    Her Strava track would've given some quality clues, as well, although it wasn't necessary to solve the puzzle.

    PS: This thread just passed 4,000 posts: I wonder how many calories it has burned?

    If you come here for the tag on Saturday, there will be about 800 people doing yoga everywhere. If you see me, come say hi!

    Last tag was Rosa Parks Elementary in City Heights.

    I am not providing any hints beyond what's already in Ted's description but Google this:

    "yoga san diego saturday june 17"

    I don't even know if this is it, but that's what I would try first - obviously, one needs to ride out there to know for sure.

    This takes 0.2 seconds, so you don't have to spend all day behind a computer screen.

    Tag (I believe), different tree, same park (park/lawn at the South / West corner of the intersection Presidents Way & Park Blvd, with Coronado bridge views in the background on the left and downtown on the right):



    My phone is taking really shitty night pictures, so here another shot - same intersection, but the North / East corner to show at least the street signs for "proof" that I have been there:




    I'll let t.e.d confirm if the tag is valid before posting a new tag.

    Next one up:



    Last one was at the Trader Joe's shopping center in HIllcrest. The shot was taken on what's commonly known as "PFA's Rat Run", so I figured I had a chance to capture this one today as he is out of town.

    Now that I have had a chance to look at the tag I claimed on a larger screen, I am thinking maybe that I caught the wrong entrance to the parking structure - I will leave it to Ted to decide if it qualifies as a catch or not.

    I've been trying to be mindful of placing tags at savvy locations for getting around town. Since the parking garage/bike freeway is a GREAT asset for getting from Hillcrest to Uni Heights, I'm all for putting up as many different pictures as possible. So, yes. Your catch is awesome, as is the new tag, which I just rode by this morning. :/

    This Gloria Muriel mural used to be on the very same wall, but was replaced by the current one sometime over the last year or so, purportedly when a new business tenant moved in.

    I am glad I caught it before it was gone; it was spectacular:

    I would like to know the story behind how Muriel ended up being commissioned to paint two murals on this wall; one on top of the other.

    It looks to me like a collaboration, and a great one at that!

    Yes, the yellow (current one) is a collab - you can clearly see different styles on the two sides of the work.

    The building postal number was the clue I needed.

    Next one should be up before mid-day (not quite up to

    Hey all, Photobucket wants me to pay $400 to keep using their hosting service because of "excessing 3rd party hosting" which is apparently around 20 pictures.

    Does anyone have recommendations for a cheaper way to do this? This is the only thing I use Photobucket for. I am going to ry deleting old posts on this thread and see if that helps, but if you could let me know what YOU use to play this game, that would be great.

    Thanks!

    Apparently, Photobucket is restricting the use of photos hosted on their servers on 3rd party web sites, such as this one. How they are going about deploying this strategy is unclear, as many people here are using PB (including myself, since the beginning of this game): So far, only Ted has had his photos locked down (see his photo submissions above).

    However, I think it would be prudent by all present Photobucket users to look into other hosting options, as it is possible that PB will lock down all of us. I did some research yesterday, and decided to set up an Imgur account, With it, I was able to host photos and have them displayed onto here. Imgur also has an iPhone app, which is useful if you iike to post while on the road. It seems user friendly enough, once you get used to how it works. I will be using Imgur for all my Bikeorama shots from now on, regardless of whether PB reverses its policy.

    Those of you who are using other photo hosting options than Photobucket please chime in with your experiences (Smorg, Shady, SUL, Bobby, to mention some).

    As always, it is critical that you parse the code that you paste into the forum post: All image links need to start with "http" and end with "jpg" - nothing else will display properly. Invariably, for me at least, I need to edit the link given to me by the photo host and remove various HTML formatting in order to reach the desired http and jpg front and back.
