Yes that is an old pic of the same location. Oldnx said it was a good tag. I'm taking that to mean i got it and it's time to post a new one. And so here is the new one

You cant really see it in the pic, but there is a second sizable river coming innfrom the left. So you are looking at two rivers mergeing. If ya need more hints let me know. The terrain is paved except for the last 30ft or so, but the last 30 was grass and packed well. But if you are scared to take ur bike to that exact spot, u are welcome to take the pic further back.

Does this look like the road in to the tag? (without the water on the pavement)

Help

I seem to be lost, was headed out the door for Slocomb now I see it has moved to Geneva. Are we allowing CANED tag pics now. The pic DILO posted was a repost from 4/25/2010 post #4272. I understand that retags are a part of the game with new players coming aboard and no up to date maps ect. But Damn at least RIDE.

Well,,,,, in the past few months, we have broken all the rules that was set up for this tagorama, so maybe we don't have rules anymore.......

Here's the rules from page one.
#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.

Does anyone see a rule that has not been broken in the last 6 months?

MY BAD I though Dilo had the tag ( he used a different pic) I always thought the No Canned shots rule is a cornerstone of the game. It makes ME get my lazy butt out of the barn.

I think Olyeller has gone after the one in Geneva,,,,,

so, how 'bout we start fresh and try to follow the original rules,

or if not, we should take a vote on what rules should be changed.

DILo must of missed or maybe they put it up after he left this sign

Sounds good to me

Thanks for clarification...

Maybe when a new guy comes on board, someone should remind / let him/her know to read rules on page one....

New TAG

A Tribute to our Armed Forces.

P.S. I met a new tagger this morning going into the river junction. I did not reconize the bike so I did not give much thought to turing around. Hope they continue to play and welcome to the game.
