Based on the lack of tracks on the hill and the way your bike's pointed- it looks like you didn't either, and took the easy way

A rebuttal and a clue...

Had to turn the bike around for the photo, you turd! And there are tracks in the snow!

As far as clues go for the new tag, the spot is definitely in the WOODS, and it is so peaceful there that you could almost imagine that you were in CHURCH near the ROAD.

Now, if that's not enough, I have the exact GPS coordinates.

Very good: you take two related things that could quite possibly be true and use them in a rebuttal to imply that a previously stated premise is incorrect. Was that covered in Prevarication 101?

It's not about the truth, Walter, it's about convincing the jury, right?

Want to put it to a vote to see who thinks you did it or took the easy way?


Regardless, it was pretty cheesy to get the tag-- this group has riders that would not have been put off by doing something two grandfathers did. Proably more an issue of time availability.

And Woodschurch Road is the best you could do?

It's my favorite dirt road in NJ, and I only had a couple of hours at lunchtime to go tagging. Sorry I didn't satisfy your standards for tagging. By the way, when was your last tag? About 6 months ago? The Big Bang Antennae?

You sure are a critical old fart, aren't you?

p.s., everyone knows that Walter and I are like Abbott and Costello, right?



I'm Abbott, by the way!

docgonzoSo, I went and got Pepe's dirt tag, since no one else had the guts to descend the nasty, gnarly dirt road known by the locals as "Coon Path". So, here's the little duck right where it was left in the hollow of the log:

Well it's nice to see you went to save your Duck & brought Santa along

Like Walter said it was a time issue. You know I would have rode to get it, but right now my Dads health matter does not allow me much free time to ride.

Also I say 1 for the easy way

New tag looks like another easy one for the motard
We'll see

Totally understand. There are a lot of things more important then our silly TOR games. I just went out today to keep the game moving, and get us back on page 1.

The Coons Path tag was actually pretty easy from either end. You would have been bored on any of your bikes. I was just making it sound hard to psych StBob and his new shiny bike out!

Hunting season has started today, and I saw tons of pick-ups parked near almost every dirt road I came to. I thought it was safer to put the tag on an easily accessible dirt road so that we wouldn't be getting shot.

Sorry if this looks too easy for most of you!

p.s., hope your Dad gets better quickly!

For your information, it was actually pretty nice from the George Washington side. And it was Walter Barlow's pick of location, so blame him if you think it was lame!

Sorry I've been teasing you about these tags. I will stop. You are the Zen master of tagging. I'm just a disciple. Please come back and play. I placed the Woodschurch Tag for you!

Got the barn

Doc, I got the barn from in the driveway

couldnt get shot from road cause it was too dark across the back yard



Was a fun ride but my GPS is garbage.

I poked around the tree grove for a little while in the dark, no flashlight



Soo.... I had to leave the ducks

Would like to go back some time during a day ride,
Did you stop and check out that old graveyard on the bend?

Nice try, USP, but no cigar. Really, these dirt tags are best done in the daytime. Hard to find stuff in the woods in the dark. You need to get the mascot to get the tag!

You have to go up on the hill, and then find the dirt road. The tree is right in the line of sight from the bike to the barn:



If you look just to the right of the brush guard on the right handlegrip, you will notice the little tree with the hollowed out spot!

shame on you doc. the rules clearly state mascots are allowed. not mandatory. nowhere does it state that the mascot is the tag and has to be gotten to win the tag.

Chris, with all due respect, since you are the Zen Master of Tag games, I didn't say he has to get the mascots. He has to reproduce the photo (angle, line of sight, etc.) and it has to satisfy the tag dropper.

And most important:

The FOUNDER'S total and complete discretion.

The mascots show you got there first, so you don't have to rush to post. USP didn't get the shot from the dirt road up on the hill.

The tag is still up for grabs. I'd suggest a daytime assault. Easy in the daytime, difficult in the dark.
