    No big bike for you on Sunday? By the way, you missed a great big bike ride at the Touratech Rally. Some incredible routes!

    Al, by not placing the new tag, you forfeit the Tequila reward. I get it because I went and got the Bruce with my big bike. Here it is:

    No duck was found. Suspect the Red team for the heist.
    Will, thanks for the excuse for a wonderful afternoon ride. 78 degrees. No humidity! Neat road. Priceless!

    OK, since Will and Al have decided I have to place the new tag, I stopped at Toys R Us and got a new duck:

    So, here's the new tag.... You have to find the old lawnmower at the end of the trail...

    New tag. The bikes do not move in the following, and are facing South.

    The duck is behind the leftmost of the 2 trees with "POSTED" notices:

    ...covered by a log:

    There are a number of reflective marker poles on the other side of the road:

    We went along this road a couple of times, looking for a good spot for the duck, saw a white cat sitting on the road once giving us the evil eye, but didn't see any racoons in the hollow on the West side of the road.

    For those of you who like to steal ducks but not supply new tag sites, note that Babies R Us has a new supply for you, so you can save some time just going there! :imaposer

    I've got my supply for the next two "Lost-Borrowed-Stolen" mascots!

    Where's the hint in the last tag? Don't see anything to narrow it down.

    Go all the way up the hill, keeping left up past the power line. The duck is behind the big tree, under a rock...
