Definately.

He knows Virginia like few others I've met, and he's smart enough to figure out the clues.

And most importantly, he appears to not have an actual job, which means he can ride 24/7/365.

I'll throw out 1 tip:

Sometimes the tricky clues can get laborious. You're sitting there trying to figure it out and it dawns on you that, "fuck it, I could be riding."
Sometimes we just put the road and say it's between city #1 & city #2. The road is always a kickass road, the tag is sometimes secondary. Or the picture of the clue is very obvious to find.

Have fun

If you have proven yourself not once, not twice, but thrice. And if you affirmed your postion with a slew of folks from the place of rain and coffee, and if you assaulted your secretary after receiving a citation on your last trip to Omaha, then you are certainly gallant and sly.

This tag is located along a 2 digit route which is an even number, though when you add the two digits together, they are equal an odd number.

The county is named after a British Queen, who was married to a British King for which another Virginia county is named.

The tag location is important, but so is the sign that is in front of the site.


well I know the road and county should I piss melton off again and go get it in the rain???

No dirt. Gravel roads and dirt roads are different.

Maintained gravel roads are fine. (It would be a good idea to let folks know if a gravel road is needed to get the tag, though)

The roads like you and I took on the "short cut" to BYOB would be considered dirt.

I think the problem with dirt is that people then try to outdo each other on how inacessible they can make the clue.

People wind up getting stuck, wrecking bikes, or it becomes a dual sport only game.

I'd really like for our game to evolve into the game the Ohio boys have. Just being able to give some road numbers of a twisty road and say it's between here and there would be great.

Tag meet ups in small towns for some pie or a quick ride would be fantastic for the future.

Check out Farnsy's tag thread in the Ohio forum.

Once it gets rolling, weekends will be just as good as any day. Eventually somebody will take the tag up to norhtern VA.

Hopefully the game will take off.

I had a blast yesterday and Tuesday.

I like the idea of it getting farther afield. If nobody does the tag before I get some time to ride I'm going to see if the players would allow me to move it west a few miles.

I'd really like for our game to evolve into the game the Ohio boys have. Just being able to give some road numbers of a twisty road and say it's between here and there would be great.
