South Alabama Tag-O-Rama (including NW Florida)

Welcome to South-Alabama Tag-O-Rama Game!
Including NW Florida Panhandle AKA LA to most who live there!

We started the South version as a request of many who live and ride in this section of the state not able to reach the far Northern tags prior to being snapped up. It is not meant to take away from the first Alabama Tag-O-Rama game, nor is it a reason not to participate in both if you wish. But if you play in our area, we ask that you post your tags here, if it is within the Green Shaded areas of the map provided. If you go North of the Green areas, post here Alabama Tag-O-Rama.



The game is simple, and you may have been reading along with other games as they've played out.

Take a look at the latest entry, if you can follow the clues, recognize the photo, and have a passion for riding, then this game is for you. Just a few simple rules and then your off.

.
#1 - Find the tag and reproduce the photo (as best as possible). The first person to post a found tag gets to place the next tag. If you get a tag, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose.

#2 - Ride to a new location, get the photo and post it here(tag). 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, geological oddities, or interesting architecture.

#3 - Tag must be (A) findable and (B) not placed on private land, (C) list condition of the road based on scale provided. Maintained gravel / dirt roads are OK, but make sure to let folks know that gravel is required to get to your tag and rate the road based on the scale. We're adv riders, but consider all may not be DS capable.

Roads are rated by this scale:

0= nice paved road
1= rough older paved road
2= maintained gravel road
3= maintained dirt road
4= unmaintained dirt or gravel road
5= double track jeep trail


#4 -File photos are NOT permitted. (File Photos defined as a photo from the past stored on your computer) Whether you are tagging or grabbing,you gotta ride to play this game.

#5- All tags must be within the Green Shaded Area. Refer to the map if you unsure as to the where the boundaries are.

#6- The 36 Hour Rule. The Poopy Peanut Rule. This rule is designed to keep the game moving. If someone makes a Grab, they have a 36 hour window to post the next Tag. If the Grabber does not post a new Tag within this 36 hour period then the last Tag is back in play for a Grab (Steal).

A)If no one makes a grab after the clock has expired, a New Tag should be placed ASAP by the Exclusive Grabber then it's Game On!

B)If someone makes the grab after the clock has expired and before a New Tag is placed it is considered a Steal, the Next Tag belongs to that person.

Found Tags on SATOR (No longer updated due to time restrictions)

Tag #1

OK Guys here we go!

Roads are rated by this scale:
0= nice paved road EASY ACCESS TO EVERYONE TO START IT OUT!

With a little google, and a little delorme, or garmin, you should be able to solve the riddle. ENJOY!

In a town where wood is gold, there lives a fella of yellow. Not a condition of his courage, nor the color of his skin, it represents an image he projects from within. He Ranes as a large provider, with wood and a diner.
Catching this tag you may discover the Hugger’s Legend and grab yourself a filling none finer. Located in what was once the largest county in Alabama over 100 years ago is ironically now one of the smallest counties in Alabama. This sleepy little Alabama town has lots of heritage.

From the photos you’ll notice there’s something to be seen, catch the tag first, then hit the diner for a bonus. Tag is just at the edge of town and diner more centrally located. They serve weekly lunch in a 50’s style soda fountain, and by night excellent dining. Hope you have fun with this starter tag.

Tag #1


Tag Looking Left


Tag Looking Right


Winter Warrior


Local Temp On Sunday


Down Town Street View


Diner Window View


Shop Windows on Diner Street









Good Luck Everyone!

Good first tag KawDlr. I like the clues you gave. I was able to find it on google maps with the street view.

Thanks!
I tried to make it interesting and hope others will take notice when they post and be more creative. I had been thinking of this location for a few weeks since I decided to go ahead with the SATOR.

I've had several people from other states have made the same claim via emails through our shop website. Not wanting to tip anyone off I think they are waiting to post when they tag it.

JOB WELL DONE!


Now we have to wait and see what Bob has in store for us.
