You did a good job burying it, I was crawling around with a flashlight for 15 minutes. Found the correct rock after five minutes, flipped it over, but could not see the ziploc bag. I was wishing I had the heated grips and a heated jacket on the way home.

I tried to put it just under the surface. It probably sat there long enough for geological processes to create more earth from decaying bio-matter.
Or some such garbage...

That pic also gets the USA College Sports Tag. Drop it at Va Tech. Or VWCC. Or...

New tag.










RAT is under the siding on the side that faces the road. Pushed her up in there a couple of inches, you cannot see her if you are standing there.

For myself, it is hard to believe that this Tag Game is not yet one year old. Great having it, one of my favorites. Thank you to the op!

Had a feeling this was going to be a good game. LOTS of fantastic riding in that area. Wish I could get in the middle of it more.

My riding area is usually the northern part of the NC-NC game and the southern part of the Roanoke game. I wish the NCNC game had something like the rat to drop off, does away with the file tags.

Warning: Opposing viewpoint on file tags alert!!!

I like using file tags as it gives me a chance to drop a tag instantly in another part of the region and let someone else have an immediate shot at it. The "you have to ride to play this game" argument is specious. I rode to get the tag, the file tag and someone gets a quicker chance to ride to get the new tag. It keeps games moving much more quickly. Look at the VA game to see one that gets ground to a halt more than any other game I play.

I love riding in a lot of parts of VA and have some great pics all over the southern half of the state. If I go grab the VA tag, I have to place it on the return ride home. By definition, it's not going to move much. The folks that weren't chasing it due to its location still aren't going to be chasing it. I've seen that game sit for over a month on a good number of occasions.

The Triangle game that I live in the middle of, in contrast, can move a half dozen times/day. Personally, I'd much rather see an active game than one that sits due to being mired up in a ridiculous rule.

You've got a good point, I too had rather see it moving more. I actually thought it wasn't moving because there just wasn't that many active members. When the spot gets moved farther away there are different people playing it, good point.

This particular tag is on one of the absolute best riding roads in the area. Fantastic scenery, fantastic road. Best to access from US 460. North Fork Road. Lots of tight turns and not a lot of traffic. Church is on the right if you enter from 460.

Interesting points, WB, and some truth in what you say. But really, the "no file photo" rule is there to promote the whole idea of these game, which is to get folks out to ride. Its kinda oxymoronic to say a game is "active" just because it moves around a lot, but when the tags are "file tags" and posted without getting out and riding, how "active" is that? I only wish I had more time these days to get out and ride. When I retire again, I think I'll designate one day a week as Moto Day and then I can play some Tag
