Soooo, here is a rules question. Does the person snaging the tag also have to post it? Let's say, hypothetically, my SO runs up to the state line, snaps the pic with his cell phone and forwards it to me, I post it....could he get credit for snagging it?

....and without further ado (now that I'm warmed up some that is) I present the next tag. I double dog dare you. That's not a clue. There is no clue. It's written on the sign. I just dare you to ride it. I didn't, not on that thing any way, but that doesn't stop me from daring you. Which I do. Double dog.
In case you can't make it out it's a Trail, in Rockingham County, that you can Recreate on.

How about starting a poll? Maybe a whole bunch of folks who don't play in the game here can come vote in it? Sorta like what happened in the Maine poll a few weeks ago.


That begs the question: when does one become a player? Once they snag a tag, or when they start following along hoping to snag one...maybe actually riding to it but coming up just short a time or two?

I can imagine someone who wants to, but hasn't gotten a tag might get just as antsy waiting for the new tag post as someone who has already got a tag or to under their belt.

And, no. I didn't vote in the Maine poll.

Who voted in the Maine poll is open knowledge. It was a public poll.

But hey, I've taken enough grief from folks about my playing in three states at the same time that maybe I'm just weary of the cheap shots from the folks sitting on the sidelines.

whew! Memory sucks sometimes.

As for those beating you up for playing 3 states at once goes, they'll either have to get over it or die that way.

Personally, it seems like the thing to do if you can pull it off.

Wish I could...

Yup, +1 on that, if I could run several, Ok, three States I would do it in a second, well, within the speed limitis of course...

I actually meant that I misread the poll and thought it meant time to find the tag and not time to place a new tag after finding. . .

(But I digress on this NH Thread...)

I voted in the Maine thread because I aspire to capture a tag in Maine.

Oh, I will beat you to the Maine tags (I will wait until you are out of your driveway first though).

That's probably not a bad thing.

BTW, I hope this doesn't mean you're done playing. The first half of your sentence sounds a bit 'final'.

Well, we have little toy states in New England, anyway!

Is there a VT tag-o-rama going? If so there might be the possibility of a 3-fer!

I've been having a blast playing too. Remember...the rules state right in the beginning that you have to bring your "A" game since others will be getting the tag while your're thinking about breakfast...or something to that effect.

Don't let the naysayers bother you. This game is best when lots of people are playing and trying to get the tag to the best of their ability.

It's too dam cold this morning...otherwise I'd have that tag back up north out of the claws of you southerners...just waiting for the opp

The big guy is in the garage, rewiring my bike...then I'll be back in the game - less the frost bite thing...then we're heading to Max's for free turkey dinner.

You wouldn't need no lectrics if you would put some more meat on them bones of yours.

Thats just me being jealous cause I haven't gotten any yet. I am good down to about 30 in regular gear for a few hours. But then I have lots of natural insulation
