    Sun's out, didn't snow in Earlysville. Looks like north of here (tag site) probably didn't get any weather. :1drink

    Too bad the front tire isn't the same size as the back...since it never gets used. :evil

    New tag up after I get it Placed. Eating lunch now. Duck is making new friends & swapping Tagorama stories, as I had a Tag trifecta today ( NWVA, NOVA, & C'ville Tags)!

    My thermometer said 57 degrees. I could've ridden but really needed to take care if some business.

    Good grab xc.

    Here is the new TAG. Duck is at the base of the large tree to the right of my bike.

    [​IMG]

    Close up of duck location; stick arrow points to the location.

    And here are the clues:

    1) New tag is exactly 6.6 miles north/northwest of the previous tag (as the crow flies).
    2) The picture below should give you all the clues you need for the location: (if you can read the big sign in the picture)

    But just in case you need more, tag is still located in Madison county, and at the end of a road who's name is the opposite of "STRONG SOLID".

    Thanks guys; yeah it was a beautiful day to be out riding; a little cold when I first left the house in the early am and a little chilly when I pulled back in around 7:30pm, but a lot nicer than last weekend! :lol3

    That's some French onion soup. What you don't see is the half of a Bacon Turkey Bravo sandwich; I scarfed that down while uploading the GRAB pics. :D

    I'm sure others were going, :huh, in regards the the original clues(none except the pics :lol3) but I recognized the spot as soon as I saw the first pic. The text confirms it! :clap

    I got the Cville tag figured out too!

    Grab....
    Weakly hollow road. Syria va.

    Correct grab ...[​IMG]

    ps.XC rider said rudy was at the base of the tree "to the right" of his bike. I assumed he meant the right side of the bike from a sitting position on the bike.............WRONG. I dug around the tree with the low hanging limb for about 2 minutes before I started searching other trees.......found rudy at the base of the tree to the right of his bike "as seen in the photo"

    almost bruced myself 2xs in one day!

    This pic did it for me...

    Nice grab and tag!

    But for anyone else who has never been by there or not as familiar with the building, the additional clue was good!

    I think the locals refer to that road as "suicide road"...Not a clue, unless your local. :D
