It started in Ohio
Then it moved to Virginia
Now we have Tag-o-rama in Pennsylvania. This game is intended to give folks an excuse to get out and ride (like ya need one) and learn more about this place we call home. (Pennsylvania Tag-o-Rama Google Map
Rules are easy...
#1 - Find the tag and get a picture of your bike in the same location (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. Remember, the point of the game is not to make the clues difficult to figure out. It is about riding, not Googling.
#2a - New tag must be placed within 72 hours. If new tag is not set within the time limit, the first Bruce posted gets the tag. If no Bruce was claimed, tag will back in play as if not grabbed, and somebody else will get their chance. If you won't have the time to drop it off, don't pick it up to begin with.
#2a.1 - This rule is intended to keep the game moving. If the overdue tag is posted before somebody grabs the reverted tag, then the new tag will stand. However, giving the overdue tagholder a load of crap is still highly encouraged.
#3 - Tag must be placed on or near a legal road. Single/double 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.
#4 - File photos are NOT permitted. You gotta ride to play this game.
#5 - The motorcycle in the picture must get to the tag location under its own power (The vfr870 rule).
#6 - Repeat tags are not prohibited, but they are discouraged. PA is a big state, and even with 450+ tags already placed and grabbed, there are a lot of things/places out there that are not on the map yet.
#7 - 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.
This furnace can be found in eastern York county. It shares its name with both the road it is on, and the creek on the other side of the road. You don't have to ride any gravel to get here, but that option does exist.
Go get it.
