From post 5644, and seemingly agreed to by all. Nobody went for it. Not that I'm playing for points or anything. The look on everyone's face is satisfaction enough.

One person can tag both of these tags that I have in mind and carry on with the hunt? I promise they won't be border tags and they will be in neighboring counties or the same one, I haven't really checked but they are close.

The Cove Creek tag will dissolve at the end of the year and extra points will be awarded to whoever decides to fetch it before then.

What say you?

Cove Creek was two months ago. It went stale. R.D.Cat, with approval from the masses, shelved the Cove Creek tag and posted a double-or-nothing tag to get it moving again, which Team Suzuki's fearless leader Mr. Breeze grabbed. Bonus Points should be awarded to Scooter for Cove Creek (everybody knows that no one it keeping score, right?)

It has been two months, but nobody actually got the Cove Creek tag. until Scooter (nice one, by the way)
Since the CD Warehouse tag sat for a few days, I used the ol' Bike on a Trailer rule to grab it around 6am Saturday morning on the way to the LBL200. (two bikes in one tag picture, worthy of bonus points?) I really thought IHF would see the thread, grab it, and take it south.

If the Cove Creek tag was still active, it would have gone to Scooter. Richarddacat suggested we keep it moving, then Mr Breeze picked it up with the Double tag and it started moving from there.

Also, I feel kinda bad for Yamarocket for chasing me and Sandalscout around in the rain during the tag blitz last weekend. If I had thought anyone would be out in that mess we probably would not have done the back to back thing.

Bottom line, I think Piney Campground is the current tag. Since it did not leave with the LBL200 riders, I'm OK with whatever. But I want the same bonus points RichDaCat and Scooter got for the Cove Creek tag!

Yamarocket deserves a new tag, especially considering his valiant attempts in Dickson last weekend. Is there a prohibition against having two mid-TN tags in play at once?

Yamarocket, I think you should go ahead and post a tag of some kind.

Sounds good to me! Would be cool to merge the two tags somehow, huh?

I'm confused..... If we gave up on the Cove Creek tag a while back, then isn't the Piney Campground sign the current tag?

OK, I'll grab a new tag on the way to work in the AM and post it up before noon. I was in a huge time crunch and didn't get one on the way back today. This one may require a hint... but it wont be too far from the last one.

Do I get bonus points if I haul my ass up to Piney and grab that too? That would put me up to what... 2 points?

See what happens when we leave a tag hanging Now we know how AlGore felt.

IF Yamarocket decides to post a tag then it's double points to get the Piney Creek tag AND his tag or it's triple points if you get both tags and go the Fort Donelson and get a picture of a Cannon. Quadruple points if two riders tag all three while riding on dirt bikes and show up wearing your girlfriends or wife's bra, in addition to this daring challenge the pair will become the King and Queen of the Mid-Tn Pixel hunt.

Or Troy could post two tags for the price of leaving Piney hanging like I did with the Cove (extra 1000 points to Skooter to do with as he pleases ) OR he can decide what he'd like to do.

I'd like to go to Piney but it may be awhile.
Whatever y'all decide is cool with me, it's all about the ride anyway.

(BTW, I think theres a bi-law somewhere where points are deducted if you trailer your bike(s) to a tag )

Am I eligible fot these points? .....and extra bonus points for wearing wife's bra, and girlfriend's panties?
If so, I'll bring TN Steve out of retirement!

I don't think trying to run two tags would ever work. I hate the tag did not get back from Piney, but, that is the active tag. It is a good ride, and street guys will LOVE the paved road just north of Piney (2nd paved left from the campground, if you go, make time to run it. Trust me.) When your done there, hit Fat Daddy's, south of Piney.

It is about the ride. My first tag attempt was in horrible weather, rain so heavy at times you could not see, tornado warnings, (probably, I really don't remember that part) and I wound up getting Bruced by a Buell! a BUELL for crying out loud!

But again, I don't care which way it goes. It is a game. Y'all decide.

This its where JR and Bobby might decide to launch their boat if they moved WEST.

If it's not an official tag the so be it.

Tagged, West Fork boat ramp on the Stones



OK, the tag is in my court and since I started this mess maybe I can clean it up.

I should have stipulated that tagging the Cove tag should also include the current tag and things would have rolled along. If I and Skooter had done this he would have been eligible for the Mid-Tn-Itchy-Butt Award at our annual Rule #9 Whine Ball but that's spilled oil so to speak.

In all fairness and seriousness we shouldn't have two tags open, it causes confusion and may discourage riders.

Troy's Piney Campground Tag is the current tag.
(and you ain't got a hair on your butt if you don't go get it)


All in favor say "yea".

I say "yea" to that......

My vote is, all the other stuff is gone - and the Piney Campground sign is the tag.

I also think that, no matter how far way the tag is, it stays there till someone get's it.

If we start making a bunch of exceptions and new rules - the game will just turn to a free-for-all.

Rant over
