Appalachian Tag-O-Rama for those that think vertically.

I've been having fun with the East TN tag and the NC tag but those of us living near the edge of those two states sometimes want something different. I copied these rules from RidgeRunner's NC Tag since it's so active and is working quite well.

I'm thinking of the entire Appalachian area. Try to keep it close to this:



The game is simple, the rules are easy, the goal is to get people out riding. With the goal in mind, please dont make the clues so hard that we have to surf longer on the net than we have to ride to get the tag. So here are the rules .

#1 FILE PHOTOS CAN ONLY BE USED TO PLACE A TAG NOT TO GET THE TAG.

#2 THE PHOTOS OF THE TAG SHALL BE AS CLOSE TO THE PREVIOUS TAG PHOTOS AS POSSIBLE. That means that the tagger needs to make sure that his photo can be shot be anyone on any bike. The taggers bike needs to be in the photo. So I think that if a road is goverment maintained and legal to ride then it is fair game. Gravel or not. Also tell us where the tag was.

#3 NO WHINING ABOUT IT BEING TOO FAR. If you think it is too far go get it and bring it back to your part of the state. Trust me I will.

#4 TAG MUST BE FINDABLE. If a tag is standing too long you will be asked to post a clue or a new tag. New tag must be posted no later than 24 hrs of the posting of your tag. You will forfeit your tag to the previous tagger. Lets keep the game moving.

#5 HE WHO POSTS FIRST WINS. It dont matter if you got to it first, he who post first wins the tag

That should be enough rules. So lets have fun and ride safe. All rules are subject to change if the larger part of the inmates think that it should change. Lets go play TAG!! Remember to make it fun and try to find historical sites or some kind of noteworthy landmark. Even more fun if we get a history lesson with the game.

I'll start with this one and make it easy just to get the ball rolling.



Sharp folks'll point out that I'm already playing loose with my location rules. FUN is the point.





You may find yourself Lured to stay here if you come get this one.

I said I wanted the first one to be easy. Kinda hot for a run now though. Yikes! I've been showing 95 degrees here for several hours now and I usually get lower readings here.

Of course the cool waters of that Lake might just Lure somebody out into an adventure.

Cool tag game idea! Keep it in the mountains. This encompases SE and NE regional forums but if it get's up that way they'll just have to come and find this game in here.

I say file photo's suck but what do I know.

Thanks. It should give someone an excuse to run through the mountains at least once.

File photos are a tough call but they can help the tag move more quickly and to be honest it's tough to say when you see a photo whether it's a file photo or not. Of course snow in the photo this time of year here in the Smokies would be pretty telling.

Now go get a tag!

I think the only extra clue I need to add is that you will not have to pay to get to this tag.

Not much better up here in PA. We hit 94F in York today.

You know, the Appalachians do run all the way up to Maine...

True. Posted from Glen Lyn so I would only have to backtrack 5 miles of gravel this time. Glad not to have to.
