I would have to say that it can be either rider. Just make sure that you have it figured out who is going to be dropping the tag to prevent you both posting a new one. Also, include the names of both riders in the grab post, though I do have a thought of who the other is.

I also do some caching and have found some cache locations that would make excellent tags.

It's a long way to Tipperary - the tag was closer

What direction did you come from madmax? I was there at 11:30 and rode home afterwards - fifty miles of mostly cross-country secondary roads. I normally drop the next tag on my way home but I'm sure as heck glad I didn't do that today. I'm tied up with family stuff the rest of the day but I'll try to get another tag up tomorrow.

PS: I've taken one picture twice already for the Pittsburgh tag-o-rama but haven't posted it yet...been bruced.

Crap!

Well I took a 4 hour tour of the area waiting for the new tag. I just stopped at Sheetz only to find it won't be up until tomorow! Oh well, nice riding! I got to check out the Conemaugh Dam tag. What was the big happenings in Saltsburg?

I came in from Ebensburg way. I actually drove past the tag on 422, then backtracked on 553. I didn't get to the tag until 12:30, then rode over to Carrolltown to post it. I refreshed this page and there was no grab posted. I went inside to buy a drink and snack and when I came back out side you had posted the grab! I'm not sure, but I think Singlerider and friend got bruced also.

Nope, we weren't bruced. We were busy with our own local tag game.

Were you heading east on 422 about 4:00? I was heading west down a hill and flashed the lights in my truck to warn a guy ripping up through a passing zone a little east of Yellow Creek. A trooper was hiding near the top of the hill.
The bike looked something like yours.

I posted up my time frame as soon as I realised you were waiting for the next drop - I assumed (incorrectly?) that you were accessing the board via your cell phone and wouldn't have to wait very long to get updates.

"....big happenings in Saltsburg?" you got me - I don't get the reference

Overshooting the tag and coming up 403 to 553? ...that's how close I was to being bruced...it doesn't get much closer than that...whew!

There was a gun bash at the Saltsburg VFD today.

Yep, that was me, THANKS!!
The person I was passing was driving about 50-55 when I started to pass. When I started to pass they sped up to 70 or more and that's when I saw you flash your lights. As soon as you went by I saw the trooper sitting there and thought for sure I was in for a performance award, but he just watched me go by. A few miles up the road there was a local cop watching a 35 mph zone.

Peach, no worries about the new tag. I had a good time exploring the area. I forgot my GPS so I was just wandering around checking things out. So many interesting places, so little time!

Singlerider, I didn't know there was a local tag game?? Is it on here? I drove past 2 bikes along 422 on my way to the tag fueling up and one of them looked a lot like yours. I figured I was bruced, I just had the wrong brucers!

Bruced..............................Big Time

I knew i didn't have a chance, it was a 240 mile ride by the time I got there at about 2:15. Beautiful day for my first 400+ miler of the year.


Nice area to ride.

The Pennsylvania Tag-o-Rama map has been updated for the first 100 tags.

Grape, good to see ya. I am surprised that you have not been jumping on some of these tags. Not terribly far from you.

Question A Question

What do you use to post while you're on the road? I've been thinking about buying one of those mini notebooks because it would fit in my saddlebags..
