I foresee some whining over this one

I might have to go get this one but don't know when I can.

Great job Maribell! I never noticed it from I-35 until after I took the photo (that's one of my back-up photos...).

As soon as someone saw me take the picture, two other women flocked to take pictures of it too.

I am guessing that is a pretty common thing to do. I really look big in this picture. I'll have to take a new one when I am done losing weight.

otter space tag
I got to find some kind of Oasis to sit quietly and figure this one out. . . .
Maybe midnight, put my camel to bed with Maria Mulduar, (obscure ref for the young folk)

There is another way, but it is definitely the scenic route. However, if you can get up early and do it, it would be a fantastic ride.

You could do it Just wear bicycle shorts and pretend to peddle... You'll fit right in.

I've been busy with work lately, so I haven't had a chance to research the current location and figure out where it is. If any of you who *have* figured it out but are hesitant/scared to go get it are interested in joint tagging it (i.e., safety in numbers, if that applies), I'm happy to join you. Just let me know (PM me).

I decided to put this one to bed so our "under 200cc" participants can look forward to something more attainable. Tag! The Oasis. Good grief . . . and I gave pudNrider a hard time for the Southpark Meadows location. It was a quick, but hot ride out there this afternoon; took about 25 minutes each way from downtown (I rode like a bat out of hell). I haven't figured out the next tag location yet, so don't be gettin' all impatient with me now Stubborn emoticon

Waah Waah Waah...

I enjoy when the tag gets a little challenging from a 'how do I get there standpoint'. There are many tags more up north that I cannot get because of my schedule but I just wait for someone else to get them and bring them down south. It is fun seeing things from Austin where I don't normally travel.

Too funny that this is the next tag, as I just saw that for the first time on Monday and wondered if it was a park or someone's yard.

Then I think I'll wait on the first clue until I hear from someone else who needs one. Have fun on your vacation.

Scooter Vandals
A bit upset at my condo.

Someone is deliberately tampering with my scooter.
Gum on brake, 1st time,.
ok funny.
next they cracked my speedometer window, with a fist punch.
next, pulled my wires out from under the chasis, no brake tampering - yet.

Next, yanked my right mirror, 180 around, tweaked it.

Somebody seems to be pissed at me or my scoot.
Dont know why.
I park it under the stairwell, by the bike racks, completely out of the way, not taking up a parking spot, nor blocking any sidewalk area.
( thought that was a good will gesture)

Not called cops yet, trying to spread word to neighbors to keep watchful eyes, I want to catch these vandals.

Happens at night, late, folks asleep.
I go out each night late and check on it,
really give good look over all, before riding .

Scared a bit, angry; hurt.
Feel violated / targeted. Warned . . .

Anyway
BE SAFE out there!!
Nerd emoticon

man! told ya it'd be best to get you the scooter cover (which you can kinda lock to your own scooter so that it doesn't get uncovered)
that way it's protected a bit more.
and worse comes to worse...get it on video, and press charges on the rascals. we want you ridin' safe out here with us mate...


and to all: I got the next tag, just waiting to get home to post it.
