North American Tag-O-Rama!

So these Tag games seem to be pretty popular, but so far they've been limited to a specific state or regional area. I thought it would be a good game to open up tagging to anywhere in North America. The idea behind this game is to Tag some of the best locations in the country. I'd like to see it go from Coast to Coast, so as such I'll post the first tag shortly on the East Coast.

Rules for this version:

#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 Have fun!

EDIT: Blah! I hate too many rules, but I suppose they're necessary.

Additional Rules:

#4 Tag mascot (i.e. blockhead, chicken, etc.) is required to clame the tag. Please post your "bruced" pictures even if the tag mascot has already been taken. Tag claims must be posted within 12 hours of the 1st "bruced" photo. In the even no official tag claim is made within 12 hours, the person with the 1st "bruced" photo gets the tag and the honor of choosing the next Tag mascot. (does that make any sense??)

#5 Read the Rules, understand the intent of the game. Quality not Quantity. If you want to tag a stop sign at the corner of "I'm impatient" and "Hurry Up" roads just to up the tag count, play a local game instead.. There are no rules that say you can't play more than one game at a time, so if this one sits for a week or two while the stars align for a big move, then so be it.. Obviously don't sit on it for weeks on end if you have no plans to actually take it somewhere though.

Rules may be modified or added later if it is determined that they are needed to promote movement of the tag.

If you don't know how the Tag game works, please review some of the other Tag games that are currently in play:

This should be a very interesting thread.

Great idea, Blinkerfluid.

Great idea! Wouldn't ya know that my parents live within 15 minutes of the 1st tag and they're in Fla! Would have been funny to see Dad on my bike getting his 1st tag...

Great idea...I like the potential dirt aspect, I hope it jumps around the country a bunch already out of my range but, maybe, just maybe,
I'll get a shot at it sometime, somewhere....it will be cool to see where it goes and how often....

The chicken was right under the rocky ledge about 3 feet from the sign towards the tower. The tag photo shows it exactly...

No chicken...

I went by there on the way back from grabbing the ALTOR tag,



but after assisting with posting that Micaville tag, the wife told me the Na tag was already posted. "Darn it Jim!!!" Wish I had known the "chicken" was still there.

Chickens

I almost ran over these chickens. I turned around to see which one was the North American Chicken and they ran off.
