    N00b to this thread. Had been playing NoVa TOR [occasionally] but this is much more to my liking.

    Looking forward to seeing the tag so I can get in the game. :freaky

    Well, outta town until Sunday PM so it doesn't matter to me.. (I live just south of Warrenton)

    The entire boundary area is some of my favorite riding and I don't mind going an hour+ for a grab.

    I don't have "ADV" bikes but am not afraid of gravel -- if the tag is on some fire trail I just wait for the next one! :D

    So I decided to go set the tag tonight come hell or high water.

    I rode around for almost an hour(I was trying to set it close to home :huh) actually stopping at two different spots and setting Rudy at one of them, then nixing that spot, before I found the road that is "the place to be"...

    Rudy's at the base of the route number pole. Now you see him...

    New Tag


    Beautiful day for a ride ah say...

    From Liberty Furnace there is a " springs road" that has the right temperature for drinking. Take that road a bit to the first left.

    road to the left looks like this:

    What you don't enjoy bumper to bumper traffic around endless work zones on a hot day?

    I've been waiting for someone else to make this grab as I don't really have "ADV" bikes, but I like to play anyway... I'm not sure this Tag is where I want to be taking my heavy cruisers. Hopefully someone will grab it soon!

    The hidey hole is behind the big rock behind my helmet in the first pic. Baggie with a couple items and Rudy, just like I found it.

    Appologies if this spot has been used already. I don't follow this tag very closely.
