    I am drawing a blank on this. Don't need much, just a nudge in the correct direction.
    Thanks:ear

    The sculpture in the tag photo is a stylized letter "W". It's on a University campus; and it's not West Chester.

    Tag is not gettable from the street. It's in a courtyard and gettable from a parking lot on 16th street.

    I will accept any Ritas, DQ, Baskin Robbins, Cold stone creamery, ice cream truck, if you make it your self include the maker and the bike.:D
    Bikehigh, lets get you back in the game.:clap Grab a helmet and stand out there in front of an ice cream store. If you want to go back to Handels I'll even accept that. Lets get this game moving along again.

    I am glad the tag was gotten so quick!!!:clap
    It was so hot yesterday I wanted to make it super easy and fun.
    I can't make out the street sign on my puter, too crappy of a moniter. Any chance of a closeup?

    There's a website that documents every doughboy statue in America, grouped by state. Should not be tough to find.

    What a cool TOR game. You don't even need a motorcycle to play!:evil

    And if you don't have a computer or a smart phone, other's will google the information for you.

    And any ice cream/yogurt/italian ice place will do for "gets". Sort of like a wild-card game.

    Next thing you know, GPS coordinates will be supplied with every tag drop shot!:rofl

    Seriously, isn't the usual gentlemanly/womanly thing to do to let the dropper of the tag decide about clues, and add additional ones if necessary? And check for the accuracy of the clues? :deal

    John has placed a decent tag. Now, someone go and get it before a border-jumper has to do it. It was 70 degrees this morning at 5:30 a.m. Nice tagging weather. Should be the same tomorrow a.m.

    Hey Doc,
    I am a little tired from an 80 hour work week. That said, I am not sure if you think my effort to post a tag that would move this game along was wrong. If it was to easy why didn't you grab it? I tried to include a rider who takes the time to update our map even though he is currently without a bike. I figured it might be fun. If my humour was not understood by you, sorry. The game has been real slow since Bikehigh's bike was destroyed in a bad crash that was not his fault. As for the asking about the new tag I googled "solider statue phila" and didn't get much help. Again others jumped in to help and point me in the correct direction. If you were just having fun that was missed by my tired body, sorry I missed it. Will try for the grab tomorrow but will see what is needed at work first.

    I was just teasing. You guys are doing a great job moving the tag in absolutely awful weather. Keep up the good work. But I wasn't teasing about the clues. They should be given by the tag dropper....:D
