I don't know much about the exotic world around town, how about a little clue now that we're back up & running?

I don't either...I'm too old now. If you want to see dancing at this one you'll have to do it yourself...it's been closed for quite awhile. Oh, and it's pink!

Cool, glad to see this has been started back up!

Now, what kind of tag is that to put up when my gf is out of town?!

Ahh.... Yes I did it was on my self propelled cycle this time. Don't know what I hit (it happened early morning b/4 dawn on my way to work) but when I came too I have 5 broken or fractured ribs, a shattered clavicle and massive blood clots in my left shoulder. I'm told 6 weeks for the bones to heal and 6 months on the blood thinner, this is for the clot.

Bummer Lonerider.  I broke my leg skiing a couple of years ago.  I had a blood clot form, undetected, which almost killed me when it let loose and traveled into my lungs.  Pulmonary embolism.  Then a weeks worth of pneumonia.  Then six months of blood thinners which made drinking almost completely off limits.  The good news is I lost a ton of weight. 

I feel for you.  Do what they tell you, especially the physical therapy and good luck!

Lonerider,
Sorry to hear about your mishap.  Listen to the doc clots are nothing to mess with.
Title: Re: MN/WI Photo Tag
Post by: 2fast on May 16, 2011, 09:30:48 pm
Hey Jeff. Very sorry to hear you are banged up again........this has to be very frustrating! Hope to see you out and about sooner than later. In the meantime, you know how bad it is for ANY motorcycle to sit there unused and unloved. I would like to selflessly offer my services to exercise anything in your stable whenever you feel it is needed :grouphug:

Waiting by the phone.........(tongue securely in cheek) Brian

Wow, sorry to hear that. Were you riding on the road or on a sidewalk? I have a friend who broke his collarbone a couple of years ago after going over the handlebars, and he's a fast guy who was on a race team (although his getoff wasn't during a race or even training). It happens to even the best.

Thanks Guys!
Brian: I go out and talk to the bikes regularly They are not being neglected. But thanks for the offer.
Crashcup: I was on one of the on road bike routes and it was a downhill so I was moving pretty good.

In this long-running thread from before, I did not see many WI locations.  Do WI riders play too?  Kinda hard for me to get from Milwaukee to MN to play but I am willing to try during the Summer.  :)

I tried to move it to WI a week ago, but someone beat me to it. I'll keep trying though. WI has some great roads. It was too late the other night.

Lonerider, I share your pain.  When my old C-10 and I kissed the pavement I ended up with broken clavicle (which had to have a plate/screws), 10 ribs, torn rotator cuff & biceps tendor, some internal bleeding, and other "minor" dings.  Thank goodness for helmets, gloves, jacket, etc.  Spent 5 weeks at home and had two follow up surgeries on shoulder related things.  Heal fast without pain brother!

Tagged. The old Sport Wheels location, Jordan MN.
(http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s66/carlskr/b8b0e85b.jpg)

Yep, picked up parts there a few times, and also used to ride some of trails around here.

It was a nice day to get out for a 2-hour lunch  ;D

New tag soon to come....

Post by: Cookie on May 19, 2011, 05:50:22 pm
Lonerider, sorry to hear about the incident. Get well and heal up fast. Things happen. The only way to minimize accidents is to stay under the covers and never take any chances. Of course,  you miss most of the good things in life and end up dying as a bored, dull person. I think I'll take chances instead. I haven't had any near death experiences since Sunday. And no, it wasn't on a motorcycle. Sometimes even fishing can be extremely dangerous. I'm still here and so are my friends, so it's another good day.

Hope to you you riding soon.
Title: Re: MN/WI Photo Tag

This one is Googleable.

Very easy to find with Google-FU

I don't believe it was ever done on this board.

The Sconi riders are a little thinner on this side of the state (numbers wise, not girth). I did put the tag in WI in the past, down in the SW area.

Hint #2 on the current tag:

It's down the road from a store that sounds like it might have green walls, but doesn't.
Title: Re: MN/WI Photo Tag
Post by: 2fast on May 21, 2011, 05:10:13 pm
Crap. My google fu totally sucks. I got the city, found other pics of the barn, I get the green clue, but still no joy. I'd really like to go for a ride and grab it, but stupidity keeps me home.......... :-[
Title: Re: MN/WI Photo Tag
Post by: Crashcup on May 22, 2011, 04:37:02 pm
I'm not sure if there's rules about how often to post hints, but I feel bad about you not getting out for a ride, Brian! (Not that ya really need a good reason).

Hint #3:
This tag is also just a short distance down the road from a spot where the local canines can freely run and frolic and play together.

Now, gotta go fix a sump pump in a cat-stink basement.  :-\
Title: Re: MN/WI Photo Tag
Post by: BackInTheSaddle on May 24, 2011, 12:52:05 pm
Here's the barn with all the weird statues surrounding it on Cty Rd 47 in Plymouth.  I have good Karma now and road blissfully for another couple hours.

Where's everyone else?

Okay, I finally get to claim one, after following this thread for quite awhile.  I'll have to post a new one tomorrow as I didn't think it would still be open by the time I got back from up north.  For those of you wondering, the tag in on the corner of CR 15 and CR19 in Navarre.  The Narrows is a bar on the NW corner which has good food and great music.  Stop in sometime.  Stay tuned for a new tag tomorrow, if I can get my act together.

