What rule #4 means is that you can't use stockpiled shots for the drop. That doesn't mean you can't take the drop shot before the grab shot. Done it many times, though usually on the same ride. I think your drop is good.

I interpret that rule more for the grab so if you had a picture of the Marshall statue from 2 years ago you can't just upload as a grab without leaving your couch. Jersey gets around it with hang a captains hat from your brake reservoir in the grab shot. Hoping this game doesn't go that route. FWIW, I am perfectly fine with this grab/drop.

You're Back!

Nice to see you're back, John. Did the arm heal up OK?

Injuries

Thanks for asking. The wrist has healed ok. Still some tenderness on the outside of the wrist where the tendon was damaged. That will go away in time. The fracture is completely healed.

I got out yesterday on two wheels (with and without engine) for the first time since the incident. Motorcycle is ok. Bicycle is ok so long as the road is smooth. Any bumps and the wrist hurts a bit.

My tags will almost always be in the city. Are we trying to keep the tags out of the city at the moment?

Last weekend I attended a party under the adjacent similar structure as part of the Hidden City Philadelphia Festival. Pretty cool.

Nope, you grab it, your free to drop your tag where you want.
But seems to be with Bikehigh out of commission and the other city
dwellers have retreated to who knows where, tags in the surrounding
counties seem to move quicker of late. ie Cats drop at the Art Museum sat for 10 days.
This one just may sit for awhile too.
my 0.2¢

I ought to be able to make some time to grab it before work this afternoon, so it won't sit that long.

Grab.

Got it. Picked this one up last night but was too tired/etc. to post it up when i got home. Not exactly sure what to call this tag but it is one of the tunnels under the old Reading Viaduct at 11th and Carlton streets.


Gonna try and head out for a drop a little later this morning.

Dammit, I was so proud of getting my first tag. Oh well, next time.

There's nothing wrong with getting your first Bruce. The main thing is you're out there riding.

drop.

Sorry Yeps. I almost feel guilty. And now I took the tag back out of the city:

ADV Tag Photos

The location of this tag began in 1981 as a gift from Horatio Myrick. The center was then 212 acres which included farmland, woodland, wetland and meadows.

Happy tagging. And remember to tread lightly!
