Laugh NY Metro Dirt Tag-O-Rama

O.K., folks, enough whining and nastiness. How about a real Advrider tag game? With a dirt road, lake, water crossing, or even a mud hole involved? The main restriction will be that the tag be legally accessible and findable, within 160 miles of the Empire State Building. If not, the tag dropper will have to replace the tag.
The tag game will reward people who ride, not argue about rules.

So, in that vein, here are the relatively simple rules of this game, which will work in the winter as well as the summer:

1. Get a tag by posting a photo that reproduces the tag dropper's photo to his or her satisfaction. Must have your bike in the photo. Fully in the photo. Trailers/pickups are allowed for the boring highway asphalt trips to the dirt roads, but you are cheating yourself out of the suffering we all love! You'll know you were first, and haven't been "Bruced", because you will have found the mascot and taken it with you.

2. In order to eliminate technology, you have plenty of time to get home to post, if you don't have a smart phone or a tablet. Don't abuse this. You should post within a few hours, so that others are not on wild goose chases going for the tag and finding out the mascot is gone.

3. If the mascot is lost, stolen, etc., then the 1st person to post can pick a new mascot. Hopefully, that won't happen anymore.

That's it for rules....

YES MASCOTS ARE ALLOWED!!! (like cute little rubber ducks, or ugly penguins!)

too thin

By the way, I'd pass the tag to you, rthuey, except that it's obvious from the photo that you didn't ride there. The fellow on the bike is way too thin to be you!

And, Skip, you couldn't have possibly ridden your 950 Adventure there, because it is clearly collecting moss between the spokes. And obvious sign of inactivity and non-riding.

Either a better job of doing the ride, or a better job with photo shop please!

Actually, the waterskiing shot is pretty good, Toecutter, so I'll give you the tag!

It does, and since I know you did the ride to Assunpunk Lake, you satisfy the discretion of this tag dropper! Tag, your it!

In fact, the date on the tag might even be the date you met me there for that section of the TransNJ!

Well thanks but I will have to decline the tag as I am not going to be able to get on the bike for at least two weeks. I will be on the road and in California till the 12th. This time of year is VERY busy for me and even more so this year as my deadline was moved up 2 weeks...not good. Have fun.

Nice picture, and nice bike, Ham. Unfortunately, wrong lake, and a violation of rule number 3. No street bikes. We are trying to eliminate the whining and chat room element!

This is serious business here!

p.s., if no one gets the tag by this afternoon, it must be re-posted. Really, on such a nice day, no one wants to head down to this beautiful lake on the TransNJ trail? Hint. It is probably the halfway point, at least from a time and difficulty standpoint.

here we go again with the rules already. "didn't see where we had to have a certain figure for this thread"

i believe skip's moss in his spokes is from the water crossing. there was a lot around the edges where we were, but apparently that is an unwritten rule as well.

actually i did ride there with my nephew riding bitch. glad you noticed the family resemblance.
we were there so i could teach him how to ride. those of you that know and ridden with me have seen my bike. i had a choice that afternoon. in fact immediately after that shot was taken.
neither the bike or the neph could swim.
that was kind of a first posting honor i was giving him






tanks for screwing it up doc

Since the number one rule is pretty simple, I'll repeat it:

The FOUNDER's total and complete discretion.

Sorry, but you are whining too much. So I discretely reject your photo. I will post another tag in the morning. 72 hour rule, you know!

72 hour rule invoked!

No one got the tag, and ToeCutter graciously declined the "gimme", so here's the new tag. All the clues are in the photo, for those few who are not familiar with this classic landmark in the Pine Barrens.
