You could always start a trail tag this spring. It might help spread the word on some cool trails. The only problem is it will spread the word on the cool trails. Sadly, increased traffic and use of cool trails might make them become not bike friendly.

I think this was discussed and decided it would be to difficult to identify places not on labeled roads. I suppose we could do roll chart tag, enduro style tags. Now Ohio moto geocaching could catch on. You'd need an item to be moved from location to location as well as a tag and new location photo and GPS location. It would certainly stop the phone tagers who can tag a spot as soon as they get there.

At least off pavement on gravel roads. I understand it is designed to allow everyone a chance at it by keeping it on the asphalt. The NEO guys have a GPS tag but I quit following it also since I rarely ever ride north except to ride the Cuyahoga Valley which happened to be the only tag I did. That tag is also relegated to the pavement which makes sense since I think only 1 or 2 of them have a DS bike.

The geocache idea may have merit. Walmart sells air- and water-tight boxes for under $10 which would be ideal for hiding an object and including things like stickers for the finder to keep. And yes, it would balance things out for the technophobes.

I think the US tag game does the same thing. I know last winter I got it at the AMA museum after Shawn had went to visit it and them moved it to the Longenburger (sp?) basket area on my way to Toby's garage day. With as many Ohio players as we have I think we could support two tag games at once.

I'd love an off road / gravel version. Hell, I think it should be allowed now in the main game. Even my mom can ride her Vespa on gravel.

I vote a geo-cache style on all terrains, if for no other reason than it eliminates the smartphone/wifi advantage.

Some people like the way the current OH tag works, no problem with that but the other style game sounds more funner and stuff.

Didn't mean to stir up a hornets nest, just made a comment. At this time, even if the tag was in my own back yard, I'd probably either, forget, not have enough time or get Bruced.

You all do what you want, I just play as time and distance allows being that I am in an overlapping fringe on the far sides of the Farnsy and NEO tag zones.

If my truck doesn't get back from the under coating place this evening, I'll be 2 wheel snow surfing into the snow belt tomorrow morning for my surgical follow up. Can't wait to see the Docs face if that happens!!

Only problem with the geo-cache thing I see is I don't know how to do it. Can you guys just give me the directions and put a huge sign next to the location?

My minions will be along shortly to clean up.
