It was partly sunny and dry hereabouts, but I can't snatch the tag back already!

Post the New tag shots without the photoshop, and maybe someone will be interested!

If Fred doesn't get there first I will try to get it. I have a perfect move already picked out.

Hey Guys, there's nothing wrong w/making the game a little more challenging.

I typed in my Google search bar....

"Mill School Built in 1836. Used until 1921 as a one room elementary school"

This was 1st on the search results...........

http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...58187178,d.cWc


If you don't have a computer then youn have a ligitamate bitch, but since your on an internet forum I guess you have a computer w/a search bar.

If you want it just easy then let me know and I will get my wife to do it for you.

I would, but Tommy got his tag from me, and I don't think it's good form to go grab it right back.

So...go for it!

Sorry guys, wasn't my intention to make it too google intensive. That's why I left the name unmolested two times on the historical marker. Regardless, maybe this'll help.




Happy hunting.

I agree completely. I quit grabbing tags because I got sick of playing the Google game. And I've said it several times here before. I didn't find this particular tag to be all that difficult, but many have been.

I guess I just don't find a single ounce of fun in trying to figure out where something is with Google and clues. The fun for me is riding...

Thanks for the reference to rule #2. I reviewed it and believe the tag is in compliance, you know with the name on the brass plaque in more than one place. None the less, it most likely would've required some sort of research (googling, encyclopedia, Bing even) to determine the location. So I don't understand what part some seem to have found so troubling, in as much as some form of research is required for nearly all of the tags, forgoing local recognition. Perhaps it is the reading.....
Perhaps not. So as I previously posted, I have posted the coordinates along with a map and an address. Of course plotting the coordinates will take some time. Oh my, how will you ever find time to ride?

I would also cite a rule if it's not too presumptuous of a noob such as I. Please refer to rule #7.

Happy holidays 🎅

#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.
Okay, let's use some common sense. We can't read Rule 2 as though only the last five words count while ignoring the rest. The rule specifically anticipates that we provide hints and clues, not addresses or waypoints.

So, what if the hints and clues are difficult to figure out? Just reply! I've have yet to see an inmate (including me) fail to give more hints or even the precise location of the tag when asked. If the hints and clues posted by an inmate are insufficient to determine where the tag is, by all means, post a reply and say so. That's what I do.

Tommy's tag was accompanied by more than enough information on his first post and certainly with the subsequent joking about "Brown" not being a primary color. Besides, isn't that proof that the hints and clues were not difficult to figure out? Inmates figured it out based on Tommy's first tag post.
