Next scavenge: Your bike next to a sign with an identifier of the state you live in ??
Just want to point out that those two have been done before, and I don’t know if duplicates matter or not.Your bike at a water feature (fountain, waterfall, etc).
I will still get it and post it. What's the next target?Swung by this place today with the wife - this was originally a gas station, then a motorcycle repair shop, then a bail bond store. It's full of wooden pallets now, so I'm taking that as a sign that it is either out of business (again) or someone is paying their bond in pallets.
Wind Horse - would still like to see the pick of the old bike shop.

I don't remember the covered bridge being a target. We have at least 10 of them here in northeast Ohio. We do a covered bridge run every year where we travel to the different bridges. I like the one you posted here and the history behind it!Also - I think earlier in the thread (sorry, being lazy) someone suggested a covered bridge but it was deemed a difficult target as there aren't many left. I thought I would upload this one for completeness. It is in New Euharlee, GA, USA. We stopped by a couple of weeks ago (and I've been lazy pulling it off my phone for upload) and got as close as we could. It is only open to foot traffic and is a Georgia Historical Society site. I've uploaded a lower-res image of the sign which reads:
Euharlee Creek Covered Bridge
In 1886 the county contracted with Washington W. King, son of freed slave and noted bridge builder Horace King, and Jonathan H. Burke for the construction of this 138-foot bridge. It was adjacent to a mill owned by Daniel Lowry, of which the foundation is still evident. This bridge replaced several previous structures, the last having been built two years prior. Constructed in the Town lattice design, the bridge's web of planks crosscrossing at 45- to 60-degree angles are fastened with wooden pegs, or trunnels, at each intersection.
