Amos Robinson's "WE-E-E-E-E-E" on Voigt Drive near Campus Point Drive. It's a permanent installation in the Wolfstein Sculpture Park at Scripps Memorial Hospital, La Jolla, California. I love that the girl's hands are off the handlebars, arms flung wide, head back and her hair is streaming in the wind - can almost hear her joyful "Wheeee!"

There are lots of Robinson's kinetic sculptures around San Diego. Next tag is another, just a little north of DirtyRAT's

New Tag: not too far away from KS's tag

This location used to be a waterfall, but now it's just concrete ridges. Frigging drought.

Sorry for being slow to tag, JHop. I've been there twice - forgot the camera the first time and had a dead battery the second. I'll get it Sunday (unless someone else gets it first). Congrats on filling in your map! Looking forward to hearing your road stories.

Tag: somewhere close to my tag, but I forgot where I took this ...LOL.

Maybe Jhop recalls the Sorrento Valley location for his tag pic? I've had this pic on my camera for weeks..

I believe we may need a hint. The bricks look like MB aquatic center or any public works building along Mission Bay, but could be anywhere. There are pools a few places up and down the coast. Googling with the image only brought up the original, which duplicates or is duplicated by another hundred similar images.

I prodded, poked and generally annoyed DR for a hint over the week-end. He said he thought I knew where it was. I could only think of two places: La Jolla High School or the Olympic Training Center. I rode by the school on my way home last Sunday. No luck. Wanna ride out to Chula Vista this Sunday? JHop? mmehren? Anybody?

Karen...if three weeks goes by and there is no hint, I'd be all for picking another spot to re-start the game. Summer is here, Amerivespa is over, it's time to play scooter tag. It will be making it's way north when you least expect it.

I haven't really made much of an effort to find the tag, Len. Just thought if I pestered Russell, he might spill the beans. Turns out he's as tight lipped as you and Matt. I've got time to ride Sunday. Wanna come with?

Would love to, but we already have plans for the weekend. Let's do another scooter tag breakfast soon...I will scoot down south this time for it.

I think I'm available to ride tomorrow. And planning another tag b'fast is a great idea. Hopefully, we'd get a chance to meet some of the newer taggers and get reinvigorated...

found it? Pedestrian Bridge across I-5
From the bottom parking lot off President's Way, Balboa Park

I thought I found it, but now am not so sure when I see the photo I took on my computer. I see no graffiti on the walkway in my picture, and there's a lot more tree growth covering the bridge now. I didn't want to stay long as there was a homeless encampment just below and some fellows down there were making some not cool comments.

Let me know if this is it, mmehren!

that's the bridge!
good work. not sure about the graffiti, it might have been Crayola and washed away since I snapped the pic... you know how they love to tag with non-permanent media

hope you didn't ride all the way across, it's stairs on the other side and hard to go down


on a different note, I think we're going to try to do a tagger breakfast and maybe ride on the 28th!

I'm heading out right now to get another tag, but am thinking my proposed spot has been tagged before. I recall seeing a list that someone (mmehren?) made of previous tags. Does anyone know what page that is on?

mmehren, I did not ride across the bridge, thought that woulda been neat to do! And re breakfast, I hope to be free for that for sure,

I would have given a hint, but it seems my 'new message in this topic ' emails weren't being sent by this forum, so I didnt think to periodically check the thread.

Glad we're picking things up again, and glad that my verbal hint to KS worked:

"It's a mural on one of the main roads leading to Amerivespa's hotel site"

Go get this next one...it should be easy, and not far from the last few tags

This was a tough one for me. I happened to see DirtyRAT at Vespa Motorsport about a month or so ago. He confirmed my suspicion that the tag was in Mission Hills I whined that Google had not been my friend searching on flower / floral mural, etc.. He pointed out that the tag pic had a bus stop in it and encouraged me to try again. This time I had better luck confirming the location but had run out of time to get the tag. Now that I'm back from my scooter sojourn, I get to move the game along. I'm lucky y'all are a bunch of slackers Razz emoticon
