I thought about moving for him, and weather is great in Houston, but beyond Dallas is totally different story

I say make the grab and head north Digiamo , because all I hear is big-talk and no action. Wait and see seems to be wait and sleep. The sooner you give this new egg some credos and history the sooner the big-boys will play again (unless they are too old to saddle a bike now {just egging on
here}). If I am being provocative here I apologize not.
I would be honored to make the grab from you Digiamo with-in a 200 mile radius of Baltimore if you decide to bring the egg north.

Thanks
Chris

I understand completely the desire to do what is necessary to keep the game active but even I have to say it feels a little odd taking requests for drop locations close to FF's houses.
Interesting concept though, even given the fact that many of us here in ADVland pride ourselves on our riding through great distances and many obstacles of weather and road (and non-road) conditions. In many cases, for not much more reward than a meal with a friend. As such, I would be embarrassed to request a drop near me, except in cases where I need to grab Cosmo before a big trip.
This TOR has the widest range of any I know and it requires the participation of riders with wide ranges

I am reluctant to grab my own egg drop.
Given that, if I were traveling north with Cosmo, my nagging desire is to drop him really close to TH's house. A little proximity visit with Our Precious

I wouldnt worry about folks making request. Tis done all the time and mostly ignored. Or not. The guy with the egg is in charge.

Put that thing out is sling-shit nowhere under something interesting and make us go get it!!

I have to agree with Digiamo. Besides, the game always has a dull spot come the end of winter.

You guys are hilarious

Get your own tagwhat's the point

You place the tag in suburbia hell and expect someone to go get it Did it once, the traffic has kept me away from Jupiter, I would rather enjoy riding than battling with cages.

Perhaps the tagger should post in the area forum when the tag is in someones area. I'd guess there are 4 million people within an hour ride of the current location

It absolutely is. Just not one of the parts I like.

Laugh Ride the World already

Helpful feedback. Thank you Mr. grumpy icon.

Let me add another possibility why TAG's stall in addition to reasons such as "I don't wanna ride far" or "I don't wanna ride in certain environs". "The road is too rough" or "The road is to smooth and straight". "Too much traffic...blah blah"
We all have ridden traffic for less reason than a wide ranging TAG pick-up run.

Negative feedback to active players is a turnoff and does not encourage new people to get involved.

Look, the logo phrase on the opening page of this Forum is: Adventure Rider, Ride the World. Well, the world includes all those place and for we adventurers our goal is to, I thought, ride places we never were before. It's not always going to be a fire road at the top of a tall mountain. There could be any or all of those conditions along the way to the ideal mountain top drop location.

I said it before, I say it again if you don't like the current drop location, grab Cosmo and change it.

It will also have the effect of getting me off rant mode. OK, I'll shut up...at least until the next critic chimes in.
