That sign is key. But .... so too are the animals depicted in the mural.

Little White is somewhat hidden behind the large sea dragon. So many tourists on this grey Sunday, it was hard to get a decent shot.

Welcome back to the game!

The object of San Diego scooter tag is to tag a location in san diego rather than an 'item' like a flag.

Do you want us to try to find that specific flag's location?

Tagging general types of objects, or general categories is what the Nationwide scooter tag does..

The place where the 55 gallon drum barrels is having a event this weekend. They will be removing barrels and repainting. Local street artists and the public can join in. I might go and try.

So, i think I know where I can see 'Moonlight' during the daytime, especially since I saw you last weekend scooting on PCH in north county

I'm curious if the barrels are still in place, since your last comment hints they might not be there tomorrow

I rode up the coast on Monday, and saw the new barrels.

This time i poked my head in the Rhino Art shop to see a vintage 2-stroke Vespa mounted to the wall inside the shop! Pretty nifty.

The espresso machiato I had next door at Lofty Coffee was prettty much perfect. Worth a trip is one is in Encinitas.

Now, go tag my Rail Trail, everyone

i had gone to work thinking i could get some stuff done, only to find the system down for maintenance. seeing you jamming on the stella made the day better.

and to think i used to do the fwy on 8" vespa wheels......16 and no helmet....


your tag is a bit far for me. i will hope someone brings it back a bit south.

DirtyRAT and I must have been separated at birth or something. We frequently come up with the same tag locations. This one's from way back - Nov 1, 2007.

Instead of making DR post another, how about we keep moving forward?
Up next, San Diego has lots of beautiful beaches. This is one of the only ones I know of that has palapas.

I searched Coronado and Mission Beach, and a few other beaches, coming up short.

With the short daylight hours, many of us left playing squeeze tag searches in on the weekends, but I've got the next week off work to go find it!

Had to bump this. I lived in San Diego from '84 - '94. It's still my favorite city, and I head down there whenever I can. Gelato Vero is still my all time favorite coffee house, and the best gelato in Southern California, bar none, including L.A. and Santa Barbera!

This thread made me homesick for San Diego!!!!
