Twojacks, you won't have to go back to Missouri. I hear you can get a steak among other things at this eatery in the COW.

Shoot, if I weren't on school duty tomorrow, I'd meet you for breakfast at the tag with the colorful flags. If you're still cruising on Wednesday and D is home to hang with O, I'll meet you for some stew and a beer instead.

I totally know where this is!!

Usually by the time I check this thread and recognize the spot, someone else has already beaten me to it.

I have a 1 PM meeting just south of here, it's meant to be! Kathy, if you're still up for a ride, call me. (I sent you a PM)

Yea Neela knew it, its not really my tag I just tagged along with her for the company, the weather was gloomy but it was a perfect temperature.
Your are quite the sly dog on this one, I have been by there hundreds of times and never noticed the little alley right there in the COW, Center of Worthington Laughing emoticon You stumped me big time this is NEELA'S TAG

thanks for posting the pics.

Your first clue, if needed, will be given on Nov. 22 (Thurs Turkey Day).
If a second clue is needed I may not give it until Sunday, to give people more time with the holidays and travel and all.

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

Woohoo! I knew you guys would get it. But I'm also glad I sorta stumped you lol.

"COW" is actually City of Worthington. Have you seen the stamp on their city property, like the barriers and cones? They all have "COW" stenciled on them and it cracks me up whenever I see them, like it's some kind of bovine caution.

I don't know about coffee yet. D was planning to be off, but now he's not sure. If he isn't I will be hanging out with O who doesn't have school tomorrow. I'll PM or call you later, whichever is better for you. D rode to work today, so I hope I can sneak out for a little bit tomorrow at least.

Well, I was in Rover's territory up in Detroit and this scooter broke from the brush and started to speed past me when I quickly grabbed my trusty lasso and caught it by its tail lamp at the last instant. Fortunately I had a trailer attached to my vehicle and corralled it pretty easy. Using my canyon dancer and all the ropes, twine, and duct tape I could muster, I managed to get her under control and snugged up in the trailer. This was Big House Saturday so I had to skiddaddle back to the land of the Buckeyes, pronto.

One less scooter in Michigan.

whoops... OK so your first clue will be Friday.
I'm guessing most people are busy/out of town/whatever with the holidays.

Ok, I feel like I've seen that before but I can't remember where. I haven't had time to ride or noodle it out. Plus, I have had several tags lately.

It is nice out right now, though...I was going to ride to do some errands but the stuff I was buying wouldn't have fit on the scooter.

How cold does it have to be before you all definitely stay home? 40 is about my limit, I think. It being windy and/or dark makes it more likely that I will take the car instead. If it's calm and sunny, I might go out in the 30s for a short trip or series of short trips as long as my destination is someplace warm and hopefully serving warm beverages.

It's going to be 52 and wet tomorrow, and mid-40s and dry the rest of the week. If no one else is out in pursuit, I'll work a little harder. 8)

OK, based on the lack of response (totally cool, by the way) I will wait to provide a second clue until Monday night. I just don't want to rush the game with people out for the holidays and busy with family.

Good luck!

I spent the past few days stripping paint off of woodwork... So I've been a little out of touch... not to mention sore... I have absolutely no idea where this is... I'm in the "please give me a hint" group.
Nevertheless, it will be miserable this week... and even with a hint, hell even with GPS coordinates, I doubt I'll make it out this week.

second clue:
this is only about a 5 minute scooter ride from the last tag.
That's probably too much... but I figure with the crummy weather and the holidays it's OK.

Please post here if you are into this, but need more clues. Good luck!

I have a pretty good idea of where this is, but it's too dang cold to take the scooter out (at least for me) plus it's dark in the morning when I leave for work and dark when I get home, otherwise I would rush over.

thanks for posting papazed.

Awww, did I kill the scooter tag? Crying or Very sad emoticon Just kidding. I know the cold and the lack of daylight are hurting lots of people's riding.

If nobody gets it this weekend or people look and can't find it, I can post another clue. Or should this be the tag that retires this season?

Oh my, don't think it's retired! I am as active as I can be, I just don't have computer access until BestBuy gets me back on track. I'm still scootering every day, I just don't get to check the net as often as I want.

I'll take another clue and I don't think the weather is going to stop the tag game.

I'm not ready to retire, either! It's just been a hectic week, and I had the last couple tags so I'd rather see someone else get this one. The soonest I'll be able to get out is Sunday or Monday so if the tag is still up then maybe I'll go for a ride. I have some ideas about where it is but I'm not sure, so I hope there's coffee on the way.

This time of year everything either flies by or slows down like molasses. Right now I know that we are packed, but I am not ready to write off scootin' for the season... Now - I will expect that it might take a little longer that the 58 minutes it took OldHighway7 to get my North Bank Park tag earlier in the year... That still stings. Less than an hour.... urg. Crying or Very sad emoticon I bet that is a record that hangs around for a while... Crying or Very sad emoticon Crying or Very sad emoticon

While life will slow during the holidays. . . don't count us out.

Twojacks, I don't know that I would say I am "doing" the craft show, so much as paying $20 to keep my friend company and taking a few things along. It's in Bexley. If I do this again next year, I will at least have more than three weeks to prepare. I spent one week trying to figure out what the heck to make and the other two weeks panicking about not getting everything done. I will be quite glad when it's over tomorrow.

So, as far as the holiday ride...I suppose it would depend on the weather and of course, the holidays. We will shortly be kicking off the festival of Owen as well, with its various dates to work around.

Has anyone been to the Chocolate Cafe on Northwest Blvd? They have Friday night fondue which is $10/person, all you can eat. They also serve soups and salads, coffee, desserts (obviously) and they have a martini bar. That might be a good way to warm up if we stay around here and go out on a Friday. I haven't tried the fondue or the martinis, I've just gotten coffee and a sandwich there. Owen can attest to the deliciousness of the ice cream.

Hope this helps y'all nail it. I was MIA a bit this weekend, just busy with stuff. Even if this is the tag that retires scooter-tag for the season, I'm glad to hear that so many others are still out riding. Yay!

HI HO, Hey, Scouser and Twojacks, can you PM me your last names? I need them for the Easy Peasey list, if you don't mind. The website is mostly up but I'm still working on it. I am, and forever shall be, a noob.

Yesterday was my b-day so I went out for a short ride to celebrate. It was coooooold.

Found this site in regards to the Loop - June 6-8, 2008: http://www.lakeerieloop.com/index.html

Next rally I was thinking about is the XYL's WKRP 2008 at the end of March; hope the weather is nice enuff around that time. Was wondering if anyone else thinking of going?
