Cool to see this moving so fast suddenly. I'm a little worried about what happens when this rolls up into the Northeast region.

This is my first time chasing a tag; I hope to find this tag tomorrow. Looks like it is only about 150 miles from me!

Out chasing Historical Markers (check out the WV Historical Markers thread - we're up to about 650+) Great ride to southern WV last weekend - Logan, Matewan, Williamson, Huntington, Pt Pleasant, Parkersburg, then back home to Clarksburg.

Great tag location you got there - you really do have to see it in person to understand how big those things really are! I'd go get it but I'm playing organ at a church in Fairmont this morning then we're spending the afternoon with our son at WVU. Good luck and have a great ride!

That's about as low elevation wise as the Appalachian tag has been. Looks like less than 500'. Interesting location and certainly recognizable. I don't think I'll make it that far north this weekend so somebody else will have to grab that one.

not sure, but I think that's out of the boundaries in post 1

I'll send a map to DeGeeze for a ruling since he started the thread, but looks to be 20-25 miles outside the area.

I know the boundary is not well defined, since the map in post 1 isn't large enough to zoom in very much, but I pulled a line outside the boundary (for a margin of error) from a large landmark south to one north north on both maps.

I'll be glad to send them to you to look at, pm me your email.

I'm not posting them here in case I'm overruled and someone doesn't know where this is

edit: oh doG
here I am posting a complaint right after Silverwolf again

maybe I should STFU??
