Good! Be waiting on new tag. I have to work days next week but am headed to the OBX on the 27th. If I get a tag it may head out east a little bit.

If you get near Fayetteville look us locals up. Maybe lunch or something.

Tag Taken

Did you know that Buzzard's Roost is really easy to find in the dark.

Just look for the lights of the cars on I-40 below.

You'll know I've been there if you survive the view.

Well the Tag and I travelled some 55 miles and found a new home.

Here's your first clue.

While viewing this memorable bit of graffiti, turn left, walk about 12 paces, look left and you can see a bit of the tag. Unless you're Cuttle or Mel, in which case standing on your footpegs might work.

Can I get there without having to get gas?

It be tight considering all the stations around the tag are completly dry! I'll bring a can of coleman fuel for the way back.

The Tag is not visible in the photo.

It is visible from the road if you're on a motorcycle and know exactly where to look. I did leave a mark on the tag. You might want to bring Phillip with you, too.

See my earlier post for the tag location clues.

I so wish I had waited a couple of hours for my first post, I was afraid I'd fall asleep and forget to post. I left a note in German which took what little brainpower I had this morning/last night.

I don't understand what you mean by "the tag is not visible in the photo"

The whole idea of the game is to replicate the photo with your own bike.
