    I'm almost to one of the new tag spots and making good time! ( I'm thinking of maybe doing a double tag on this one but I also have two spots picked too :evil)
    Something tells me to check on Bruce...








    He's GONE! :eek1

    :baldy:baldy:baldy :baldy:baldy:baldy :baldy:baldy:baldy :baldy:baldy:baldy

    I even stop and check other pockets and my tank bag. Nothing!

    When I left the Antique store I had forgotten to zip the pocket he was in. Big mistake! :cry
    The material is kinda slick and he must have slid out somewhere in the last 20 miles. Great... There's no way I'll be able to find him in the dark...So I continue on sans Bruce...:cry
    I stop to take a pic for the Panhandle tag. I figure another tag or two just using a pic is acceptable, I hope. :D
    I'm there about 5 minutes, am on the bike ready to leave when I hear someone behind me. He is coming to see why I'm sitting there. I tell him I just stopped to take pics of this...

    Which happens to be the new tag here too!
    :deal He was col with that. I didn't get into tag-0-rama with him as I wanted to get home!

    I'm parked about 40' off the road(behind the bike) on a side gravel road to some buildings. If you're only going to be a few minutes then it shouldn't be any problem. If you want to stay there awhile, I think there is parking across the street.

    Clues...

    This area used to be called Watson(a loooonnnngggg time ago) and is located in Hampshire county. This is the high end side of town. :evil


    PS: Grab one tag or grab both! Your call. Just use a picture tag for BOTH games until further notice, unless you want to introduce another. Just use a picture tag until I can get a mascot into play, which I hope will be real soon! :ricky

    I asked if anyone needed clues........the name of the town were the current tag is located is in the pic. OR....are you folks asking where twohawks tag will be placed? So far I haven't seen a grab pic.

    the current tag is located in a small town with the same name as the FIRST name of a former NFL champion who played halfback and had the nickname "the bus"

    one of the roads leading you there has the same name as well.

    I'm out of the area, so I normally won't ask for clues. The above clue is very good. Unfortunately, the signs on the tag pics were not readable on any of my computers. I even downloaded one to my computer to see if it would help - it didn't. I could only read the one that said "Road May Flood".

    being out of the area doesnt matter. Ask anyway. I dont mind providing the clues even if its just so you can google find it!! But I would rather see you ride & grab!

    the Gates are open!! Take a road named for a town named for a guy named John near columbia furnace to where it meets the trail that goes to zepp road. Stay straight on said road. IF you take a lunch and take the left (forest road 92) just before the tag you'll have hours and hours of fun riding. Had the KLR airborn a couple times on this one :evil

    Christmas gifts to tagger: The catherders special hot sauce, a note about a friend of mine who was born in a manger, and Rudy.

    I shouldn't have said "nope" when 5PD asked if anyone needed more clues. I guess when I say that, inmates assume I'll be going for it when in reality, I'm not. I'll try and keep my trap shut from now on...or add, "I'm not going for it".
    For future reference don't hesitate to ask for more clues if you are having a hard time figuring out the clues.
