The weather hasn't been to favorable for riding to a tag.

Seems several people know where this is. Would be nice if somebody went there and placed a new tag. Isn't part of the challenge is placing the new tag? Not just finding the existing one.

Yep I was just there hiking,...maybe we can hope someone will post tonight as I saw two BMW's at the Stagecoach restaurant.

This was neat all the water frozen a little down from the tag picture The dirt road in looked fine but I did not go that far back on it, but by the amount of dust I would say it is not bad at all for a motorcycle.

Don't they know they're in H-D territory there?

It was a little icy, in the shade about 1/2 mile before the location but not too bad. It was a nice ride this morning. I'll get out this afternoon for a new tag.

I took it out of town a bit. All roads here are paved, but this actual driveway is gravel. Any bike can get here, given weather conditions.

Clue:

What parking lot? The castlerock dam tag was taken from the dirt road west of the park.

Castlewood Canyon Rd?? I came from the Franktown side, you must have come from Castle Rock side. Or was I in the totally wrong place?

I came up 83, then from the south side. I thought you meant you were in the park itself, where you park and hike.

Only 70% chance of snow today. Anyone gonna get out and re-tag today?

Question about how this is played

If one manages to get there first and post first, is it then OK to post a "next" picture that was actually taken a while ago, like maybe the previous summer? Or are you expected to take the "next" picture that day?

I believe the intent is to not use pictures from your inventory. I play on another forum and we have a" same ride "rule which can be a multiday ride. In other words I can get the old tag on Sat on the way to Durango, and the new tag on the way home. However both pictures must be posted at the same time.

Agreed, rule #1 has to be done first, then rule #2 done next. I would only add that #2 needs a time limit, say 24 hours. If you don't repost a new tag for others to go after within 24 hours of #1, you lose the tag and the previous tag is open again.

I don't think there is any value added to making a "same ride" rule, as long as the 24 hour rule is in place. A "same ride" could last a month. We can measure 24 hours. Well, most of us can.
