Laugh Vermont Tag O Rama

Vermont Tag-O-Rama

Okay let's kick his thang off....mmkay

Rules are easy...
  1. Find the tag and reproduce the photo (as best as possible). 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.Make the clues clear and easiiy understood.
    • Try to place the tags in interesting locations, maybe a bit of history that can be found down some nice twisties.
  2. Tag must be: a) findable & 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.
  3. 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.
  4. One tag at a time. File photos are NOT permitted. You gotta ride to play this game.
Remember, you gotta be quick. Don't make the clues difficult, because it will come back and bite you in the arse. Also, bring your "A" game cause someone will have a tag and post another while you're thinking about eating breakfast.

Finally,

If you wanna play, you gotta ride.

The address is always Evergreen Terrace, though the street number has been different a few times. 742 Evergreen Terrace has been used most often and most recently.

Yes, ridden, bicycled, walked, skied the road many times. My mom's family is from Landgrove, where one end of the road is. The road is indeed seasonal. It becomes a snow-mobile trail in the winter. I was up there two weeks ago and the regular plowed roads were still pretty muddy. The Mt. Tabor connector will be very muddy, since it isn't plowed in the winter and it's mostly covered with tree shade. Also, that part of the state is in the Green Mountains, so the snow comes earlier and leaves later. And, as I'm sure you've noticed, New England has gotten a lot of rain in the last few days.

You could probably get through on a trail bike with off-road knobbies now if you're a good mud rider. I wouldn't do it on a dual-sport with street-legal tires for another month or so.

However, if you want a little dirt diversion, you could still ride to Landgrove and take the Hapgood Pond road to Peru. It will be the left that goes over the little bridge near the church and the old school house (the first left before Little Michigan road, which would be the road you would take to get to the Danby road). It's open year-round.

It is currently closed to motor vehicles. I tried to ride it on Sat. Gated at both ends. Looking at the 2009 VT forest service map it is designated for seasonal motor vehicle use. Not sure when they will be opening the gate.

I would guess mid may.

I will check again this weekend

Most of the over mountain stuff in the area is still snow covered, Kelly stand road from Stratton to Arlington had a lot of snow on it, I made it through on the KLR with DS tires but it was a long ride.

Yeah, I forgot to mention that even though you might be able to get through on a trail bike now, the locals wouldn't like it if you tried. The road is usually closed between snow-mobile season and car/bike season (i.e., mud season, i.e., now) because they don't want the road to get too badly rutted up. The road is not regularly graded like the other town roads (100 percent of the roads in Landgrove are dirt).

Are these tags getting harder?

Seem to be getting obscure.


Rules are easy...
  1. 2. Tag must be: a) findable

I was trying to be cryptic enough with the hint that it would require a bit of thought before going to Google; if folks feel that it's a bit too cryptic, I can clarify a bit (in hindsight "Om" may have been more oblique than intended, as it references several religions, not just the one relevant to the tag), but I also didn't want to be too obvious.

(I thought the previous tag was pretty simple, although having a copy of the Long Trail guidebook handy was rather helpful.)
