The sign is there to advise the 18 million water trucks that are running all over SWPA not to vac water out of the stream. There is a lot of fracking going on around here. Look at a recent satellite image of the area. You'll see lots of well pads and lots of frac impoundments.

I think the tag needed a bit more info to be fair. Hint: Look at the web address for the photos. But you better hurry. More white stuff's a-comin'!

Greg grabbing a tag is like getting a pic of bigfoot on your game camera.

I've said it here before, but this is why I don't play this game any longer. IMO, it's silly to give convoluted clues that turn it into a Google game instead of a riding game. Too many tags were inaccessible to me not because of the distance or terrain, but because I couldn't wade through the clues given and/or wasn't good enough at Googling. What's the point in that?

If tag info appears insufficient, just ask for more info! That's what I do when stumped, but I don't mind a challenge.

Hope you change your mind.

That sounds like a sticky situation. I have found that some people are afraid to give obvious clues because it enables somebody from out of the immediate area to come grab it and take it away.
