What happens if you refresh it? Dustin and I checked two different computers and it looks ok from our end.

Oldhighway, I was going to snap that pic and post it as my tag as a joke (and to get it done and get out of the rain) - glad I didn't lol. We went for hot food instead. I tell you, the tags in plain sight are the hardest! That was a stumper that I have driven, ridden or walked past a million times. It was a good one.

Kudos for getting out and grabbing it, what a miserable day in Columbus, Ohio.

While rainy, it was actually a great ride. I don't mind riding in the rain.

For everyone going down to Cincy - have a great weekend, wish we could go too.

It sounds like the Cincinnati trip was great! Now that everyone is back in C-bus on this gorgeous day, is anyone playing tag? Does anyone want a hint?

Can you see the pic, Twojacks?

Like one of Dustin's earlier tags, this tag is visible from the freeway. In fact, it's visible from two freeways.

And now that I think about it, I would go as far to say that if you are paying attention, it's visible from three freeways.

Ah Smets, I think I know where this is. Unfortunately, with the confluence of rain and cold temperatures, I have been power less to get out and make the tag.

If it is nice on Saturday I may be able to get there, otherwise I will have to abandon all hopes . . .

My bike goes into the shop for belts and rollers, the shop closes at 3:00 so I am going to ride up until 2:30.

Hint:
Shop of many colors, but beware: you could cut your finger, you will find the path is narrow and bumpy along the way.

Bummer - I thought I would get this posted before the hint came.... It took me a while. I knew right away that I recognized the window... But it took about a day or so to place it.


It's the side of Franklin Art Glass. Its a great shop for all kinds of hard to find glass and stained glass. Its a cool place to look around.

I took this next one a while back (note the HippoHands), but never got a chance to post it... I thought it would be fun to discover a park hidden in plain view.

Ya know after what I went through at WKRP and the cold weather I am starting to give hipo hands a more serious consideration. But any way I found your tag minus the hippo hands

Discovery Park on E. Broad ST.

So Twojacks,

You got your scooter back from the shop. How's it running after new rollers and belt? You notice improvement?

(btw, was just kidding about you know who; they always do great service on my scooter)

Sorry for the delay, just now finding the time to log on.

Once a year in June it will blend into its surroundings, some might even call it a Art bar.

Or maybe THE MAIN BAR.

Today was not my day. I got to the tag (which I passed coincidentally after I decided I had just better get my errands done) and found that even though I brought the camera, it had no media card. Fortunately (for me, anyway) I had my phone.



So I take off for the book store where they have none of the books I wanted. I am barely on my way when I start to splutter and stall. Repeatedly. I limp back home (after fueling up, just in case) and here I am without the next tag.

I'll post the next one in the next day or so after what will hopefully be a miraculous overnight recovery.

We would love to, thanks. It will very much depend on whether my bike will run, but even if mine doesn't, Dustin can go.

We are planning to be at the Art Hop/Eurobike Night this Saturday. How 'bout you?

I haven't planned the ride, yet. If someone has a route they want to do, I'm happy to take a turn some other time.

Here we go, and I apologize for the delay. It's not hard but it's better than nothing now that it's Thursday.

We found it Not too scary although we were greeted by the building owner and our intentions were questioned. Try explaining scooter tag to someone who doesn't ride or have any interest in what we're doing. . .

Smets, this is the old mill near the corner of King and Olentangy River Road, next to the railroad tracks.
