o-rama map.

    The Tag-o-rama map ( http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=http://maps.google.com/maps/ms%3Fie%3DUTF8%26oe%3DUTF8%26msa%3D0%26output%3Dkml%26msid%3D105356897332601592866.00046b4d8cbe04e24c4c1&sll=38.565348,-77.124023&sspn=2.35365,4.943848&ie=UTF8&ll=38.796908,-77.596436&spn=1.173046,2.471924&z=9 )
    is sometimes useful in avoiding duplicate tags.

    If it gets posted in time, I will definitely consider it!!

    I haven't been following the NWVA tag yet, I think it is time to start.

    If you leave on the cycle now, and catch this storm's 60 mph tail winds, perhaps you'll be there in, I don't know, 23 minutes. . .. :rofl
