Okay, I'll bite. Carbon footprint, carbon paper, or carbon as an element?

What do you wear in this weather? Even I got cold in all my gear and it was even colder outside when you went out.

Mostly because of Carbon Black, but I also like Man or Astroman (Made of C02).

I have a pair of ski gloves, a neck gator, two pairs of pants (bottom layer of sweats tucked into socks and a top layer of jeans) and my Corazzo Mens 5.0 thats it...

If its not too cold, I wear my summer motorcycle gloves with my Hippo Hands. But when its this cold, I wear the ski gloves only.

Good tag mural, I have no clue.

You handle the cold better than I do.

It is probably just cold, but with the weekend starting, I thought I might post an early hint....

You can see this mural from the freeway. Yep. Now don't go and wreck your car, but you can clearly see the mural without even trying, you will be surprised once you see it, that you hadn't seen it before. BTW, this is not a "hidden" or "obfuscation" hint. I mean it quite literally. You can see the mural from the freeway.

Happy hunting.

It was a nice day today... I thought someone might run out and get the tag. Due to the weather, I made a decision not to post another hint. Should I? I thought people were just waiting for the weather to break? Let me know.

I think your hints are good enough. I've just had my family in this weekend; left this morning as a matter of fact. Now, the snow is coming.

*argh* I've just been too busy.
But feel free to give hints if you want.

In other news, the Scoot A Q sponsor dinner is tomorrow. Looks like the Cutters want a crowd there, I agree it would look better for the sponsors. (Note, I am not a cutter!) Cutter Link

7:30 PM Wed at Tip Top restaurant. Downtown. Good food, you should go if only for that.

OK, sorry for the thread hijacking.... now back to your regularly scheduled scooter tag.

Five at Five
In case anyone is interested, my wife and I are going to Whole Foods in Dublin on Friday evening for their "Five at Five". You pay five bucks at the door, they give you a wine glass, and they have stations around the store where you get a wine sample and a little sample of food to go with it. We have had some great wines there, and once in a while they throw a good beer in. It starts at 5PM and shuts down at 7PM, so get there early. It's really a great time. We usually stick around and grab a little something extra for dinner. Probably have to take four wheels tomorrow night with the bad weather moving in.

A long overdue tag, for sure.

It's the Mt. Carmel Health Systems building on Broad St. and Sauder. It's trompe l'oeil, and a very good one at that. Even up close it looks like it's 3-D. I didn't have the guts to park on the sidewalk.

The next one is going to be overly easy I think. Let me know if a clue is in order.

We went to the library today and saw your scoots covered in a frosting of snow and ice. Brrrrr.

The only players may be you, me, and the guy you sleep with. Haven't heard from Twojacks and Old Bus Guy in awhile. I think Old Bus Guy is still recovering from your last one.

No kidding. I hope all is well, if you guys are out there. Are the scooters tucked in for the rest of the winter?

Today is gorgeous, so I went out to play TAG.

I told Dustin that I was going to O'Somebody's on High Street. When I got there, I found that it's O'Reilly's and it was packed. Two guys had a good time teasing me about being a tough biker broad and asked if I was coming in to tear the place up. I politely declined, it being I had other things to do this afternoon.



Here's the next one. This one should be...um...what's that expression? Easy...easy...oh, wait...it will come to me at some point...

I was hoping to see you all out riding and tagging this weekend. I got to take a ride around Delaware today, which was just what the doctor ordered. I had been dreaming of Vespa riding all week.

I am officially ready for spring. Too bad it's still a ways off.

The farthest I got on Saturday was to pull the Vespa out in front of my house and back into the garage. But once the weather is cooperative, I plan to spend more time playing scooter tag this year.

Thanks, Twojacks. That thing makes me really happy when I carry all those weird odds and ends around with that usually get tossed in my bag. Weren't you getting your seat fixed up or something? How did that go? It's nice to see you around. How's Old Bus Guy?

Obviously no one is out scootering in this weather, but does anyone want a hint on the tag...something to ponder until the ice melts?

I bought a lowered seat off of Papasmurf can't wait to see how well it works out, it has a lot less padding I hope I can stand that on a long ride! We will see,if not I still have the other seat.

I am so sorry -- I offered the hint then disappeared. Between various illnesses, snow days and flat out frigid weather, it slipped my mind...or went into hibernation.

If you get out to ride today, stay inside the outerbelt, east of the Olentangy river and west of Alum Creek. Judging from the water levels, that area is just slightly narrower than in the past.

Stay safe and have fun so you can enjoy a long stay in this amusement park we call life. 8)

Say what? It's not like it would be a *long* ride to the tag...

Add one more for Spring wishes. There were several bikes in front of Stauf's this morning around 9 or 9:30. I was jealous, even though it would take longer to ride there than to walk for me.

Okay, this one threw me for a big loop. After carefully scanning the entire river on Google Earth, I discovered it. Just off of Kelso and High, behind Sunset Cove.

You go, Gary!

It's practically across the street from the last tag, at the back of Olentangy Village apartments...which used to be an amusement park.

I hope to get out and about later, if D gets home at a reasonable time. 8)

The amusement park that used to be located where Olentangy Village is now is the old Olentangy Park. In the early years of the 20th century Olentangy Park was once the largest amusement park in the United States.

"Take that Cedar Point "(statement made circa 1917).

BTW - I think I know where this one is - if my scoot wasn't covered in ice... I think I am ready for spring.
