Thanks, but I couldn't get there until late this afternoon, and it's more fun if the tag keeps going. There will be plenty more, I'm sure!

Ah!... I can't believe I drove around there hundreds of times and never noticed the statue! Just like I said, we discover corners of Austin we thought we knew... As a matter of fact I just drove past it tonight in my car, but in the dark I didn't see it... Oh well, at least I knew the last 2, even if I couldn't get there in time...
haha the funny thing is I work only a couple blocks away and I didn't know there was a statue there either. I have been trying to keep my eyes peeled for potential tags so I just noticed it a couple days ago!

Now I have to find some more.

That's funny because now I'm all the time seeing things and thinking, "Oh, that would be a good scooter tag." and then wondering if it was too far or too difficult and when there would be less traffic around it, etc...

That's funny! I've asked various people...usually it doesn't help, but with Chez Zee (and this one, actually!), it did. Woohoo! Laughing emoticon

Your wife should get a scooter, too! Then you could either compete against each other or have two scoots in the photo.

haha I had her sit on the orange S 150 at Vespa Austin and she is too short and her feet didn't touch the floor when it was off the center stand.

I need to save up some more for another scoot I try to only pay cash for stuff. That is why I got a camera on Craigslist.

I would like to get a GTS at some point. I don't know how to get it where my wife can reach the ground though.

Oh and we have another baby on the way. I am going to get her some gear so she can ride with me when I am more confident and she won't be able to ride until long after the baby is born in March. Plus I have to save to furnish the nursery.

That orange S was pretty darn cool. I'd probably/maybe have gotten that if it was there when I was buying. Still, I love my Puddin'!

Congrats on the baby! Definitely don't need to be getting another scooter right now, then. Clap emoticon

In a serious breech of protocol, I'm going to post this pic that I was saving for a future scooter tag site because I realized today that it does infact move from place to place. I see it all the time on my way home in the afternoon but just realized this morning that it wasn't there and I have no idea when it is and isn't there. I thought y'all might get a kick out of it so I hated for it to go to waste. All tags are off. There will be no points and you will not get control over the next posting.

Yeah, that could've been a tough tag . . . trying to take a picture while chasing the van down the road

I know where the current tag location is (it's just a few blocks from my office). Since I just got the University Co-op tag recently, anyone else want to try and get this?

I probably won't have my scoot for the rest of the week so go get it if you know where it is. (I don't)

I am getting pretty excited about my trip. My flight was just booked on Monday and I got my hotel arrangements today. I am staying in a hotel right next to the Heroes Square. (Not that I know what that is besides for some pictures.)

The explosion was crazy. We watched it on TV on channel 8 and it was amazing that you could hear it all the way in Oak Hill. It took awhile for the sound to travel that far though because it was several seconds after they pulled the trigger and we watched it until we heard it at our house.

Heroes' Square is interesting; the statues are pretty wild. It's next to City Park which is beautiful with lots of things going on, including a zoo, a circus, a castle (fake one), food vendors, an ice skating rink and the spa/bath about which I was telling you a while back. If you can go there at night (Széchényi Spa), I think it's probably even more magical than during the day. Of course, it probably helped that it was so cold when I was there and steam was rising off it and lights were twinkling. You should be able to walk to all of this from your hotel, plus at least one subway stop if you dare try it.

Lucky you!

Hmmm hopefully it is warmer I am not allowed to do anything that is steamy without my wife there

I am excited to be next to something fun to do instead of a business park (Normal arrangements for business trips) since I won't have much time after work to walk around so now I just need to walk across the street.

I am considering taking a segway tour they have one for 88 dollars that is for 3 hours starting at 6:30 at night.
