    Oh come on dude......thats not the same thing. I gave the hint of a land mark that is almost a mile wide (the river), which side of the river it is on, what county its in, and you can see from the picture that there is a DAM and hydroelectric power plant.........15 min on the internet using google and you could have the location nailed in no time. :deal

    Or you could just know what the picture is of...

    Holtwood-Dam.jpg

    Holtwood Dam (also Holtwood Hydroelectric Dam, Holtwood Hydroelectric Plant, McCalls Ferry Dam) is the oldest of three major dams built across the lower Susquehanna River, and the middle location of the three. It was constructed as the McCalls Ferry Dam between 1905 and 1910 by the Pennsylvania Water & Power Company. The dam was renamed Holtwood in honor of two company executives.

    Apology accepted.

    The new tag will be posted either tomorrow and Sunday and will be moving out of York County, most likely towards the west.

    Or that :lol3

    Another useless tidbid. My great grandfather was crushed to death in a construction accident while helping to build the power plant. Also, if you head back up 372 towards 74 you pass Flaharty Rd. Me being a Flaharty and such, you can guess I spent quite a bit of time in that area growing up.

    So.....Skyclad, are we just gonna keep playing a game of chicken to see how far we can get each other from home?

    lol, true the state is only 4-5 hours wide but that's still alot of ground to cover in the evenings after work bro... weekends are spent alot of the time with my daughter right now. i guess some of us just aren't fortunate enough to have alot of riding opportunities. but still i'll be playing when ya'll get out my way just a tad bit more ;)

    OK, I was just being a PITA.:D

    But I do have a good spot picked out already on this side of the Commonwealth. I'll just make sure I come over that way to get the tag first.

    Oh, not to worry. I am going to be riding a bit this weekend. Mind you, it is not going to be another round trip to Meadsville in one day, but I suspect there will be more than one gas stop.

    Nice job guys.

    I grew up in Lancaster and lived near Pittsburgh for some time.

    PA has so many great things to use for tags.

    Have a great game.

    Well, if I have the time available, be careful how far to the northeast you guys place the tag. I would just love to be the Yankee raiding VA Tag-o-Rama.:deal

    I am all for cross playing. Just gotta make sure to drop the tag in the state it belongs to. Could make for an interesting twist on the game.
