Nice work Earl, you beat me by 1.5 hrs on that 'sweet tag' (I see what you did there, jhop 8) )

So, does your new tag involve hopping on any freeways, or east county hills? That photo looks like some camp store or a rustic shop in Alpine...

..Just wondering if my little 150cc is up to the task!

Hmmm....
Hills = yes, but no freeway work is necessary. I'd think your 150 would be fine, but be warned I've no experience with scoots other than my MP3 500; with ME on a 150, it might be tough.

I'd still try it, though Razz emoticon

For what it's worth, it's a bit more than 8 miles from Alpine. If you're a bird.

Your Stella can make it. A group of us rode up to Julian and down to Borrego Springs and back last Sunday, one on a Stella. Got a little hot on the climbs, but made it anyway. You'll likely have lots of company, riders that is, when you get there.

I'm out on this one: hills and back country roads are not for me and my shitty little scoot. Seems like a fun tag! I'll wait for things to get more central.

Having used up my riding time/nerve for the weekend, perhaps mmehren or other east county riders (jhop?) can snatch this one up?

I like the resurgence of Murals in scooter tag, so I snapped a nice shot of one mural for my next scooter tag in waiting using my new Nikon AW100 water/shock/freeze/n00b proof point and shoot camera.

See you all on the road...(or sidewalk)

I may be a fish, but even a hook that large doesn't tempt me this time. ; ) If someone else is riding out though, pm me or email me before and I will keep you company on the ride.

Busy, busy with that necessary evil known as work, but may try to get the tag this weekend. I'll either be heading into the valley of tag or visiting Mom's for some apply-goodness.

Sunday may be too late... At least, for this particular tag. 8)
(yup, too late, sorry...) It'll be cold and wet and windy on Sunday anyway.

went on a nice 60mile ride with JHop to get this tag and the next.

here's the tag:

So, where was Earl's tag? Julian? or somewhere near there?

I'm surprised Jhop has not objected to the obvious inclusion of signage in your next tag

Noting the "wink", did I leave the impression I objected to signage? I hope not. What I said, which I didn't intend as an objection, was this: "Tags which clearly identify the location, such as a sign with the name of the restaurant, bldg, etc do not interest me, but certainly might others.". Italics mine, for clarity.

Moving on, the ride was terrific. Lyon's Valley Trading Post, Jamul. I just tagged along, so to speak. Sorry you felt your scooter didn't have it in her to make it. Having been there when the current tag was shot, I think it unfair to grab it myself. Good Luck all.

Map
For those interested, I've been marking the tags on the zee map in my sig line. If I ever get around to it, I'll start to update the tags from 2007 and on. If possible, I'll mark the different years with different colors.[/list]

The map is a great addition, isn't it. BTW, it isn't 60 miles to the current tag, it's almost all flatland and no significant hills are involved. I say "significant", which to me means without stop lights, fast food outlets or a "beautiful view" .

Sorry to hear about Blanca (scooter? wha happa?). I'd say grab the tag sooner than later, since one member already messaged me he knows where it is but is nursing a cold.

Here's hoping the BFU (boyfriend unit) can part with his scoot for long enough to let you tag the mural, or at least let you ride two-up!

I second that notion of posting all tags on the map! It would surely assist with several tasks:

- finding geographical areas needing a tag or two

- ruling out already tagged locales without having to do a keyword search

A Trading Post, 12473 Woodside Ave Ste C ( Los Coches Road and Woodside Ave), Lakeside. I was searching for teepees and/or wigwams and found a travelers review that mentioned this. I google-earthed the location before riding out.
