    Hahahahahah we wasted like forty minutes looking at each tree in the cemetery.

    It's all good. Fun ride out there after the showers.

    Drop at a location East of 340 that is the habitat of the extremely rare and globally endangered "Helenicum virginicum" or Virginia Sneezeweed

    Another obscure hint is that it is on property that used to be owned by Shreckhise Nursery.

    The final hint (because the first two hints are no help at all) is that the tag can be found at the only clearing on the gravel portion of the road between the Port Republic Battle Monument and the road to the Furnace Mtn trail head

    Drop... on that one road by the river in Verona, you have to pass the camp ground to get there.

    I see you Dean, but I can't get there any time soon. I will keep you on my radar. As you know, I am a stellar tag player...

    Keeping with the campground theme, we crossed the valley to another favorite of mine. . .

    Tag is on the top corner of the column as indicated. It's a much more clean stone than those of the rest of the column, so it sticks out in appearance. Don't let it linger too long or I might have to replace the dingus.

    Rock is at the down-river side of the bridge and wedged between the abutment and the steel truss. On the North side of the bridge towards the dairy farm.

    20200714_201717.jpg

    This bridge is over the Middle River. Unfortunately I don't think they will reopen this bridge.....good thing they just rebuilt the big bridge on Cline River Rd just up river.....

    At the southern end of my favorite road. “Glucose” “Grown sapling”

    I had to ride it since I was out this way. If it’s too far and I need to bring it closer, let me know. I will gladly go get it!

    Although it doesn’t appear like it, the tag is dropped at an extremely contentious location. This mostly wooded 145 acre property was recently purchased by a national corporation for 2.3 million dollars.....yes, right in the middle of BFE.
    Neighbors are going to be a bit wary of corporate types and work trucks but you should be fine with your little two-wheeled dual sport.

    If you do get stopped by someone local, all you need to say is “Fuck Flow Water” :D

    Picked the tag up yesterday on seawright springs road but it was starting to rain, I didn't want to melt.

    20200902_151333.jpg

    So I went home.

    Dropped the tag today at another water supply but in Dayton.

    Rock on a pile of rocks behind my scooter.