It's a little obtuse, but I can give some clues tomorrow, unless Crashcup has it already.  Okay, one clue is that it's near a semi famous hamburger stand.
Title: Re: MN/WI Photo Tag

Not too obtuse. I thought I recognized it right away. I've been to Lion's Tap a few times.

Post by: Crashcup on June 01, 2011, 09:48:31 pm
The new tag... I had hoped there would be some interesting info to find about the diving company named on this statue, but no luck. My hints will need to of a geographic nature.

First, have to say to be careful getting a picture here. It's on the corner of a residential street and a busy four-lane. Got my pic on the way home to Maple Grove from the spring tag.

(Cold - I used to be in Victoria until a recent move, have worked in EP and right now in Chan, so I'm familiar with the area)

Post by: Crashcup on June 23, 2011, 06:50:26 am

Found it!  On the main drag in Pine City by a frisbee golf course. This worked out nicely cause I ran up to Dennis Kirk this morning to pick up some new rubba for the Strom.  I may not have a new tag till tomorrow.....short on time right now.

(http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s66/carlskr/ed4afb70.jpg)

Behind the giant head, behind the fence, is I-35. Not W or E. And closer to BackInTheSaddle than it is to 2fast.

Also, be aware that once you find out what/where this is, the photo tag of the Tijuana Taxi is not visible from the road, you'll have to go up the driveway. But there's some cool junk to see along the driveway.

Nice find! 

For anyone who was looking, the place is called Hot Sam's Antiques. Depending on your interest in old stuff, it's a pretty cool place. I want to go back and take some time to look around more.

They have a caboose and another old railroad car on rails. In an old article I found, the son, one of the proprietors, said he eventually wanted to have a whole train alongside the driveway! But he said the city of Lakeville "pooh-pooh'ed" that idea. "They have no imagination!" Hahaha.

That's weird.  When I looked at this yesterday, the picture was the same bunny in So. Mpls.  I was sure you had accidentally reposted the same picture. 

I know where the new one is, but probably won't have time to get there before someone else.
Title: Re: MN/WI Photo Tag
Post by: Crashcup on July 02, 2011, 09:54:15 am
You're right; I did accidentally paste the same bunny pic, but corrected it within a couple of minutes.

Let me know if anyone wants hints. I meant for this to be pretty easy to keep the game moving.

No more hints necessary.  I used to live about 7 blocks from there, although it was still a fire station back then at 46th & Nicollet Ave.  Fun to see the old area again and it led to a ride around the lakes with my son.  Great way to start the 4th!

Point of order:  Isn't there a rule that all posted pics must be current, and not pulled from an archive?  In recent days there are a couple of pictures with bare trees, obviously not taken in July (or June, for that matter).   I thought one had to actually go from one tag site to the next.

Is my memory faulty, or is there no honor among thieves?

Just curious; no dog in this hunt,

Tanks are rather easy to find, but why'd did this city paint their memorial Black?  hmmm....

I figgered Jeff is the "godliest" authority on this photo tag, and he said leave it. But I can post another if desired. (There's a reason for a long lunch break).

For others who don't know the tag, here's hint #1:
The buildings behind Ol' Bessie are a creamery. It's located in a town that has the same name as the creamery.

Yep, kinda bored around work lately. The lull between project phases. But, I just heard the mgmt approved the next 2 phases, so we'll probably get very busy after a week or two.

Okay, taking previous clues a little further:
Bill Austin -> Starkey Labs -> what town out West of the cities has a Starkey facility? (it is the county seat in McLeod County).
Sit down in A/C comfort for a pizza buffet -> How many of these are in that town?

Impressive Don.  I guessed I'd probably have to throw out a clue or two to go with that one but you surprised me.  It is a beautiful property and we're in the midst of updating its cultural interpretive plan (i.e. what we out to do to it to improve people's experience and education on the site).  If you ever get the chance to attend an event where the barn on the north side is open I'd encourage you do it.  The family was well off enough that the barn's siding has mitered corners and other niceties.  It was one of the first gentleman estates to be established on Lake Mtka in the same days as when the Lafayette Club was becoming the first big hotel destination at the beginning of the lake's gilded age.

Two and a half months and no one went after this tag, must have been the difficut hint. Didn't want to see this tag get stuck here all winter so took the bike out on a nice brisk sunny day for a ride that brought me to Balsam Lake for the tag.
The new tag brings it closer to the metro area, the sign says Ignatius Donnelly's Nininger City Home. I became interested in this area after reading a book (Idiot America) that had a feature on the people who tried to develope the area. So go for a ride and learn a little bit about Minnesota history.

Sorry about the photo link with no thumbnail. I am trying to learn how to use my new ifone. Anyone have any tips to offer on photo posting that would include a thumb? This was done with Picasa....

Would anyone object to moving this game over to cog-online? There seems to be more activity over there and it might get moved around more often.

Hmm... I thought there was a pretty big hint right in the picture.

Then again, I dont know where it is yet; maybe it's not as much help as I think.
