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.

Way to go Randy!  :)

I was hoping the tag wasn't going to have to spend the winter in Balsam Lake.

Got out to the city in question at about sunset but could not find the plaque before darkness set it.  A "bit breezy" heading out there today with the wind gusts across the farmland.  Hopefully another warm day will give me a chance again.

Glad to see the game is still on! I've just been too busy to play, but I'm glad to see it back in Minnesota. Those Wisconsin guys weren't very playful after all!

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.
