Awesome find Stu! We were hoping the bridge would be clue enough.
Way back in Tag 36, almost three years ago, I picked up my first tag in this game, the anchor in Allegheny Center. But it’s time to drop anchor again! When you find it, you might say “That’s It! ____ _____!”, and in so doing, earn some high marks.
Branchport Boat Club, North Shore Trail, with a friend from work.
The park is quite small
just a bench and a space
barely enough room
to wait for your place.
Near a pair of circles,
but one is a square.
Both are confusing;
one will leave you impaired.
OK here’s another hint…
Look at the box, towards the west.
The tag is next to the very best
neighborhood Italian place
very close to my home base.
Ah yes, I went right past there a few weeks ago. It’s going to be the weekend before I can have a shot at getting out thataway.
Another softball, maybe a 3-tag day?
Set with campB

Yeah, I rode past that anchor this morning.
That sea of orange cones really struck me. They were having a BMW driving demonstration. I’ll bet I could outdo any of the cars in terms of precise handling.
I couldn’t Google to translate it, but I’m pretty sure that Russian word means “awesome”.

Transliteration would be “Stahanovtsy”. This is based on last name “Stahanov” who was in charge of coal-miner brigade that produced enormous amount of coal per each day (as usual rigged) and it became an word of its own meaning that you have to work really-really hard to earn this nick-name.
I didn’t add the two new categories. I didn’t even notice them till you pointed it out, though they appeared back on September 23 (courtesy of “anonymous”, says Google).
I coded the “most tags” and “found by groups” logic (and did most of the data entry). Other folks have added the chart and the list of categories (original and improved).
For a second I thought that upper pic was snow, and I wondered, where the eff did Stu find snow?!
Craig and Bigelow.
Set with the weekend hills group including Buffalo Buffalo.

Hmm, who could that be? It would have to be someone who was familiar with Russian idioms… can’t think of anyone…
^Thanks Mikhail, Steven & anonymous. I’m feelin’ a little more worldly now.
Boy, that’s a lot of curiosity. Fortunately, no dead cats as yet.
Way back, in the mists of time, I added the histogram chart to the Tag-o-Rama spreadsheet, mostly because I was curious about the player distribution. It became apparent that people stratified in terms of their focus on the game. So I added the range labels; they were not meant to be too serious, after all it was a light-hearted, fun game with a top score of ~16, I think.
I visited the spreadsheet more recently and (among other things) realized that the scores had really shot up. Calling the top tier Stakhanovites seemed about right: Heroes we seek to emulate.
