I guess I must be missing something. I see this argument against file tags all the time and always end up scratching my head. When file tags are used, they are only used to place a tag, not to get a tag. So when a tag moves, someone rode right then to get the tag. The tag doesn't move without someone riding to get it.

Also, at some point they had also ridden to get the file photo used to place the tag.......

Going to reiterate a lot of what BlueM00se said above, but file tags are only used to place a new tag once someone has ridden to get the existing tag.

Example: You post a tag of something. I ride to get that tag, but instead of spending hours/days getting a new one, I've got some great shots in my "unused tags" folder on Photobucket. I can post a great, new tag instantly that may or may not be near the one I just rode to get. The rest of the players in the game instantly have another one to go get. And once that one has been grabbed, I have another shot at a new one. Pretty funny as well as pretty hectic when it's a nice day and there are folks riding all over the boundaries of the Triangle Tag game bouncing the thing all over during a single day. As opposed to the VA game where it might move a dozen times/year...

Except in the instance of last New Year's Eve when a handful of folks were tagging stuff in their garage in one of the wildcard games...

Fortunately in our region, if you play the NC-NC Tar game you can take your pick as we have one of each going.

I play a dozen or so off and on. Some have mascots, some don't. Some allow file tags, some don't. There's plenty for everyone, I just like some better than others.

Thumb Almost a 1 year old filthy rat

I imagine today the rat was actually frozen solid. Now, time to plan my first rat grab/tag on video

Smote/Schmote. Grab it on a Saturday. No church folk around then. Looked to me that even on Sunday, not a lot of folk will be there. And that is a shame, INMHO. We can all use a little churching, and you can sure meet a bunch of nice people at any church, but small rural ones are special.

Oh dear

Don't tell me the rat has fallen and she can't get up. Do we need to Call Now for the special limited time offer?

Grab!

New tag can be found at the coordinates: 37.26322N, 80.467317W

The RAT is in a hole at the base of the tree

It's hard to see but the tree the RAT is in is snapped in half

The entrance to this road is steep, rutted, and slightly gnarly. After that the road is loose gravel with the occasional rut thrown in.

If the general consensus is that this is too hard then I'll go move it!

You reckon I can get down there on the Concours????

(Don't move it on my account. I only look at this seriously when it's near Danville or the weather is good for a 6+ hour ride...)

With the snow we just got I'd imagine it's pretty hairy up there now... I know what I'm doing later!!

Thumb 1 year on the Road!

That was the first place I would have taken it next. Good tag location and great mountain biking up there.
