My husband was behind you on Carmel Valley Road this morning - impressed that you were out there early playing tag. I'll get yours tomorrow. I'm pretty sure I know where that is.

All I have to say is Yay! One of my goofy stolen ideas has actually worked.

It is't limited to California folk. Let's do have enough of these so Jess has to create a new forum for Scooter Tag. Lets see if we can get bannination at most workplaces!

Now about that idea I 'borrowed' about organizing the interwebs and making it searchable.....

Aw, GeoEnvi, you're too quick! I was there today and got the photo of the bridge at the park, too. I don't know where yours tag photo is - Little Italy, maybe India Street? I guess I need to do more cruising around downtown.
Thanks VP1 for the inspiration to take a ride around Coronado. It was a beautiful day for it.

ok

Good job finding "Mona Lisa" VP1. Lunch there sounds like a plan for next week. Eagerly awaiting your next tag photo!
(Thanks for the great idea, Ritch. This is fun!)

A.ma.zing.

I only know one Italian restaurant in San Diego, and it is that one! I thought of it when I first saw the picture, but I wasn't sure (and certainly not close enough to ride over and check).

I took this one last week, and it's kinda close to my last one, however, I don't want to keep you guys waiting till tomorrow for a new one. Plus it's a nice place to go. So here you go!

I've got another spot in mind San Diegans if no one wants to get that last one. I think I'll go hit it up today and put a new picture up for you guys to get
unless someone is planning on getting this one..

no no no, don't post another one. It's not how it goes. Someone will eventually go there (hint hint). I just finished animating my new Sig file.

Not exactly the same angle/location, but pretty close. (It was crowded today!)



How's this for the next location? Too easy?

Too easy? Then Tag!!! You're all 'it'! The next photo is (hint) at the end of a President's avenue. If it's too hard, reply and I'll provide more hints. It's actually not too far from Motorsport Scooters!

Sorry for the crappy resolution...hint...it's at the end of a President's avenue.

I know where that is WITHOUT the hints! You might all be seeing a day/night variation of that shot if I get the urge to head out a snap a photo!

Bah! I take that back. I can't figure out where this was taken. That looks like the Mission Valley area, over looking the I-8, and I think I see an off ramp from the freeway going to maybe the 163 or the 805 South. Looking south of that on the map I don't see a Presidents Ave though.
hmmm

Hurry before GeoEnvi snaps it! He said he know where it is even without a clue!

I could be wrong, but I suspect that Rex pulled a "bullshot" on his pic; editing the original to include the 'END' sign.

I waited and waited, but no one else took the bait. So, I snapped this one up on my way home from the "Bronx".

I'll update with a new pic tomorrow.

GE,
It might have been easier for us to tell if the spot was the same if you had taken the pic during the day. But it looks close.

Take a pic of something that is a recognizable landmark. It's not fun if its not famous or infamous.

I knew I was going to catch hell for the crappy photo. My Sony Ericsson mobile phone is nice, but even camphones have their limits. Trust me, it's the same spot.

As for your other statement, I don't agree with you that it's not fun unless there's a landmark. That's like saying flashlight tag was only fun if you were caught hiding behind the neighbor's Porsche instead of in his tool shed...

I don't think photo quality is an issue. (My digital camera is a million years old and the resolution is poor, but it's good enough to get the idea across.)
If Rex is ok with the location of GeoEnvi's post, let's move on to the next location, ok?

That's the one! I'm cool with that. Geo, you would have gotten the "END" sign had you backed up your GT a few feet. It is there. And that is the correct location. Good job!
