You seem to know all the crack spots.

I don't see having more games as a problem, but simply giving the members here more chances to put his or her mark on the game. Maybe I missed the mark.... Like I said, I'll be riding whether I take pictures or not.
The game worked for years as is. People play when they can, the new Charleston will be no different.

Because I'm a maintenance Nazi, I do my valve adjustments every 6k miles, and the more I ride without good reason, the quicker I have to replace parts, tackle big tasks, and the more money I spend to see places that I likely couldn't give two shits about seeing. If this game is the motivation some people need to get out and ride, that's great. I don't need motivation, so I'll play when it's convenient.
Everybody has to do maintenance, you seem to REALLY enjoy it (that's not a poke, it's cool if you like to work on your bike)

You feel this way because you haven't spent enough time playing to know who plays. When you decide to take a break from tag will you be upset if someone tells you that you are not contributing? I think I can speak for many of us when I say this whole thing started with one man's bad mood. Had this game come about under different circumstances it may have been greeted with open arms. Tag will not always move at a pace that suits all of us. There are other games on ADV that may. Did any of you ever consider looking before you decided to blow up the community? When this game fails to meet the collectives standards of the group will another one be created? The conclusion can easily be drawn that you didn't, nor did you care if you offended inmates that have been playing the lowcountry game longer than presumably you have lived in Charleston or at least known about the game. Please do not presume that we must not care because you haven't seen us play much.



I sure as hell hope that this has reached the discussion stage, if anyone took offense to anything I said, I'm sorry--that you have thin skin.

The 'dirty minded' thing is probably reference to the road to get down there.
I'd intended to use that same place as my next tag, and was going to say that if you're not comfortable riding extremely rutted rocky roads, to approach from the east side. It's short, but not something everyone would want to do.

What would the different circumstances have been? Should I have asked the "communities" permission first? Come on man this is an Internet forum not the Lions Club. Here is it broken down. Low country tag game comes to a stand still when the game leaves Charleston. I wanted to create a game without so much downtime. This idea didn't come about from a bad mood. It came about as I was thinking how I enjoy the tag game and I'd enjoy it more if I could get more people to play. This game wasn't created to shut any other games down. As ter3e mentioned I created it to get more people playing. I'm really not sure how this created so much upset among the "community". It seems there is a lot of upset over very little. As I've said numerous times now if no one wants to play then the thread will die. Let's just all calm down. There is no reason get all worked up and challenge each others riding cred.

My take on the issue...I like having 2 games going, one local, one more expansive.

My choices on tacking a tag; am I working 7 days this week? what gear ratios am I running? how far the ride is?

Right now, working 6 days, still have dirt ratios installed, local tag is less than 5 miles away, coastal tag is much further away.

I may grab the local tag, have to bail on the coastal. Nice to have options!

Here's a new tag:
There's a railroad track right behind me here, and the next bridge has a real boat landing.
Also it's been established that my geography sucks, but I think this is still in charleston county. Over the next bridge(this is more like an overpass), I think Berkeley county starts.
Could I ask for another hint on this one. My Google map skilz have let me down. I was convinced I knew the spot until I took a ride out and realized I was wrong.

That is very close. When I took the picture, I was literally ten feet from a set of railroad tracks.

Shit man..twice I've screwed this one up. I'm going to defer to a better tag finder than myself. I wanted to get a shot under the bridge but there was some crackheads doing lord knows what in a mustang.

When I went to this spot, there was an RV parked about 30 yards away, but I figured they were probably just cooking up some meth, no biggie.

Yeah it was seedy. I didn't want to get to close as I was scootering and I was worried they'd mistake my practicality for weakness.

So just to be clear we aren't counting the photos as a grab right?
