[see end of previous page for tag claim and new tag drop]

Naw, I saw nothing! I was freezing and thus rushing to get my gloves back on and go home, plus anxiously awaiting a vet call at home.

Sadly, I knew it was on Barflett (sic) way back. Altho I imagined it nearer the playground, so Red’s Rupert hint also helped narrow it down.

Extra sad because Barflett & Murduck is only 1000 feet from my apt, and I walk thru that intersection twice a week! I blame this laziness on my newfound Zwifting habit.

Shiver me Timbers, it’s a Spanish Queen

A+ to Kindred Cycles for getting out a stripped bolt today while I waited.

Also answers the question, What foreign monarch was featured on a U.S. coin? And the third digit of the date will give you the intersection. (Well, pretty close, anyway.)

Stu- easy pickup for you from your work.

I know! I have the day off and can’t get into my building if I wanted to because of construction. But if it stays clear I might take a ride into town anyway. I already have a tag picked out for next time.

My own bike has traveled maybe a half mile in February, though I’ve been on the HealthyRides a good bit. Perrymont has a persistent nasty ice patch, the trolley trail isn’t useable until April, and I don’t want to deal with either Perry or McKnight, so I just don’t leave the house on two wheels much.

About that clue: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isabella_quarter

New tag: Tiny sign in foreground with an enormous hint in the background. Two, in fact.

Meanwhile, let’s try again on an image of an 1893 Isabella quarter.

Did you see the plaque on the building that says “US Maglev Corporation”? Wonderthe story behind that.

One could make the argument that the current tag should be ahlir’s to pick up.

I saw there was a plaque there but was on my way to a meeting so didn’t take time to look at it.

That building on Isabella was also tag 122, eight years ago. That first tag was set on February 15th (2011), this one on February 16th.

I could go past that on my way to Kraynick’s tomorrow.

Well, I shot this yesterday (Sunday) around 11:00am. I didn’t have time to upload then and decided to wait until I got home. Then I had 6.5 hours without power.

The house is located at the Highland Park end of Negley.

It’s good to be the (King Estate).

The King Estate (also known as Baywood, or the Alexander King Estate) located at 5501 Elgin Street in the Highland Park neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, was built in 1880. Alexander King was the original owner of this Second Empire style house. It was added to the List of City of Pittsburgh historic designations on November 12, 1992,[1] and the List of Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation Historic Landmarks in 2000.[2]

New Tag – and yeah, I know it’s been tagged before, but the old image is long gone. Plus, this piece of art deserves an updated tag.

Hint?

BTW the King Estate was tagged before, by stefb (https://www.bikepgh.org/message-board/reply/re-tag-o-rama-2-2659/) and I picked it up. The tag was of the remains of the “folly”, a fake castle wall, built by the owner. I found this photo of the original construction:

If I was from out-of-town, looking to stay nearby, I’d say Ace is the place.

hint: it’s a church


Eric
Member
#

it’s a pretty well known landmark but I rarely ride in that area, though.

Do you think no one has picked it up because of weather/cold, or because people need a better hint, or because of lack of interest in the game?


StuInMcCandless

Weather/cold. I can’t get out of my neighborhood on a bike, and have been working from home a lot.

It has been 49 hours since the last tah. If there’s no new tag by my ride tomorrow morning I’ll set a new tag.

Glad you got the tag. I started wondering if something bad happened.


Steven

#

I no longer read this board regularly. If the players still want the game’s map and spreadsheet updated, perhaps someone else could take over?


Ornoth
Member

I could maintain the spreadsheet, with two big caveats. First, it’s only worth my time if people are actually using the spreadsheet and see value in keeping it updated (if so, speak now!). And second, I can only maintain it on an interim basis, as we’re planning on moving out of town, and I’d have to turn it over to someone else by then.

As for the map, I’d prefer to leave that to someone else.


paulheckbert

#

I use the map more often than I use the spreadsheet. The map is useful for determining if a tag I’m considering has been used before.


Eric
Member
#

The other factor to consider is that there are maybe 1.5 active players.


Dave

But that number does not take into account us lurkers who enjoy the thread from the sidelines.  “I like to watch.”

20th century biblical, found near 19th (St.). Congregation Talmud Torah (now Red House Communications), 1908 Sarah St.
