Pennsylvania 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

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 36 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.

If thats the one I'm thinking of, I can grab it on the way home from work today.



EDIT: Nope, I was wrong......I haven't given up, but I need to do some thinking. There are quite a few furnaces hanging out in the southern end of the county.

I will give another hint...it is north of US-30. You would be looking a long time if you kept to the southern part of the county.

Yeah.....I know exactly where it is. I needed to sit outback, drink a few beers, and think about it for a min. You damn near put it right under my nose. I knew it wasn't the Lock-12 furnace, or the Wrightsville furnace, but I couldn't remember if there was one down around Indian Steps/York Furnace area........thats where I headed yesterday. I even did a little gravel on the RT between Muddy Creek Forks and Woodbine. Anyway, the camera is stashed in the jacket pocket and I'm heading to the RIGHT location as soon as I get done with work today.

#3 - Tag must be a) findable and b) not placed on a dirt road. Maintained gravel is OK, but make sure to let folks know that gravel is required to get to your tag. We don't want to exclude those who don't like to get dirty.

Isn't there a bit more to this rule? Like, your bike must be in your picture -- if it isn't you weren't there.

How does this look?



I took the easy way in (pavement) and the hard way (unmaintained gravel/dirt) out. The trickiest part was not letting my bike fall over while I was taking the picture. That ground was as soft as a sponge and my kickstand went right into it. The bike is sitting flat on the ground in that pic with the center stand sunk a good 2-3" into the earth. I'm planning on heading out towards Philly on Saturday morning, so I will post up the next tag when I get back that afternoon.

We have a winner.

Codorus Furnace (Forge), located on Codrus Furnace Road, was operated by Hellam Iron Works. It originally produced normal pots and pans and the such, but was one of the ammunition manufacturers during the Revolutionary War.

Guess I should have mentioned this as well with the rules...it is not a hard and fast rule, but do your best to post the new tag within three days. This way the game will keep moving. I am not going to hold OoPEZoO to this, but from now on

Does that really need to be said?

If I may...

The rule about "no file photos" may want to be considered in a certain light: capturing the existing must be ridden, posting the new tag could be done with a file photo. This will allow your game to run much more quickly since it eliminates the wait period while the winner gets a new tag. Waiting could kill interest that otherwise would have remained fixed. Just a thought 'cause that's how we roll in Buckeye Country and it has worked to everyone's advantage.

Good start to the game, PA . Have fun.

If all goes well I maybe swinging through your way for a few days in October.

Give me a shout when you are out this way. I can show you around some of the less well known sights in the area.

which may be taken as...
Thanx for the sugestion,(sparkster) but we will cotinue doing the way we have been doing it.(no file photos allowed)


I didn't search real hard for a ruling an this post, but if there was a ruling it should be cut and dry. If not we will have to make a Copamundial Amendment to the file Photo rule rules.

let the Copa tag stand (since he said he will just place the same tag later), Make a specific ruling on file photo (I.e. must be taken takenno moe two day before used.) Which would be imposible to enforce. I think file foto should be out. the only way to know if you are the current tag holder is to get the existing post and repost. therfore how can you take a new Photo till you post the curent tag. A photo taken on the to or from the existing tag is not a file photo since you did ride to get it, and you are gambling that you may be bruced by takeing tyme to save tyme. therefore if you stop to kill to birds with one stone and get bruced you ultimatly faild.My theory is to get the tag and post as quick as possible. Now I know I'm "IT", I can then go place the new tag.


May be we can really complicate thing an make it a treasure hunt. We make up an official PA Tag-O-Rama object. we place the object at a location (same rules). first person to find the object is "IT" (that way we know who got there first and and they cant re-place it till the have it.) once you have the object you must place it by a certian time limt (24 HRS) or lose you turn. Get the object and Photo (of you geting the object) place the object and a get photo (of you placing the object) give clues. If some one loses a turn or object gets stolen we have to make a new object.


Man this is getting coplicated.... Just let it stand

I actually have an idea that I might be able to get a cool pic on my way home tonight. Well have to see how the weather holds out. I'm not much for searching for photo opportunities in the middle of a thunder storm.
