    Another photo
    (BTW, the box that Nutsey was in was destroyed/lost when Nutsey made an escape attempt. Jumped off the bike while making a left turn, and took a tumble in the road.)

    I couldn’t park close enough to get it in the picture and still find the best resting spot. Also, the frickin’ cold scrambled my wits.

    Yeah, taking 5 photos of the scenic area was nice, but a simple picture of the nut on the bike, where it was dismounted, would have been in order.....

    Hell, some of us jokingly say if you carry an old bike mirror with ya, and get that in the shot, nobody would question it... especially if ya had a helmet on....

    It really is a simple game, and only has one real rule to follow...

    Merry Cristmas, and happy Festivus to all...

    Choosing not to be a part of the potential following shit-storm. I’ll just ask my question, hang up and listen on the radio.........
    How can we be sure he didn’t brave the cold that ‘scrambled his brain’, and just rode over there in the cage to place the tag?:hide

    I am an avowed avoider of shitstorms. So...as the bike isn’t in the picture, not even a token effort, we should consider Nutsy in play and move forward acknowledging that my effort was not rule conforming nor counting. Parenthetically, I can’t stand driving my car. Better a freezing ride on 2 than the car.

    I hope that somebody grabs it quickly. That looks like a very high traffic area, and parks are always being cleaned up. So, somebody go get it!

    Needs to be moved again.......

    Good job, tnanks for going back, and giving the complimentary photo.. it is a pretty well visited site, as I saw after trying to figure it out from the original pics... lotsa people watching planes there from those picnic tables...
    I hope y'all don't get the weather we have here in Ohio now, after a week of single diget temps, it was 60* yesterday, and all our 18" of snow accumulated since christmas was gone this morn, then the temps dropped this morn, we are in an ice and snow storm once again, and it will be 7* tomorry morn...

    I know the "park" where nutsy is hidden, been there before, and as hard as I try, I can't get the monument to show up in the background, when doing a google maps drive thru by his hiding spot... tricky camera work, but those porta potty's give it the spot for sure...


    I kinda miss the south... just a little...

    Thanx for the bike in photo thing, hope you stayed warm...
    Good job.

    Grew up in Detroit. 66* today and 30* tomorrow. I kinda miss Detroit. (Actually not really now that I remember it.) And... It's frequently the porta potty's that clinch the deal.

    Two month from drop bump. I'm guessing that's Long Bridge Park a little NW of National Airport.

    Nice drop. However, you could not pay me enough to ride over there and make the grab. Only way I go near DC is on a bus tour!

    Isn't really tough to get in and out of that area, many moons ago a pal convinced me to go there to see an A300 land at Reagan, pretty huge plane for sure...
    We were right there within yards of the "hidy spot"... neat place, but I hate driving around there also... the park was pretty cool also, lots of people with tyghe same agenda that day.
    Judging from the huge amount of videos on youtube, its the "hotspot" for filming planes...

    Here's the park it's in. Haven't gone back to look at the pics to drill it down precisely as I'm not heading for it.
