Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia Tag-O-Rama

Not sure West Virginia is ready for another Tag-O-Rama

Here are some rules (stolen from other Tags - NW VA tag and Valley Dual Sport tag) for the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia Tag-O-rama.

1. Tag boundary: the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia Tag-O-Rama is all of Berkeley, Jefferson, Morgan. Mineral and Hampshire counties.

Tag map (by Elroyjetsn) : TAG MAP

2. Tag placement:
a. The tag can be on any type of road and road surface (i.e.: Highways, Byways, Forest service road) No interstates or "fee/pay" areas.
b. Tag should not be more than 50 feet off the road and must be on public property, (don’t need to have any one going to hospital to remove rock-salt from their arse).
c. Should be placed on a prominent geologic feature or road intersection (historical markers, old building, bridges, waterfalls, etc).
d. If the tag is placed on a rough gravel or dirt road, mention it so someone on a street bike will have a heads up.
e. Tags can be placed close to other tags, but not for the very next tag. The tag should move at least 15 miles or more, remember it is about the ride!
f. Can re-tag same area after 6 months give a day or twoJ.
g. If you grab a tag you must place a new tag that day (and post it too) unless something happens that prevents you from placing it (mechanical problems, family emergency, too much chili for lunch, well maybe the last one not a good example).
h. Tags on or very close to Churches may not be grabbed on Sunday mornings before 12:30 pm (or during services i.e. parking lot full). It is disrespectful to the congregation for bikers to show up Sunday Morning, unless you go early and stay for church.

3. Tag Photos
a. No file photos! You have to ride to play!
b. Don't expect riders to recognize a single Oak tree because some woodpecker made a hole in it. Go for places that people will recognize.
c. Make your photographs count. If you pick a very recognizable landmark, it still won't help if you take it at 3:00 in the morning with no flash. Its okay to post 2 or 3 photographs if you think it is necessary for riders to recognize the location.
d. Your bike and Mascot (Lucky Duck) must be in at least one of the photographs.
e. Indicate the location of the Mascot in at least one photograph (or a good description).



4. Game play
a. If you are new to tagging, check out other tags http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=405166 or http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=568965
b. If someone PM's (private message) you for more clues and you decide to give them more they should also be posted in the thread to keep the game fair.
c. Chatting about the game and other semi related topics is encouraged, it adds to the fun of the game.
d. Reasonable Effort: there are occasions when tag mascot is gone. If you go to the location, search for an honest 20 minutes for the mascot, and can't find it, we'll give you the point. It's not worth spending hours searching for the mascot which may have already been grabbed or stolen by a local/wild animal and in West Virginny may be one in the same. Do make every effort to find it, and if you have the correct tag shot, and it is confirmed that you did not get “BRUCED”, you will get credit (assuming, of course, you also post a new tag).

The 1st Tag - It was here during the Revolution that James Morgan, the grandson of Col. Morgan Morgan was shot and killed by a group of Tories. Since then, this area has been known as Torytown.



Mascot - "Lucky Duck"


hiding place is at base of tree. near the little white building but on this side of the fence.





Hiding place with a prize...!!!!!



hiden by some leaves.



Have a safe Memorial Day... and remember the Veterans who paid the ultimate price for our Freedom.

Talking The Grab: Morgan Cabin

The Grab:

Morgan Cabin on Runnymede Rd. Berkeley County.

Home of Morgan Morgan, not far from Morgan County and it's only right that a Morgan should pay it a visit. My mom is a Morgan and it's my middle name.I'm glad that she decided to give me a different first name.





Lucky Duck moves on... Strappin good treat, thanks Reb!

Time to fire up the TOR!

TAG:



Not all fire stations in the panhandle have the latest equipment. Not far from a circle and a dramatic place. Near where 2 towns are joined at the hip, but only one was named after a president's brother. The other could be part of a mispelled hostage cituation.



Lucky Duck resides at the left base of this marquee.
