    This one is a joint-venture, and credit really belongs to @mriderleon . Leon and I were riding the CADS Trans-Florida Rally together last weekend, and I had pooped out 40 miles before the official end on Saturday but he graciously agreed to abandon the trail with me. We were riding directly back to the dinner gathering and Leon zipped off the road into a clearing. I'm thinking - WTH, we're only 5 miles or so from the cold-beer-at-the-end-of-the-road, what's going on?

    He shuffled into the woods towards the other side of the tower, mumbling about tag-o-rama... I had no idea, but I'm thinking now he was trying to duplicate the angle from original photo.

    Just this morning, I happened to see this Tag-O-Rama thread here, and *ding*, the light went on. So, obviously, I'm a noob to the whole tag-o-rama deal, although I've done similar games on other sites - the SOHC Honda forum and the KZ Twins forum, but that was years and years ago. And, I didn't fully read the rulez here yet either.

    So, this is the fire tower at CR359 and US19/98. I'm not sure if this 'counts', since it's not exactly the right angle as the original photo, but it's the same tower. :D

    That's Leon and his bike, of course, and my bike too.

    But he really does get the credit! I was just along for the photo-op. :lol3

    Great job Kirk, but now you have to post another photo so I have another place to ride to.
    This is a bonus. Not only do I get partial credit for the grab, but when you post another photo, I also get to ride there.

    Leon.

    If I'd have made this tag, I would have taken a picture of the water tower, it has more character.
    Does anyone know what the abandoned community on the other side of the road was? It looks like military housing, but the signage seems more like a company town. Anyway, here is a pic of the water tower.

    Replacement for Lacoochee Grain.
    Clay Sink Baptist Church. The name should provide the location. Didn't move this one very far, but it's easy to get lost trying to ride from Lacoochee to Clay Sink if you try to take the little side roads. ClaySinkBaptist.jpg

    I'm not sure KirkN is following this thread, but you're welcome to use this as a replacement for the Firetower.

    This is the first Purple Heart sign in Hernando County. This was taken at the ceremony when Hernando became a Purple Heart County. The rules for these signs is that they must be placed on a county road, not a State or Federal Highway.
