    A little over 2 hours if you're going to place HBN is thinking of.
    But not if you actually want to go to the place in the photo!

    HaHa. Awesome. :D

    Bah, 11:30 now and I still can't find it. Anyone else have any luck? I have the route number correct but for the life of me I cannot find it using google. Is this route number listed in google maps or must I find it some other way? I want to get some taggin' done tommorow. Help!

    The funny thing about this was that after I posted the tag to that very strange sounding name, it occured to me that someone might have just scratched the middle letter off "CAMPBELL RD".

    It is in the Rockingham County GIS as Cam Bell Rd.

    So any more clues? I am still looking. Is the hiking trail in the GWNF? I don't think they allow motor vehicles in SNP.

    I am starting to doubt this is in the Valley...but then again neither was the first tag.

    Hm, I didn't think it would be that hard.
    I did just check Google, and the road I was on did not list the route number on Google Maps.
    Oddly, in person I don't ever recall seeing a name on the road--I didn't know it had a name until I looked it up on google maps.

    Well, since it's a nice ride and tomorrow is supposed to be nice, I'll go ahead and make it easier.
    As for the bike manufacture....GO TEAM GREENE!
    As for the Really Fucking Cold part....c'mon guys. Where around here does it get the coldest? This should be easy.
    As for the road name - two words. One is used in a game similar to Musical Chairs. The other describes where you'd find the objects in the game.

    It's not in SNP.
    As for the valley thing...I never intended the Valley to be a restriction...just that the game was intended for inmates who live in the valley!
    It's probably about 35 minutes from Harrisonburg.

    Wow still stumped. Where is it REALLY cold east of I-81? Higher elevations, which are all in national parks. Got no idea about the musical chairs reference. Maybe someone else can give this one a shot in the AM. errr now is am

    Weird: When you wiki musical chairs, it brings up a picture of harrisonburg's community place!

    Look forward to meeting you. You can use my computer to post up the tag once you get it...but I am in Harrisonburg. Elkton has a library but they are closed today.

    I could post the tag shots for you so you don't have to continue back west, unless you want to.

    Melton from Richmond and I are meeting at the tag spot around 9:45 or so if any inmates want to meet us there. Afterwards we will go place a new tag and take a hike. I suspect a new tag will be up around 1:30 or so this afternoon. If you got a problem with that, bruce me! Haven't been bruced yet in Valley Tag :evil (because there are so few playing)

    A beautiful morning for blackberry tea and company from the seat of the confederate states.

    Clues:

    This road can take you over the mountain.
    Civil War
    Named differently on the East vs West side.
    Nearby is an old furnace, look for it through the trees as you are driving in after the bridge.
    Still East of 81
    Roughly 16miles from Runkles Gap :)

    Duck Duck THIS!

    The site of the old furnace here was a rather large camp at the time. Nothing remains but the furnace and artifacts. This camp shared its name with the estate of a former general and US president. His home and estate is on a river in Virginia. See a previous VA Tag of mine for a good clue of his name. There is a VA tag posted on/near his property.
