I am quite certain the Westenders would be interested. www.westenders.org.

It's sunny and the streets of Seattle are covered in scooters. Let's do this!

I'll start things off nice and easy.



Okay, go!

Scootertag is when one person takes a pic in front of a landmark and someone else finds the monument and takes another pic then posts it. Then you're "it.". First person that takes the pic and posts it takes a new pic in front of another "local" monument and so on.

Looks like Seattle is way too cool for scooter tag.

I had to get out today and did a quick ride to Richmond Beach.

I'll make it easy to start again:
Anywhere you can see both water and mountains.

Finally got out to West Seattle... unfortunately my phone was not cooperating so had to use a tablet camera.

Now to find the next mysterious Seattle landmark....

I was just thinking I would go do this today, since I decided to play hooky from work and I need to figure out how to get to West Seattle without getting on the bridge. (Actually, I woke up not feeling well, but some extra sleep seems to have taken care of that.)

Guess I'll just have to go randomly riding around town for no particular reason instead.

Well, voneschenbach has already tagged me, so West Seattle is done for now... we now await voneschenbach to post the next pic, so we go there instead.

Of course, you could still go and take picture in West Seattle. Also, part of Insanity this weekend is held in West Seattle, so we might end up there, anyway.

I apologize for the longest scooter tag on record. I thought I had posted the 2nd photo months ago and can't even find it now. A new one however should do the trick:

Today there is a lot of rebuilding and redesign so it's no longer possible to park as in the photograph

I'm feeling similarly stumped. Is it somewhere in/around Magnuson Park?

Jump Start
Is it against the laws of scooter tag to hijack this thread? The season is back upon us and noone had figured out the last location(imcluding me) in 5 months. How about we start this thing up again?[/b]

By all means hijack away

The location was in Magnuson park (formerly known as Naval Air Station Sand Point) near the old physical plant building. That rusting metal thing is visible to folks entering the sports arena's currently renting hangers, the entrance to NOAA and the Mountineers Club.

I suspect that not a lot of people were riding this winter but let's re-set. First one to post a new picture is it.

Hopefully, This location will be easy enough. Just think SW.

I've found it - going to try and hit it up today or tomorrow

*04/18 Crud - it's harder than I thought having time getting there. Though I did just have a tooth extraction.

I'm going to make this happen... I mainly commute and just haven't had the opportunity to explore much or stray from my normal path.

Ok, so I haven't seen this thread in a long time, and I saw this yesterday and got excited. Finally, I've found it, I thought... and I took a picture, despite not being on my scooter.

And then, I come here, only to find out that the location has already been revealed and we've moved on...

Anyway, here it is.



Btw, I'm pretty sure I've seen that totem pole. I guess I'll ride around West Seattle until I find it.

Congratulations! I was tempted to ride out to the totem pole in question and move somewhere north but haven't gotten the chance yet. Hmmm.

Great pic. That one had me stumped...

I'll post a wider view of the pole since there is more than one in West Seattle. Looking forward to seeing the next tag!!!

Rally season pretty much over. Scooter tag is in
Hope to spark this back up again. Here's a double-dose of the previous. West Seattle.
