    I got all excited to go get this right away cause I've seen it a million times and I thought it would be a cool tag. So I headed out to Neosho where I swore it was and I couldn't find it....

    So now it's dark and I thought, well maybe it's in Ashippun. Except on Google maps street view the sign and rusty truck are not there. I went anyway and there it was.

    I think it's the giant bicycle that's special.
    Although it is a little hard to see at first.

    I'm usually quite good at Google sleuthing my way for these points, but I can find anything to give me a clue in this one.

    The base of the flag pole looks like a monument or something as well? But I cant make out any identification marks in pic.

    The large bike is what I stopped and snapped the picture for. I was cruising down roads at such random I had to go back to the pictures location details to see where it was! I was just heading in a general direction with the Garmin zoomed out to max that would still show all the side roads. If I saw squiggles I went to check it out!

    I did find a nice (nice for this area) gravel road here:

    https://goo.gl/maps/hvmkRAR9NXA2
    As well as the roads that pass through the Killsnake Wildlife Area.

    I'm no good with riddles so I'll say the location of the bicycle is 6.2 miles away (by road) from the location I have linked above while traveling towards the "old" location.

    Picture 2 of 2 attached.

    I just did a solo TWAT run a few weeks ago. Great route. There are a few detours (not noted on the GPX files) just south of Drummond. The bridges are out in the Porcupine Wilderness area.

    Thinking about doing part of the NWAT next week....

    Damn, I don't think I have any time this weekend, but that's the first one where I actually know where it is!

    For those that bag an old tag cold you please state the general location for the rest of us that are curious to the whereabouts.

    The bike bike and flag was on Lax Chael Rd just south of where it ends at Carstens Lake Rd.



    And the one I picked up yesterday was Manitowoc Country Cherney Maribel Caves, but the tag was from Packer Rd just north of 147.

    I would tag this if I wasn't working all weekend. One of my customers is the next place to the east.
