Too bad the little hut building tag is gone. That's a good one. I have a nice little bar near me called "The Half keg Tavern". The place is tiny and they only serve canned beer. Very odd, but a good place to get off the radar.

My wife volunteered last night. Said she'd get all dressed up in a leather mini and pose in seductive positions for the shot but it was raining cats and dogs...she drew the line when the foul weather came into play.

Maybe I'll get lucky tonight

This picture came out pretty horrible. So much for a good "first tag" in this game.
haha

Assuming that last one was a valid grab, here is the next tag.

Anything rocket powered. (not jet, rocket)

So the real question, can Flash or STBNE grab the same exact spot for this one?
Or does it have to be another rocket? If another, ermm, not sure where one is around here.

Nothing says we can't return to this tag at a later date!

You know, when the wildcard games first started I'm certain there was a rule where the same exact thing couldn't be tagged. I know because a buddy of mine did that and got a rash of s!*t for it.
It happened a couple weeks back and I was going to say something but when I looked at the first post I didn't see anything saying you couldn't.
I don't see why you couldn't use the same thing. It would be unfair to exclude someone from the game because of this. If it were up to me, I'd say, GO FOR IT!

there is a matador (TM-61C Matador, Serial # 56-1955) on display near goldsboro, not far from the site where the plane crashed in 1961 and the MK39 hydrogen bomb crashed into the farmers field, breaking up into lots of smaller bits (they still survey the ground water in the area once a year or so.... never got back all of the radioactive bits I guess).

Pikeville, nc .... 43 minutes from zebulon.

I say make it a little tougher. Make it a rocket in flight.


Do, uh, model rockets satisfy the requirements? If so, I think I can grab this one in the next couple minutes...

I ate mexican food tonight, and I'm bigger than my bike. Will a picture of me on my bike do?

I am so debating going after this tonight. If it were just a little warmer out there I wouldn't hesitate but it'll be nearly 3 hours on the road in descending temperatures at night...I'm too damn comfy in front of the wood stove right now.

Indecision...

Not knowing what a Matador was, I looked into it. According to wikipedia, it's a turbojet powered tactical missile. Don't know if that fact disqualifies it or not, but I'm going to wait for a ruling before heading to Pikeville.
