Memphis Area Photo Tag
 
Memphis Area Photo Tag

https://umdrive.memphis.edu/jzelazny/public/MAPT.jpg

Object: Find the most recent photo tag location, take a picture of your bike at the same location, then post a picture of your bike at a new photo tag location for others to find.

Guidelines: (Note, there aren't any rules.)

Your bike should be in the photo when at all possible (bonus point if your ADV sticker is visible).

To keep the game moving, you should post your new photo as soon as possible after finding the old photo, ideally this means at the same time.

It's not a game of Stump the Chumps. Locations should be moderately easy to identify by a local with a reasonable knowledge of the area or a bit of research (We'd rather be riding than Googling). Your photo is encouraged to have a hint attached or contained within the picture itself. Your hint can be anything from an obscure Beatles reference to the exact coordinates of the spot and anything in between. Just depends on how hard you want us to work.

Hints should be given when requested (in this thread).

If after a period of time (a few days?) nobody has found your tag, community pressure may require you to reveal the photo tag location or relinquish your holder-of-the-tag status.

Creativity is encouraged. This one is up to you.

To start, photo tags should be roughly within a 50 mile radius of Memphis. This should be easy to figure out if you have a GPS. Here is the approximate area shown below:

Guidelines and game playing area are open for modification depending on how the game runs. Suggestions are welcome.

I thought you drove some sorta pimp-mobile?:lol3

Jamie Z 11-05-2010 08:02 AM

Hm. This isn't working out like I thought. Seems like everyone else everywhere else likes to play Photo Tag.

Should I start with a different photo? I think the game just needs to get off the ground.

I was going to tag it, but I forgot to bring my GPS to work with me today, Jamie.
:2cry

Can't remember how to get to Scqtt's house without it.

I will play, but it will be a few more days before I can join up.

Dang, I wish I had seen this earlier. I was not 2 miles from there earlier this morning.

Do you get points for having your truck in the pic at that location?

Okay, we had a tough one and an easy one. After Jamie's abstract randomness of his photage, we decided to put up the easy one. Sorry for the fuzzy phone image in low light. We were going to bring it inside the loop, but it was getting dark :dog and cold :vardy, so you get...

This wasn't quite as easy as I thought. I haven't been here for at least five or six years, though I was pretty sure where it was. When I got there, I couldn't initially find it, and I thought maybe I was in the wrong spot. Alas, I got it.
