You're missing the picture of your scooter in front of the tag spot, if you intended to 'tag' the location.

Vista aint that far if you're on a P200...

Crap! I am sorry, but the thought of a nice carnitas taco got all worked up.

Carnitas Shack. I couldn't get it from the same view point, because of the traffic and the line in front, but here it is:

hmmm....we're on a food tag streak!

Perhaps Quasi will send us to some great eatery on our next tag?

Here you go.
There isn't a restaurant in the pic, but if you are framing this picture, there is a fantastic sandwich place right behind you. Italian too! One word of caution: you won't be able to get this pic on Sunday 12 April.

Tag: Fallbrook, Main street shops @ Alvarado st.

On Quasimoto's recommendation, I *did* stop for a sandwhich at Dominick's, after what felt like the slowbie tour up to Fallbrook via Vista/Oceanside's back roads..

Took the hack for a ride from Fallbrook to Encinitas, met up for breakfast with GRSCUM from MV.

Here's the tag pic:

Who says there's no free lunch?
Here's the next tag location, and if you are the first one there, you can walk up to the register, tell them you are playing scooter tag, and there is a gift certificate for you to claim...use it for a lunch!

Hot tip: they're closed on Sunday (if you want the sandwich.)

Next tag: This isnt New Orleans, but paddleboats can still be found this far west.

Hint: This Belle of the Bay doesn't sail often, but can be seen on scheduled trips...and is not visible from it's berth(s).

The tag is the steamboat.

Tag! I think I found it...
I think I found the latest tag...at the Bahia in Mission Bay? My husband sometimes plays a jazz combo gig at the bar and around 11pm all the krunk people off the river boat come through the door...at first I didn't believe him...yeah right a river boat...huh? But here it is

Next Tag...Don't forget to walk The Plank!

Congrats on your first successful tag, Nadzilla!

You are correct: it's the Bahia Belle paddle boat, and your photo is at the Bahia Hotel in south mission beach.

I could swear your new tag has been done already, but I'm not absolutely sure. Perhaps KS7877 or Mmehren would verify this?

Either way, your photos are very good. Who do you use for online image hosting to post photos? I'm considering switching from PicasaWeb..

Thnx DirtyRat! I posted hoping my new tag wasn't already done but I didn't feel like sifting through all the pages....sorry about the redundancy!

I just took the pix with my phone and uploaded from my Mac...

Who wants to sift through 80+ pages? Not me...
FYI, the first post from KS in this thread has a map to Tag locations that is partially complete. I often use the map to find areas of the county without any tags. I hope that helps your future tag spot hunting efforts.

FYI -Older tags tend to disappear as newer ones post on the map, I've heard, due to a cap on the amount of location markers allowed.

I already know where your new tag is...heheh

No, the map is an easier way to search for previously tagged spots, rather than searching 80 pages.
I offer the resource suggestion only because I myself have fallen prey to tagging a location already done.

Just an FYI, not a directive. Welcome to the game!

You have to let another rider tag your photo above. Not sure why you would submit two photos.

Yes, I had the most incredible Cafe Cubano: a short 8 oz. Macchiato/Cappuccino made with brown sugar in the portafilter holding the espresso.

The end result is addictive, mildly sweet, and a powerful pick me up for the long trek back from Imperial Beach.

Go get it!

Yes, a planned date/time allows us to bend our schedules

I'm free after 10 am on Saturdays, so any time after that generally works (or Sundays works for me)

Perhaps meet/greet for coffee, then a ride through Jamul (near ModKuo's Airfield tag), or maybe a jaunt down to IB then up the Coronado strand?

Thanks mm..
I still have the shamrock, but now finally have a sweet Arai full face!
Oh and now the bike is in the shop for 7000 service, so the tag'll occur in another day or two. Sorry everyone!
