    I'm leaving work early today and tomorrow, and taking Friday off.
    But I haven't gotten a deer yet.
    I know one tag will still be there.

    Here is the Tag shot:

    This monument is located on a college campus located in small Cambria County town. Jeff B had an encounter with the local law enforcement on May 20, 2012 and documented his experience in post 9913 of this thread. This town is also the birthplace of Admiral Robert E. Peary.

    The monument is located directly across the courtyard from the Admissions and President's Office pictured below.

    When I was scouring the streets for that tag I found a very cool B&B for rail fans in this town. :getiton

    OK, got the pic posted with the coordinates and address, etc... Thanks again Skyclad. I appreciate the assist. I just couldn't get Tapatalk to work and I was freezing...

    And I was able to make it back up my driveway. Which was the true adventure ride of the day.

    I know you guys want a picture of the new tag, so I won't delay, but before I do I have to share the following photo! It was taken just a mile down the road from the new tag. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A BALD EAGLE IN THESE PARTS! AMAZING!

    And now for the tag...

    There has been one or two tags very close to here before... but I had to get home while my driveway was still soft snow! If you're coming to get the tag, drop me a line, I'll buy you a beer...

    I recall coming up your driveway last winter w/the ice. I think almost dumped it about 287 times by the time i reached your garage.

    The temps weren't an issue, I was all plugged in and nice and toasty. I was however very concerned of the ice and snow lurking in every shadow! :eek: I'm absolutely tuckered out from concentrating and staying focused the entire day.

    I did get in a little side trip to Indiana. My friend owns Cafe Amadeus. It's a great little coffee shop. They roast all their own beans. His wife is from Budapest and they bake all their own Hungarian pastries! Very tasty. Stop in if you're every in the area or make it a road trip and have lunch there. They do paninis as well.

    All in all a great day. I love tag, it's a great excuse to ride. Happy New Years guys... hey I guess I got the first PA tag in 2013 huh? Cool!

    It's now a favorite in my GPS. Won't pass thru Jimmy Stewart's hometown w/o partaking.
