Texas Tag O Rama!

Several other states have started Tag O Ramas' so why not one from TEXAS!

Rules are easy...


#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 - Take the tag to a new location, get the photo and post it here. 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 down some nice twisties.

#3 - Tag must be a) findable and b) not placed on a dirt road. Maintained gravel is OK, but make sure to let folks know that gravel is required to get to your tag. We don't want to exclude those who don't like to get dirty.

#4 - File photos are NOT permitted. You gotta ride to play this game.

#5 - The motorcycle in the picture must get to the tag location under its own power.

Now that the rules are taken care of, here is the first tag.


Let the fun begin!

Gotcha!

Here it is:


And:


Your turn... another great eatery.



This one isn't too hard I'll give one hint for now, and more later if everyone is stuck. Should be pretty easy, all you gotta do is:

#1: "Just think about it"

Do you need more hints?

Is someone heading to north north Texas over the weekend to "tag" this?

hello, is this thing on?

I was not sure if Pics from the front sign would count?? Since I was able to pull it off.. I would vote NO!






A few snaps of the meal stop for this trip at Logans Roadhouse in Sherman:





And on to the NEXT LOCATION.. should have all the hints needed??

Question....

So if I grab a tag today... what's a reasonable amount of time until I need to have the next tag posted?

Might not get out to where I want to put the new tag until the weekend..

Don't want to n00b the game too bad.. What's the etiquette?

This is how it's done! Inasmuch as I was riding right past your tag this morning, I decided it was too easy not to "TAG".

Then I continued on to my original destination, which should be really easy, except that there are 8 of them, and all you need to do is figure out which one this is.

Here's your hint. If you draw a line from my home to the tag in Keller, and then keep going another 50 or so miles in roughly the same direction..........



And now for the new challenge.........



Ok, ladies and gentleman, who's going for it?
