Opps...

So many pictures.. It's just too hard.....

Nope, didn't even look for it. Went straight to the damn pump. Thought it was weird that two games would be using the same tag - different views. Oh well, the new guy screws the pooch. If it's still in play - no problemo. Just let me know.

Yes. That is the case. The East tag is still in play. And road toad has 21 days to place the ABC tag in Iredell. It's no big deal. Gives somebody a chance for a nice ride.

Well, that both sucks and is funny...

At least the ABC tag is on the move. That one got pretty stale.

Welcome to the game(s).

Nothing new. Very cool that you made the long distance grab. I have a tendency to stop once or twice to check on them whenever heading more than an hour or two.

This was his first time up. Not a bad start. That's a good trick to know WB. My first tag, I had to get chad to post it for me. NC has a bunch of tag games going with overlapping boundaries. It's getting complicated.

Yep. I keep a Word doc with all the tags on it and try to plan a route around it on the weekends.

Google it. Locate it. Google Map it. See what it takes to get there. If I'm interested, I then plug it into Zumo, make sure Zumo is in "no boring roads" mode, and haul ass. If it's more than an hour, I might check Tapatalk on the way, but if I'm committed to ride there, I'm probably riding there regardless of a Bruce.

I don't have the capabilities to check or post from the road. It is ride snap a pic and ride back to post up. I have had my share of brucing.

Help a new guy here.. Brucing Guessing that's someone posting your grab before you get a chance to claim it. Seems like that would be part of the game - so to speak.

Let's say two or more riders grab the same tag. The first one to post it on the website owns it. The others are " Bruced" . They were there but didn't get the tag. I think there is a story behind the adjective Bruce tho. Maybe the first guy it happened to was named bruce, don't know that for a fact tho.

That will probably happen to me on Saturday. I'm planning on a ride to Floyd to go for the Lair of the Dragon tag on my way to plant the ABC Tag in Iredell County. It's a bit of a ride to Floyd - and there is some chatter about some guys trying for it on Saturday. Bruce may be callin...

Going to warn you now that I was planning on going for the one in Floyd on Saturday too, but know of someone that's going Friday - tomorrow. Got a reasonable idea where it may end up and it's in the same region, but a bit further out. Great roads and trying to decide if I can make the trip.

I did have a weekend ride planned out with an overnight in either Wytheville or Roanoke, but it looks like that's fallen through. Probably just going to be a long loop at this point. The NCNC tag is about 25 miles from Floyd and it *may* last until Saturday.

Feel free to shoot me a PM if you're definitely going for one or the other. I may (pun intended) tag along. Probably going to go to the site of the NCNC regardless of whether it's already been grabbed or not.
