Yes, I know we have a North American TOR and it is seeing some epic journeys, but I propose a USA only TOR with the goal of getting the mascot to all 48 lower states and maybe even AK provided it is a round trip, not a drop.
I plan to kick this TOR off tomorrow by dropping the macot off in an area of the Maryland Eastern Shore that has some very beautiful roads to ride. I will caution whom ever goes after it to check the tide charts first as a few places can see a couple of inched of water on the road at high tide.
The first mascot - He was lost or stolen. The new Mr. Nut rides on.
The rules ( basically lifted from Blinkerfluid's game)
Rules for this version:
NOTE - Your bike must be in the grab and drop shots - this means your bike and the area Nutsy is hidden MUST be in the photo. Your bike does not need to be in the detail photos of where Nutsy is hidden.
For example; when I dropped Nutsy off to start this game, I gave you a shot (with my bike in the picture) of the little pavilion he was in and than gave you some detail photos of his exact hiding spot.
REMEMBER - this is a motorcycling game, if you cannot get your bike close enough (legally) to have the hiding spot and the bike in the picture then pic a different spot.
#1 File photos are not allowed.
#2 Dirt is allowed; however, let everyone know that the route to the tag includes dirt roads. Also, use your judgement on placing the tag to ensure that someone else will most likely come and get it, i.e. don't turn this into the "lets see who can find the most obscure tag location in history" thread.
#3 Tag mascot is required to claim the tag. Tag claims must be posted within 12 hours of the 1st "bruced" photo. In the event no official tag claim is made within 12 hours, the person with the 1st "bruced" photo gets the tag and the honor of picking out and putting into play a new nut. If this person does not put a new nut into play with 1 week of their "bruced" shot then ANYONE can get a new nut and get the game moving again. No grab shot needed for this, you just need to be the first.
# 4 The please don't be an :asshat rule. If you grab Nutsy, take him on an adventure, drop him and then leave him. Document the adventure so the rest of us know what is going on with Nutsy. If you grab him and cannot make your dream drop then just drop him somewhere (the landscaping in your front yard would work) as other want to play.
--- 4A If you grab him and then we hear nothing from you for one week the same this applies as in rule 3; after one week, ANYONE can get a new nut and get the game moving again. No grab shot needed for this, you just need to be the first.
Rules may be modified or added later if it is determined that they are needed to promote movement of the tag.

Cool idea. :clap
Even with all the other TOR's going on, this is gonna be a good one. Glad to see you got it started :thumb
Mr. Nut's trip has begun. He stated off from Magnolia De along with his friend from the Mid Alantic TOR; also a nut job!
On the way to grabbing the DE TOR, they assisted in refueling.
Nut was happy to pose on the counter of Loaded Gun Customs (DE TOR grab).
He even suggested I buy this
After convincing him I was happy to stay with my Bandit, he jumped back in the tailbag and it was off to his first placement of the game. I took Mr. Nut to the end of the road on Elliott Island MD. Not much there, but from the jump off point at Vienna, you have 16 miles of beautiful, twisty pavement running through the Blackwater Preserve.
If you see these guys on the road, stop and lend a hand, rescused 5 today!
At the end of the road is a boat launch where you will see this
Mr. Nut is up in the rafters in the right hand corner as seen from where you pull up.
OK RIDERS - go get Mr. Nut and take him somewhere!:freaky
Well Mr Nut is on his way to a new home.
I actually spaced out and didnt get a full shot of my bike at the pavilion. I was still pumped from the twisty ride on the way in.
Mr Nut is not going alone either - Mid Atlantic Nut (Mr Nuts Brother) is heading with me. I am thinking I will keep them together at least for a little while longer. I dont want to split the family.
It was one hell of a ride out there - I thank you...
Not sure I can claim the tag for this one, since I didnt the full bike shot...but round trip to the nut was 260 miles...so he will just have to hang with his brother for now.
The guys fishing wondered awfully hard what I Was getting out of hte rafters.
And some creepy houses on the way out there...
The grabs are yours! Glad you enjoyed the ride. Don't feel bad about splitting the bros up. They have to split eventually as one has greater aspirations then the other.
Well I wanted to give an update since the drop time mark is approaching:
The nut brothers are still together and have been enjoying their time looking for sunny weather. It was take your mascot to work day so I brought them with me so they can help me look for sun shine on the horizon. Sadly, they haven't seen much of it. Kinda like a ground hog looking for shadow, these nuts wont give up and they are eager to get planted back into the wild ready to see new faces and meet new people. Until then...they sit and watch...
Weather finally cleared up and I got out of work a tad early...Off I went.
Both Nuts brothers were eager to travel:
And into another state the Nut Brothers went:
The TAG: Our Bikes have horsepower, but these really have horse power: Had a smudge on the lens...dang what a crappy tag.
But Mr. Nut could better than me:
Across the street from this tag photo is the entrance to the parking lot: Mr Nut was trying to find a place to hide...
Perhaps on the Tracks:
No thats to dangerous...so Mr Nut rolled into the corner of the flower bed just behind the train tie of the right corner :
Good bye to his brother: Mr Mid Atlantic Nut said fairwell and off he went:
Thanks again for the wonderful ride to Elliott's Island....
I just rolled into Somerset today on a COG spring fling ride.......looks like a fun ride for the morn!!!!!!
hmmmmmmm maybe not....360 mi roundtrip.......maybe on the way home....
Well played. :clap
OVO - COG#9090
Another one to watch. To far to get it today, work and all.... 6 hours each way for me.
Maybe this weekend...
Good game :clap
Edit, I was just through there 5-30-2010. Didn't know about the game.
Cool idea and right in my backyard! Busy weekend coming up. I hope somebody else gets it so I don't have to. :D
bump - someone from PA, NJ go grab this TAG and move along...Mr Nut should be collecting moss by now.
Someone go grab Mr. Nut!!!!
