Cool. That would make a good photo tag!
But... While I'm no expert at this, I think ya gotta tag the current one first.

I don't know if more hints are necessary, or if it's just too hot for riding. Anyone who goes out to get it can sit down in air-conditioned comfort for a nice pizza buffet.

There, that should be enough hints for anyone.  :)

Is that in Roswell, NM??  I was recently in that town on my x-country ride and saw all sorts of crazy stuff like that

Finally got out without feeling like I was in a sauna, only to get caught in a thunderbuster around Chaska.  Road as far as Waconia without spotting the tag (did I pass it?) and then got turned around by heavier rain.  Clues are in order.

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?

And no, you didn't pass it Don. Go West, young man!

Well I have to run out west to exchange forms with one of my seasonal staff, I guess I better ride a bit farther and get this tag to get the game rolling again.  Too bad I can't head out until after a mid-afternoon meeting.
I should be able to post some pics this evening.

Yay, go for it, Thomas!  :chugbeer:

I'm wondering if the timing would work... if this game gets moving, and I could snag one late in the week, I might drag it into WI on our way out to Vermont Saturday.

Sorry for posting the tags as a link rather than imbedding the images but it is getting late and I'm not going to mess with the additional efforts of posting the photos elsewhere.

How in the world did you figure that out Don? Did you recognize it as a place you had been? I didn't have a clue and was waiting for some. But I'm pretty sure I know this one, now to get out there....

My marina is just down the street so I pass it every week and noticed the lake through the trees in the picture.  I also attend a wedding there a couple of years ago.

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.

It's been two weeks, anyone needing clues?  Or just time to ride without melting???
