    Nice!!! Are any of you guys studding up?

    So I've also lost track of the tag. What is it now?

    No studs for me...I'll wait for a stretch of a few sunny days to dry off the roads. The hardest part is always getting out of my subdivision.

    I think the current tag is gate #2.

    Per the Tag-o-Rama rules (approved by the international committee), the tag to get is still Gate #2.

    34F and sunny today - somebody may get it!

    Awschmidt ought to know where this is!! He rides the panzer there for work six day a week!
    (I guess he left the tracks off of it this year not much snow)

    Anyway, this is the back side entrance to the Chrysler proving grounds on m52.. Sylvan rd I think.
    South of old us 12, east of liebeck rd.
    You can see it on Google maps street view, but can't quite read the gate number.

    The north south dirt roads are much less icy than the east west.I think it must be the southern Exposure.
    Lots of runoff water on slanted areas that will be freezing later today.
    The tkcs were crushing through most of the ice slush, but not where it was really packed down by cars.

    I had a couple of exhilarating little slides and spins, but I mostly stayed on the dirt weaving between ice patches.
    Just a quick tag relocation today

    I did a little wiring work on the GS yesterday. I added a Clearwater Lights voltage monitor. What better shake-down run than to head out to find Tantra Farms:

    I grabbed lunch at the Grass Lake Diner and headed back. On the way, I found this "Joy"ous converted barn near Dexter:

    It was a good day for waterproof, heated gear.

    I don't know if we have a rule against repeats, but if you look back on page 10 you'll see that barn has already been tagged by yours truly. :)

    Crap - I knew it looked familiar, but ProEasy and I had been by it twice on a previous tagging excursion.

    Hey, it's a good tag. Let it stand. And since I actually know where this one is, I might actually get it. :D

    You're right. This is the laid back tag o Rama.
    There's no tag police In This thread reminding you something was tagged back in 1997.
