I know this one is real old, but I just got my bike and joined this forum so I thought I might play catchup. They all look like places worth riding to. I'd seen this cool building from the interstate a number of times but never really had an excuse to take a closer look.

Helloooo OC, anybody else out there?
Is the Children's Science center the next tag? Or are we still looking for the Richard Nixon Library?

So this thread has gone stagnant... I've decided to play, but since there was doubt as to which location was the tag, I got both.

It's been a long time....
So I stopped playing before the secession of South Orange County. I'm not sure of the rules for this tread. Is it still open to the entire OC or just the north /south? I've tagged the spot and have posted a new spot in North Orange County. If I need to change the new tag to a South Orange County spot, let me know!
This spot is on 17th Street and Bristol in Santa Anna

Re: OC Scooter Tag
To address jmoec1's question, it looks to me like your tag is fine

Now, if I could just remember where that is *scratches noggin* I have some time to ride on Friday. Maybe I can get up to OC to look around.

By the way, thanks for bringing this back from the dead!

Scootin'
Yeah, I think I remember the rules. I find it funny that the simple idea of finding one spot and then posting a new one had gone so far astray. I think I remember why I bought my scooter! Oh yeah, it was so that I could get out there and just scoot....

Found it. Sorry the pic is bad. I had to crop the photo so it would fit.

Will get a new one in a bit.

Your right, I did not even notice that the fence was blue. I know where the other one is, and I will tag it in the morning. For now can we continue the game with Midnight's tag?

Here is the correct Vodie's
I was messing with the photo, I thought it looked better like this. I'll pass the tag to Midnight. So let's look for that wave.....

Sure thing:

it's visible from the 55fwy, near an overpass, going southbound between the 405 and the 5 fwys, though lately it's been parked farther away, but you can still see it through the trees.

I am so glad to see the game resurrected a bit. It's been a while since I even checked because I thought it might have died.

So to keep it moving....

Western Exterminators on Ritchey Ave. in Santa Ana. This was tough since Western's website does not list this location. The only way I found it was to search on "Fence Menders" I could see in the background of the tag picture. Pictures always reveal a little something extra....

I did not have time (really enough daylight) to get the next tag, so you will have to stay tuned. I will post it tomorrow before the weekend.

I certainly don't want to scare everyone off....

Lets see, this centrally located place is very artistic as well as historic. Also you can get good southern food and a high-proof cocktail here as well.

Here's a shot from a different angle....

Ummmm this is OC tag...Santa Monica, are you kidding me?

I really don't want to stall this game again, I just can't tell if people are stumped, or just not playing. For those looking, take a close look at my clue...if you need more, Let me know...

I don't reconize it either, Perhaps if I drank booz I would know where it is. I don't have any idea where in the OC it could be, Santa Monica was just a wild guess. What SM isn't part of the OC?

Hmmmm, the last good southern food I ate in California was in San Francisco, and that definitely ain't in Orange County. Another clue please? Just a small one - for those of us who haven't lived here that long (and don't get out much)...

I could use another clue, too, please.
I rode around OC yesterday. I thought this location was in or near the circle at Chapman and Glassell in Orange. "Plaza Square" is the heart of the City's Old Towne Historic District. It's historic (even in the name) and artistic (film / media schools nearby and tons of antique stores). There are lots of two-story buildings, some with ornate ironwork, lots of outdoor cafes, etc.
I was wrong, though. Rode around for about an hour without success. Had to console myself by going to Westminster for Korean spring rolls, Costa Mesa for my favorite quit shop and Corona del Mar for my favorite nursery. Great day but no tagging.
Another clue would help. Thanks, ScooterFish!

Where is the next spot?
