I wish I had noticed this yesterday. I was only a couple of blocks away coming back from the NC tag in Salisbury. I could have pushed the WR up the street!!

or I can't decide. Either way it is just a tag game. I guess I should have left the tag down east. I'm looking out over Back Sound at Cape Lookout from the house on Harkers Island as I type this and it is really nice down here this time of year.

I was going to try for this today. I've got to head to Greensboro to drop off the niece and was just going to ride while the wife took the cage. Alas, it is cold and rainy down here. I'm not going to torture myself today when it will be sunny tomorrow.

you also wouldn't be able to get close to it until after 6pm. Streets are blocked off.

Unless..... Hey! I know! I will ignore the file tag rule AND am abusing the non written rule of actually being there and not using street view and bad picture editing skills!

this game just got awesome!

The tag is all mine I tell ya! ALL mine!



Where to next? Moon? mars rover site? what?

I feel pretty confident in my ability to access closed off streets. I just throw the dog in the Ural, he does all the negotiating for me.

Bryson is my secret weapon.

Raining in GSO. However, riding wet and cold sounds a lot more appealing than handling a 1yo in Macy's while my wife shops for pants. I should have bailed and rode with the dog. :(

looking at the map for the festival, one of the main stages was placed next to the tag, so I imagine it was crowded with vendor booths and pedestrians.

We'll never know I suppose. I think my grab could be considered valid.... just ignore a rule and then say "it's only a tag game"

I'd like to place the next one in Russia, any takers?

A duet now?

1. The game stalled at Fort Macon for 25 days and no one seemed willing to ride down and get the tag.

2. I rented a scooter while on vacation close by to revive the game.

3. I posted a new tag that would be difficult to get but not impossible for about 50 hours. It also happened to be the only file tag I had on my laptop and tablet.

4. I offered to change the tag to a new location accessible 24/7/365 (see post #159 on this thread). The only inmate who chimed said this about the current tag; "I say we roll with the tag". That inmate also happens to be the inmate who started this tag game.

5. Breathe in, breathe out and move on. It is only a tag game.

I'm going to try to make a run for this today after I catch up on my brewing.

And now it starts storming. I've got to stop telling Mother Nature about my riding plans. Riding in 50 degree weather with rain is EXACTLY why I left Germany.

I rode thru Asheboro a couple hrs ago. Too cold and wet to stop. Left Fontana in the rain this morning, never really got out of it. Blew right thru Asheboro. Just glad to be home.

Yeah, today sucked. Kudos to you for even getting out and riding in it. I couldn't even bring myself to suit up.
