I'm sorry that I've created such an issue.
I can say that I prefer having a "cache" item with the tag. As others have stated. It levels the playing field as their would be no technology advantage, and their would also be no need to ride like crazy just to get home to post the tag.
I was going to take the tag and place it somewhere on the Natchez Trace Parkway, but I think I'll take ST-Rangers advice and place it where there is an active TOR. So look for the chicken to show up somewhere in Georgia next.
