ADV tag drop

The advrider tag drop: Emmaus Moravian Church. Built in 1747, only a few blocks from home.

One big bee hive on the right side of the pediment...
One above the center window up in the steeple.

Fracis Walter dam - Tag grabbed!

...yet another in a long string of pointless pictures of my bike in places dictated by the advrider PA tag-o-rama game.

Did I say "pointless"?! I won this tag and so get to do the next drop.

Bruced again

I thought since rain was predicted I'd have a shot at this one. I also thought if I did get Bruced, it would be because of how long the ride home was for me. I was beaten fair-n-square on this one: a fellow rider had already posted the tag at 10:59AM... and another Bruced at 12:08PM. So, while I was jerking around trying to get the pic uploaded, the winner was already on his way to the next drop; and another rider was posting HIS Bruce shot.

advrider tag

After winning the tag from Martin Guitar in Nazareth, PA, I moved it to this favorite riding spot: the boat launch at Leaser Lake.

Recent missed tags

The Yuengling Brewery in Pottsville, PA - America's oldest continuously operating brewery. Supposedly the name translates to "young man." The lager is the only beer I drink on purpose.

Muhammad Ali's training camp in Deer Park, PA. Never knew this existed until the tag. Built by Ali in the 1970's to train away from the media in a private, isolated location. The compound comprises 18 log structures and was visited by lots of famous people when Ali was still boxing and living here.
