    The average person works about 200 days per year. So your friend wrote about 13 tickets per day. Thats about 2 per hr if we factor in lunch breaks n coffee.

    And we still have a budget problem?

    Ok, here's the tag that I would like to post:

    [​IMG]

    The actual USS ENTERPRISE (CVN65), not the mural! The sun was right behind the ship so its not the best pic.

    Here's the business end from the CO's parking spot:

    I was stationed on Big E as the Auxiliaries Officer from '08 to '12. I was pretty stoked when I saw the beach mural as the tag!!

    I guess this can't be the actual tag though as you have to access the Naval Base then have to risk being arrested taking the pic.

    Instead I'll use this one:

    If you look at the mural tag shot there's a submarine in the lower left area of the picture. I started out in the Navy on an old Missle Boat (USS BENJAMIN FRANKLIN SSBN640), so I thought this one would be appropriate. I started my sea duty career on subs and finished on the Big E.

    The sail is in a park right next to the oldest shipyard in the United States. The yard first opened on 1 November 1767 and has been doing ship repair ever since. The park is accessed off "the 16th Presidents Street" in Portsmouth.

    Happy Hunting!

    Bazinga! Good grab and new tag! Glad I could brighten someones day via tag. I was mechanized for a few years but connected when I saw this painting. The more I get away, the more I reminisce. After I passed the yards on my way back home, I figure I would need to return so I can gander at the ships some more.

    LOL!

    That was also an old Commuter Tag site before they added the mural. Can't remember who posted, or grabbed it.

    I don't think it was me in either instance, but will certainly go through my archives to see if I can find it.

    One "local" could almost spit and hit that thing. :lol3

    The shot of the marker with the marker in the mirror is cool , I wonder if the grab is going to copy it.

    Ha ha. It's been done before, I can remember tagging Mangano's house one time when we hadn't heard from him in a while.
