Wicked Northwestern VA Tag!

Northwestern Virginia tag...for those of us in the northwestern part of Virginia who don't want to ride forever to grab a tag. Let the game come to you!

This is roughly modeled after the highly acclaimed Valley Dual Sport Tag game found here...

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=405166



Here are some rules:

1. Tag boundary: It has changed some over the course of the game, now incorporating some of West by god Virginia!
Take a look at the map.

Tag map: NWVA TAG MAP
EDIT on 5/1/14: the map hasn't been updated in over a year. You can still use it to see where the boundary is though.


2. Tag placement:
~ The tag can be on any type of road and road surface...or even trails...(ie: Highways, Byways, Forest service trails, Legal trails) No interstates or "fee" areas. You can even incorporate a little hiking into it too! A prominent geologic feature or a trail intersection would be a good choice, waterfalls, etc. There are tons of possibilities! If the tag is placed on a rough gravel or dirt road, mention it so someone on a street bike will have a heads up.

~ Tags can be placed close to older tags, but not for the very next tag. It's got to move! If it is a previous tag, don't log in and post that it is. Keep em guessing! Have a cool spot in mind? Place it there. Don't have a clue as to where to place it? Look on the map for ideas(see the edit above).


3. Tag Photos
~ No file photos! You have to ride to play!
~ Your bike must be in at least one of the photographs.
~ Indicate the location of the mascot in at least one photograph.


4. Game play
~ If you are new to tagging, sit back and watch how it's played...It's pretty easy, then jump right in!
~ If someone PM's you for more clues and you decide to give them more they should also be posted in the thread to keep the game fair.
~ Chatter about the game, and other semi related topics is encouraged. I think it adds to the comradery of the game!




Good luck! Now let the game begin!

Just send me a blank check... I'll tell ya how!

I stopped and talked with the lady who works at my bank who rides.
She and her husband ride. I told her to check out the game. It would be great to have more local players.

As I was taking the picture of the duck on my helmet, a work truck slowed down to about 5 miles per hour and the guys inside crained their necks to see what the dude on the motorcycle was taking a picture of. You should have seen their faces when they saw the duck, I waved and laughed. I'm sure they thought it was about the wierdest thing they had seen in a long while.

New Tag

Dewey is behind my bike in the tall grass on the small berm...


A little closer shot...



See where the grass is matted down...



And here's dewy with his favorite drink...



And covered up with some grass...


Now for the clues...

Dewey is on a 600 series road that the sum of the numbers is 11.
The name of this small gravel road is the same name as an Institute for Botanical Documentation.
If you park your bike where my bike is in the shot, Dewey will be behind your bike, on the berm, covered in grass at the base of a small bush.
Enjoy the soda!

Tag on!!!

Thanks gentlemen! You may want to make a move early for the grab as I'm almost certain Bwalsh knows where it is.

Ya think?

I don't want to have a monopoly on the game. Someone else go grab this thing and get it moving!

I do like root beer though...
