Maryland Tag-o-Rama

It started in Ohio
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=321439

Then it moved to Virginia
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=360246

I brought the game to Pennsylvania
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=372674

Now I bring Tag-o-Rama to Maryland. This game is intended to give folks an excuse to get out and ride (like ya need one) and learn more about the place you call home. Maryland Tag-o-Rama Map can found here.

Rules are easy...

#1 - Find the tag and reproduce the photo (as best as possible). The first person to post a found tag gets to place the next tag. If you get a tag, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose.

#2 - Take the tag to a new location, get the photo and post it here. Give a few hints so the next person can figure out where the tag is located. Try to place the tags in interesting locations, maybe a bit of history that can be found down some nice twisties. Explore all of Maryland, and post your results here! Repeats are discouraged, but not unacceptable.

#2.a - New tag is to be placed within 48 hours of the grab.

#3 - Tag must be placed on or near a legal road. Single track is out, but dirt and gravel roads are good. Keep it big bike friendly, and let people know if the they will be getting dirty to reach the tag.

#3.a - Tagging within Washington DC city is off limits for this game.

#4 - File photos are NOT permitted. You gotta ride to play this game.

#5 - No whining. If you have a valid sugestion to improve the game, we can listen to that. If you just wanna bitch and moan because you got Bruce'd, do it elsewhere.

Now that the rules are taken care of, here is the first tag.

The person born in this house was in the US Army, but decided the north was being a bit aggresive. He was injured and captured at Gettysburg. He was released in a prisoner exchange, but died shortly afterwards.

The house can be found near where a river named for a rider's least favorite forest animal meets a river from the Empire State.

I started the Maryland Tag-o-Rama because it is great for getting noobs to start posting, it encourages riding and learning about your state, and becuase I wanted more tags to steal.:evil I do not want to be the Maryland game boss, seeing that I am not from your state. I leave it up to Maryland inmates to decide on whether to change any or all of the rules for your state. Have fun.

Cool. I know exactly where that is.... ;)

This should be interesting. Is DC included in this game?

Skyclad 09-04-2008 09:49 AM

Personally, I would say yes to DC, but that is up to the Maryland folks in the end. I am just helping to get it off the ground in MD. I do not want to call the Maryland Tag-o-Rama as being "mine"

Lukejt 09-04-2008 11:40 AM

DC sucks. ;)

Don't care if it's included, I'd just rather not ever drive in that place unless I'm getting paid to do so, overtime. I'd like to live to see 40. :D

Yea, but given the hoods where we work, I could take some pictures of places that would be really challenging. Trying to get off the bike and grap a picture before somebody grabbed the bike would make it pretty interesting.

But now that I think about, that would mean that I would have to ride in.

Nevermind. :2guns :eek1

Lukejt 09-04-2008 03:33 PM

Made it!

Even if you avoid the slums, the traffic and time it takes to get anywhere in and or around DC is VERY frustrating.

That said, I've got no problems with DC being included here..........


I'll think up somewhere cool to take the next pic and get it posted asap. :clap

Lukejt 09-04-2008 04:43 PM

I took the pic about 2 hours ago on the Southern Susquehanna scenic route in front of that old dude's place (General James J. Archer) just south of his mill. ;) Here's a couple more pics.

I'm a kayaker, mountain biker and hiker so I knew the area. I took my wife and kids there a year or two ago and we road our bicycles on the trails around the area and took a tour of the mill, as soon as I saw the picture I knew the building. I found it w/o a map, directions or a GPS. :evil It really is beuatiful there, except the rush hour traffic in Bel Air on the way home.

I did not start it, so Idid not think about it. There is also the Empire State Tag-o-Rama.

Luke, good grab. One thing that is nice is for the tag grabber to post up a bit of info about the tag location so that others that may be interested may visit the site later. Not required, but a good thing to do.

The reason I asked was because the date stamp on your tag photo was from August 23, but the stamp on your new photos is today.
