East Tennessee Tag-O-Rama!
I have been a tag specator for too long now. East TN now has its own TAG-O-RAMA. I will also post (shamelessly plaigerize) the rules as Ridge Runner used in the NC tag, since they seem to work so well and are less subject to rules lawyering.

Alright here we go. Lets get this thing started and hopefully we start off alot smoother than some of the others. The game is simple, the rules are easy, the goal is to get people out riding. With the goal in mind, please dont make the clues so hard that we have to surf longer on the net than we have to ride to get the tag. So here are the rules :deal .

#2 THE PHOTOS OF THE TAG SHALL BE AS CLOSE AS THE PREVIOUS TAG PHOTOS AS POSSIBLE. That means that the tagger needs to make sure that his photo can be shot by anyone on any bike. The taggers bike needs to be in the photo. So I think that if a road is goverment maintained and legal to ride than it is fair game. Gravel or not. Also tell us where the tag was.
#3 NO WHINING ABOUT IT BEING TOO FAR. If you think it is too far go get it and bring it back to your part of the state. Trust me someone will.
#4 TAG MUST BE FINDABLE. If a tag is standing too long you will be asked to post a clue or a new tag. New tag must be posted no later than 24 hrs of the posting of your tag. You will forfeit your tag to the previous tagger. Lets keep the game moving.
#5 HE WHO POSTS FIRST WINS. It dont matter if you got to it first, He who post first wins the tag. Laptops with cell modems and smart phones really help here.
OK I believe that that is it. So lets have fun and ride safe. All rules are subject to change if the larger part of the inmates think that it should change. Lets go play TAG!!

The first Tag:

This FERRY was one of the last operating ferrys in the state of TN before being replaced by the bridge in the background.

GOD!!!! I just got off an awful midnight shift. I know exactly where that is and want to get it now....:lobby

TurnerR 03-22-2009 05:03 AM

Finally had some time to grab that tag. Great ride :evil

The next one is a little more east. A great road, actually my favorite road in Tennessee, that will connect two highways. Might as well do another bridge. Watch out for the spider "WEBBS".

This is tennessee, we have bodies of water going everywhichway, its hard not to do a bridge or river or lake or pond or something, there are so many to choose from.

For you lurkers out there:
Tag #1 was Blythe Ferry in Rhea Co.

Very true jonesy... I hope mine wasn't too hard... or maybe we just don't have to many east tn boys... won't approve me yet. I'm waiting to play over there as well.

jonesy54 03-23-2009 11:13 AM

yeah, I dont know...i think there are quite a few inmates from east TN on here. It may just take a while for the game to get going. if it fizzles out it fizzles out. but we tried.

I think i found your tag on google maps a few minutes ago. I'll try to get it later this week unless i get bruce'd. but that doesnt seem likely at this point.

SDS 03-23-2009 03:50 PM

I know 'zactly where that's at, but I can't get away right now to ride up there.....

Willbilly 03-23-2009 06:53 PM

I'm in! :clap

I researched that one and found it, unfortunately I can't get away from work this week to collect it.

Looking forward to baggin' some tags soon though.

PS What does "bruced" mean?

TurnerR 03-23-2009 07:18 PM

Yes sir thats exactly the spot. Hope somebody will grab it in a day or two. I have a few places I'd like to hit up :wings
