-Brian
No contest about getting up early(although I would probably win that one), after lunch might not give us time to hit all the Tags, although we could just ride faster.

"Livingston County Dirt Road Tag-O-Rama"?? I'd be up for that for sure.

I'll second that. That would be a good sized loop. There are tags in almost every nook and cranny of the county now. Great idea!

I think the group of five that I was leading today went past four or five of the Tags, that's what gave me the idea.

Feedback please!
When, and where to meet? Set it up....soon before it snows.

Tag Tour?

Well I just counted all the tags and it looks like there are 40 so far. Now I just have to figure out where they all are, pin them to a mapsourse map and try to come up with a route.

I may need some help from some of you taggers on the tags that were a little vague. So in the meantime if you think your tag was one of the vague ones please feel free to send me the gps coordinates if you have them.

Hi guys,

Have fun with the ride. I would love to tag (pun intended) along, but I will be out of town for the next few weeks. I'll be in Maryland doing the family thing.

Either works...

Maybe someone can pull off a "double tag" in one shot

I'd be up for a Livingston tag. I mentioned including it in this game to expand the bounderies a bit but was shot down earlier on. Considering I'm at the far north east part of Livingston, Washtenaw is just a bit too far out of reach for those quick hour or two rides and when I have more time I end up going north anyway so these are usually eluding me.


At least I'm enjoying watching.

I would get in on the Livingston tag, I'm actually in the south-west corner of Oakland County, one mile from Livingston and two miles from Washtenaw.county. I have some dirt buddies out that way I'll try to get them interested.

I went with DIRTSCOOTER on a GLDS ride a few months ago. It was a blast. Here's a video if anyone's interested. Only the first couple minutes are on pavement. https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B2D...VZIQTBneS0zSW8

I rode the tri state adventure a few months ago.
It was a pretty good route, the tri state border area with the inscribed rock was neat.
