In honor of Veteran's Day I thought this tag would be appropriate. There really is no more uniquely north OC spot than this to honor our Veterans. This shouldn't be a hard tag to find, but it's probably a place most OCers didn't know existed.

...and to all the Veterans out there...Thank You!

I thought I would take advantage of the great weather and jump into your game. i think the South O.C. game has flat-lined.

Here's your tag. The Bulldog Cigar amd Hookah Lounge (or the Beltone Hearing Aid Center), located at Beach and Ellis in H.B. It looks like a fun place to get your Smoke On! Too bad it wasn't there when I lived in Surf City. Regarding the new tag, I hope I'm not repeating a previous location.

Dang! I knew I shouldn't have hung around the house waiting for the repair guy.
I haven't lived in Surf City for a while now, but your oil field looks familiar. If I'm lucky, the repair guy will show up early tomorrow so I can go for a long ride and find your tag.

I haven't had time to ride up to OC to look for your oil field tag. However, today we were driving back from LA and took a bit of a detour to look for it. No luck. I don't know if it was because it was dark or because it's been too long since I was a resident.
Anyway, if anyone else knows the spot, the tag is yours. If y'all are waitin' on me, I need another clue (and more time - can't get up there until after Christmas).

Welcome to the game, Akrimonious! Yesterday was a gorgeous day to ride around the sunny so Cal beach areas.

Thanks for the hint. Unfortunately, I'm out of the game for a bit - at least until a week or so into the new year. So next time you're going for a ride, grab your camera and get this tag.

I know right were this is, and for some reason I have had difficulty in finding the right combination of 1. Having the time to ride when it's not dark and/or pouring rain, 2. Remembering to get the tag when I ride (literally right past it), and 3. Remembering the camera (yes boys and girls, tag+scooter and no camera, DOH!). Geesh - I haven't had such bad luck in getting a tag yet. I think the Xmas blues are getting to me.

I think I am down until maybe Sunday or so.

Steve,
it was back then that I played on it and had my first date with my wife at the Fish Fry in 1980. I was only 15 she was 14. Wow that was a long time ago.

BUMPITY BUMP
The first tag that I had was of the LIDO theater on
LIDO Peninsula going towards the Lido island, Then
I had the tag at the beginning of the Santa Ana
river outlet between Huntington Beach and West
Newport Beach, Then I changed it to the Dukes
restaurant, It can't get any easier than this.
Is this tag still going?

I think most of us know where ALL of your tags are / were. In fact I rode from San Diego to Newport to tag the Lido. By the time I got home, you decided to change it.

If you would be patient and leave it alone, the game will progress.

If you tagged it, I would just post it, especially if you have a new tag to add. There aren't many rules here, but getting your own tag, or posting multiple tags seems to be a little too much.

As for the game, I have to apologize to everyone, and especially to my scooter for being incredibly pathetic lately. Too much work and no play makes Jack (umm, Dean) very dull indeed.

Let's focus on a tag...what's it going to be?

I was waiting, but thought I should wait no more....as far as I can tell, this was the last real tag. I forgot to get the name of the theater in the picture, oh well, it's The Regency Lido theater in Newport Beach.

I'm so lame that I deleted the pics I took. Rode back up again today to re-take 'em. And I think I saw you going south on Brookhurst at around 4pm.

Your new tag pic is beautiful, Dean. I have no idea where it is.

I got it
When I arrived the rental cops were everywhere.
So I wasn't able to ride up to it, I got a photo of
it down the walk. It's up to Dean whether or not
to accept it or not, I hope Dean does accept it
bec I got a new tag spot ready.

I wondered how hard it would be to snag this one during the week. On the weekends its pretty desolate there, very quiet....and no security. I came through the parking garage between the buildings and there was no one around at the time.

Generally I think you should have a tag with the same area, but considering how slow this game is and that fact you did the work to get there, I say close enough is good enough on this one.

BTW its the Noguchi Sculpture Garden and is located in between a bunch of buildings near Anton and Bristol. It's behind Mastros/Savannah restaturants. Interesting place.

Let the game continue....next?

All right Yardsale, I can't really say too much since this tag was about a mile from my house (of course there are a few others out there that are also close, so my excuses are not the only ones).

Segerstrom Concert Hall, very near a few of the tags on here...

Here's a new one, but not really. It was tagged before under the South OC tag thread and I don't think it got the proper respect it deserved. This is for jmoec1, if you're still out there....
