    not sure what you have available. But I ditched hughes and got centurylink DSL and its cheaper and faster and more reliable.

    thats my only 2 options in the woods:rofl

    New tag.....have not been in the tagging game for a bit so this may be a repeat.


    Here is the duck between that rock and the tree.....

    [​IMG]

    Now the duck is covered up with a rock and some leaves....

    [​IMG]

    It's behind that rock in front of the tree in the middle of the pic....

    [​IMG]

    You can see the tree with the rock just in front of the bike to the right side of the road.....

    [​IMG]

    You know you are getting close when you see these 3 posts on the road...

    [​IMG]

    I hate it when someone leaves garbage on these roads ....like this old antifreeze jug just before the hiding place....

    The tag spot is a few tenths of a mile up a 2 word road.

    In 1965, Ruth Fertel purchased this New Orleans restaurant for just $18,000.The name of this restaurant is a homophone for the first syllable of the first word of this two word road. The second syllable is the opposite of what Ruth is.

    The second word is also the second word of the town where Ichabod Crane went to track down a headless Hessian mercenary.

    Good seeing you folks today...have fun:lol3

    Until I saw this I thought I knew where the tag spot was. Now not as sure. Was this a belated April fools joke?

    No joke. The road the tag is on has been photographed by Google...believe it or not. I'd post a pic but I can't remember how to copy and paste the image.

    If you stand next to the motor oil bottle and look out over the valley this is a beautiful spot.
