Good find -- I had no clue on that one.

And I definitely approve of the change in the weather here in L.A.
Have done 190 miles in two days, one day to S.O. to pick up a floor mat and your tag and down in O.C. for two more tags that I haven't posted yet.

In olibear's tag the "...creation ...NS" was probably someone's recreation department's garden. Once I heard it was around JPL I could look at green areas in Google Maps and could find it, saw it on street view, just waiting for the weather.

New tag:

Yermo has been around for over three decades -- find him. Hey! I'll make it easy, you can find him in several places.

What can I say, I'm good. For 45 years as a CommTech I was the best because I pick up the clues from the client. "How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?" -- Sherlock Holmes. Example: http://www.dslretorts.com/Paladin/archives/000005.html

It also helps that I have been playing on communication computers since 1981, was on the Internet with Windows 3.0, remember when Webcrawler was the only search engine, was a Beta Tester on PacBell Internet.

Where I have problems is on motorized vehicles. I can drive any vehicle, but I can also break any vehicle.

Hi MVers, okay I haven't played LA scooter tag in a long while and I see this thread has been sitting idle for some time here. Is this current tag located somewhere more likely posted in this tag game? http://modernvespa.com/forum/topic35459


Not trying to upset, just asking.....

No, it is two miles south from Los Angeles City Haul. It is a giant bottle of Coke in L.A., should be easy to Google and find where it is.

technically it's been done before (see tag #184 in the list below), but i think we should still let it happen....

The older tag was the building that looks like a ship, with portholes and the bridge.

That's true. I guess I could go grab it, but I'll leave it open for someone else to tag it......

Next up...I know you are thinking WTF, a food truck?? This truck is usually parked on the same street & the truck doesn't serve. But across the street you can get a yummy cheap taco when you tag.

I'm planning to head out that way is for the coffee run next week, but don't have much business out that way until then. That said, none of my usual groups has anything scheduled this weekend, so I might give it a shot.

I do know the feeling though; I've got a tag wasting away in the Long Beach thread myself.

Haha, I saw that you are still waiting for your tag as well. I frequent the Target in Manhattan Beach, but this weekend is out, so perhaps I might be able to get that one next week if nobody else does.

You scratch my back......

What.
I don't think these posts are responsive to the thread.

Has this fellow's account been hacked?

Seemed to have a not-unusual posting history up to Nov. '2011... vanished suddenly, and now two years later, this.

Also -- Bryan, do you know if that mural is still there? When you tagged it back in September, you mentioned it was a temporary installation.

Hey Rusty,

I am not sure if the mural is still there, my guess would be that it isnt. I will be in AZ until Dec. 30, so I cant verify that now. Feel free to start a new tag!

I rode Santa Monica from the east end of WeHo at La Brea to the sign saying I was entering Beverly Hills. I looked everywhere, did not see it. My wife says my videos make her dizzy.:
While riding Santa Monica Blvd, in WeHo, I saw a horse:

From the video, and a better picture of the horse.

Can we tag the horse, or at least the space if they moved it?

Member Oilbear compiled a spreadsheet on Google Docs that lists all of the tags here:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AjedXmv61zutdDQzWUZMZ1h6d3FaRjZKMGp0LXR2blE#gid=0

It doesn't always give the locations, but you might be able to figure some of them out through Google Maps or the like.
