Also, I have edited the rules in the first post of this thread to improve game flow and reflect what I believe is a fair compromise between the positions of the players. Feel free to discuss them, and I'll be happy to change them if anyone feels they need further adjustment.

Updated Tag Map

Valley Dual Sport Tag-O-Rama Map

I was away this weekend but will be keeping up with this in the future. Looks like there was some action while I was gone. If "last stand" is free tonight, I will dodge deer by highbeam headlight.

Also for all you map-freaks out there, check out this free orthophotography, making school bus identification easy.

New Tag

Clues:
This tag is located West of the only "Volcano" remnants in this county. This low water crossing is located along a three digit route where the sum of the second and third digits equal the first. This section is named for the "bridge" in the shots.

NEW CLUE: It is near one of the first Mennonite churches to hold Sunday schools in 1869

Tag Shot: (Could not get lighting right so this is the one "With the Bike" Use other photos for better ID)
From Valley_Tag_2


Some Additional Shots:

KTM is on the flat rock on the SouthWest side of the bridge.

Seen here in this bottom picture just barely...I will use MS Paint in the future to edit in an arrow but I am too cold and hungry right now.

743 and 734 are in the area as well, but I thought they were paved too. My GPS kept falling off, so I eventually put it in the tank bag and just went exploring.
I did find two high water crossings, but none on mathmatically correct route numbers. Did find some nice places to place another tag, though.

Anyone else got any ideas? I'm sure it's not that hard--I'm just really bad at this game.

The tag is on a section of the road which is dirt but the majority of this route is paved. I would have placed it farther out on a more "Dirt" road but I was trying to get back and out of the snow at the time. It is on one of the roads you did not ride but listed. Hope that helps others out.

Sometimes this river is wet, other times it is ___

grab and new tag

Yep, it was the slab.





TAG:

The road will take you to a new height if you go up the hollow on this 2 digit road that totals 10.

Got it! Just may have to make a run for it...

On second thought, I'd rather not dodge deer at night. Did the KTM make it?

No matter...it can get sort of complicated and is easy to forget. Just hold on to it until the next tag you place.

Doesn't look like I will have any daylight to ride out there until this weekend. Have at it!
