Looks like Curcla is MIA. I'll take another pic this weekend and see if we can revive the thread.

curcla, welcome back and what an interesting spot. I'm going to have to pick the brain of the might search engine before I get on the road for that one.

I made an day of it. Up through Oakland and Berkeley, stopped for lunch in San Pablo, went
across on Alhambra Valley Road to Martinez and then to Suisun City. After getting the picture,
took highway 12 to Rio Vista then went south to Antioch, on to Livermore and then home.
All right, on to the next one.

I shot this on the way to the last tag. Shortly after passing this spot, I passed by the tag before that.

Here's a shot from another angle. This should narrow it down a bit. Weather should be nice tomorrow. Go get it!

Yeah, I think we should span every MVer that lives in the East Bay to see if we can quicken the pace of our tags.

Alright nothing like a quick cool freeway jaunt to the Benecia Bridge.
The ride back was both a little more fun (Orinda/ Moraga/ Canyon backroads) and more stupid (had a little road anger on 24).
So here's the tag.
So here's the tag.
And the appropriate new spot
And the appropriate new spot
In Honor of Veterans Day and the Ft Hood Victims. Should be easy to find. The hard part will be the camera location and angle.
Enjoy!

Congratulations! This is the administrative offices for the Benicia bridge.
Pretty fancy: no wonder the tolls keep going up. Great choice for the new tag.

Guess I should have made this tag Thanksgiving related and not Veterans Day related.

Awesome! That's why I had parked illegally and then laid down on the street to get the angle right. You should have seen the looks on the hotel guests.

I found this on the way home. This is south of Walnut Creek. Unfortunately, you can't see this one from the freeway.

It's all yours. I was on my way this morning and my muffler fell off in Lafayette. Fortunately I wasn't on the freeway. A very kind gentleman did a temporary fix so I could ride home, but I don't think I'll be going very far afield for a while.

Had the rear tire replaced a couple of weeks ago and thought the banging coming from underneath was the shocks. Looks like the muffler wasn't attached properly.

I believe this is our first tag team effort. Great job and hope the ride was fun, as well as chilly.
