Yes, I know we have a North American TOR and it is seeing some epic journeys, but I propose a USA only TOR with the goal of getting the mascot to all 48 lower states and maybe even AK provided it is a round trip, not a drop.
I plan to kick this TOR off tomorrow by dropping the macot off in an area of the Maryland Eastern Shore that has some very beautiful roads to ride. I will caution whom ever goes after it to check the tide charts first as a few places can see a couple of inched of water on the road at high tide.
The first mascot - He was lost or stolen. The new Mr. Nut rides on.
The rules ( basically lifted from Blinkerfluid's game)
Rules for this version:
NOTE - Your bike must be in the grab and drop shots - this means your bike and the area Nutsy is hidden MUST be in the photo. Your bike does not need to be in the detail photos of where Nutsy is hidden.
For example; when I dropped Nutsy off to start this game, I gave you a shot (with my bike in the picture) of the little pavilion he was in and than gave you some detail photos of his exact hiding spot.
REMEMBER - this is a motorcycling game, if you cannot get your bike close enough (legally) to have the hiding spot and the bike in the picture then pic a different spot.
#1 File photos are not allowed.
#2 Dirt is allowed; however, let everyone know that the route to the tag includes dirt roads. Also, use your judgement on placing the tag to ensure that someone else will most likely come and get it, i.e. don't turn this into the "lets see who can find the most obscure tag location in history" thread.
#3 Tag mascot is required to claim the tag. Tag claims must be posted within 12 hours of the 1st "bruced" photo. In the event no official tag claim is made within 12 hours, the person with the 1st "bruced" photo gets the tag and the honor of picking out and putting into play a new nut. If this person does not put a new nut into play with 1 week of their "bruced" shot then ANYONE can get a new nut and get the game moving again. No grab shot needed for this, you just need to be the first.
# 4 The please don't be an
rule. If you grab Nutsy, take him on an adventure, drop him and then leave him. Document the adventure so the rest of us know what is going on with Nutsy. If you grab him and cannot make your dream drop then just drop him somewhere (the landscaping in your front yard would work) as other want to play.
--- 4A If you grab him and then we hear nothing from you for one week the same this applies as in rule 3; after one week, ANYONE can get a new nut and get the game moving again. No grab shot needed for this, you just need to be the first.
Rules may be modified or added later if it is determined that they are needed to promote movement of the tag.
